It's been raining a lot and I don't think I've ever seen so much water here.
The vines are all bare and have now taken on a different kind of beauty.
Some colorful new scribbles on this door.
I wish they would quit leaving these gates open. It's very tempting to go in and explore.
There's a hole in a fence I never noticed before that leads to a rather large area one could probably fish from much more safely than the rocky spot where people often are.
Never noticed how cool this rock is.
I've photographed this bike rack before, but never from this angle.

We had lunch at our neighborhood hangout and the new bartender was lots of fun. She's definitely pouring as strongly as everyone else. We stopped by the nearby burger place on the way home for milkshakes, but I never got around to having mine, so there's a frozen root beer shake waiting for me in the freezer. Our new neighbor was working outside when we got home, so Garrett introduced himself. I was feeling a bit too tipsy for that so I kept walking and got the mail. Once we were home, Garrett decided to listen to music upstairs and I watched two of my favorite movies, Heathers and License to Drive.
This morning was a typical lovely morning at Langus. I was a little worried at first because it was gloomy, but it got really beautiful, really fast.
Anyone know what this is? My cousin asked me on Facebook and I have no idea.
I saw an eagle from closer than ever before!
And of course saw a heron, leaving.

I might have gone a little further today, but it started raining, then snowing, and that snow was blowing fast enough to hurt my eyes.
We had lunch with Bev and Dennis today at NYP Bar and Grill. The food there is great, but it was very crowded and loud. It was a relief to leave. We played poker for a couple of hours after that. Here's the obligatory picture of Bella.
And here's a pin I ordered recently that arrived a couple of days ago. I don't really wear pins, but I figured I should order one now before Zima returns to the shelves and the pins possibly stop getting made. The holes in my ears are pretty big, I suppose I could wear it as an earring.
I have one last day of vacation tomorrow and I really wanted to go hiking somewhere further out, but it's been raining a lot and all those trails will be very muddy. It's really frustrating to spend over an hour in the car only to arrive to poor conditions. So before I head to bed, I'll look around on the map for inspiration. Garrett suggested Edmonds. I might see a movie, and I'll probably go out to lunch.
