I've done lots of knitting lately since most of our usual activities have been cancelled. The saddest victim was my volunteering at the UW hospital as the whole Arts in Healing program has been cancelled. And I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye.😢

Where does the time go? We are fine, but it seems like the days slip by without me posting or reading any blogs. Our days seem to be busy with lots of walks (even in the rain!) and lots of Christmas knitting on my part. Hope all is well with each of you in this crazy time! And now I'm noticing lots of changes on Blogger.
It's not always clear weather here though. Here's the view from another recent walk! The city in the distance is downtown Seattle.
On a recent walk in the nearby woods, we were amazed to see all these mushrooms. This tree was covered with them!
Two finished projects!

Last week we finally got out of the house, and it wasn't for grocery shopping! We hopped in our car and went to Deception Pass which is a beautiful spot not far from here. It was a beautiful day, and we even did a bit of hiking!
We stopped at a wayside on our way and discovered an amazing tree. This sign explains it's history.
Once this tree was once 200 feet tall with a trunk that is still 20 feet in diameter! It was chopped down sometime in the 1800's, and all that's left now is this stump. Thankfully someone preserved it!
We hiked down to this beach. It's a great hike; it is, however, uphill all the way back!
There are lots of interesting old trees all along the trail.
We made it down to the beach, and here I am resting up for the trek back uphill. As you can see there are lots of trees that have washed up on the beach. It was great to get back out into the woods!

Fifty-five years ago today we started our life of love and adventure together.

This week we had a younger deer in our yard! He snacked on a few plants and then went out front to look around.

And during the last part of July, I finished a couple more knitting projects and am now waiting for some yard to arrive so I can finish another pair of booties. (I lost at yarn chicken!) This was the first time I ever knit a lovey.

Recently I finished this prayer shawl for the mom/wife of two choir members. She is fighting an aggressive form of brain cancer, and a number of us choir folk have been providing food for the family as they are consumed every day with lots of doctor appointments. It's very sad.
On a happier note, another choir member and his wife welcomed their first child, so I made her some booties. I have several other projects in progress....actually a whole lot!
This beautiful guy paid a surprise visit to our backyard recently! He looked around a bit and chomped a little on the dogwood before strolling on his way somewhere else.
This tiny baby bunny visited us, too. Now if we could only teach it to just eat the grass and skip everything else!
