Some pics of my new abode, on rocky terrain as yet devoid of landscaping. The final pic is of cows near the snow fence of my ex-wheatfarm, which stretches to the north of the house.

A Heap of Dirt

Posted by Edith Cook on Saturday, May 9, 2015, In : Personal 
Where my new home is going to be, a hole has been dug to pour cement for the foundation. Piles of dirt are heaped in next year'd garden and greenhouse. It's been raining nonstop since excavation; worse, A May snowstorm is due to arrive tomorrow which means, the foundation is a ways off. Oh, well.

About Me

Edith Cook Though I now live in Wyoming, I make frequent return trips to California with visits to travel club members along the way. At home I play classical guitar, enjoy gardening and cooking, and participate in group yoga. Getting together with family and friends is high on my agenda. I value people who write or make music and love it when my adult children and their offspring play their instruments, sing songs with me, or discuss what they read and write. Such gatherings help me cope with the losses in my life, which have been severe. Next year I hope to visit family in Germany.
