|« Summer||Discovering new old foods! »|
We are now at the apex of our summer daylight hours. There was only a 4 second increase today over yesterday. We’ll be within a few seconds of this daylight length for a couple days and then daylight will begin decreasing rapidly until December. I guess the shape of the earth has something to do with the rates of increase and decrease. Those changes vary from just a few seconds to six or seven minutes in a day’s time. Sunrise today was at 4:34 am and sunset will be at 11:39 pm. Tomorrow will be the same length except for the number of seconds. We will have 19 hours, 5 minutes and 8 seconds of daylight today! I sure do love it!!!
A couple grizzlies were in the neighborhood by the bike trail a few days ago. Passersby noticed the grizzlies, stopped and boarded a family and another walker on the trail before they wandered into the grizzlies paths. They are still looking for easy meals and young animals. They may have just been chased off by their momma to be on their own and were checking out new territories.
The sun is warm today and there’s not a cloud in the sky. There is just a slight breeze and the temperature is 67 degrees. That’s much nicer than we had for that arts and music festival on Saturday. Early in the day we had cool temperatures and heavy rain, then more of a shower. As the rain left, the mosquitoes invaded. Then a breeze began that chased the mosquitoes away. By late afternoon it had become partly sunny and evening was clear skies and a light breeze. At 9 pm I was beginning to worry about getting a sunburn, but the sun went behind some trees by10 pm so I didn’t stay exposed for too long. The weather kept most people away for most of the day.
We’ll have a nice dinner tonight. I saw that my husband has some salmon fillets thawed. He’ll most likely bake them. I’ll steam some broccoli and carrots to serve with brown rice.
Till next time…
