We had an above average year of snow fall in the mountains of Colorado this last winter. With warm weather and some rains recently we are once again watching the water rise and some places further upstream from us are getting flooded again. You may remember the flood story from last year. Well Kevin and I noticed last Sunday the water was raising again and spreading back out. So we took a little walk across the bridge:
We see this new path under the bridge being created again, this was not there a few days before.
Here you can see the water is rising. Remember last year when we had the flood, the water was over a mile wide and up above this bank flooding into the park beyond those trees. It would have a LONG way to go to get there again this year, and we don't anticipate that, but still it is high for our area.
I think how nature provides for us and the power of the water is truly amazing to see what it can do.

There is something about NonPareils that I love. Maybe it is the memories of my mom getting them for me, albeit rarely, from the Sears candy counter as a kid. Maybe it is the crunch of the white dots when you eat them.. anyway I just love them. So when I was at Costco and they had a bag of them, into the cart they went. There was a look from Jody that said to me "Do you really need that?", but I left it in the cart anyway.
So the brand that they had at Costco was Guittard, and they are a pretty well known chocolatier, so I expected something good. Needless to say I got what I expected. The discs are a little over 1" in diameter and are just the right thickness and snap nicely when you bite into them. I'll be sad when the bag is gone, but such is life and maybe Costco will have them next time I am there. :)
Next up... working on the sizable stash that arrived from Germany...

Hey Guess what? Did you know that Kevin really likes chocolate? He does and if you know him at all, you already knew it. Well our friends in Germany also know.... You all remember our exchange student Florian? Well his family sent us a great Easter box. We just got it a week ago, and it was packed FULL of really yummy treats. Check it out.....now for me...there are mint eggs, and a mint chocolate bar....I love mint...don't get me wrong, I like a lot of the others but those are my favorites.
