I had a surgeon slicing into my right eye 3 hours ago. But here I am, doing a late afternoon (5:45) blog post.. because.. it's what I do. I have a new lens in there.. and it's still very fuzzy, but hopefully it will clear up!
Early this morning, I was awoken at 3:30 am by flashing of lightning and thunder, then the rain started falling on the 2 skylights above our bed. And look! The rain washed the smoke from the sky and it's blue once more! Hallelujah!
I am so happy.. I don't know if the smoke will come back as the fires are still burning..
Just look at that blue!
Kristi and Travis went over to their house to check on things and take some items back there and look at the tomato harvest she brought back here!
She picked up eggs yesterday and there were two tiny ones that we think were laid by "Boots" her Bantam hen.

I'm the chief fish feeder now that Dayle is in solitary confinement. He had his last and most radioactive treatment yesterday. Poor baby. He will have to stay away from us for 7 more days. But the good part is that now he can eat real food. He's subsisted on oatmeal for a week or so. SO.. Kristi drove me to my eye surgery today and on our way home we picked him up a bucket of KFC chicken and he's happy. He also reports that he is feeling well and not having any pain or discomfort from the radiation treatments.
Travis and Caleb (11) headed out this afternoon to go crabbing and salmon fishing at Ilwaco, Washington. I will show you their catch on Monday. His best pal Ernie also went with them.
Does anyone know what kind of spider this is? It was on the boat. Creepy, huh? I insisted Hayden not kill it but take it up the hill and let it go. It was BIG!
Our 2nd successful sunflower.
I am sorry to announce that our wonderful Ruth Bader Ginsberg has died. The current president wasted no time to say he will replace her on the Supreme Court. Her dying wish was for the next president to replace her. But her loss is a blow to women's rights and to all liberal thinking people in our country. We'll see how this plays out.
I will leave you with this beautiful image of sea glass in front of a sunset over the ocean and a wonderful poem I found on Facebook.
I want to age like sea glass.Smoothed by tides,but not broken.I want my hard edges to soften.I want to ride the wavesand go with the flow.I want to catch a waveand let it carry meto where I belong.I want to be picked upand held gently bythose who delight in mywell earned patina andappreciate the changes I wentthrough to achieve that beauty.I want to enjoy the journeyand always remember that ifyou give the ocean somethingbreakable it will turn it intosomething beautiful.I want to age like sea glass...

I want to age like sea glass.
Smoothed by tides,
but not broken.
I want my hard edges to soften.
I want to ride the waves
and go with the flow.
I want to catch a wave
and let it carry me
to where I belong.
I want to be picked up
and held gently by
those who delight in my
well earned patina and
appreciate the changes I went
through to achieve that beauty.
I want to enjoy the journey
and always remember that if
you give the ocean something
breakable it will turn it into
I want to age like sea glass...
