Rain ~ Fingerling Potato Salad ~ Janie ~ Swallows and Blue Birds ~ Assault? ... A Salt! ~ Fawn ~ PINK Day (ugh)

Good 45º sunny, somewhat cloudy morning.

Here is the forecast map.... Sorry Patty Cliff Bill Jeannie... more rain hitting the coast today!

Yesterday was not your 'typical June 22nd' weather. It started sprinkling in the morning, on and off, by afternoon it started coming down in BUCKETS~! All day we had about 1/8" and then in the course of 30 minutes we got twice that!

I even made us a cozy fire in the wood stove! June? Funny.

I made a really good potato salad... used Yukon Gold, red, and purple 'fingerling' potatoes. Cut each in half and boiled them til soft along with some baby carrots. I re-hydrated some mushrooms, added those, and some fresh Italian parsley and artichoke hearts. Then I mixed some pesto sauce with mayonnaise, stirred it in, and voilá !

Today is a special birthday, my friend Janie Alden. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANIE!!! (I miss you girl. You work too much!)

She is quite the leather craftswoman.... check it out:
Husband Dana makes saddles, son Tim makes boots, and Janie makes chaps, purses, sandals, etc.....

The birds in the birdhouses on my porch are busy busy. Lots of chirping going on and many trips bringing food by both moms and dads....

I did have to go into town yesterday to the post office, pharmacy, and market... I wore a new shirt and it got lots of laughs!

Coming back up our road was a doe and her brand new baby fawn. Sorry, poor picture. Only had the little Nikon! That baby was sooooo cute. It kept looking at me and the mom was saying, "COME ON! INTO THE TREES!"

Atlas was happy to see me return. He has attacks of anxiety when he's left alone...

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.
