Spring continues her slow motion steamroll over us, like so many dank clouds silently stomping across a moody sky.
Rains have been shockingly prevalent and oh so welcome. A creek that sometimes only runs every 3rd or 4th season unceremoniously ejected us off of it a few days ago with too much water. Going to have to get used to that this year.
Because spring is also my busy time in the shop, and because so many friends stream through the valley en route out of the mountains and into the desert, a kitten working back to back 14 hour days can start to feel a bit caged and -- if she isn't careful -- begin to sense that she's missing out.
Loading up the van with a bike, a boat, and some food and heading to less traveled pastures for a few days is a quick way to cure that. Or maybe not cure, but at least tamp it down for a spell.
