You might have seen the news about the hundreds of wildfires burning in California. Here in the urban East Bay we haven't been able to see any of the actual fires, but we've certainly seen and smelled the smoke! This was sunset on Thursday -- just orange haze. The fog has come in big-time today and it's been windy, but it still looks like smoke.Since I've been findng it so frustrating to photograph the birds that move around constantly, I decided to look for some "prey" that would sit still for the camera. How convenient to find this snail on my dining room window today! Look how crisp the photo is! I took a picture of the other side, too... but decided you probably didn't want to really look closely at the underside of a snail. Yech.
I have been doing a very little bit of sewing -- here's a little hint of my Summer quilt for the 4 seasons swap -- it's going to be a Japanese garden.
Finally, I have to report that despite the fact that I flagrantly displayed my unmentionables a few days ago, I did not receive a single bit of spam. And when I check the "referral" list on sitemeter this morning, there were no rude google searches showing up at all! As I told Sweet P, I think the fact that they were "old lady" style and made of cotton probably saved me!
