Errands. Lots of errands.
We are trying to find a small bed side table or dresser for the guest room, so we travelled to a few estate sales and a furniture store til we found one workable (not good, but workable) at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Lincoln City. We had a great lunch at a brew pub there, and also brought this beauty home:
We walk a lot here, and yesterday did a new hike at a state natural area called Sitka Sedge. It was about three miles around a wetlands and out to the beach.
This looks almost like a painting we have.
And finally---the beach, and our rock from a different direction.
Aquiline is done, and is blocking. It will need an ironing but I don't have an iron here.
It has a fairly simple picot bindoff that is sort of unpronounced (hence it needs ironing). The colors are so cheerful! I'll take another photo in the sun later.

The political situation--ugh. Republican senators walked out of a vote on cap and trade to address climate change in Oregon, so there's not a quorum to vote. The governor ordered State Troopers to go out and 'round them up'. This is not the first time this has happened in state legislatures, and it is not just Republicans that act like spoiled children in this way. This has got to stop, and I appreciate efforts to bring the poisonous discourse in line.
Ravelry took their own steps to address this (banning hate speech, which they have described as any pro-Trump messaging) and are now facing the inevitable slings and arrows from this decision.
Let's end with a sunset.
