A sure sign of spring

A robin in my tree this morning. Right outside my kitchen window. I usually see those little Goldfinches at my feeder, but this time I zoomed in to my Mulberry Tree.

I love Robins.

Recent Activities for the Adams Family

On February 11, as part of Great Basin College's "Love Your Body Week" we Walked the Walk. Students were encouraged to walk designated tracks that day, but due to the weather and general apathy, only a few showed up. Left to right: My daughter, Jenna Adams; my boss, Lisa Campbell; Jolina Adams (me), and student, James Simonsen.
It was very cold, and snowed just as we were finishing the 4:00 p.m. short track. Winnemucca, Nevada
