ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept. 18

This may have been the windiest day yet. Knowing that the wind was predicted, my son took down the umbrella that fits into an opening on the outdoor table. I thought that it was snowing because pine needles and little particles from the pine trees were falling all over the place . The wind knocked some ready to be picked fruit , right off the trees. My power went out,  but it was hours before I realized this. I learned that the lights which were on during this wind were run by a battery . I didn't know that. Now I will have to learn about batteries.. My deck is strewn with leaves and needles. I was going to go to Sequim for some errands, but my DiL advised against traveling. I drive through ,usually, beautiful wooded forest type roads and she thought that there may be tree limbs down. But I was concerned about swaying on the highway. This reminds me of hurricane type weather and here, it is just considered windy. Dixie is happy. She offers no excuses as to why she is sleeping all day. Yesterday was hard for her. I took her to the Vet again. Once I used up her eye meds, the problem with her dry , infected eyes came back and the unrelated itching. So now, she has more drops, which I will have to give her for the rest of her life, and an allergy shot. She is sleeping off the trauma of the Vet. This is the kind of day that calls for a nap.I'm next.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
