Post rain here in the Big Valley (an episode of which I actually watched this day), but we only got about two tenths or so here at the rancho, not a soaker by any means. I spent this day suffering from, I guess, some allergic reaction to something. All the usual subjects...Moff and Charlie visited this day, he to scope out our trees for one of his projects. Really, not a very exciting day. Sorry.

Long time, no write, eh? That's the way the cookie crumbles, folks. I really can't speculate (remember) why I stopped posting here but I DO know what brought me back: Phfrit. She stumbled upon this blog just this afternoon and commented on how fun it was to read. So I revisited here for the first time in ages...and it WAS fun! So here I go again. Today we had rain for the first time in 52 days, which is a riiiiiiiiiiiiiily long spell, especially in winter. Not big rain...no. Riiiiiiiiiiiiily small rain, but moisture nonetheless. As we licked our chocolate Jolly Kones at Whitey's in West Sac, everybody was excited to see the rain.

Spring has more than sprung here in the Big Valley. This was a warm, storm-comin'-on day, and we worked worked worked. First up to Mack Road for Phfrit's first therapy session for her wrist. The therapist's name is Baron Von Something-or-other. Quite a moniker. Cool guy. All is going well. Then over to the apartment to gather some things and fill some boxes and take down stuff from walls, etc. Then back home to do things with all the things we brought here, etc. You know how moving goes. All in all, having

Monday morning I dutifully sat down to recount the adventures of the weekend, and I did, but I somehow clicked the wrong thing in the new Blogger layout and it went away. I was sad about it. Then I was mad about it. Then I just said fuck it. But here I am again, and I'll try one more time. Saturday was a rilly hot day that involved moving things down here from Phfrit's. Necessary, but not loads of fun. So Sunday we took off for The City and played like children what with the eating (oysters on the half shell, Dungeness crab sandwich, Dim Sum, clam and garlic pizza) and the shopping (fans and hats and a jacket from Chinatown) and the music-listening (and authentic Chinese music group and blues at the Saloon). Monday was Big Dog Windy and full of assorted chores of the moving preparation kind. We'll see if'n I can post

Very warm here in the Big Valley. Over 85 degrees and somewhat humid, owing to the fact that everything is green green green from the recent April showers. Still painting in the bedroom. Last night we were joined for the supper by none other than Mrs. Blakesley of next door. Grilled sausage and peppers with a whisp of thin spagetti, dressed in only olive oil and garlic.

One week later, and we'll just see if I can keep on track now and post once a day. In the week Kahlil has been gone I have been busy finishing up the work here in the house, and Phfrit has been busy recovering from her broken wrist. And doing quite well, I might add. She starts therapy next week. The weather has been DDG (Drop Dead Gorgeous), in fact yesterday was our first 80+ degree day...so nice. The flooring is done (except for the transition strips), the cabinets are all painted...the bedroom was painted half-way yesterday...will finish today...and the movers come with the rest of Phfrit's stuff on the 27th.
