2012 On the plains in Northern Arizona, two families joined forces and began the trials and tribulations of building a small family farm with nothing in the bank but love.
Last Thursday, I opened with noting we'd had snow but it had all but gone. Today I can say the snow is still here. It started some time in the night Wednesday and continued on and off all morning. Still not enough to totally cover all the bare ground.
Since there is still no farming to do or building of the green house or watering system, we've been getting out and exploring. I still have a bathroom and living room to paint but couldn't get the energy to do it. Maybe next week, depending on if Sadi has arrived or not. I intended on having all the painting done by the time she arrived. I really hate to paint so I've been dragging my feet. Writing has taken a higher priority.

Frank and I explored around Prescott. We had lunch at a new sandwich place in Prescott called Scout's. Great fresh food. Then we went looking for Granite Basin Lake. There are numerous trails around the area for bikes, horses and hiking. Lots of camping in the area. There were signs posted to drive carefully, high use area, so I can imagine how crowded it is in the summer. We didn't have much competition for space on our hike although we were passed by five horses and riders.
We live in a great part of Arizona as far as being close to so many good day trips. We've made a promise to ourselves to get out like this more often.
