The weather seemed to change every hour this weekend, creating some bizarre clothing patterns. This is the time of year that the heat is turned way down but there is a blanket on the couch. We had rain, snow, sleet, hail, wind, sun, fog and probably some other descriptive words I can't think of.
The way the storms roll in still amazes me. Looking out the window you suddenly can't see the mountains but you can look up and see the cloud bank edge as if it were having a battle with the sun. When you are out of the trees and into the plains you can watch it creep down the ridges as if it's going to be a white out. It was a battle like that all weekend and I had to deice the car windows on Monday morning but it was beautiful.

I'm about 95% (that's probably not saying much in my life) and I only spent 2 hours at the gym last night. Jiu Jitsu is going well even if I don't have any idea of what I'm doing. Kickboxing is improving, I'm working hard on my flexibility but it's a slow process. MMA sparring didn't go so well last week but I'm hoping that was because of me being sick. I'm having a good time and working on defense with an occasional flurry of beating the tar out of my opponent.
The garden is ready to be planted this weekend but I've got some work stuff going on so it might wait until mid next week. Tomato, cucumber, hot peppers and zucchini. A very simple garden this year with a few dozen heads of lettuce already growing tall. At the cabin we will plant a lot more variety because it's still in experimental mode, trying to determine what grows well without much attention (and without getting eaten by the wildlife).
We need to get some jelly canned in the next few weeks so that means a trip to Costco for flats of berries and other goodies. Time to dig up a jar of money.
