Never while anything is left of me shall this camp be forgotten. It has fairly grown into me, not merely as memory pictures, but as part and parcel of mind and body alike. -John Muir

We're still here!

promise. We haven't fallen off the face of the earth, been eaten by a bear or froze to death. We can tell you that the new jeep that we bought broke down and had to have the transmission repaired. We can tell you that we have both been sick, S is currently in the worst of it...hopefully. We can tell you we are still working at the same places...though S is now in floral, M is still chugging along with the crew at the university, learning new skills all the time. We can tell you that we are unsure of the permanence of all of these things...hopefully the new jeep will continue to run smoothly now that it has been repaired...that we will overcome our illnesses now that the seasons are changing...and that we will continue working. We are unsure of everything except that we made it through our first winter here and the weather just keeps getting better!! {exclamation point}We are very excited about this. The kitties are also very excited about the chance of open windows and the sound of chirpping birds. Winter makes them lazy and restless.

M started pulling the hay out from under the camper and spreading it onto our mudd yard. With the seed that he spread in the fall and the hay hopefully we'll have some grass soon. We have had some chilly, cloudy days lately but the nice ones outweigh those more and more each week.

We took 2 hikes around the property last week. Thank goodness for Spring. We are ready to start enjoying the magic of this place.

Hope everyone is well and you did not get eaten by a bear or freeze to death. ;)
