Business Trip

The sun was just beginning to take a rosy interest in the day as I descended the bare U.V. steps Saturday. I've glimpsed the herd of muledeer earlier than ever, grazing in a hollow behind the plant, and the damned marmots- the low, slinky, orange-bellied rodents Jeff calls rock chucks- are coming out of hibernation already. They tunnel under concrete and cause structures to collapse, and they view the U.V. steps as their personal toilet. Last year we tried to gas them. This year we're shooting.

I'll be out of town now until Thursday afternoon, and I know how much is going to change in just four short days- more green fuzzy grass, more buds, more birds. Bud and I are attending Wyoming Rural Water's annual spring conference in Casper, which I've been looking forward to. Greeley was such a quick trip that it didn't really feel like getting out of town, and I was so wrapped up in family that I forgot to take in the scenery.

So I won't have time to work on the dozen or so posts I've started, and I need to step up the studying or I'm going to go down in flames in Rock Springs on May 24th, the day my Level III Certification exam is tentatively scheduled. Just keep reminding me: convert cubic feet to gallons. (Multiply by 7.48.) I really do mean to blog more. Honest. Life just keeps getting in the way.

isn't it ironic that you love to blog about life, but life is what is keeping you from blogging...

Indeed, Miss Profound.

How's the gardening coming? (It's snowing in Casper. Yay.)
