So I’m not supposed to bitch about the rainy weather because my Kootenay friends were shovelling in May. Thank goddess for date 7 Uhaul! I’m so glad I moved back to the coast but seriously? 3 weeks of solid rain and the dark? Too much. We even scored a month away to Hawaii this winter, missing some of the dark season…… but I just about snapped last week.
So… Amos got off his chaise and insisted we deal with our cabin fever.
I rubber booted and skirted up and we headed down to the beach…. in the pouring rain. Soak your underwear wet. There we were.. my glasses were so salty I could barely see out of them and I tripped over a sunbleached, empty bag of Famous Amos Cookies. And not a meter away, an eagle feather. I found three feathers during those three weeks. And each time, I gasp. Our plate cupboard seems the only safe storage from the cats. And the cookie package was FULL of maggots! In the 2 minutes it took to put the package on the counter to photograph it, maggots covered my counter. But I digress. It was a fantastic time for eagle feathers. I’m glad the eagles have returned….AND THE SUN.

I like this.
