Karen over at PediaScribe tagged me for the “what’s outside your blogging window?” meme. My laptop is in the corner of the kitchen, in a built-in desk with cabinets and never ever enough space. To my left and slightly behind me is the deck door to the backyard. The view from my blogging window used to be a pastoral scene: large, empty field with wild grasses and my favorite, silence. Not so much anymore.
That’s Longs Peak in the background, flaunting the snow we got this weekend. It’s all melted down here, but the peaks are all frosted with snow. In the foreground is the school land, set aside for ballfields and such. That arena-like thing is an inline hockey rink; that park was put in this summer. Before about May or so, this entire field behind my house was empty.
