Happy Veterans Day!

I love a day off. Last night my sister-in-law, in hearing that I have today off, remarked that I "picked an easy gig" -- I'm not so sure about that, but I am happy to have the day off! After dealing with 31 rambunctious five, six, and seven year olds all week I think a day off now and then is necessary to my sanity.

Saturday Chris and I headed up Mt. Bierstadt to put 14er number 10 in the bag (with an attempt at #11 which didn't work out)... and our first "wintery" ascent. Who knew a 14er in the middle of November could be so nice? Anyway, I tend to steal the fun trip reports, so I'll leave this one for hubby's blog. We had a great time though!

Here are a few pictures:

Today my dad came up and tore out the last of our bushes that we started tearing out back in July or August. The guy can still swing an axe like it's nobody's business at almost 67 years old. Thanks for your help dad! Turbo and I enjoyed supervising! I also got some homework done (one day this masters will be worth it, but I sure hate doing homework again) and spent a lot of money on groceries.

Life is good.

Great pics, and I'm glad that the last of your bushes are out. Any plans of landscaping around that in the spring?
