One week and counting

Someone has been nibbling on rose hips on this stump.

Our time at the cabin is flying by. I shouldn’t be surprised by that, it always does. Days go by and we can’t remember what we did the day before. I have so many plans of sitting and reading or knitting, but somehow I don’t end up doing very much of either of them. I did cast on Rick’s new slippers but that’s as far as I got. Wrapping my head around the knitting pattern seems like too much thinking.

We go to bed early but still get up at the same time we always do. Partly due to the dogs and cats that won’t let us sleep any later than 6:30 a.m. Sam starts knocking things off the kitchen counters and mewing. The dogs start stirring and we end up with all three on the smaller-than-NJ-queen sized bed.

We walk. A lot. I think we are all finally acclimated to the higher altitude. Here is Bella demonstrating her mountain dog/rock climbing skills

The aspens have changed quite a bit since our arrival. They are late this year. By the time we leave they should be pretty much peak.

The weather has been sunny and fairly warm (low 70’s during the day). The first couple of days we were here it was much cooler with a little bit of rain. The cooler weather allowed us wood fires in the range, although as I type this morning it is 38 degrees F and I have a fire going to warm the cabin up.

It’s hard to believe that next week we’ll be on the road home. Time just goes too quickly when you’re doing not much of anything.

Our dinner last night: Swiss Onion Tart ... yum.

Sure glad I can enjoy Sand Creek thru you!  Photos are wonderful.  Glad the aspen trees are putting on their show.  Oh your onion tart looks yummy…think I will have to give it a try.  So far, I have loved all your recipes that I have tried ...whoo hoo!

Gorgeous blue sky behind those aspens.  What is the layer in the rock to the left of the big tree?  Looks like Utah!

Debra, glad you enjoying! Yes, do try this recipe. It’s delish!

Carolyn, yep lots of blue sky here. I don’t know what you mean by what is the layer in the rock? Are you seeing things again? wink

Not sure why the captcha is showing back up again below. Hmm….some things are not working properly up here!

Absolutely brilliant photos - not sure I could handle the pack rat problem.  I could manage the Swiss onion tart tho - it looks delicious.

Joyce, thanks, glad you enjoyed the photos. I have plenty more where those came from! The pack rat is problem no one wants to face!
