Ahhh.. summer. It was so lovely, warm and pleasant yesterday that I took my crochet basket out on the deck and spent some hours listening to the water and adding more rows on the Sunday Shawl. One more skein of pink and it will be time to start on the colorful lace edging. :-)
Dayle ran some errands and then joined me on the deck. We noticed that our feral cat Simba had come down to the creek for a drink. I must say that a lot of wildlife enjoys the water of our creek and pond. Birds drink and bathe and who knows what kind of wild animals visit under the cloak of darkness. I can say without hesitation that skunks, raccoons, coyotes, deer and possums use it for their drinking fountain. I'm not sure what else!
He kind of looks like a little cougar. We have those in the forests around us but am unsure if one has ever visited our pond. I kind of hope not!
After enjoying our visit to Timberline Lodge so much I decided to join the Friends of Timberline. Just today I received a thank you letter and 2 pins, one for Dayle and me. I will proudly wear this on my Friends of Multnomah Falls vest I wear when I volunteer at the falls. Which I will be doing tomorrow.
Our daughter Amy took our granddaughters to King's Island in Ohio and sent me this photo of them in front of the Eiffel Tower there. I thought... when did they go to Paris? LOL! Jenna is now taller than Amy and Paige is catching up, too. :-)
Dayle just dropped Buddy off at the groomer. We're trying a new one as the last one nicked him badly in a few spots which resulted in us having to take him to the vet! I hope this one is more gentle. Poor little guy is 14 years old now and is getting elderly. But he still can run like a puppy!
What are you doing on this fine day? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
