Cigar in the backyard. Due to the on and off light rain I was back and forth between the yard and the garage.

Athena in the backyard at 1:05 p.m. 
Eclipse was supposed to peak around 1:05 p.m. our time. I z.ipped home for lunch with the dual purpose of eating and also taking Athena out for a walk. I remember the eclipse from back in 1979. I was in class at school when it occurred. Most of our teachers didn't take us outside  although I learned after school that some of the science classes had gone out to observe with simple viewers of two sheets of paper, one with a hole punched in it, use to "look" at the eclipse over shoulders. I remember it getting darker outside for the one from 1979. For this one it seemed to stay quite light despite the fact we had about 75% coverage although who knows what time has done to the memory of the last one. It was 38 years ago.

July Cigars In the Yard

We've had an absolutely gorgeous July and by that I mean warm, but not hot, and manageable humidity.

Garden Fairy

I was in Bayfield, Wisconsin today at a little store called Roxanne's where I found this garden fairy. I probably should have bought her. She would have fit right in.

My Indoor Plants

Leaving on an 11 day vacation today. Worried about my house plants. I asked Deb if she'd water them if I set them outside. She agreed!

Seeing lots of irises around the neighborhood. These were near Warren's house.
