I took the motorcycle out for a spin this morning. I took Hwy 93 through Boulder to Hwy 66 east of Lyons then traveled east past Longmont to US85 at Platteville. I went south to Fort Lupton then west on Hwy 52 through Dacono to Hwy 118 at Niwot and rejoined Hwy 93 in Boulder. I stopped for lunch at the Sonic Drive Inn in Westminster and got gas across the street. It was a pleasant 120 mile ride. There were a lot of bicyclists on the highways today.
We've had quite a bit of snow along the Colorado front range this past month. Denver recorded 22.2 inches of snow in February breaking the record last set in 1912. We've stayed in the double digit temperatures (20&30's) for most of February but they are calling for single digit temperatures later this week.
I haven't done much of anything productive so far this year. I haven't taken any stunning photos or taken any trips. I have been trying to get back into painting and drawing but have trouble sticking with it. I have been watching a lot of painting & drawing 'How to' videos.
I had to take the cat to the vet a couple of times this year. He developed a couple of red sores around his neck and under his chin. It turns out that he scratched himself. The vet thinks he has a seasonal allergy. After an injection of steroids and an inject of antibiotics he's all well again. They also put some rubber tips, called 'Soft Paws', on his claws.
I've been staying home quite a bit simply because I don't like to go out when it's cold or slippery outside. I'm looking forward to it warming up enough to make it comfortable outside (not too cold & not too hot.) Maybe then I'll put on my French artist cap and go outside and make art.
