I made blackberry/banana bread
Did you know that if bananas aren't ripe enough for banana bread, you can put them in the oven (with the peel on) at 300 degrees until they start turning black? Yes you can.
I made a shadow box thingee
I have an idea in my head and am learning how to do paper shadowboxes.
I helped Tim make a pile of wood
I started making this
And I got thrown
We had a plan for yesterday but it got derailed--first I got some bad news about the death of my mom's best friend, which threw me off kilter (she was 92 and in poor health, and had been bedridden for a year, so it wasn't unexpected but I just wasn't expecting it, if that makes any sense). Her daughter is my oldest friend--I have never not known her.
Then on the way out to get something to eat, Tim's flat tire light went on and so instead of doing what we planned to do he took his car up to Tillamook and got two tires replaced. He completed that pretty quickly so he came back, we went to a local art show which we had planned to go to, and then sat on the beach for a bit.
I feel better, less thrown, today, and am thinking about Darcy and her mom and all the good times we've had together. The four of us (me, Darcy, and moms) went to London and then sailed back across the Atlantic 35 or so years ago (jeez) and we have great memories of that.
I'll drive back to Eug tomorrow to see the alpacas and I have two meetings on Tuesday, then back out here for the last push before the new school year.
