The fog just engulfed our hilltop. I’m listening to The Poozies, another incredible group of musicians introduced to me by our first friend here, Bob the landlord. If you love Irish and Scottish music, you will love them! I’m baking banana bread while I write this.
So what’s not to love about this lifestyle?
The past few days have been wonderful for me. At our writing group on Saturday I met a new member who made my day! She’s been a major player in the Aspen arts scene for the past forty years, but burned out on that and is ready for something completely different. She warned me about telling too many about this beautiful place, so keep this under wraps, OK?
I have also found an exercise class I like for “older women.” It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for, so I bought a membership at Two Peaks Fitness. After winter and my post-construction slump, I need to get moving NOW! I hike up the hill behind us a few times a week and explore my new neighborhood. At 7,000 feet hiking is quite different than our old neighborhood in Fort Collins. Slowly but surely….
I am finding so many friendly people lately, especially in La Veta, and I’m finally feeling some sense of belonging here. Such a nice feeling!

Glad to hear you are finding “your place” in the new digs…do people still use that word..digs.
It sounds just perfect to me! And I’m so glad you are willing to share it all with me. 🙂
The yoga studio has lovely people too. I always get the month’s membership while I’m there.
That looks seriously relaxing to me! You sound tremendously happy and that is so wonderful to read!
Thanks for the tip Ellen! Yes, I’m finally happy with this almost two year journey of MAJOR midlife change…success at last.
