Only a month to go
Sine die is just around the corner. Committee action ended for me this week and I just have to work my bills through the floor process. It will mean some late nights and weekends, but the worst is over for now. I want it to be officially over because I need to get some hiking in. My boots are ready to be put on and my backpack is ready to be stuffed full of the ten essentials. I even plan to update my first aid kit since I am fairly sure I am out of ibuprofen and bandaids. The picture here is of an avalanche lily from last year. They are rapidly becoming my favorite flower - just for their ability to lay dormant under several feet of snow and then to burst open when the spring thaw hits. Fragile and beautiful - can't wait to see them. Mount Rainier, melt down soon so I can come and visit.
