"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Serene Saturday

Gorgeous day, with a heady breeze blowing down the Bay.

Here's the tub of flowers that came with me yesterday.

One of my many arrangements: Perennial sweetpeas and other stuff. The position of the boat house flag this morning indicates the direction of the wind.

Unlike now, yesterday the lake surface was calm and flat. See how clear that water is!

The photo is deceiving. You might assume that it's shallow water because the rocks are so visible. And yet it's several feet deep at the edge of our main dock. And at the end of the extended portion, where the steps are, it's over my head. (I'm 5' 5"--exactly.)

Lola, relaxing by the water. She ought to be wearing a pair of groovy wraparound shades.

When the Chap returns from the dump and the supermarket, we're taking our walk. If any of the dogs goes swimming, I'll post photos later.
