Day 298 A Lone Oak

Sunday, October 25 – Spend today with daughter, Billi, cutting out leaves with the Revolution for her classroom and watching over her kitty, Scout, who is in her final hours, I am afraid. When we make that committment to love a pet, it is so hard to let them go when the time comes. I haven’t heard how little Faith is doing. I sure have said many prayers for healing for her today. It pour rain this afternoon in Great Falls, but nothing out here when we got home this evening. It poured overnight, so we have so much mud in the corral. Tristan and Lily aren’t coming tonight after all. Nick has to work again tomorrow. I will miss seeing them. Grandpon was going to take the little guy fishing in the morning. Here is another shot from the Silverton country side. We were waiting to see if there was going to be a colorful sunset and nothing materialized. We took some shots of this lone oak and also some dandelion shots. This is such a gorgeous place. I could not believe all the apple trees still full of fruit. There are green houses everywhere with what looked like tomato plants inside. There are also lots of red peppers in the fields that are being picked now. Jenn and I stopped on the way home at a market along the interstate that was selling fruit and stocked up. I am so enjoying the nectarines that I bought. They had a pumpkin field full of kids choosing their favorites. There was also a corn maze and lots of other fun things for families. I brought home some Walla Walla sweet onions and potatoes for Walter to enjoy.

    The lone oak tree does indeed look lonely! This looks like beautiful country side. So sorry to hear the Billi’s cat is in her last stages of life. Hopefully little Faith will pull through and can help heal broken hearts.

    I love true Walla Walla sweet onions. YUM

    So sorry to hear that Lily and Tristan won’t be coming this weekend.

    Hey, I think we stopped at this same fruit stand when we came back from Seattle in Aug.
