Untitled 173

Pastel on UArt, approx. 5" x 6".
Things still suck here (but I am taking the good advice many of you had, though I may not write about the specifics here), but this guy makes me smile: here's Moji at Coot Lake a couple of weeks ago. I can't believe this photo came out--I had a very enthusiastic wet dog barreling at me full-speed, and a was doing a one-handed photo with an iPhone that doesn't have a very good camera to begin with.

Moji loves fetching in water more than anything in the world.

We have had the most beautiful weather imaginable for almost two months. 

Still in shock over waking up to this today. Big branches are breaking all over town (including on our deck) due to the sudden heavy snow (first snow of the season, and it is a huge one!). It went from 80 degrees a couple of days ago and will be only 15 F tonight. Boulder never does anything halfway.

And there really is only one good way to deal with it:

When I moved to Boulder in August many years ago, it snowed on Labor Day, and I thought, "Oh, no, what have I done moving here!" But then the fall WAS gorgeous and I fell in love with aspens and cottonwoods and the mountains-- and eventually the snow. I think it was a couple of years after that that a late spring blizzard took down many, many leaf-laden branches. It was so sad to see. Capricious, eh?

If only they made radiators and baseboard heaters big enough for us people! Stay warm!
