Well here I am. When I clicked on “Write” the same old classic editor appeared, so it seems the forced changeover to block editor is on hold. Or maybe it was all just a scare. Or perhaps I’m just being given a little grace period. Who knows?
Yes, this is my 300th blog post, just shy of 2-1/2 years of blogging. That’s a lot of words pumped out, enough for one or two books! But there’s nothing comprehensive to put into a book at this point.
Thought I’d just share a few miscellaneous photos with you today. A Christmas present for The Putterer was a dog-sled ride. We both went, though I was still experiencing some pain in my surgical knee. If the path hadn’t been so bumpy, riding on the sled would have been fine. I actually found it more pleasant to stand on the sled rail in back with our driver.
We went out for a hike in the mountains a couple weeks ago. It was the first trail test for my new knee and all was well. Sterling, of course, was also happy to be back out in the National Forest again. I’m looking forward to doing many more hikes this summer.
Last fall, I planted a new flower garden on the south side of the house, populating it with poppies and delphiniums. This is the first of the poppy blossoms. Only one poppy plant and one delphinium died over the winter, so I’ll call this a success.
On Saturday, the Durango Bird Club held its spring bird count, but without car-pooling and with observing social distancing. One couple joined me to walk the length of my rural road (about 4 miles round trip). Near the south end of the road, I nearly stepped on this beautiful 6 foot bull snake.
I’ll be back with more 52 Ancestors posts later this week. My new computer is scheduled for delivery on Thursday, so the latter part of the week should be rather interesting!
