    Spring has matured




    The paths are clear




    The drive has dried out




    The shop was 60°F without heat

    Even had to use the screen door today




    Oh, there’s still snow






    But more terra firma than the white stuff


    Clouds played havoc with the morning light




    But, eventually, our little mountain breathed in the rays





    T’was a good day

    ‘tiz
    I have yet to go to even its base
    But, will climb it one day
    It’s on my bucket list
    Along with Mt Scott to the west

    Thing is, in summer, the fish in the high lakes keep calling me

    It looks beautiful.

    It looks like Canada.
    In truth, I am a city type of girl, but, I am warming to the idea of a place away from the rat race.

    Hi Gary
    Spring looks like it’s springing in your area
    Clear paths are nice. No more shoveling.
    I could live like that but like where we are.
    Keep ‘a fire ...kid.

    The 15th of this month marked the completion of our fourth year here
    Guess we’re no longer sourdoughs

    Funny, the first season I couldn’t get over all the deer
    Dozens of them
    In our garden

    They usually had a buck with them
    And he’d face me
    A sorta challenge

    Once I raised my arms and charged, they’d back off
    Now I know they were just migrating

    Their winter grounds are in the lower Christmas Valley a hundred miles east
    They’ll be passing thru again soon

    Yeah, we’re rather seasoned here now

    The seasons here are quite distinct, defined
    I do like that

    Get tired of the heat, well, winter’s coming

    Get weary of the cold and the snow, spring does spring

    Like now

    The snow is all but gone
    Just little berg like islands here and there

    Seasons are now predictable to us

    But ever day is a bit different

    There is no redundancy

    It’s why I love it so

    Day is breaking




    coffee is extra good this morn

    Year five is upon us

    The surprises will be fewer as we've learned to plan for the unexpected
