Great summer so far - temps haven't brutalized us yet and there's enough rain to notice. We've moved into a sort of semi-retirement stage of life and I'm loving it. We put in another plum tree plus some rabbit bushes along with the veg garden. Lots of time spent with Honey discovering present time in a new way, all seasons of "Justified" knocked out and now working on "Breaking Bad". Swimming in our semi-private condo pool, painting some and new curtains for the east bedroom. Yes, working, too, but mainly just enjoying life.

Mara des Bois strawberries in the garden - the first of this crop. Dealing with the grass growing so fast with all the rain. Pollen tickling my nose. I love summer in Boulder!

I'm delighted to have found that the password still works and Google generously save my blog for me for these years. Summer has arrived in town after a wet Spring. The water from last year's flood is still seeping into the cracks and crevices; the air is abnormally humid; the perennially dry ditch overflows furiously with a good rain. Today I'm finishing Under Magnolia and trying my hand at homemade boiled peanuts. All the signs point toward a very good summer ahead.
