I know, I know

I know this was supposed to have started like about 100 days ago. I'm starting now. Several friends blogged about writing a haiku each day for 100 consecutive days. This activity was to end at the end of the year. I'm starting now.

It's a Small World

It IS a small world. We went for pizza tonight and met a couple currently living in Colorado Springs (Zelma's home town) having just moved there from Madison, WI (just down-the-road-sort-of from where we formerly lived).

We had a nice chat about the places we shared, and they left to continue on with their journey. Safe travels.

Prairie Blizzard

Well, now, that was some blizzard. Three days of closed interstates, howling winds and way over a foot of snow. We just finished digging out. The yard is a sea of white drifts, swirls and awesome beauty...wish I had snow shoes.

But there was an upside to this: we could knit and garden plan and artisan plan for three days also.

Christmas at the Capitol

Had to go near the capitol last week and was able to take in the christmas trees on display. Most impressive. Three floors, 90 trees decorated by various organizations. And the Piece de resistance: a wonderful three-story tree.

It's been a while...

Oh, it's been too long I know. Still settling into the new digs and adjusting to the new location and having a fun, fun time making new friends.

Watch for more posts as I catch up on the blogging business...have lists of ideas.
