This is the highway into our little town. As you make that bend, our house is the first one on the left. We rode our bikes up this looooong hill on Saturday morning. Or should I say we rode our bikes and walked a lot up this hill. It was tough, but we made it, and then we took a left at the top of the hill and took the "old highway" back into town, a much easier ride and mostly down hill.
On the old highway, we ran into some deer. See them on the left side of the road? They were running away after hearing and watching us coming. Their baby doe ran to the right and stood like a statue until we passed, but all I got in my photo were the trees.
A lovely manicured lawn.
We rode on into town and rested at a table at the Community Center.
I love our pretty little town!
Even when the heavy smoke rolled in again, it has a certain beauty.
I made a big pot of Veggie-Beef Soup yesterday.
It sure was good and hit the spot.
I slept on the couch starting just before noon so it was a soup kind of day yesterday. I'm not sure what I did, but I wrenched a muscle in my back and right side...at least I think that's what it is. So I've been sidelined ever since it showed up Sunday morning. We did get a long, early-morning walk in through the empty streets with Fletch and Sammi before it came over me. It's still with me this morning. I'm loading up on Tylenol and hoping it fades away quickly. I've no time for such nagging nonsense, dammit! I don't even know how I did it.
Hope y'all have a wonderful week. I may not post for a few days if this back thing doesn't go away. Not much to post about laying on the couch! Maybe I'll get some crocheting in and maybe not. We have a busy week coming up. Trips to town to apply for our "enhanced" driver's licenses so we can go into Canada. We're looking forward to getting those since it's a much shorter trip to go to the nearest town there for groceries and things (about 20 miles instead of 40). Neither one of us has ever been to Canada. It's so weird that we live only 10 miles from British Columbia! Anyway, I got off-track. We're also having the propane heater stove installed this week and are getting a new, bigger propane tank installed. It seems like there's something else I'm forgetting that we're doing this week too. Hmm. Anyway...
