I hope you are enjoying a pleasant Sunday. We're having a couple of cooler days and they are so welcome. A good rain would also be very welcome but so far none is in the forecast.
We had a nice walk this morning. Didn't see much except for the usual ducks and geese and this heron. It was early and few people were out making the walk extra peaceful.
I finished reading this book based on the life of a woman pioneer who moved from city life in Oregon to the wilds of Northern British Columbia. Her husband convinced her to go "just for one winter" but she fell in love with the North and spent her life with him on a homestead there. I enjoyed this book and I appreciated all the old photos she includes.
This book is from our local library and is also autobiographical. I'm two-thirds of the way through and have to make myself put it down and get some work done. Mary MacLeod writes about her years as a nurse on a remote Hebridean island in the 1970's. She describes so many strange and challenging situations she finds herself coping with.
I managed to use the last of our box of pears to make pear/strawberry jam, a combination I never tried before but it's quite tasty. Before the jam I used some of the pears to make Crisps in ramekins (just the right size for individual servings).
So that's what's been happening here in the past few days. I'd love to know what you're doing these last days of August.
Thanks for coming by, G.M.
