Back From Sunriver!

We had a great time in Sunriver! Michael won the Moore Cup this year!

The weather was great. Rode bikes a lot and went to the pool. Played Pictionairy last night with everyone. Alex and Max won. Laura and Natalie saw a porcupine.

One thing I love about vacation is being able to read a book in four days. I read America America by Ethan Canin this weekend.  I started it Thursday night before we left and finished it this afternoon in the car on the way home. It's so great to be able to read a book that fast.

She's Back!

Laura returned last night from Illinois! Michael and I  sat in the backyard and watched her plane fly in. Then we hopped in the car and drove to the airport to pick her up - that's how close we live to the airport!

I dreamt last night we had Christopher Hitchens over for dinner.

Max's team lost yesterday, so baseball is over.

We are going camping at Timothy Lake this weekend.

I am going to clean my office this week and maybe make some jam. It's supposed to get hot!

I ran the Sauvie Island Half Marathon on the 4th of July. I set a PR. Yay me.

I have a prose poem is in the new issue of Quick Fiction.

I watched Thelma and Louise yesterday.  We also watched Invictus last night, which had lots and lots of rugby.

I finished Raven Stole the Moon (it was okay) and I'm reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog now - I started it a few months ago.
