I keep thinking I’ll get back to doing this on a regular basis. Every 4 months is a regular basis, right? Sigh…
As always, lots of Arts & Sciences on Wednesdays. Fighter practice on Sunday’s as weather permits. I’ve been doing a lot of sewing, and general craft stuff. 🙂 Refinished a lovely table and made a wood working space in the Studio. School board meetings, lots of school educational things and working on the house. Oh, and many meetings of the Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Fest Board. We have moved the date up by a week. Now for the highlights…
January: Doctor visits for my mom as her hip healed and general running around.
Vinking Vinter Vunderland was a hoot! Plus, I got my apprentice belt from Duchess Selene of the Sky. 🙂 (happy Dance!)
We drove to Denver, had lunch with Morgan and spent the rest of the afternoon at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Ahhh.
CASB Board of Director’s conference up in Florissant. Lovely time.
Started to work on replacing the roof.
February: Discovered how to bring winter back to Colorado. Try to replace your roof. We have had a hell of a time. No contractor wanting to touch the 35 Ft mast on the roof. Or, we’ve had people say they’d come help and never show. Finally, Dan and our friend Ben have been doing the work with the help of 2-3 other people. Almost never the same bunch at the same time. Oh, and in between 65mph winds, snow and other fun.
Our school district dealt with a ‘creditable threat’ to our students by closing down for two school days until the person turned themselves in. Scary because just a few days later the school shooting in Florida took place.
Dealt with sewer issues. Gahhhh! Our sewers in town need a real good clean out. It took over a week to stop sewage flowing into the house. 😦
It snowed enough for Saydee to play in it. She was Sooooo excited.
I went to the CASB Winter Legislative conference. Afterwards, I took a trip up to Cheyenne to see my son Erin and his family. 🙂
March: More roofing! Dan and Ben are exhausted most days. Lots of trips to the dump with asphalt and cedar shingles.
We had friends from Woodland Park visit. Lots of A&S discussions, and just good conversation. Ahhhh.
A CASB Board of Director’s meeting and a Tri-Board meeting between Aguilar, Huerfano RE-1 and La Veta. 🙂 It was a good meeting!
Mom had pneumonia again, but it was caught early on this time. Phew!
Lots of house improvements. Curtain rods and Curtains!!!! I only have one window lacking the curtains needed. 🙂 I reorganized the Studio as well. 🙂
Weather. Oh has it been weird. 70 one day, 35 the next with 2 inches of snow. The roof is almost done.
O the 22nd, Earth Day, Ben, Dan and I did the Lathrop park cleanup. It’s in honor of my dad who was a volunteer out there who died on Earth Day.
Yesterday, the 28th was Denfender and the Baronial Birthday for Aarquelle. It was a lovely event and nice weather. Ben fought, Dan fixed boo-boos and I just relaxed. 🙂
