The snow has melted enough that we can see patches of grass. It does feel like the worst of winter is behind us and that anything that happens now will be short lived. The downside is that it's early spring, which means it's messy and dirty and the dog needs towelling off after walks since she tends to get her belly dirty.

Also I heard a big crack and rumble yesterday, which ended up being the ice collapsing in our pool. But it seems to be nearly to the bottom which makes us wonder where the rest of the water has gone (we drained it to about 1/2 full in the fall. Best case scenario at this point is we need to replace the liner. I will take a moment to feel badly about that because more expensive than the liner is paying the truck to come fill the pool. Our water situation means we can't fill it out of our well...

Anyway we are waiting for the third thing to break (the first thing was the dh's glasses; his lenses are v. expensive).

However there is some goodness to the day. For one, I'm off to the accountant to pass off the tax stuff. I need to make a stop on the way home and then it's working on chapter 2 of the new book. And I'm at Petticoats and Pistols today, talking about how writers and ranchers actually have a lot in common. :-)

Have a good'un.


  1. Good luck with the pool!

  2. Fingers crossed that nothing else breaks!

  3. Hi Donna,

    So you believe things come in threes as well. hope nothing major breaks.
