Where I Stood...

Sorry, it's been so long, but we have been without internet (due to where we stayed) for 5 days. That is good and bad...

This week was spent in the big D. This is where I stood (off and on) all week, in and out the door of our RV. Here is a photo of "the rig". We were hoping to find a used VW van to bring back with the trailer, but no 'banana' this time.

The RV bucked the wind all the way there on Monday. Whew, thought we were gonna blow away! Sad thing is, several birds lost their lives as they left the road as we approached, only to be blown back into us, whack!

My stepson got married. We were here for the ceremony.

Spent some time just enjoying the beauty of the Rockies to the west of our campsite in Chatfield State Park.

On Tuesday morning we saw coyotes (too quick to get a good photo) that live in the park one morning only about 50 yards away, and scad-zoodles of Canadian geese. Dogs really like to take walks and scoop up the goose doo doo, quicker than you can pull their little heads back from doing it. Yuck!!!! It was cold and snowed on Wednesday night.
Here is a photo of the morning sun, reaching through the pine tree outside our door.
This area is a great place to go ice fishing, if you are so inclined.

Dogs stayed at a very nice kennel/veterinarian for a few days in Littleton. It was the first time that the weimaraner has ever been returned to us without bloodshot eyes from stress. Here it is 3 days later and they are still recovering by sleeping all the time. I liken it to the same as we felt when we went to slumber parties. Remember the next day, how you went home and just slept???

Got some much needed shopping done of items (especially art supplies!) you can't find in these parts. Had dinner with old friends, which was entirely great, as well, at a Italian restaurant called 'Vita Bella'. Yummy! We haven't laughed that hard about old(as well as new) stories in quite some time! Thanks guys!

Due to the fact that I usually get carsick, I have a hard time reading or doing anything in the car when traveling, but since the road is straight and long and I can keep an eye on the road from the front seat, I tried some easy crocheting on the way home and was able to knock out some 'dishcloths'. So act surprised if you get one for Valentines Day, family and friends! (Notice my "helper" in the background. He is ready for some more sleep!)

"Where I Stand Sunday" is posted weekly. It helps chronicle the "journey". Too often we take for granted where we stand and what we are involved in. Used as a "vehicle" for journaling and a glance at "human geography", I; along with several others; note this day, in this way. I invite you to check "them" out, to compare and contrast the human events of Sunday in different parts of the country. If you would like to join in, please leave a comment below with your blog address and we will note it in our sidebar! Thanks for looking!
