Rainy Day in Colorado

Madi is singing Rain, Rain, Go Away today.  Yes, that means it rained here again today.  She is mad because it is more rainy here this year than last year.  This morning when we got up there was rainbow to the west.  It seems that about the same time every day it comes a really big rain shower.  The morning was a bit cloudy.  Definitely cool.  We have been keeping the wood burning stove busy in the mornings.  I love to sit and hear the crackling of the fire.  I love it here.  The weather to me is perfect.  Cool, not cold, and in the afternoon the sun falling in the west warms the cabin for the evening.  I have to stop adding wood about mid afternoon to the stove because if I continue it is too warm for the guys when they return from the mountain trails.  They are continuing to have a good time.  They fished yesterday at Heart (Hart?) Lake.  They promised to bring home dinner. But just as Tina and I expected....none.   Jerry says never fear he will provide.  But we all just laugh knowing that we may starve to death if we waited on him.  

The horses are acting a bit crazed.  Jerry's word of the week is Jughead.  At least it's not old Chinese Proverbs.  Last year he was full of them.  Tina continues to work on her quilt.  She is doing the edge and called it handwork.  Those of you who quilt know what I'm talking about.  Madi and her have taken time today to play Yatzee.  Madi worked on her math skills.  Hopefully she does well once school starts.  She has finished one book and started a second.  It is so nice and quite when we are all three reading and listening to the fire crackle.  We haven't done any hiking do to all the rain.  It seems to really come down at times.  The boys just made it back and my quite time today will come to an abrupt halt.  I will leave today with a cute picture of Jerry and his horse Dusty.  I can't help but look at this picture and not laugh. 


Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!
