Despite the downpour, we didn’t let it rain on our parade..lol! As we headed for Corvallis on Saturday the sky blackened all around us, but by the time we got there it subsided. It was our first visit for this year and local farmer’s had the work of their labor, displayed beautifully.
I really enjoy the healthy atmosphere and observing lots of families out and about together and many furry four-footed friends too. I know what digging in the dirt does for me and I highly recommend it.
In the garden I tend to drop my thoughts here and there. To the flowers I whisper secrets I keep and hopes I breathe. I know they are there to eavesdrop for the angels~ Dodinsky
And old and chill is the wintry blast;
Though the cloudy sky is still cloudier growing, and dead leaves tell that the summer has passed;
My face I hold to the stormy heaven,
My heart is calm as the summer sea,
Glad to receive what my God has given,
Whate’er it be.
When I feel the cold, I can say, “He sends it,”
And His winds blow blessing, I surely know;
For I’ve never a want but that He attends it;
And my heart beats warm, though the winds may blow.

It’s pretty quiet on the home-front. We’ve had sun, clouds and then a few raindrops.
We had to go back to Portland again. We have not learned to have an umbrella in the car with us at all times. We have a few things to learn about life in Oregon. Anyway, I have a few in the car photos to share. We did locate a place to park our car. It was worth the amount we paid to leave it in one place.
