Saturday we went in search of SUNSHINE! We’ve been socked in for days (weeks) in the valley. Grey days with little temperature change makes for depressing winters. We drove to the coast range and up Mary’s Peak. From the upper parking, situated at around 4,ooo feet, you can look out over the valley to all the mountains. Mt. St Helens (in Washington State), Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, the Three Sisters, and Bachelor were all visible. Mt. Hood is in the image above complete with our long afternoon shadows. It’s fun to see all the lower peaks sticking up out of the fog. Islands among a sea of fog.
One thing I did manage this weekend was to find frame materials for more luminarias. Hooray! The current one in progress only requires extra edging to finish the frames. Almost complete!
On Sunday afternoon I sat down and started gluing. While waiting for things to set I started thinking about possible valentine ideas and played on the back of an envelope. It’s always fun to practice writing backwards!
One idea down and more to come. Hopefully I’ll get back to work on the bird in hand print today.
