Quote for the holidays

“Nothing is permanent in this wicked world – not even our troubles.” – Charlie Chaplin

This quote reminds me that life provides us with all kinds of challenges, but nothing we can’t overcome.
The world doesn’t care that you have problems. It keeps spinning and spinning, oblivious to our daily troubles. When I think of the enormity of the universe my troubles don’t seem so bad.

100 books in one year!

I wanted to see how many books I read in a year. So I decided to challenge myself to read at least 100 books this year. Here is a list of the books I have read so far starting this month:

B is for Beer, by Tom Robbins

The boys

Let me introduce you to Pee Wee and Herman. They are my hooded rat pals!
Here they are in June when I first got them and they were still fairly small.

Here they are cuddling in their new home. Pee Wee is the brown one on the left and Herman is the black one on the right.

Here are some photos of the Santa Fe House or “Waking Sky” as my family calls it. Isn’t it beautiful?

“The poetry of the earth is never dead.”

I thought this was a fitting quote to go with these photos of fungi. They are a Northwest coast fungi we came across in Fall. Enjoy!

Here is a hedgehog mushroom we found.
