Twenty plus years ago when Michael and I married there were no grizzly bears in our neck of the woods. We had black bears and while I have a healthy respect for them, I wasn’t afraid the bears would jump out and get me. Over the years I’ve had three close run-ins with black bears—as close as 20 feet from me and those bears were just as afraid of me as I was them—running in the opposite direction!
Well, now it seems we have grizzly bears—a grizzly was hit and killed by a car on the Boulder Road, our neighbors have seen grizzly bears near our home making us just a touch nervous! Tonight walking Emmi we were coming back up our creek side trail and stumbled upon a HUGE pile of bear scat!! There is no way to tell just by looking at the poop if it’s grizzly or black bear but my skin sure did crawl!! Emmi and I made fast tracks back to the house singing all the way—and my singing should scare just about anything away!
Packing, packing and packing some more. Michael stored away all the equipment today and I cleaned the flower beds—a chore I’m always glad to have finished in the fall so when spring comes the beds can just come to life. I also wrapped and boxed Christmas presents—we will take them over to Lonn’s before we leave—organized aren’t I!!!
I finished the binding on this sweet little lap quilt today—I love the colors!
Life is good!
