We’ve taken our usual sojourn some 2300 miles from Illinois to Oregon this summer. We do this every year, as you probably know if you’ve been following the blog for some time.
This year our schedule has let us be more relaxed, more able to just enjoy hanging out at the farm and spending time with my mom and my bro.
I’ve seen friends and other family, and hope to see more before we go. We have some things planned, not many, and are looking forward to doing those thing, to seeing those people.
All that aside, the weather this summer in Oregon has been fantastic. It’s been everything we always hope it will be. Most times it doesn’t disappoint, though last year it ended up being hotter here for much of the time we were here than it was in Illinois during that same time. Go figure. We leave to get away from the heat and humidity (OK, also to spend time with friends and family) and it didn’t deliver last year. This year though, it’s been spectacular. Pretty much the best weather we could hope for.
The journey so far hasn’t been without incident. A couple of stressful moments with Weston (he does tend to get himself into trouble now and then) and a bit of a back issue for me, but seriously, it’s been splendid so far.
Oregon my Oregon, I do love you so.
