I'm back in Colorado this week and next. Steve has been here much of the time these last 5 months, to finish business and the sale of our property. As you can imagine, we have missed each other quite a lot. A long flight last Wednesday, brought me in late at night, and now I am here on this Monday morning with a fire in the wood stove burning, to make our house warm and cozy on an overcast, rainy day. I am glad I thought to leave some of my winter Colorado clothes here, because I have certainly needed them. Spring is still on its way here, with the trees only partially leaved out and the temperatures still very cool. The mountains are as beautiful as ever; the sweet memories that we have had throughout the years as we have raised our children have been running through my mind for the last several days. The Meadow Larks have been waking me each morning with their lovely voices; a sound that I always associate with Spring in Colorado; one of the most beautiful sounds on earth, to my way of thinking.
Its Tuesday now as I finish this post. We had rain all night last night and through the morning, bringing flash flood warnings, and a full creek which has now turned into a river. I didn't bring my camera with me on this trip, but will try to get some pictures with my phone and perhaps do a post or two… but if you don't hear from me for a little while, you'll know I didn't get around to getting that post done.
This is a pretty picture that I always love. It is our back yard, looking over the creek.
I love this little dog. Her name is Ginger Peach; she belongs to Steve's Mom, Jo. Ginger Peach came to Jo via my daughter Marie, and she is such a treasure.
I took this picture on Saturday.
And this is what I woke up to today. Same view from a little bit farther back.
Today. Yes, that's a lot of water.
I think its time to make a nice pot of soup and put it on the Wood Stove to simmer.
Hope you all have a wonderful week.
