Some Photos And A Surprise

It's been really quiet here. Not a lot going on. The clouds come and go. The deer come and go. We've been getting the house ready, just in case we really do decide to sell it some time in the near future. Roger's been painting the baseboards in the living room and dining area. It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint on the baseboards can do to a room. Everything looks new and bright and cared for. The little details can make such a difference. We're expecting rain and snow over the next few days. We're pretty happy about that. Although, to be perfectly honest, I would be happy without the snow. But whatever moisture comes our way, we'll be grateful.

Here are a few of the sights from the past couple of weeks. The surprise is at the end.

    Congratulations to all parents, grandparents, and extended family...and welcome to the world, Ian!
    Great birthday, that day. Same as mine. In fact, I still have the little audio clip of Robin and Roger singing happy birthday to me.
    Ian is another reason to work hard to fix what we broke on this beautiful earth.
