And the living is easy...

The beautiful summer morning sun was shining in the dining room this morning, lighting up the sunflowers I bought over the weekend--they are one of Nancy's favorites and who doesn't like them? Saturday was like an August day in Oregon--100 F and dry as a bone. Laundry on the line dried in 15 minutes.

Sunday was supposed to be the same, but it clouded up early and afternoon and evening thunderstorms cooled things off--very unusual for us. Today was warm, sunny, and in the afternoon, smokey. Must be a forest fire, or more likely valley grass field burning.

Finally, after a long and very cool spring, I think summer is here. This is why we live in Oregon! Maybe it's why people stayed--that, or it was too much to turn around and go back, so make the most of what is here.
