Still More Quiet

Not sure why we are feeling so quiet, but there was that AT&T-imposed silence when our telephone and DSL went completely dead for more than 48 hours (Thursday-Saturday). Such a crazy disconnectedness descended on our household.
It's been hot too, really hot. Like over 90 degrees everyday for a week. We're lucky because it's fairly arid and dry here. No humidity, so 90+ only feels like 90+ but still, it's been HOT HOT HOT. Then, on Sunday the temps were noticeably cooler. Refreshing. Lovely. Almost like an early fall. Next week the high temps are supposed to be in the 70s. No way... we have a garden full of food to grow before fall. Who knows anymore what the weather is capable of? Not us. We just watch and act accordingly.
We've been out hiking everyday too. Lots of dragonflies and butterflies everywhere. Wildflowers are blooming in the weedy brush and quail families hiding in and among it all.
Sunday morning this beautiful buck scared the cat. The cat scared a jack rabbit. I scared a young doe. All before 7:00 am. That's life in our world. Roger is feeling quite well, and the cat is getting old. We have become a family of few words.

  1. Great photos, especially the buck. No news is good news, it seems.

  2. Lovely photos, robin. Quiet is okay. Few words are spoken here too, although I do try to remember to talk to the dogs a bit to keep in practice. Have been watching the weather all over the west to begin getting a feel for how it could be when I travel through this autumn. Seems unpredictable. Not sure how things will work out.

  3. When you have great visuals, who needs words. That first one of the web looks like sound in motion. Cool.
    So glad Roger is still doing great. Enjoy that cool 90. We stayed at 104 most of the day.

  5. At rest in the shade, listening, watching and at peace.

  6. I had three hours of quiet today when the crew went out for a quick canoe/kayak trip. Normally I would rather be on the river, but today I just wanted a little alone time. Delish.

  7. I never realize how quiet my husband and I are until we have guests. I find myself staying up VERY late so I can find the quiet again. So happy Roger is still doing well. I sincerely hope your temperatures moderate soon. We're hoping for a slight respite later this week. Our temperatures are not quite as high as yours, but our humidity makes the misery index really high.
