The Family of Four (see post below) were rear-ended this morning while stopped during road construction. A young man wasn’t paying attention and didn’t see that traffic had come to a standstill. J saw him barreling towards them and stomped on the brake hoping the impact wouldn’t send them into the car ahead. It did. Their Honda was accordianed, babies strapped into car seats in back, J&M in front. M’s seat buckled and broke. Miraculously no one was seriously injured. J&M are getting more stiff and sore as the hours wear on but we’re all so extremely thankful the babies and parents were unharmed.
The WeeOne at fourteen days.
And Feathers, who was enthralled with “helping” me warp the loom.
Sad to say, I’ve made little progress beyond this stage. The plan is a linen warped, weft faced rug – my first.
Walk With Me Wednesday and gaze at Butte Creek , taken just around the block from our house.
EDITED:6.19 I hadn’t realized that the youtube video had lost the sound, and the picture quality was poor. Will try again. In the meanwhile will a couple pictures suffice?
After taking the mail to the PO I wandered on down to the creek for a moment’s reflection and saw these ducks only when the female stood up and flapped her wings. Running back home I snatched up the camera. By the time I returned they’d settled down and the colorful plumage of the male had faded with the shifting sun.
Moseying on upstream a ways I was slightly astonished to see these and ran onto the bridge for a better shot:
Little did they realize who’s peace they were about to disturb.
