No Run For Me!

OK, a new day . . .

Unfortunately we aren't going running today.  I hate missing runs but the air is full of smoke from the fires in the Pacific Northwest  The mountains trap it in.  We need a "wind event" to blow out this nasty air!  This is the view from our back deck.

In the front yard, looking down the street.

Again in the front yard, looking at the mountain across the street.  And it gets worse as the day goes on.

On a nicer note, I FINALLY was able to see a cantaloupe!  Actually, I found 4 of them.  It seems like they just appeared over night.  I hope they will ripen before the frost sets in this fall!

I had enough tomatoes and cucumber for a salad with my sandwich for lunch.

Oops, how did this happen?

Not pictured because I forgot:  Banana and peanut butter.

It's been a slow day so I spent much of the afternoon reading.  I finished the book Auschwitz and then started Saving Grace



  1. WOW....that smoke looks awful. Will it get closer to your house?
    Doesnt sound like you got to the garage sale stuff.
