About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

(Do you know who sang that song??)

OK, well it isn't MAYBE I'm amazed...I AM amazed! I never knew such a thing existed although I don't know why it shouldn't exist.

What am I talking about?? DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING! Did you know about it and forget to tell me?? The latest thing I'VE been looking into is the websites to make your blog into a book and publish it, now I find out about this!! I KNOW I would not enjoy scrapbooking on my table top (even WITH a glass...heck, PITCHER of wine) but this might be fun!

And how did I find out about it? FROM A SNOWMOBILE TRAIL REPORT READER! Just this morning, this gal put a comment on the last Zen Thought for the Day. I saw that she had a blog so naturally I followed her to it. And it is pretty awesome! I have added it to my list, so I hope you will take time to check it out. It is SCRAPPY LISA. I haven't had a chance to really get into it yet but I intend to. Looks like it could be a lot of fun!


  1. I want to learn about it too. I'll have to look into it. Something else to feed into my 'hobby' of computers, pictures and writing about my life. Thanks Cathy.

  2. My downstate friend started a regular scrapbook a long time ago and hasn't gotten very far with it...her reason is because she is always on the computer. I thought of her first thing when I found out about this! Let me know what you think of it, if you decide to pursue it.
