Lunch by the River

Ken and I have had our heads to the grindstone with our art this week. Yesterday I packed us a lunch and we went to sit by the river. Listening to the rushing water is so soothing. It helps calm the inner madness.

Lots of folks were out enjoying the river including this family of dogs and their master. Ken wanted to be the guy fishing.

Today it was chilly, windy and cloudy. I had to wear a jacket when I went out. But, now it is getting warmer. The wind has died down and the sun is out. I think it is getting close to eighty degrees.

It seems as if we only had a couple of weeks of summer this year. Can you believe today is the last day of July?

Not a Bad Shot

Ken and I spent the morning working on the insert for his new flute music CD, Remembrance.

He needed a new photo of himself and this is what I got. Not bad if I do say so myself.

If all goes well we should have the CD's back from the duplicator by the middle of August. The music is awesome! I'll give you the whole scoop when it is complete.

The days are pretty hot here. It has been in the 90's almost everyday this week. Without air conditioning it is not very pleasant. Thank goodness it cools down to the forties and fifties at night.

Deer In Velvet

This little guy was close up and personal this week as I traveled to the ranch. The deer in velvet are truly something to behold. Four of them crossed my path the same evening as I traveled back home.

We have had several thunder and heavy rain storms these past few days. It is very unusual weather for here. Today it is finally warm. What a blessing. It feels good to see the sun.

Trout Rising

Summer is our busy time here in Ennis. The fourth of July celebrations at home and in our neighboring town of Virginia City are attended by people from all over the United States. It is quite the event.

I planned to post pictures of the parade that day but my work plans changed at the last minute. So, instead of parade photos Ken joined me during my break and camera in hand captured this fabulous image of a trout feeding.

It was a delightful and peaceful day.
