We continue to physically distance ourselves, especially since Oregon has had a surge in coronavirus cases. Playing more pickleball at home and less at the public court. 😕
We picked Hood strawberries with Sharon and Larry at Bushue's Family Farm...delicious.
We've (mostly Randy) kept busy with motorhome repairs, maintenance and cleaning: "rebuilt" the toilet, replaced the air system's air dryer, drained and cleaned the hot water heater, replaced basement heater thermostat, rodent control, washed and waxed our home and shampooed the carpets.
I've been baking a lot of cookies, muffins and beer bread (so much easier than the sourdough I managed to kill). I also spent a couple of afternoons sewing more face masks for us and family.
Yesterday we took the kayak to the Columbia Slough. It was an adventure in suburban paddling as we passed through industrial areas, under freeways and past the floating homeless. Much of it was beautiful with ducks, herons and turtles but it was disheartening to see the amount of trash along parts of our route.
We continue to have brief visits and "care package" drop offs with family.
As always stay safe and healthy. 😷❤️Read more
