The wildfires in Northern California have sent a ton of smoke our way this week. While talking to my uncle this week, I found myself unable to explain adequately how weird the light has been as a result. Fortunately, my habit of taking multiple pictures of every flower I manage to grow means that I have a couple of photos that capture it.
School is underway here at Caterpickles Central. On the first day back to school, Canelo joined The Thirteen-Year-Old for lunch to hear all about it.
My birthday looked pretty different this year due to shelter-in-place, but I still loved every minute of it.
There are as many opinions on when and how to reopen schools as there are people in the discussion. How can parents parse all of this competing information to figure out the least imperfect option for their families when it comes to sending their kids to school this fall?
My sunflowers looked basically done, so I decided to harvest 5 of the 7 flowers this morning. I may have been a bit hasty.
Happy 4th of July!
When I planted this sunflower I had no idea it would end up growing to be this tall.
My husband spotted this little piece of public art, thoughtfully updated for the pandemic while biking about town this past weekend.
Somebody’s been eating my lettuce and it wasn’t me. Whodunnit? It probably wasn’t the Lesser Goldfinch or the gopher, and if it was the rabbit, he didn’t act alone. Which brings us to the squirrel.
