Not a whole lot

Cedar Creek Hatchery
Hebo, OR

Let's see..
not a whole lot to report since last week.

My Mom & Dad made it home safely after their week-long visit here.
We had a good time seeing them, and the weather was perfect the whole time.

George's birthday was Sunday, so we drove to Salem to check it out,
and find a good place for lunch to celebrate.
George chose Olive Garden, as it is his favorite.
My parents gave him a MasterCard gift card, and he's busy buying things online that he wants~!

Work here at the hatchery has been the same..
mowing, weeding, etc.
George and I worked on a decorative pond, trimming the bushes and making it look nice.
I need to take a picture of the new look!

Yesterday we took a walk around the property again, from home, around the ponds, and back.
It was a total of 3/4 of a mile.
The Runkeeper app that I have on my phone now has a map feature that shows your walk.
Cool! I should keep that on every day that I work..I'm sure I walk enough around here!

The weather has been perfect here for weeks..
sunny, warm, and nice!
Today, however it is raining, and it wasn't in the forecast :-(

I'm still working on things at my old job..but it may be coming to an end soon..
looks like we might have a potential buyer.
We've also heard from FEMA on our flooded house..
looks like we'll have our offer by week's end!

Tomorrow I have a recheck on my eye. Still have the floater issue..but I guess I'll have to live with it.
While we're in Lincoln City, it is time for a pedicure :-)

George and I have scheduled a trip to Astoria on our next nice day off..
probably next week. 
Anxious to explore that area too!

Stay tuned! 


  1. Good luck on the FEMA offer. I know you'll be glad to have that all done.
    Sounds like your weather is a bit nicer than most of the country where it is just HOT. Enjoy!

  2. Amazing that you find time for a pedicure no matter how busy you are. Priorities, I guess? ;c)

    We're pulling for you that FEMA does right by you. I'm sure you'd like to put that all behind you.

  3. Nice app we like to use that also, we have taken a couple hikes that ended up very different than posted distances.
    Gd luck with that FEMA, it will be so nice to have that behind ya.

  4. I'll have to look into that phone app but it's probably an iphone app and I have a droid. :-(( Sounds like things are coming together with work ending and the FEMA settlment. Both will be very nice for you I'm sure.
