I did get a good start on hand-sewing the binding...as a righty, that didn't bother me. I'm about half way around it now. Sorry for the blur in this image. Do not attempt to adjust your fashion eyewear. I was trying to take the picture without flash.
When I'd had quite enough of that, I decided to go for a walk. With today's walk, I managed to get in three days of exercise this week from my goal of four. I give myself a "B" for the week. Here are some things I saw on my walk.
There are quite a few holly farms in the area, and we end up with wild holly everywhere. The birds carry the seeds and drop them, and voila! Holly springs up. Here's one of my more paranoid neighbors:
I can never approach the llamas. They always run off.
When I set off, I had in mind this clearing as my turn-around point. We were luckier than our lowland neighbors again today. They were socked in with thick cloud cover while those of us who live on the ridge enjoyed blazing sunshine. It does make for a pretty picture.
On my way back, I noticed Mt. Adams to the north.
While I was snapping that picture of Mt. Adams, one of my friendlier neighbors approached the fence, looking for a handout no doubt.
The ferns and the holly are the only green things growing right now. I love seeing the sun shine through the ferns.
When I saw the ferns, I was minutes from home.
As I'm writing this, I'm just waiting for some chicken pot pie filling to cool so that I can put a crust on it. It takes quite a while to make the filling, but it makes enough for four meals. We'll each have one for dinner, and then I'll leave two in the fridge for Mike to eat when I'm gone next week. Can't come home to a husband starved to death, now can I? I mean, who would feed the kitties?
So that's my day. Tomorrow we're going to make a drive over to the Oregon Garden in Silverton to drop off my quilt for the show. We're hoping for another sunny day.
What did you do today?
