cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Denver trip and my garden (posted by Ann)

We do seem to go in cycles, don't we? Sometimes we both post, sometimes just one of us is on a roll. It's been my turn to lay low, and yours to post a lot, but I'm back! I have a lot to catch you up on, so prepare to stay a while.

I'll start with our Denver trip. Wow, was that a lot of snow! I would never have been brave enough to drive up the mountain once the road turned a strip of snow that had a few tire tracks on it, but Don was behind the wheel and he just kept going.

This is the front of Lani and Steve's house, with Don standing by a lump of snow that he thought was a rock and is really a car, and Lani and Steve in the background. He has the car keys out (as though it would be moving anytime soon!)
This is of Tom and Margie's car outside the Wondervue Cafe, which gives you some idea of how much snow had come down that day. The margaritas were wonderful, even without power.

When we got back from Denver, spring had really arrived in Chicago. That means two things for me - sailing and gardening! Yay for both! I love my crabapple trees in the spring, they are just so colorful after a long gray winter.

The iris and my spring blooming clematis are also in bloom, with Pumpkin sitting and watching. That's about all she does these days, she's getting to be a old girl.

I've planted a lot this year, with snap peas and English peas, lettuce, cucumbers, eggplant, and once it got warm enough 7 tomato plants. I'm still looking for two more tomato varieties to get in the ground, and have designs on peppers, yellow squash, and zucchini. That ought to keep me busy!

More later, I have knitting, sailing and more gardening to show - but enough for now, it's a beautiful Sunday morning so I'm going outside!
