A Patchwork Bush
Olga and I walked back to the cemetery yesterday morning so I could photograph this crazy bush that I saw the day before. Doesn't it look like a patchwork quilt?
The extra outing meant that Olga got three walks yesterday, which left her...
Dave and I, meanwhile, went to get celebratory end-of-summer massages. Woo hoo! My massage wasn't entirely pleasant -- the therapist was very firm, and it got a bit painful -- but I felt much better afterwards and I don't have residual soreness today.
In the afternoon I continued reading "The Art of Being Normal," a book that was selected at school as one of our faculty-staff summer reads. It's a novel about transgender teenagers, and it's pretty compelling.
Finally, last night, Dave and I finished off some documentaries that have been stacking up on our TV recorder -- one about grizzly bear attacks in Glacier National Park in 1967, one about the growth of Christianity under Roman emperor Constantine, and one about the death of King Tut. Which immediately sent me to YouTube to find this video. Whenever I think of King Tut, that's what comes to mind!
