Hiding in Plain Sight

WHERE have you been? Oh, maybe it's been me? Yes I have been MIA for quite a while now. Several times I've sat down to write, then closed the laptop. At first I blamed it on the Pandemic. What is there to write about when you are sitting on the couch all day?


And yet, I never forgot about my blog and snapped pictures of interesting things during my days. I think I just needed some time. I will not be able to catch you up - that would just be too hard. So I'm starting fresh.


I have kept up my running and dog walking. I have really enjoyed getting out on the beach. The parking or parks are closed, but the actual beach is open.



On one of my beach walks, I noticed this little waterfall.


On one run, a huge group of sandpipers had taken the place of the usual seagulls.


I decided one day to keep my eyes open for some sea glass. The only thing I found was colorful sea plastic. Ugh.


Oh wait.....I did find some local seaglass:



And you know those great people who throw their masks and gloves on the ground? Well this is special....a bag of dog poo.

Someone bagged the poop and then left the bag. And no, no one was around that could pick it back up.



I've registered for several 'virtual' races, since all races are cancelled for the next several months. I got my 'swag' bag for the Cinco de Miler race that I ran. Very exciting!



Meanwhile, back home after my run:


When you live alone, you have to wear these socks upside down.


Finished this 1,000 piece puzzle. Only about 1,000 hours.....



Finn has been actively working on his casting.



Madeline has been actively just being cute.


Finn is very gentle and likes to explain things to 'baby Madeline'.


Not much riding going on but I do go visit Durango out in the field.



After I sit down, he will walk over to see what the heck I'm doing out there.



Not a bad view



When sitting by the door is too subtle....


I bought them new harnesses and they look quite spiffy, don't you think? Spiffy? Who says that?

Gus seems a bit focused.


Learning to walk to together politely. It's a start.


I thought this was a good picture of them until a friend mentioned that Jake's leash (the gray one) appears to be coming straight out of his butt......



Jake's preferred way to travel is with the sunroof wide open.




An amazing sight. I was so excited I was able to catch this! I'm a regular nature photographer!



Are you ready for some cuteness? Ok.

First, a Mayday celebration.



Next, Madeline's opinion of posing for her 1 month photo:




Tennis balls are for sissies.





For the past 48 hours, this has been happening:


The dogs don't go for walks.


And I don't run.

I think if you watch this cat, you can actually see her sigh.......



So let me know how you are getting through these times. Please be safe no matter what.


One step at a time,


Anne
