A change in the weather

Blueberries
Lily took this picture of me yesterday when we went over to my friend Judy's house to pick blueberries. We were going to a U-Pick-Em place when Judy mentioned that she had so many ripe blueberries that she needed some help keeping up with them. So we both happily filled large containers full before we headed back home. I can see why it's a hard job: we were hot and tired within a short while, and although we took lots of them, there were many more left,  with green ones showing Judy will be swimming in blueberries for quite a while yet.

Last night a stiff breeze blew into our area and scoured out the sky. When I saw the sunrise this morning, with lots of puffy clouds, I could actually see my shadow when the sun emerged from behind a cloud.  For the last week and a half, we've been inundated with smoke and haze from the BC forest fires, as well as above average temperatures. Well, now we have returned to our regularly scheduled blue skies!

Lily and I went on our own walk this morning and didn't join the ladies. We were both not in the mood for hills and walked to Fairhaven and back, stopping there for a wonderful breakfast before returning to Bellingham. The cool weather and clear skies were such a treat. A fantastic start to the weekend.

  8. We have a few blueberry bushes in the front yard, but not much harvest this year--everything is so weird. And now we are having October weather in August, so the tomatoes aren't ripening either. Strange strange days...

  13. Now that is a healthy pan of yummy. Those are the kinds of friends to have--those with surplus harvest.
    So glad you are finally getting some clean air. Enjoy.

  14. Awwww, I'd gladly give my two ovaries for some cool weather and clear skies! Jealous, I am.
    And blueberries? She'll be swimming in them for some time? I'm gonna be on her doorstep in no time.

    A quiet walk in the morning and topping it off with a breakfast...a perfect day ahead.

  15. Oh my gosh! You are so lucky! I love blueberries, but the ones I've been seeing at the market are not in great condition. Yours are definitely fresh picked. Sigh...
