We keep getting our eggs stolen. This time three dozen. It is too much work and expense for people just to take them.
There was a deer at our Boles Aero trailer later that morning though.
This morning Tom repaired a tiny hole in the fence that Ryeleigh managed to get out of while I did the animal chores. Tom worked on the ancient plumbing in our house while I picked plums and attempted to battle the weeds in the garden. The weeds grew while were on our trip and then I hadn’t been able to weed due to my hand injuries.
We came in for lunch, and I had a salad made from our garden (like every day). We are intermittently getting our newspaper, the Skagit Valley Herald. They stopped delivery service as no one is willing to deliver it for the tiny amount of money they pay for the route. So now we are attempting to get it mailed to our P.O. Box. It has been hit and miss, but we did get yesterday’s. And I was rewarded with this cartoon. We enjoy reading the paper with our lunch.
In the afternoon I tried to sleep off a night shift at the hospital while Tom worked on my old motorcycle (are you noticing a theme called old?). He was able to wrestle the exhaust off to get the back tire off. In the process he managed to break a muffler clamp. It can be tricky getting parts for a 1975 Honda CB550.
After I got up from my nap, he showed me the differences between the old and new tires. I will be thankful for the tread.
While he was trying to get the back tire off and went to get a tool from the garage, he noticed a large bird in the driveway. He initially thought it was our peacock but then soon realized it was an immature bald eagle.
It may be a fledgling from the nest out back. Steve didn’t notice it, but Ryeleigh did and manage to scare it away.
Pretty exciting farm news, huh?
We are also watching the Schneider Springs Fire, somewhat near my mother’s family cabin. It is anxiety provoking.
We are having our pork chops with our peaches for a farm dinner tonight. Ryeleigh is currently stretched out as much as a beagle can next to me on the couch, after a long day of escaping and chasing eagles.
I am hoping to finally watch Summer of Soul on Hulu tonight, but there is also the fire update at 6:30. And tomorrow morning we are going to the Skagit County Fair!
