I don’t really have a good answer. The best I can come up with is that I’ve been tired…. I know, that’s a terrible response. But I’m back, and have a bunch of pictures of the stuff that’s been keeping me busy (and tired) for the last 2 months.
I helped this wonderful couple, and two of my favorite friends, celebrate their 10th anniversary:
Then I watched the Sierra Nevada mountains go from this….
I also had a myriad of visitors! Some stayed with me in the pink trailer, and some did not. Some were invited, and others, not so much….
With all the extra days off during the holidays, I had a few sleepovers at friends’ houses. Conveniently also during some very cold days and nights.
I nearly froze to death, on a couple of occasions. On nights like this, living in an un-insulated trailer feels like barely a step up from being homeless. But I’ve managed to figure out a system with my space heaters that prevents my pipes and I from freezing solid in the night (even when the temps hit 0F/-18C), without blowing a fuse, and while keeping my electric bill under $200.
Then my friends let me babysit. Although “let me” doesn’t sound quite right. I wasn’t exactly begging to do it…. But remember the 10th anniversary friends up above? As part of my anniversary gift to them, I bought them a movie date and offered to babysit. It was my first babysitting in a couple of decades. No one died, no one pooped, and we only had one crier, so all in all, a pretty successful evening….
I have also been spending a little time at a great new local coffee shop, Coffee Bar….
…where Marty McFly’s De Lorean was recently parked:
And finally, I had a fantastic long weekend in Vegas (one of my favorite cities to visit), catching up with friends and family:
So that’s a little of what I’ve been up to, while being the world’s most neglectful blogger. I promise to be better. I promise. 🙂
