There have been lots of changes in the wind just lately. John traveled to Chile and back over the space of 10 days. We were sure that he would miss the birth of our second grandchild during this ill-timed trip, but he didn't.
While I'm at it, our daughter J just graduated this weekend from Cornell, with a PhD in emergency nutrition, and a minor in epidemiology. Congratulations J!
Meanwhile John and I celebrated our wedding anniversary by cutting and stacking firewood on Saturday and then chowing down on fire-baked pizza at the Bread Board in tiny Falls City, Oregon. This is a pic of their fabulous Garlic Knot bread. If you ever get to Falls City-and why shouldn't that happen-you should definitely go to the Bread Board.
Permit me to dump some photos:
This is a detail of an antique farming device, a rake for hay.
Oak bark. Do you see a face?
A dead tree, also sculptural.
A tiny cabin.
Inside the cabin, looking out the window. John called it a "writer's cabin."
Aside from a vineyard, Tyee has hazelnut trees, which create a dense and magical shade.

Whew. May the next couple of weeks be...normal?
