The mural, The Faces of the East Bluff, has been unveiled!  If you have not seen it, it truly is worth a drive past 1902 N. Wisconsin.  I was honored to be asked to speak at the dedication and to help pull the cords to reveal the masterpiece.

I have lived in my home  for 23 years and have seen a lot of changes over that time.  There has been ups and downs.  I am really hopeful that we are on a  real upswing now! Most of my neighbors who have lived here for some time agree with me that it is better now than it was 10 years ago.  Change does not  take place in a matter of days.

I see that the foundation for one of the duplexes is going in and even more construction will take off once the weather breaks for good and the ground is thawed and relatively dry.

Ran the tiller over my garden spot and another time or two and it will be ready to plant.  Took my hyperactive Rat Terrier, Matilda, for a long walk this afternoon.  She is sleeping right now, but I know that won't last.  It is nice enough to have a couple of windows open.  Great to have some fresh air  in the house.

Life is good!
