With great sadness

        Marilyn Ewing was born February 4, 1951 to Warren and Viola Amen.  She grew up in Pierce, Colorado, where she graduated from Highland High School in 1969. Marilyn graduated from the University Of Northern Colorado (CSC) in Greeley with a teaching degree in Elementary Education. She met her husband Wallace while attending college.  She taught in Granby, Colorado for several years then moved to Wiggins after marrying Wallace Ewing.  Marilyn and Wallace made their home in Wiggins where Marilyn taught at the elementary school for 37 years.  In 1981 they had their daughter, Sarah Joy, who was the love of their lives.  

          Marilyn was first and foremost a child of God.  Her actions glorified Him. She was a woman of many talents and activities which included playing piano for the children's activities and teaching Bible School at the Wiggins Community Church.  She also played bells in the Bell Choir for the church services and special events.  Marilyn gave English High Tea for family and friends and was a master gardener.  She was quite a seamstress making all the Halloween costumes for herself and later her family. Marilyn also made her daughter's wedding gown and jewelry for the bride and bridemaids.  She was an excellent crafter, making her own greeting cards and made unique and beautiful gifts for her family and friends.  She designed and contributed to her own blog making friends all over the world.

       Marilyn was a wonderful daughter to her parents, a dedicated sister to Keith, a beloved sister-in-law to JoAnn Nelson and Virginia Quill, a loving wife and mother to Wallace and Sarah, a caring friend to many, and an encouraging teacher to hundreds of students.  Marilyn left this world on May 19, 2014 to join Wallace and have him help her complete her unfinished bucket list.  She was a true treasure!

          Marilyn is survived by daughter Sarah Buluran, son-in-law Alexander and her grandson Maxx. Along with mother Viola Amen and brother Keith Amen and wife Peggy.  Marilyn was proceeded in death by her father Warren, her husband Wallace and her mother-in-law Alice Ewing.

Memorial services will be held Friday May 30, 2014 at the Wiggins Community Church at 11:00am.

Puffy White

While driving home on Saturday I thought to myself that the puffy clouds and deep blue sky looked so much like a spring or summer sky!
Colorado is known for our beautiful blue skies
The ground/pasture is still brown so spring isn't here yet. But I can wish.

Brain Freeze

It took me forever to save this picture and get it here! Then I discovered I had posted it on a practice blog that is for my eyes only. Now it's in the right place, FINALLY!  Not posting for such a long time made my brain freeze...sort of like the weather around here.

I saw it on FB this morning and it is the only thing I've seen that made me think of SPRING, which is not here yet. There is a forecast for warmer weather here this week, but those temperatures never seem to find their way here.  It's always hotter in the summer and colder here in the winter  than in Denver.  Yesterday we had a high of 14 degrees and I was freezing cold all day. Today 50's?? I seriously doubt it. 

It will be a long time before I see my daffodils blooming as in this picture from 2010! But I'm ready.
