SAYING GOOD-BYE FOR THIS YEAR....TO GOD'S COUNTRY............





I HAVE POSTED BEFORE ABOUT MY LOVE OF MONTANA.....


my love of the land....the lake and mountains...and the people....can't say enough good things about all the folks we have met.....



the sweet small towns.....the stunning flowers





SWEET COTTAGES THAT HAVE BEEN SPIT AND POLISHED TO THEIR ORIGINAL SPLENDOR...



BECAUSE MONTANA HAS MORE COWS THAN PEOPLE....
(O:

THERE IS A SENSE OF CALM AND PEACEFULNESS HERE IN THIS VAST BEAUTY OF GOD'S CREATION...
I WILL SURELY MISS IT........
have a calm and peaceful weekend dear friends..

Jo

  3. You are making me cry. I want to scream "Dont Go" but I know you must. I know you will miss the cool fresh air that fills you up and makes you tilt your head toward heaven and take a deeper breath and thank God for such a beautiful place.

  5. Whitefish, Flathead Lake & Bigfork hold many wonderful memories for our family. Fly fishing, huckleberry picking, summer stock theatre, neighborly folk, good times. I bet you'll miss it! I keep prolonging my winter trek back to Phoenix. Soon it will be down to just a week or two!!

    First time visit to your lovely blog. Have a good weekend.

  8. My dear sweet Jo,

    I love a quiet and peaceful place, and as I get older, that is all I yearn. Being a teacher, I still enjoy the buzz of the classroom, but once that bell rings, I seek PEACE! Montana looks like a charm; Minneapolis is quite the place too with its lovely lakes. Have a fabulous weekend. Anita

  9. I don't fully understand. But I guess you spend summer months, in Montana. And then move elsewhere, for the rest of the year...

  10. Hi Jo Sweetie...

  11. Calming would be the understatement. How serene, this little town. There is nothing like a small town to make someone feel at home. Very little pretentiousness, laid back people. Hugs. Tammy

  17. Jo, I am sooo
    right there with
    you. I haven't
    been to Montana
    in years, but it
    captivated my heart,
    similar to the way
    the Pacific NW makes
    me feel. Must be
    that wide-open sky
    and the PEOPLE are
    wonderful. You have
    had another fantastic
    voyage to share with
    us all ~ thanks for
    letting me come along!
    xx Suzanne

  18. Jo,
    Montana looks absolutely heavenly!My husband and I have been talking for months about heading out West one of these days....
    I too seek peace and quiet. I don't know what has come over me, but lately, that is all I seem to be doing, is trying to find peace in everything around me.
