Wind, dust, and alpenglow

I looked out the window this evening, grabbed the camera, and ran.

Had to pause to say hi to a neighbor, though.


 The wind blew hard all day today. There was a lot of dust, so what looks like soft focus is actually stuff in the air. The light over Strawberry was a deep brownish gold.


I love the way evening light shows the shapes of the mountains. 


The clouds were wonderful Art Deco shapes to the west.


The alpenglow was as intense as I've ever seen it.


I was not welcomed by this pair.


 As the colors darkened toward night, I took one last look southwestward to the low bluffs of John Day and the tall shape of Aldrich Mountain.

A sunny, windless day!

Such days are rare here.
Our vet says she loves to see dogs with green feet.
In dandelion season, we have a yellow-footed dog!
Remember, early pollinators need dandelions!
We'll cut them when they start to seed.

Eowyn was very happy.

A photogenic kitty morning

Yes, Toby is that big! He weighs more than seven pounds now.
His eyes are still a deep orange-brown.

He's a stretch kitty! Those are 13" tiles.

In fact, he's as long as Rufus, but he weighs half as much.

This picture was taken the day he turned 9 months old. 
(All other pictures in this post were taken today.)

Arwen was rolling around on the couch being cute.

Look at me, I'm upside down!

Now I'm sideways!

Sophie just rested in her favorite spot.

Daisy, as usual, felt a cowdog's deep responsibility for everyone's health and well-being.
Don't worry, we went outside later and threw the chew toy.

Just your average morning

Jeeves has a box.

It's a great vantage point for the Toby Floor Show...

...which is also the Toby Couch Show.


Daisy wants to watch, too.

As Toby pursues the jingle ball into remote areas by the bookcases,
Daisy and Jeeves curl up for a nap.
Yes, Jeeves is that big.

Across the room, Arwen observes from above.
