It might be a little quiet here on my blog for a couple of weeks. I work for the director of special education in a nearby school district and the last few weeks of school are chock full of IEP meetings, wrapping up items from this year, and trying to plan ahead for the fall. I don't even realize how busy I am until about 8:00 in the evening when the Sprout is in bed, and I have time to make something or blog about making something. That's when I realize that I am absolutely exhausted.
It's a good time to take a deep breath and remember some of my favorite bits of nature found in the Columbia River Gorge:
--water falling (duh)
--basalt rock columns
--trees covered in fuzzy mosses
--maidenhair ferns with their purple-black spines
--the thousands of shades of misty, mossy greens
I love this place!
