About Me

The next-door neighbors, which is how we refer to our cabin guests, had an extra ticket to the Rooftop Rodeo, so invited me to go with them. It's called that because we are at high altitude. Other ro...
This morning it was baking hot in the sun. If we had humidity, it'd have been unbearable. But then it clouded over, and even though it didn't rain, it was relief from the heat and carried us through t...

Finally, the cabinets are going in at the new cabin. I forgot what they looked like, ordered them in September, they were delivered in October, sat in the boxes on the deck all winter.This is a wine ...
