And then, the wildfire in Oregon near where my parents live is still ongoing, not very contained, and, as wildfires are, unpredictable. While they haven't had to evacuate, they are close to the level one boundary and it's still a huge concern, and another thing I've been worrying about. The unease that began with hurricane Harvey three weeks ago has continued, thanks to the other disasters. I just want things to calm down and for all my people to be safe and sound - that's not too much to ask, is it? As a result of all of this, I've been super distracted, discombobulated, and have a hard time focusing - I'm usually pretty good at getting things done, but not this week.
Anyway, I don't have a lot to say today, but I do have some adorable dog pictures to show you, and that's always a calming thing, right? What's funny is that they're not even my dog! But Paco is currently in the cone of shame thanks to nonstop chewing on his right front paw, so he's not looking particularly adorable at the moment - he said "no picturez, pleez" so I'll abide by his wishes.
First up is this picture sent to me while I was in Santa Fe and missing our Saturday run - afterward, when everyone was cooling down on the driveway, Cary came out with four-day-old Logan, and his devoted dog-brother:
They said Koda would not take his eyes off of Logan - isn't that just the sweetest thing?!
Next up is a picture of Audie, who belongs to my brother and his wife. Her brother was taking care of Audie while we were in Santa Fe, and she had all sorts of adventures, including a trip to a hardware store where she was treated like royalty:
They gave her a store bandana and the clerk is currently offering her a dog cookie! I love her blurry wagging tail - life is good for a spotted dog, yes it is.
OK, not a dog, but the best. Just the best:
We are back to warm morning temps and high humidity, yay! Not really yay. But it is what it is. We'll be running tomorrow, and I'll be back on Monday with the rest of my Santa Fe recap.
Have a great weekend!
