September 6, 2022
Eight days in this week due to the Monday holiday; I didn’t want to split up the long weekend.
Monday, August 29: I took no photos, just some screenshots, like this one of a very colorful parrot I did in the Happy Color app.
Tuesday, August 30: Pulled these fake nails out to put on. I got these because I liked the accent nails with the stripes on them, though I’m less enamored with the combination of those stripes on the milky white background with either the matte pale blue or the iridescent bright white. They were half off, though, so I went for it.
Wednesday, August 31: My friend Denise made a detour on her cross country drive home to come see me on my mountain. Unfortunately wildfire smoke (the worst we’ve had this year, for which I am grateful) made the views less photogenic than they could have been, but we still were able to ride the lift to the top and have lunch and see what we could see.
Thursday, September 1: Walked down to the village with Mr. K after dinner and saw workers putting in overtime to get the walkway from the parking lot done in time for the end of summer festival starting the next day.
Friday, September 2: Kicked off fall fest with two hard ciders and listening to two live bands with Mr. K’s sister Kathy and her husband. (Mr. K had another engagement so missed this first day of festival.)
Saturday, September 3: The day started off smoky but the festival proceeded as usual until something unusual happened: a windstorm with a threat of lightning blew in and the band playing had to stop, then the crew rushed in to lower the canopy over the stage and remove the canvas before the whole thing blew down the mountain. Eventually the storm passed without any significant rain, and the last band of the day was able to take the now canvas- and light-less stage.
Sunday, September 4: Our guests left for their next stop, so Mr. K and I headed to the village by ourselves, did some festival stuff, then took the lift to the top and looked for huckleberries. The wind the day before had blow the smoke away from the immediate area, so we had better views than in recent days, but still could see smoke from the fires on the horizon.
Monday, September 5: Had one last cider and meal from a food truck at the festival and took one last ride up the lift for summer season. The view was the best it had been all weekend.
