This is because I don't have anything else terribly exciting to report. Not that I need things to be exciting -- I enjoy peace and quiet very much!
First, yesterday Nicole and I went sketching at Richmond Beach Park in Shoreline. It was foggy in my neighborhood, but brilliantly sunny just a mile away in hers, and as we drove to the park for several miles, it was lovely and clear and we were quite happy -- until we turned down the road to the park only to be met by a fog bank. Brrrrr! We braved it anyway, sitting under a picnic shelter to quickly sketch stuff. We were just about to give up and leave when the sun started breaking through and it warmed up. Whew.
I didn't do anything much there, due to drawing as fast as possible.
Next up, from a week or so ago, the first sign of Spring in my garden -- crocus!
Plus a bonus Anna's Hummingbird in my yard:
On a completely unrelated note, here are some goldeneyes from two recent outings -- two different species. First up, the Common Goldeneye, seen at Magnuson Park:
Secondly, the Barrow's Goldeneye, seen from Golden Gardens Park. Note the white patch on the face -- tear-drop shape in the Barrow's, round in the Common.
Lastly, from back in late January, when Truman had visitors Chloe and Winston for the day:
Today it is overcast and much cooler out, and rain is in the forecast for later today all the way through the weekend. Time to work on indoor projects!
