Catching Up...

Spring has sprung and the days are busy!

I've taken a full time job with a cement company in Rio Rancho, so I'm doing my web work early mornings, nights and weekends. So far so good.

We've started vegetables, done a little landscaping, added junipers to the back yard and flowers and bulbs to the front. Sam helped dig holes and tuck in plants and seedlings. We had a lot of fun working in the front garden together.

John and I have taken a couple of short trips. It's still chilly yet to go too far into the mountains. The picture to the left is Cabezon Peak - a volcanic upburst. We have many volcanic structures like this in the area. They always make me think of Devil's Tower, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and mashed potatoes - thank you Speilberg.

We hit the bike store yesterday. I'm seriously looking at a new Kawasaki Ninja 500R. I miss my bike desperately, and driving even more so. I fell in love with the latest model immediately - it's a gorgeous Yellow!

(Warning... "Chick Think" Ahead!) Sadly, it clashes with my current helmet and summer jacket (both are light yellow, not this rich shade, and don't even match each other). It's time for a new helmet anyway, but a new jacket, perhaps maroon to match the detail, would be nice too. I'll need to match the maroon to nail polish as well... I'm totally kidding with that one folks!

My biggest hope is that Sam is finally tall enough to reach the foot pegs. I'd LOVE to be able to take him with me on rides this summer. It may be another year yet, but I'm looking forward to that time.
