Week 13

This week we received 6.5 inches of rain at the main house and the cabin got a bit over 9 inches.  The cabin is further back in the drainage and it rains more back there.  Always.
It was a peaceful week.  Mark spent time in the shop cleaning and organizing.  I spent time reading.  I realize my computer and I have a lot in common.  Somedays we are very quick and active and other days slower than molasses.  This week was slower than molasses.
Except for our daily 3 mile training hikes for our upcoming hike in the desert.  Today we did a 9 mile loop and we are both surprised at how tired and sore we are.  We've got to really pick up our training as some days in the desert we will need to hike 20 miles in one day due to the lack of water.
Water here is bubbling up right in the middle of the road,
or out of the hillside.
Seasonal ponds are full,
and itty bitty cricks are flowing well.

Water is life.

  1. Everything looks so lush and green! That sounds like an awful lot of water to us, but water is good as long as you can keep it under control. Maybe you will have a really good hay season. Looking forward to snow - again - tomorrow.

  2. The 9 inches at the cabin is equal to our yearly average. I guess that's why it's green there and brown here ;)

  3. It's all so... green! BAWL! SOB! WEEP!
