Multiple different pics
Mac, making himself comfortable on our unmade bed.
I wrote of our time at the Art Festival & how tired i was. When i laid down, this was my view.
Multi-million dollar houses on the hill across the street from the Festival of the Arts.
Duane sent this to me from his helitac training yesterday. (He is not in this pic.) He enjoyed it a lot & thought it was a fun day. I thought it was a 4 hour training, but it turned out to be 8+ hours.
We bought this mat for the front door today. We think it a fun thing, although i know from sad experience that it won't stay looking this bright & pretty for very long.
The art project i'm doing, in progress. It is the "Around the World" quilting pattern but made with scrapbooking paper. I'll put an image on it when this part is done. I'm being very slow because it needs to fit well. This has a lot of mistakes in it & is very imprecise. I'm finding this is much more of an energy drain for me than simply knitting.
The baby blanket i just finished. The colors aren't quite true in this pic. The lavender around the edges doesn't really match the colors inside, but it was the best i can do. This is the first baby blanket i've made in a while that i actually like. It is going to the daughter of a friend of mine. Her baby girl is due the end of October. I'm pleased with this blanket, although i don't think the border was the best choice.
Mac & Jazz. (They had wanted to sit on the baby blanket as i took a pic of it. I didn't let them.)
This is where i spend most of my time. Today we bought the wire thingy (used 2 of the shelves for something else) & i tried to straighten up my side of the bed. It is usually a mess. I don't really like this look much, but it is neater than it was.
Much of this was the mess where the wire thingy is now. I need to put this junk away!
This is where we store the sheets & the basket on top is for dirty clothes. I had 2 stacking plastic bins here with the summer or winter sheets inside (& the ones being used on top). But i found that they absorbed a plastic smell while stored & had to be washed a couple of times, which seemed a waste to me. After debating our options, we decided to put the sheets on shelves instead.
Yes, the door to our bedroom has windows in it! But it is just the two of us, & when we do have company, our bed can't be seen from outside the door.
Since i spend so much time in bed, & blog from bed, too, this is the view from there. This is fairly late afternoon, with the sun coming in.
We had a couple of really cool days here. The lows were 24F & 26. I think we broke a record on Thursday for the "lowest high" on record. I think the high that day was 61F. But it has warmed back up & the past couple of days have been in the 70s. A few of our trees are beginning to have yellowed leaves. Fall is soon to be here. We'll have winter sheets back on the bed soon. (Duane will be happy.)
Duane just rushed out the door a few minutes ago. SAR had a call-out. A hiker with a broken ankle needs to be brought in. If he actually goes (sometimes he gets to the station & is told that the team isn't needed), he will probably be gone for several hours. The call-out is in a valley at least 40 minutes from here. He does love to be part of the team.
Thank you for all the well-wishes for our anniversary. We had a lovely day.
