Quick trip to Eugene

 I drove back early yesterday and man, the smoke is bad here. It's just yellow. It seemed to clear up a bit last night but it is back to unhealthy today. I took a long walk with the dogs this morning to 'catch up' on the neighborhood--several new builds happening, which is disconcerting to see them pop up (but fine! Glad that workers are getting jobs). 

The fires seem to be under control, rain is in the forecast, and people feel more optimistic regarding fires (Covid is another matter of course).

I had a dentist appointment (my first one during the pandemic) yesterday and then Comet has a vet appointment this afternoon, and then we'll head back. Comet broke a tooth so I'm guessing it will need to be extracted, so one of us will be back in a week or so.

So what else am I doing? Well, had a good visit at the farm yesterday afternoon and will go back this morning. 

This first photo is lightened up a bit so you can see her pretty face.

Here she is with her mama Tink.

Yes she has schmutz all over her.

Calypso wasn't interested in anyone.

I've been playing around with some 'origami' kind of cards---an 8 1/2 x 11 card gets folded and then smaller cards with sentiments/notes/pictures gets inserted into the fold. Hard to explain but they are fun and fast!


I'll be back with knitting content tomorrow or Friday. Stay safe and well.

Be careful out there! Love the cards with the pockets.

Those alpacas never disappoint! Even with schmutz on their faces.

It sure makes you feel better when you visit with an alpaca!
The cards are looking really good-I like the way they slip inside the fancy paper!

Always good to see the alpacas. Cute and clever cards - I like them. HOpe your air quality improves pronto.

So glad the alpacas are okay -- I've actually been thinking about them and hoping they were faring well with the fires and the smoke. Love your cards! Very clever. XO
