Living in town means wires through my view. But there was such a pretty little last hurrah before night. The rain in these clouds is holding off long enough for me to mow the grass. Which can go to sleep any time it wants.
Been away for a few days for a family trip to the beach. It was wonderful: a little windy at times — by “a little”, I mean sandblasting, but the southern Oregon coast is wild and scenic, which means bring a jacket — and it was beautifully sunny.
Did a little hiking, a little tidepooling, a little rock collecting. Monster Girl was completely wiped out, and so was I. All that fresh air! I love summer.
I’m working on a cover for a science fiction romance in my Sheerways series. Whaddaya think so far? I’m thinking J.J. Abrams might be interested. Just FYI I would TOTALLY help write anything Star Wars/Trekkie! (Spoiler alert: There will be waaaaaaay more kissing in mine!)
Been putting the garden to bed for the winter, but there’s still a bit of color left, here and there. Reds and yellows turning to brown, but still lots of green. Especially the kale. I suspect nothing will kill the kale.
The apple was from the last day of the farmers’ market near me. I’ve never eaten a pink-fleshed apple before. Of course I promptly forgot the name, but it’s crisp and fairly sweet with a bit of dryness. Quite tasty in salad.
I also ate a strawberry and a raspberry from the garden. Silly fruits, there’s not enough sunlight to make sugar. Go to sleep and I’ll see you in the spring.
