I love that the mountains are greening up. It's only the middle of January, and the days are warm (almost too warm) and everything is turning green again . . . well, as green as it ever gets around here. Roxanne and I went hiking this week. I asked her how long or how far she wanted to go. She agreed to go anywhere I wanted, so we went on quite a hefty hike - just short of 3 hours. Did she get tired? no. Sore? no. Oh to be a teenager again. It was fun to spend a few hours with her. How can you live in a house with someone and not really have many opportunities to slow down and talk? I think we've got to do this more often.
