Catching Up on Numerous Things

Posted by: Lynne

The snow drifts are melting day by day and the aspens are starting to leaf out. The grasses still aren't coming in a lot yet so the space around the cabin looks like a blast zone with all the tramped down dead grass from last year, like it always does when the snow has not been gone long.

We've been busy busy busy. Saturday found us taking up the whole day in Ft. Collins running errands. We bought a new TV at Best Buy since our cabin TV was an old tube-style with a built-in DVD/VHS and a teeny screen. Of course, our satellite dish is not equipped for HD (which we knew) so we are watching standard definition on an HD TV at this point. The Dish guy was supposed to come yesterday but he had a family emergency or something and now isn't coming until June 4th. Bummer. At least it will be time to watch the new season of UnReal on June 6th.

Sunday found us driving to Kiowa, Colorado (south and east of Denver) to pick up the newest member of our family, and one of the reasons I haven't had time to blog. Meet Destin, our new Berner boy! (Registered name: Summit's We Were Made for This v Joyful)
