Pancakes for Peace and early April

A lot of loving volunteer effort, including rabbits, made for delight and full tummies at the 32nd Annual Pancakes for Peace. Luckily it didn't rain at 11am when every small person was out on the Chico Area Recreation District lawn, looking for eggs... This year the emphasis was on organic eggs and less toxic dyes but I don't know if the kids cared. Reports of eggs journeying down Big Chico Creek were not uncommon. At any rate, the tradition continues.
 Once home we have been enveloped in our own world of things to of which was going to Sacramento so Michael could have a laparoscopy to check his innards... to see if they were amenable for a major cancer surgery which is now scheduled for next week.
 Rain and sun have produced bumper crops of weeds but also the earth fortifying ground-covers of vetch, peas, and fava beans. Down the road, at the intersection of Normal and Not So Normal, the wisteria spill over everything.
 And the wild cucumber, fragile and prolific creeps over the swimming hole steps that Michael built. It won't be long til hot weather and an end to those things that are running amok. Everything in its time. I love spring but will be glad when this period has passed.
