These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

The weekend's here, the weekend's here!!

Dang, this has been a loooong week, and today was the longest of all! There is nothing particularly wrong, but just very busy and chaotic. And I'm super glad it is over. I'm delighted the weekend is here. I hope I can sleep in in the morning. Not a big chance of that, but I'm hoping, nonetheless. Maybe I should hang a heavy blanket over the window?

My hand is healing well. I now have the bandages off the ring finger and the thumb. They look pretty awful, but they are healing nicely. I'll be scarred, for sure, but that's life. The burn on the middle finger is healing much more slowly. It is healing well, but taking it's own sweet time! One thing I know .... I've learned a lesson. I'm cooking with a long handled fork now, not that short one. I haven't fried anything, but I'm making sure I'm adjusted to using the safer tool before I have another boo-boo. It has been two weeks tomorrow, and I'm guessing it will be another week before the last bandage comes off.

I was surprised to see snow on ol' Bessie this morning.  There wasn't much, but it was there. The wasn't even a hint of moisture in the forecast. I'm ready for spring. We need moisture, but I want spring and rain, thank you very much. Sadly we won't likely have significant rain until the monsoons in late summer, but as I said the the first paragraph, I can hope. Anything to avoid unnecessary dryness in the forest. We've had major fires each of the past two years, both very close to Ruidoso, and we certainly don't need any more for a long time.

Over the next ten days, temperatures are going to be warming. Today's high was 40°. Not bad, but the 55° for next Sunday looks very nice! So maybe spring is near.

Oookay, I'm gonna get started on my weekend. Y'all have a good'un, OK?
