It is a gorgeous Sunday here in the mountains. Sunshine, no sign of the horrible forest fire smoke we have had earlier in the month, and it will be warm again. I have been hauling hose today, some folks call me crazy. My hubby has asked me whether or not I would like a sprinkler system and I say no. What? I don't know, there is just something about watering that soothes my soul. It makes me get outside, I wander the beds and trim and putter and it just feels good.
Today is the start of my Denver Bronco season! I am stoked. I lived in Wheatridge, Co (a suburb of Denver) for 5 years. And once you have lived there, I don't know how you cannot be a Bronco fan. I count the two times we won the Super Bowl with John Elway, up there with the birth of my two daughters...LOL So today, I am making my special chili feed with fixins' and my youngest will be joining my hubby and I for the game today.
My oldest girl is on a long trip through the country for the business she works for, Aerie Back Country Medicine. She markets to all the university's and speaks about the services they offer. EMT training and training in the wilderness for people wanting to know how to take care of accidents out in the wild. So far she has journeyed down the coast of Oregon, thru California, across to Arizona, to New Mexico and to Texas, then to Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado. Along the way, she gets to play too and I love getting the texts and photos of all the places she has visited. I look forward to when she is back home again, but it does my heart good to know she is loving the time she is having on the road.
Well, off I go. Time to move the hoses and get that chili cooking. Always, Kit
