This morning I went to the dentist for my biannual cleaning. I was given a referral to an oral surgeon to get my one wisdom tooth out. I had been hoping to avoid that but now that I think about it, my jaw has been a bit…off lately, so perhaps my wisdom tooth is the cause. I’ll go talk to the doctor and see what he says. It would probably be a good idea to get it removed and over with.
After the dentist, Gene and I met up with my family for brunch at a cafe in Castle Rock. At the end of it, my parents gave us a little topiary for the kitchen. It looks really good behind the sink, I like it.
Gene and I then drove to Castle Rock Park and hiked up to the top of Castle Rock. Well, not the top exactly. The actual castle part of Castle Rock doesn’t have a path to the top, you have to climb up the rocks. And with the trail being muddy, icy, and snowy, and I only in my tennis shoes, I didn’t think I was up to the challenge.
Still, it was a GORGEOUS day and the view was nice enough from where we were. These kinds of hikes are the ones that make me want a much better zoom lens for my camera. Alas, I do not take enough pictures for me to actually justify looking into buying one. Anyway, it’s better to experience the view, pictures never quite do nature justice.

Enjoyed brunch with every one! Topiary and cow look great!
Yeah, it turned out really well with the cow!
what’s with the blanket window dressings?
Gene doesn’t like the light that comes from those windows so we put up blankets. We’ll get blinds eventually to help.
