Mountain Climbing

Well, my granddaughter decided she was big enough to climb out of her pack-n-play and so that’s what she did. Scared me half to death when I found her starting up the stairs. Somedays you don’t have to do aerobics to get the old heart pumping. The kids also had to take her to an allergist. Turns out travel is enough stress to kick off a little person’s eczema. It’s always something with kids.

We’re getting rain, which is a blessing. Not only does it save on the water bill, but it clears the air and smells good outside. I love how the trees and plants look fresh and clean. After the dry winter we had, I’m glad to see some moisture fall that isn’t hail. There was wind damage at the farm, but after watching the news showing all of the tornadoes east of here, and the hail in Denver, I’m grateful it wasn’t worse.

There are a lot of frustrating details in buying a house now-a-days. Proof of this and that and the kitchen sink. I guess they want to know if the buyer is laundering money, funding terrorists, or ??? I don’t know, but it gets one’s ire up.

Great progress on the book. I’m currently working on a map. This is when my distinct lack of artistic skill shows up like a two by four to my head. I shall have to hire an artist but I still have to get the basics down for them to work with, just one more step going up the mountain.
