Really not much to say

Yesterday was work and dealing with all that life throws at you. I knit three rows.

Two pinks and a dark blue row.

I knit this during "Unforgotten" on PBS which is really, really good.


When I got home from work yesterday, Tim and I drove over to the Willamette River near our house to check out the river levels. We went to Island Park. To get there, you cross the river on the main street and then turn off the main street and go down a hill and then make a right and go under the bridge you just crossed and there's a big parking lot to park in right by the river.

Well, that is how it usually goes.  Here is the downhill part, with a picture of the place you make a right turn and the bridge usually you go under. The water is up higher than the right turn and the whole place is flooded.

The blue sign says 'boat turn around no parking' and it is usually a big loop of pavement so boats can turn around. Yesterday ducks could turn around.

Most people don't have basements here, but those who do are having water in the basement. The weather people say the worst is over after three days of hard rains but it is still pretty grey out there.  Hopefully the river will start to recede soon.

And one last thing

I occasionally post some of the nutty things that come in the 'Craft Gossip Newsletter' and here is another one. It kind of defines "phoning it in for Easter."

It's just amazing to see what water can do . . . in areas that are usually high and dry. I hope things dry out soon. (Although . . . lucky ducks. . . ) Your shawl is looking really good.

Yikes! That's a whole lot of water. Hope it recedes sooner rather than later. The shawl is looking nice.

Wow! All that rain sure added up in all the wrong places!

Whoa, I hope that there are warning signs on that road!

I might have to make that Easter basket this year. Mice got in our attic and nested in the kids' baskets this past year. Ick! Hope the water recedes quickly and glad you don't have a basement. Flood water is so nasty!
