Ho hum

Simply more perfection; we need some gray and chill wetness to feel normal. A newish climbing buddy and I had a nice session at the gym, almost all to ourselves. She's a freshly fledged lead climber, and almost unbearably enthusiastic to get on with it. There's a tricky patch in this situation, when a person new to lead belaying wants to practice catching falls; kind of reminds me of when a kid first starts to try pitching fastballs. Everybody needs to be watching and alert as hell. We did have fun, although I was too tired to fall on purpose.
The kids are off climbing those lovely granite cliffs again, and I am to water their baby garden. Do hope I get back up there again.
