Day 58: Hope Springs Eternal...

At last, another sunny day. When I tell Joni that the rainy season is nearly over, she just looks at me with that rather incredulous look and says: "You are a dreamer". She is right.

Hope springs eternal..

I found a tree with blossoms on it. I have no clue what it is... cherry? crab apple?

The tree blossoming out...

Angel is next to a piece of "Three Rivers Slate". Joni would like me to gather a couple large pieces every time I walk and carry them home in order to start a patio. The best place to harvest the slate is half ways down the canyon. It would be a real act of love to follow through with this project. The slate is heavy. The road steep.

Yet doing something like that might get me in better shape for hiking season this summer...I wonder how long it would take me to drag up enough rock for a patio?

Angel and I ended up doing the three mile loop. Things are turning green. Flowers should become evident in the next couple of weeks. Hurrah!

Carry the rock would definitely classify as "cross-training." What a great honey-do list.

Yes, spring is in the air around this part of the country to...although we are still a ways out from green grass and blossoms.

I don't think I want carrying slate around one and a half miles, up hill, on my honey do list...

Happy training!
