Seasons changing. Wonderful wonderous stuff. John called me at work today to say that a river had developed in our backyard. Rapids of flooding whisking past our gully, pushing leaves and acorns through a narrow passage and then on to neighbor John's wide perfect grass lawn as it became a spongy ocean. Then it made a right turn and made for Colfax Rd., and gravity confused us with its unexpected, flawless seeking of Downward. We thought it should steer towards the dropoff we saw ahead - but the water knew better.
We hosted all the Yoders last night for a big Easter dinner. We fit everyone that came! Amazing numbers of Yoders pouring into every crevice in our home. :)
I've posted many pictures of recent. In no particular order: Judith and I visited The Gates in New York City, a lovely day trip by bus. John and I had a yard sale and made $179 dollars! We sold both sets of chairs. I also sold some things on craigslist at the same time, which was delightful and exciting. I uploaded Christmas Pictures of Thelma's party and Christmas Eve at Jim Hutton's. I saw inauguration fireworks from my building. Sal Chang visited from Cali when traveling the country waiting for her LAC (Licenced Acupuncturist) results from her massive exam (she passed!).
I've been using igal as you can see, and adore this program so much. It is amazing. I used it to convert many folders of pictures into user-friendly formats that you don't have to suffer through every image to get to the good ones. I've converted all of the house pictures and even, after many long years, a "bestof" collection from Burma (Myanmar). I hope to get the rest of the pictures from Rangoon up in this decade. :)
Right now I've got six plants that I need to put in the ground - a Bottlebrush Buckeye, a Redbud, a Winterthur Viburnum Nudum, a little Heart-leaf Alexander, an Indian grass, and a sheep laurel. Native plant sale at the Arboretum was yummy. I'll try to update this post to link them.
Now, off to work. Spring is wonderful.Posted by argus at March 29, 2005 02:32 AM
