A Look Back

My "To Do" list is growing by the minute.
 Time to slow down for a moment and see what was going on in March previously.

It seems that last year, I was still on a roll about water and my frustration with our politicians for not allowing us to prepare for dry years.
We are still dry as a bone. 
 Irrigation of the walnuts will begin this weekend and Hubby is frightened to turn on the pump.
Will turning the Ag well on, pull water from the domestic well causing it to go kapoot? 
We shall see.

Looking back through this blog is  like my diary. 
I had completely forgotten about this Leprachaun mail and how excited Lollipop Pop was.

Skiing with the cousins was fun but with everyone in college next year, I fear it won't happen anymore.
The ski resort closed a full month earlier this year as well because of the snowless and warm conditions. 
The owners try so hard and just need some weather help.

Chris took a video earlier this season that I will share soon. 
It was beautiful on the run, but no white stuff anywhere else.

I miss Izumi
Japan is just too far away.

We have no goats...babies or otherwise anymore. 
 They sure were cute.

Scout was a great dog. 
Patient and loving.

Sometimes looking back is simply a way to remember and reminisce.
Life gets so hectic that it is good to slow down and simply enjoy those memories.
Other times, we look back because we can't seem to look forward.
We don't see a path in that direction.
No matter how hard we try.
Today is also a day that a lot of the people I care about will be celebrating a very special woman. 
 As we look back at her life as a wife, mother and friend we will remember the fun...the bone deep love she had for her sons and husband.
Her loyalty toward her friends.
I pray that a sense of peace and comfort will begin to surface as we look back and remember.
