In Boise

It was pretty warm coming across eastern Oregon yesterday through Burns (appropriately named for the 100 degree temps!), but we had AC, I read aloud, we listened to lectures on The American Mind and the miles flew by. We stopped in Burns for a picnic out of the food box, and it was shady and ok. Today has been a fairly quiet day - I slept late, had breakfast at about 11 a.m. (in the backyard, shady patio), we talked with Suzine and Christian for a bit and then decided to go to lunch at a Thai Restaurant (Christian had not had breakfast), so I had just a bowl of Miso soup there (not the all-you-can-eat buffet), and that was just right.

 Then we did some errands at The Dragonfly (great selection of greeting cards) and at the Boise Coop, went to visit Margie to see her new music room (forgot to take pics), mailed a card, came back and rested, and now it is time for supper. You need a day like that now and then.

   Ella and Fritz love the backyard too: 

Christian grilled some chicken and potatoes, and we had corn on the cob and tofu -  very nice meal on the patio:

And then we walked to the river where Ella and Fritz got a chance to play in the water:

The dogs were incredibly stimulated by the water and they were really frisky on the walk home and especially in the yard after we returned. They are the equivalent  of 70 and 80 year-old humans, but they sure weren't acting it. Eventually they calmed down. 

Tomorrow we leave for Bartlett, IL. Google says it is 1640 miles and a 24-hour drive. That is a lot. We'll hope to be there Sunday night.
