About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandsons. My hobbies include creating art with fabric (quilting and sewing) and paper (cardmaking), reading, writing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad), travel and volunteering. I owned a secretarial and desktop publishing business years ago and was a professional proofreader. I closed my business in 1999 when my husband retired, but I continue to enjoy proofreading and editing for e-authors. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

Postage is unbelievably high these days, and it really hits home at Christmas when you think of sending a card to everyone you know. At $.50 per card, it gets very pricey, very quickly. I’ve received several Christmas letters in … Continue reading

The highs and lows of life keep my mind moving through memories of the past. My friend Mage posts photos of all sorts of antique Christmas balls jumbled in a box. It reminds me of Christmas trees that we had when … Continue reading

This is the Christmas tree we used at our Arizona home. Our place is small and we really didn’t have room for anything much bigger than this. Now that I look at it, I wonder where it is as we’ve … Continue reading
