In the last couple of weeks my toaster, Kitchen-Aid stand mixer and the daughter's laptop all bit the dust. Last night the septic system decided it's ready to be pumped.
Okay, okay. Of course, we are thrilled for her and even for ourselves as her intended is a fabulous young man.....but emotions are running high and did I mention we are...well....stressed?
Deep breath. Sigh. In a house full of chronically ill people, a big event seems even bigger.
I just realized that the viewing tower is shaped like a lighthouse when I took this picture. I have been there many times and never realized it before. Duh!
It was a nice day, though the mosquitoes were fierce in the shadows. One fun moment....We were basically the only people around but then a young couple with two little girls came up the steps and in view of the battery. With a sudden intake of breath and a quick rush forward, one little girl said.....it's a CASTLE!!!!!!!
Pretty close, I'd say.
We had a close encounter with a bald eagle who swooped out of the sky to snatch up a caught-and-released trout from about 15 feet in front of us! Beautiful, but definitely startling!
On that note I shall sign off and go...eat...Jello.
