A little bit about this blog and me

We'll see where this blog takes us together!!
Let me say that I am not a super savvy computer wizard, BUT I am learning new things about it everyday! I "google" something almost everyday! I LOVE my family, not just my immediate, but my very large extended family as well! I enjoy traveling with my husband Stacey and our BiBlue Sheltie Seamus (pronounced Shaym Us) with The Abi-one! The Abi-one is our Outback 29RLS camper or with Runabout Rhonda our 1986 pickup slide-in truck camper. We don't get to go alot, but we go when we can, and are grateful for any time we get. I named this blog "This Month with Ember" , but I will try to post more frequently. I have alot going on in my life. Besides Stacey and Seamus, I have a grown son, Frank and 3 business', Ember's Garden, LLC, Mum Fosters Kitchen, and Photo North. I also substitute teach in 5 towns, and am a member of the Champlain Islands Farmers Market which is where I sell Mum Fosters Kitchen products, and my Photo North photographs. I am the 12 of 13 children, so good luck learning all my siblings, nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews names as well!

Well I missed the blog for the ENTIRE month of May, but I was pretty busy with afterschool programs (4 days a week) and flooding! Lake Champlain has been above flood stage for over a month and remains there still and for the foreseeable future as well! Every time the wind blows the roads are flooded and more shoreline is eroded. The wind, wave and erosion problem are what is keeping us busy. We have sandbagged more than I care to remember, and as of Friday the sandbags have become HUGE! On one property we used 3' square bags to save the remaining shoreline, and home! There are several (15 or so) videos that I posted on you tube that you can view by following this LINK . Become a follower if you'd like of either this blog, or my You Tube channel. So far this seems to be a pretty volatile summer for weather videos!!
What have you all been doing?


  1. Hi Ember,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments about the 1000 islands. We had such a good time.
    I can see you are moving along nicely with your blog, love the dog paws.
    Will see you around the neighborhood.

  2. Thanks Michele! I hope to get some time to work on it again soon. I/we LOVE the 1000 islands and especially Boldt castle!
    Have a great day!
