We had fun camping although the weekend sure went by fast. That's Michael and Laura at the campground! Bats came out of the trees at night and that was kind of cool.

Max and Laura have new bikes and I rode Laura's last night. It felt great to be on a bike again! I used to ride a bike everywhere in Eugene.

I am reading Without End by Adam Zagajewski. I am going to read The Ghost Writer by Philip Roth once I get my hands on a copy.

Debbie comes to visit next week! My tomatos have yellow flowers on them.

Where I'll be this weekend

Leaving tomorrow for Timothy Lake! Camping with everyone.

Tomorrow is summer solstice.

I have been running a lot. Writing poems in the early morning.

Yay for summer.

The weekend is winding down and I had a good one.

Max's team lost yesterday, so his season is pretty much over. But they had an 18 win, 3 loss record which is pretty fantastic. We are going to a Mariners game in Seattle in August!

I watched a lot of the O.C. on Saturday night - season one. Laura wasn't feeling well, so we watched several episodes. Sometimes nothing else will do. This is Laura's last week of middle school.

I'm going to start taking the Max train into work more I think and I was thinking, maybe I should get a bike and then I could ride the bike to the Max. Just a thought. But then I read some things about how it's kind of a hassle during rush hour to find a place to put your bike on the Max. Although I still wonder what it would be like to have a bike again.

I ran 8 miles yesterday. I pulled a lot of weedy grass in my backyard today. I cleaned my office. Worked on poems.

I am reading Strangers by Taichi Yamada. It's a Japanese novel about a man who gos to his hometown and finds his parents living there. But his parents have been dead for over 20 years. It's kind of spooky and I like it.
