Into the Greening


Moving into the new year  with the promise of rain. As long as it doesn’t get too cold, we should see the hills around us grow green in the coming weeks.

Spent some of the day mending things, doing a little more organizing (the sock drawer, the wardrobe, the tool baskets in the pantry). It feels good to set things aright at the turning of the year.


The drought has even been hard on the formidable juniper.

Spent another part of the day reminiscing with my mother about our travels in France and elsewhere. She’s staying for a nice long while, and it was good to not have to work at the beginning of her visit.

Hydra and I took a short hike. Gorgeous day. Had a chance to try the fabulous 18-140 lens Hydra gave me for Christmas…to replace the 18-105 that I broke when I stood up from my seat on a wall next to the Seine and it dropped to the sidewalk. It’s been my favorite lens for years. This new one goes to eleven!

Planning to post a photo a day for the month of January.
