We having a lovely run of sunny days. To be precise, the weather is perfect. Cool evenings, warm days, easy breezes.. lovely. The view from the dining room out onto the deck with all our pots of flowers. Happy scene.
I wanted to show you the flowers that Kristi brought to me from Pike Place Market in Seattle. Really pretty. One of the orchids she brought home bloomed again, too. :-)
It's so neat to have one re-bloom.. and pretty quickly too!
Kristi harvested all this zucchini when she got home from their trip - she's going to grate up the big ones and freeze it so we can make zucchini bread all winter. :-)
Our wildcat Simba missed Kristi while they were gone. Dayle spoiled him while they were gone, though.. giving him lots of moist canned food along with the dry. Dayle got close to him and thought the cat liked him and went to pet him and *SWIPE* he got a nice bloody scratch for him efforts. :-)
The guys and Travis' work friend Ernie went fishing yesterday on our C-Dory and took the boys. They caught 2 King Chinook Salmon, they hooked 3 more and lost them right at the boat.. but "boated" 2 of them. Caleb was inside the cabin on his Kindle during this picture. :-)
The guys had a beautiful day for their trip. And this was after the guys got off work and the boys got out of school. Tonights dinner menu will be baked salmon, steamed zucchini in butter and jasmine rice. :-)
This pretty VW Bus was parked in front of the Springdale Tavern yesterday - I stopped dead in the middle of the road to snap a photo. Isn't it pretty?
I just finished this book and it was really good. I highly recommend it. PLUS, I just found out it's been made into a movie which is out right now! I might try to go see it. What amazes me is that this is this woman's first novel!
Eek, I better finish this and pack my swim bag, Gracie will be here soon and we're heading up the Columbia River Gorge for lunch and a swim at the mineral hot springs! I hope your week is going well. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
