We tried to limit our outdoor activities to the morning and evenings. I have been shooting my bow a lot in the hopes that we get up to Alaska and can go moose hunting this fall.
We also tried to escape the heat by going kayaking and nature hikes. I have been continuing to refine my nature photography skills.

|Of all the pictures I took this is my favorite of the week....
They actually turned out a little better than they appear here for some reason when I attached them to the blog they were a little distorted.
Forrest was fishing while I paddled around and took pictures. He caught a pretty nice Rainbow trout the other day, he wanted his picture taken with it so I paddled over there just in time to get this shot as the fish jumped out of his hand and back into the water!
During the heat of the day we have been working inside on a remodeling project. It is a rather big one that will take several weeks to complete. I am not going to take pictures of our progress but will share before and after pictures when (and if) we get done. One smaller project we got done this week was the installation of a new exterior door downstairs.
Things are starting to open up around Klamath Falls. Hair salons opened with week so Somer and Lily went in for a cut and whatever else women get done with their hair.

Then one day I saw her out in the yard eating something. Forrest and Somer have about 5 acres fenced in to keep the sheep in which is also nice as we can let the dogs wander outside all day too. So I wandered over to see what she was eating and she was going to town on a pile of sheep sh#t like it was a filet mignon! No wonder she is not eating, she is eating Sheep Snacks all day long! I laugh now thinking of all the times she has licked Barb’s face over the past week!
I too have a health issue I have been dealing with. Now, I don’t typically talk about my aches and pains but this one is particularly annoying. For the past two weeks I have had shooting pains from my elbow to the tips of my fingers and there is a spot on my elbow that hurts like hell when I touch it. I am sure it is just a tendon issue that will go away with time but I went onto the Google and see if I could figure out what caused it. After extensive research I was able to find this flow chart which I think pretty much nails down what I have……
I guess there is only one thing left to do, go have a beer!
