I haven't taken many pictures lately. I would love to get a lense that would allow me to take really close-up pictures of things like spiders or bees or dragonflies. Until that time, this is about the best that I could do. The little bits of white, they are ash stuck on his web. I'm finding it hard to think of interesting things to write about. This Summer kind of sucks. We are stuck inside so much of the time because of the smoke. I feel for the families who are REALLY affected by the fires - those who've been evacuated, those who've lost their homes. I feel guilty that I complain about the annoyance of the smoke, when they are dealing with the actual struggle of the fire. Sarah and I are going to go through our clothes today and find some to donate. She's grown so much, she has quite a bit - I'm already working on a box. Okay, now my publish post box is messing with me - won't allow me to make new paragraphs, which is what I wanted to do with the sentence that starts, "Sarah and I .........." I'm going now. I hope I think of something of some sort of interest to share later.
