People, don't sweat the small stuff. It's all small stuff....
I left the meeting early because the second speaker was talking about something I really wasn't interested in learning. Actually, I had kind of 'restless legs,' but i'm not complaining. As soon as I got to the parking lot I got a text from my neighbors with a photo of the rainbows they could see from their water view. I could see the rainbows from the parking lot. They were amazing. With only my iPhone with me I headed to Jamestown Beach. I took several photos there and then as I headed towards home, the sky turned a gold color, the likes that I had never seen before. I headed to Port Williams Beach. When I arrived the rainbows were spectacular. The guys I parked next to were almost giddy. They told me that 15 minutes earlier the rainbows came across the water and shone directly into their car. They had never seen anything like that in their lives. They were ecstatic. It was an amazing sight. An amazing night.
My neighbors are calling me "The Rainbow Chaser." I kind of like it. Everything happens for a purpose. I'm sure of it. I left the meeting early because I was meant to see this spectacular spectacle of nature. As I watched the rainbows mirror their reflection across the water, I looked up above, giving a nod and a wink to my folks. I knew they both were there with me. I had no doubt.
Speaking of photography, I am thinking about taking the leap....for a new camera. My camera is from 2009. Electronics have come a long way since back then. Thinking of driving to Silverdale tomorrow to look at the Canon T6s and the Canon D80. I know the D80 is the better camera, but the Rebels are so light. I want to "feel" the difference. I just bought a tripod. I have never used one. LOL Some photographer I am :) I am enjoying the photography club and my photography college class starts in a few weeks. Time to step up my game.
The wildflowers at the George Washington Inn are just insane right now along with their lavender. Most of my wildflowers are on their way out, but their's are still spectacular. This is an unretouched photo of what it looks like :)
What a wonderful week with my son and his new "rehomed" Australian cattle Dog (ACD), Maxine. She went by cargo from Missouri to Atlanta to Portland where Dustin picked her up. She just turned 5 mos. She was well socialized and pretty much bomb proof for her age. It was nice that they could hang for a week with my pack. They all enjoyed hiking together. Mine weren't real keen on sharing their home though. Maxine took it all in stride. She got a few nips, but it didn't seem to phase her in true ACD style. Plus, she got to meet sheep. It was a great week.
What's happening on the home fronts? Not a whole hell of a lot. Still hoping for an offer on the modular home in Shelton as a "take it as it." sale. We had one offer, but that fell through. The Green Valley house is still in it's second Escrow. Wayne has been working like a dog to repair all of the items the inspector listed as needing to be done. The well was tested and no where near the 3 gal/min that LA County wants it to produce. We have 2 wells and have never had to haul water in, but they aren't happy with what the big well is producing. So now, can we make a deal, will the lenders go for it? All remains to be seen. Ugh. What will be, will be. Wayne is doing a fabulous job with all of the details. Thank God.
Other than missing sheepdog trialling, all is well. Thee weather is beautiful and I'm her so grateful to be living here. Making the most of it :0) Happy summer to you all.
