Spring fever has hit us like a ton of bricks! Drove up to the cabin Saturday evening to watch the meteor shower from the hill overlooking the Ranch. We thought it would be the best location because the Ranch has open hills for the horses to graze and little to no light to interfere with the starlight. It was a little cool but we snuggled up with blankets on our beach chairs so that we could recline to enjoy the show and to our amazement we saw four yes 4 meteors! Well not the spectacle we were hoping for but it was the only clear night on the weather calendar during the meteor showers from April 16 til the 22nd the best night predicted to be the 22nd but clouds and work precluded the possibility of being up there then. However the weather was dry and mild and it was the first time since we bought the place that we went up just for fun and no work! It was a brief stay as we had our future daughter-in-law's bridal shower Sat. morning and Dan wanted to work on his outdoor fireplace at home while the weather was nice but still a very nice respite from the work week and a sneak peak into fun times ahead this summer!
