This time of year the sandhills are serenading us and today we were able to get some photos of three cranes hanging out in our hayfield. If I read Bird Lady Judy’s blog correctly these are not the same type of cranes located on the refuge where she is working.
I spent a large portion of my time today packing. Jeane, Jill and I are leaving tomorrow morning before the crack of dawn heading to Bryce and Zion National Parks. Do you know how much room hiking boots take in a suitcase??? Boots had to go in the backpack. We are taking Jeane’s Prius for gas mileage, I may have to ride on the roof if the other ladies have as much stuff as I do!! I am so ready for this trip and time with girlfriends!
Sue from Big Dawg and Freeway commented yesterday she hoped I got the book she was sending before I left on the trip. Well, Sue, we live in the boonies! We are not part of the US postal service money problems. We save them money here in our neck of the woods. There are not enough people living in this community year round to justify six day a week mail delivery. We only get mail on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. So, no, I won’t get the book before I leave, shucks!
Michael spent the day hauling dirt again from one place on the East Boulder to another place on the East Boulder. And yes, Rene’, Michael likes to play in the dirt! Mike is leveling a portion of Geoff and Nancy’s yard using dirt from a place they lease a few miles down the road.
And Emmi played ball.
