First visitor of the week – the Amazon truck, bringing birthday tidings. It was thoughtful of Jenny to stretch Wilson’s birthday out with a present arriving this week – plus he gets to pick. How to pick between Dawkins and Vonnegut? Maybe he’ll just read them both before Jenny returns from Korea.
Second visitors – Karen and Christina are here from the East to attend a med student conference. It is fun to have young people around who are willing to laugh at our jokes. And it is fun to have knitters in abundance. Isn’t Karen’s Eunny Jang Deep V Argyle Vest the bomb? I love the stitch design. And it looks so cute on Karen. I don’t think my personal sense of style handles the new deep necks, but I think they look great on others. (This goes along with my wearing greys and olives and browns so much, I think.) (Remember the wood thrush is kind of drab in appearance, too, but it is one of the most talented singers in the woods. Not that my talent is singing – just saying don’t worry about me having a self esteem issue.) (Oh, yah, you probably weren’t really worried about that.)
Pearl visited the back yard for quite awhile and then stretched out in the sun on the back deck. He looked very happy. Then he came in an puked up the grass he’d eaten. So cute.
Fourth visitor, and one I had about given up on – the croci are up! You can tell from the picture how long and hard the snow pressed down on the yard, but there is no turning back now. If you don’t have your ice fishing house off the lake by now, I am afraid you have likely invested in lake bottom property.
Don’t worry, I don’t think ice fishing is big in Colorado.
