On the very positive side of things, today at dinner I sat at a table in front of a huge picture window and watched elk cavort across an uninhabited island in the bay. Then we went at bought ice cream and I took the dog down to the beach for a run.
After that I took pictures of the flowers in my mother's front yard:
I have no idea what these flowers are. If anybody is desperate to know, just post a comment and I'll ask my mother.
Also, I got a TON of knitting done on the plane today.
