What's up!

Denis and I just got back from our first bike ride of the year. We have started to have some nice weather here in the Rogue Valley! So we loaded up the bike rack on the back of the car. (By "we", I mean Denis.) We drove to a nearby park and caught the bike path that the city has following the length of Bear Creek, which runs through town and on to Ashland. The river was high and the path was quite scenic. There were quite a few people out riding, walking and jogging. So we got 30 minutes of excercise in.

We've also taken the opportunity to do some work in the garden. I pruned the roses the other day to within an inch of their lives, but it looks like they are going to survive. We have lots of buds starting to sprout. Two of the irises have buds and our periwinkle plants all have new flowers. Denis is working on a compost pile, and he spread fertilizer on the grass today.

In other news, I went to a scrapbooking party last night. I'm working on getting an album up to date with our current pictures. So far I'm up to Christmas of 2004, so I have a ways to go. But it is exciting to see some progress made and it's fun to see the pictures all in their place.

I hope spring is just around the corner in your neck of the woods too.
