Happy Day after Earth Day!

Last weekend we went hiking in a park called Nose Hill. It is an oasis of prairie in the midst of a sprawling city. It is also a huge park, so you can almost feel like you are out on the rolling prairie and not within city limits. Walkers, runners, dogs, hikers and mountain bikers all enjoy the park. As well as mule deer, coyotes and smaller critters. The sky was huge and wide open. Big Sky country applies to more than Montana. Gorgeous, if you let yourself feel the land and not get hung up on what surrounds it.

May everyone find an oasis if they need it.
Happy Earth Day everyone.

Hi Everyone, 

Happy Tuesday! My little girl is napping more. Yesss... actually, hot damn! For all you stay-at-home moms or dads, you know what I'm talking about! The cutie is amazing, as everyone's kid is but I'm stoked to get a bit more work time. 

So I thought I was writing about rafting and turns out the story actually wanted to be on horseback instead. Go figure. Works for me, though.

I'm also learning the joys of website development. Ok, so it is still in the preliminary stages, really preliminary stages, but that's cool. It's coming. I've worked on websites for work and for friends, but neat-O, now I'm working on my own. :o) Hmm, now to solicit the help of one of my friends... you know who you are, please help!

Now for a mundane weather update, it is snowing. I know it's April and all, but April showers bring May flowers. I guess Gaia wrote her own memo. Right on Sister!

So my 9 month old discovered the joy of potted plants. Soil, leaves, all inside! How cool, I know. I suppose the daughter of two archaeologists, what did we think she would do with them!

I've started working on my next book. The story keeps... darting in my mind. I need to sit down and focus for a bit. It's jumping to come out, though.

Here in the shadow of the Rockies, I'm trying to be patient waiting for spring. I love winter, but I am so ready for spring... and then summer. Yup, shorts, sandals, tank tops and warm breezes... aah. 

Happy Wednesday everyone.
