Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

An Afternoon Thunderstorm

This afternoon I was entertained by a rumbling thunderstorm that slowly meandered along the river.  I enjoyed the pinging sounds the drops made on our skylights while the thunder grumbled in the distance.  It was perfect weather to curl up with a book, but I had other things to accomplish.  You know the song "whistle while you work"?  Well, I was humming something similar but it was more like "ping a ping pinging" while I worked, makes me laugh as I recall it!

This morning, I watched a school of dolphin and was able to capture a few action shots as they approached, passed by and then had a feeding frenzy in the distance (I cropped them so you could see the dolphin better)

Yesterday, I took this picture a heron on a piling....handsome, stately, proud.   I really like this picture and had to share it!    

A little update on Liam, Jessi took him to his doctor today, who said his airway was still a little red and inflamed, prescribed some medicine and said that he would be just fine.  Little trooper!  I miss them so much already and can't wait until I see them again...the next time, it will be just Liam and I, 1:1, woo hoo!

I am looking forward to getting back to the cabin...just a little more to take care of around here before I hit the road again.  Mountain Man has told me I need to get back because the beans keep growing and the leaves are changing!  Funny...what ever happened to "I miss you honey"?  Ha ha...I know he does, I miss him too...but it's all about the beans and leaves, LOL! 

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
