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!

Just a reminder to my readers; this time of year, I am not online as much so I don't get a chance to visit other blogs. There may be times when I'm not able to blog for a day or two (HEAVEN FORBID!!). I DO try to answer all emails so with that in mind, if you are one of the people who send me jokes, if they are jokes or photos that might be over lets say 800KB, PLEASE DON'T SEND THEM. I really don't have the time for them (even with satellite) and once they start downloading, there isn't much I can do to stop them. I appreciate your help in this area.

Also, someone wanted to know why I didn't continue with the ZEN THOUGHT FOR THE DAY thing...I did. It is at the top of the right hand side of this page.



  1. Your bloggy friends will still be here waiting! :-)

  2. Shellmo, this is day # 2 without long underwear!!! Just took a break which included a quick shower and a peach wine cooler!

    Good to know ya will be around!

  3. I am thinking of you and all of your hard work everyday.
    I have been raking and gardening and am so sore I can hardly move.
    I don't know how you do what you do every spring and fall...kudos to you!!

    Its okay not to blog as often...I will await the ones you do have a chance to do. It is good for us all to remember that we have lives outside of blogging. ha
