Other activities for today include weaving some of Ellie's blanket. I am getting the challenges worked out and it is growing pretty quickly. It is so fuzzy and warm looking that I think it will be tough to hand over to her.
I also spent some time on the CAPC forum websites, imagining my professional life out there waiting quietly for me. I'm getting excited for being done with all of my various poisons and on to regular life again--mid December or so. I still do not know the specific next poison that Dr Hill has planned for me, but will keep you updated when I do.
Other activities for today were a little walk through downtown which was totally gorgeous today--the sun was out, a gentle, fresh breeze was blowing, there were constant clumps of people out walking and enjoying the day (perhaps because there was no school?). I took this nice picture of the dam and this out of focus picture of a crazy bird that was hanging out in the river. There were two and I was not able to get either in focus. This is an example of the kind of thing the iphone camera is not that great at. I could carry around my point and shoot in addition to my iphone for just such situations.
|All the overflow is coming out the sides; the dam wall is dry. There is strong consideration being given to getting rid of the dam as it serves no purpose any more.|
|Our photogenic river, taken from the String Bridge, looking upstream.|
|The weird bird. It's quite thick looking with a white chest and brown other parts and a waterfowl kind of beak.|
I hope for myself for tomorrow a day of recovery. I hope for all the folks who are submerged or still damp, a quick recovery. For you, I hope a peaceful day with recovery if needed.
