And it is summer

I'm still in the frame of mind that all the stuff needs to get done now, but I'm here and it is beautiful and life is good. For whatever reason, I was up around 5:30 (AGAIN!) and Pilot and I got up and sat on the deck and listened to the waves and watched the fog roll in. It was a nice way to start the day.


Just two crazy kids who gave one another the same anniversary card.

Three days of knitting
And I have half a foot to show.

Crazy sky last night

Insert heavenly chorus of 'ahhhh' here!

And on our walk

We took the dogs for a long walk after dinner last night (Tim made dinner and it was delicious---steaks, farm corn, homemade bread, and a salad we didn't eat but we will have for lunch today). We walked past a fallen tree branch and I noticed something interesting about it--

Let me see if I can sharpen it up for you.

Well, that didn't work. Anyway. You'll see two 'black holes' in this picture--one in the upper left hand corner and one on the right side of the tree trunk about halfway down. Those aren't black holes--they are two baby crows! If you look at the bottom on the right hand side you can see that there is some kind of nest there. We walked by it and Pilot started nosing around and then we saw the first one, followed by the second one. They seemed large but not yet ready to leave the next, apparently. Mama was flying overhead and not pleased.

The To Do list

I wrote out the summer to do list and even crossed one thing off of it, and need to remind myself I don't have to do everything this week. I'm always like this in the summer. I'll be a totally different person by Friday.

So funny that you each got the same card. Happy Anniversary. I thought that was a nest in the photo, but I didn't see the crows (still can't, but I'll believe you - lol). I like those moody clouds at night - so pretty. Nice sock too!

Beautiful pics! Someone forgot to look up when they cut that branch with a nest in it! Happy anniversary!

". . .and a salad we didn't eat. . ." made me choke on my Dr Pepper a little. (Would have done a spit-take, but hate to waste.)

It's funny you got each other the same card. Great minds think alike and all... :)
Great photos! I hope the little crows will survive their branch being cut down.

That is hilarious -- that you bought the same card -- and a sign that you belong together!
I hope those baby birds weren't too frightened by the branch falling.
I need to make a list. I have been scattered in my crafting during this first week of summer.
