Hi Friends – Happy Friday!
It has been a quiet week here. Cold, windy, quiet…more winter.
I saw this video on the Facebook page of a blogger friend – she writes at Old Blue Silo. I think the video is beautiful, heartbreaking & inspiring. If you have a couple minutes to burn – watch it!

“The Papa Book”
This week I’ve been working on “the Papa book.” (That is not the final title – it is just what I call the book until I come up with a real title.)
I’m going to a writing retreat in a few weeks, so I was getting the manuscript ready to send off for review. Now that it is gone, I have a bit of a break to work on other things; such as scanning photos for the book.
I’ve been dreading this task since I borrowed the photos from my Grandmother at Christmastime. Thursday, I worked on getting my taxes ready and scanning photos – talk about a tedious day! I think I did several hundred pictures.
(I need to get a bottle of wine to celebrate finishing that tedious task. Next, if I can just get my taxes finished!)
Two of my favorite photos that I found while rummaging through the scrapbooks are actually of me and my grandpa. I love are the captions included on the back.
The second one might even be better…
I love that my grandpa is holding me – at just a month or two old – and watching a cattle auction on TV. This might have been my first cattle auction. Who knows? Obviously, I don’t remember!
Gotta get them started young!
What a great tribue Sierra. I hope you get your manuscript published.
It is wonderful that you have completed your book about your Grandpa.
Hi, well…it is not quite completed yet. But, it gets closer every day! 🙂
Love the video Sierra and the pictures of you and your grandpa. I just know that your book will be great. I never experienced the blessing of a grandpa…both of mine were deceased when I was born. So, I can’t wait to hear about yours!
