Did you have a nice weekend, my darlings? I hope you had a nice weekend. Our weekend was spent mostly indoors watching people beat each other up, and it rained on the 4th anyway, so I haven’t got any fireworks photos. And I haven’t got any photos of playing chase-the-little-green-apples with the kitties because I was too busy throwing apples to take pictures. In other words, we attempted laziness and mostly succeeded.
And there was near-constant eating. So. Much. Food.
We did head over to Juanita Bay on Sunday evening for a little light exercise, and I got a few near-sunset images you may like.
I quite enjoyed these tall waving grasses against the wetlands trees.
And there’s a bird in this photo – I’ll let you explore for it.
The moon was out, and with the angle of the sun, some bits appear brighter than usual:
Quite a nice water lily:
The water lilies haven’t got super-busy yet – there’s still only a few here and there.
Bellevue’s downtown was beautifully illuminated by the setting sun:
And here ’tis the whole shebang from the end of the boardwalk:
I have a feeling I’ll end up at Juanita a lot once I’m (hopefully) gainfully self-employed. It’s peaceful and refreshing and the scenery is to die for.
Three days left. Doesn’t feel quite real, yet, and I’m afraid my place o’ work will find some way to make me stay. But if all goes well, when I leave Wednesday night, it will be the last time I do it as an employee. Then I can devote my entire life to writing for you. Well, that and creating fun and possibly clever things for folks to buy. You have no idea how much I’m looking forward to turning the billion tons of rocks I’ve got into neato little things people might enjoy. And I’ll bet the cat will love it, too. She’s ancient, but she’s still got all her kitty curiosity, and she loves it when Mommy starts doing unusual stuff. It’s nice that I can spend the last years of her life making her happy.
Right. Off to prepare myself for the home stretch….
