Quiet and uneventful this week, yes, but given all the alternatives these days, that is nothing to complain about. Especially when skies are mostly blue and even the winter trees look golden in the sun (and it is December in... Continue reading

It wasn't a terribly inspiring week. Boring appointments and other routine unbloggable stuff took up a lot of what ought to be all the time in the world, but somehow is not. The weather cooled down quite suddenly with some... Continue reading

It was perfect October weather last week -- just about as perfect as perfect can be. Not too hot, not too cold. No rain, but it has rained recently so it's no longer too dry! All the colors of Autumn... Continue reading

What a week! Even in 2020, the one just past stands out as one of the strangest -- nationally. Everybody knows that already, so I'll just say that since we are still in semi-isolation, we probably have way too much... Continue reading

We had rain off and on and wind last week -- the first official week of Fall in the USA. One windy afternoon we were reading quietly when there was a strange and loud noise outside our window. Here's what... Continue reading

It rained hard last Thursday night! The storm cleared the air enough so that on Friday we were able to go grocery shopping, even to the Farm Market. And on Saturday afternoon, the sun came out for a little while... Continue reading

We are safe at home, but the State of Oregon is burning up. Government authorities have reported over a million acres have burned. It is hard to believe that a week ago today (Sunday) my weekly blog post talked about... Continue reading

It was HOT last week! Oregonians aren't used to 90 degree temperatures -- It's really not even fun to go for a walk when it's that warm. One morning we took a drive up into the hills East of us... Continue reading

We stayed at the coast for a couple of nights last week. It was our first out-of-town trip since we arrived back home in early April. We have always loved the fact that the Eugene-Springfield area is so close to... Continue reading

It's been hot -- for here in western Oregon -- reaching the high 90s on a couple of days last week. It doesn't even reach those temperatures until mid-afternoon; mornings have only been in the mid-70s at the highest. That's... Continue reading

We took a "not-a-Sunday Drive" to Finley Wildlife Refuge one day last week. I think it was Tuesday -- or Wednesday --- who knows these days? They do all tend to blend together. The Finley is a diverse natural area... Continue reading
