Leah and I went to Denver for my school’s spring break. It was a fun trip, and hopefully it explains why we haven’t posted much in the last week. Also, the trip nearly explains why I have a hurt back, as when reaching down to pick up my luggage, on the way to the airport, I threw it out. Bags are heavy, right? If you read the preceding sentence carefully, however, you might notice I didn’t throw out my back picking up my luggage, but threw it out as I bent over. Apparently this is a sign of getting old. But besides a bit of pain the trip was really a blast.
My sister is going to graduate school for library science in Denver. We went to meet her, and we got to see her college as well as a book archive where she works. My parents met us in the city, and together we did some hikes at Red Rocks and Lair of the Bear (what a neat name, right?), Leah and I did yoga, we toured both the Coors Brewery and Celestial Seasonings (the tea company, famous for Sleepy Time), we ate a lot of good food, and we went to a factory-turned-food-and-shopping-hall called The Source (I guess we have a thing for converted mills). The trip was a blast, and now that we are back and settled we’ll start writing about it very soon.
