If we were having coffee/tea, I would welcome you and let you select what your drink and treat from the selection. Our temperate has dropped in the high 80° Fahrenheit.  This fairly normal for this time of year. Let’s sit out on the patio as we can watch The activity in the parking area.



If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you that not much happened last week. We went out for breakfast a couple of times. I didn’t get my haircut. Last night a grass fire near the interstate highway burnt a home and almost destroy two others. It is so dry out, it doesn’t take much for fire to start. I have been doing a lot of reading especially when I can’t Sleep at night. This year has gone fast. It is hard to believe August is almost over.


If we were having coffee/tea, I would share with you that Monday is the day of the eclipse. The forecast is for 90°. and clear out. We both have viewing glasses courtesy of our library. There will be a viewing party on the back side of the building where there is a good view of sun. We used to live in Central Oregon and I find it hard to hard to believe the number of people, the media is reporting there this weekend.



Not to many again this week, I  have been reading ARC’s for September. There are a number of books where cats and dogs are feature. All very good so far. I haven’t decided which one I like the best.

    such beautiful vistas once again. It is amazing that people have traveled from all over to see the eclipse. I intend to stay indoors, it makes me too nervous!

    • I am lucky as we won’t have to travel. We would see totality here in the Meridian area. I think it will be about 96% if I remember correctly. Idaho state Fair open today and there is a special party at the grounds including a raffle for the to of the Ferris wheel. People are crazy!

    You always post the most interesting/beautiful photos! Also, I’m a little jealous that you’ll get to see the eclipse. I’ll be teaching kiddos during the best time to see it in my area. I can’t wait to see the photos you’ll post of that! (I’m assuming you’ll do that…) Thanks for sharing!

    • Not sure about the photos as you need special material to take of the sun. We don’t have that. Thanks for the comment on the photos. I am surprised that your school is not setting up something for the children to see what is happening. I am sure all the news media will over do it as usual.

    Your photos are beautiful as always. The part for the eclipse sounds like a good time. You are pretty close to the epicenter of activity, but have your private space right at home…well done, Betty Louise. You rule. Thanks for the coffee.
