I simply can’t let slide at least one post during this week+ of great date palindrome.
How have past ten months have slipped past so quickly without one blog post?
Autumn is quickly overtaking summer. Soaking rains and wind gusts have already brushed the warmth and smell of summer from the air. Summer in this area was brilliantly lovely this year. We had more temperate days with scattered days of refreshing rain but mostly sun, though only a handful of days where the thermometer climbed above 90F.
We didn’t take go anywhere for a vacation. Work has kept us busy but the pace slowed down enough to swim, even if only for 20 minutes, and sit in the back yard or under the apple tree and spin or knit for half an hour before it was time to fix supper.
The Idaho grandkids came to Oregon two back to back weekends. The first was with their mom which mostly involved her Oregon family ending the week at our friend’s campout swimming, fishing, and roasted marshmallows together.
J & L decided to surprise Ed for his birthday the following weekend. The kids were up for another long trek to Oregon! They took off work shortly after noon, spent the night at Aurora’s and showed up here the next morning bearing donuts.
Thankful for family, and the good memories of a good summer!
