Since my work schedule is so pleasantly flexible, I was able to work from the Harris kitchen Friday. Saturday I got to have brunch with my little sister Lauren. It was great to see her face-to-face. Think that'll become a monthly occurrence.
Saturday afternoon I headed down to Colorado Springs to visit my old roommate - the infamous Clistie Puckett. Actually, as she's moving to Laramie shortly, we've decided to become roommates once again. She took me walking in the Red Rocks area, we went to the zoo, and ate dinner at a Greek restaurant complete with dancing, fire breathing, and plate smashing - OPA! Sunday we went to church and then to an ultimate frisbee game. I was going to play and relive my high school days, but I had a bit of a stomach ache and headed back to Laramie in the early afternoon. What a great weekend though. And now back to work!
An interesting aside, Colorado Springs was one of the areas with large fires last summer. There's a time lapse video of the Waldo Canyon fire below, though I suggest skipping ahead to Tuesday as it's rather long. Clistie's boyfriend is actually one of the people who was in the command post coordinating the firefighting efforts, which helped him to become the youngest ever Red Cross CEO, and he's posted here in Wyoming. The fire took out some 400 homes when it jumped the mountains into Colorado Springs - and on one day it was 102 degrees and 0% humidity...guess I better prepare for summer!
