B’Lated “Birthday Post” for Tegan

Tegan is rather reclusive when it comes to picture taking! I’m really searching for some pics of him but, sadly, don’t have hardly any recent ones.

He disappears out in the forests and into the life he loves and this makes it hard to capture him in photos! I’m going to work on this now that I live nearby

This fits Tegan to a “T”

When Tegan was a LOT younger, many moons ago, Harv snd I came up for a visit. Tegan had a telescope type thing set on the dining room table aimed at the mountains up by “the high road” overlooking Pioche. He had a trap set snd could actually see it from a long ways off.

When we were going to leave to go home, he asked if we’d drop him off on the highway up there. We drive him to where he asked yo be dropped off and I was really stunned as this youngster got out and watched him trudge up the mountain in knee-deep snow snd disappear into the forest! I thought, he’s too young!

Tegan really has never been “too young.” He was born a mini adult!

As I said, I don’t have a lot of recent photos of Tegan sadly but will post the ones I have that depict his love of the great outdoors and his lifestyle

He loves you too. I always pray for your safety (& all my g’kid’s safety; wherever you wander.)

Happy Birthday (yesterday) Tegan! You were supposed to be born on my b’day. That’s pretty cool!

• Published writer that used to contribute a monthly article on any given subject to my local newspaper. I am no longer doing this and miss it. • Owned my own custom paint store, "Wild Woods". I called it "wall art" that consisted of murals, glazing, faux painting and also painting vinyl garage doors to look like wood or metal; usually copper. • Have had an interesting past 14 years living off the grid in a remote area in Southern Utah near the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in a progressive community that held many informative events with guest speakers, including a number of published authors, and hands-on exercises in various self-sufficient living. No longer living there. • I have another blog about grandparenting. This is a subject near and dear to my heart nowadays. *As part of "the sandwich generation", I was caught between helping my adults kids (usually with their kids) as well as caring for an elderly parent, my mother, who was suffering from dementia. I want to do some writing on the aspect of full time care givers to people with Alzheimer's as well. I feel I have learned a lot about this. ~ What a Juggling Act! Somewhere with all those balls up in the air, my own dreams had been put on hold for too long and now, after losing my mother just recently, and my grandkids in school, I hope to rekindle them. My husband and I are super busy doing major remodeling jobs on a house we purchased two years ago as well as extensive yard work. The house and yard projects, which include the restoration of an old cottage built in the 1800's that sits on the far, back corner of our three-fourths acre lot we own are keeping us both really busy. Amidst the ongoing projects, I try to squeeze in a moment here and there to work on my blogs. Creativity has always been an essential part of who I am and when I stop doing things like this, I feel like a robot mechanically moving around, just getting the necessities done. Art, Music, Writing, Gardening, Home Interior Decorating, Water Activities like swimming and kayaking are the things I crave and try to find time to do. We have to "make it a good day"!
