Sorry I've been AWOL for a few days! I had to finish school on Friday, get checked out, rush home to do laundry and pack for our trip to the Sierra. We rented a cabin between June Lake and Silver Lake. It's back off the road and there are squirrels and blue jays all around it. I've discovered that they both love the black oil sunflower seeds and peanuts! There is a neighborhood dog who loves to come bounding up the porch steps after them. She has no manners. Her owner came looking for her yesterday and she was out playing with two boys in the cabin below us. This morning, after scaring away the jays and squirrels, she went bounding up the little stream next to the cabin and returned 2 hours later, totally wet! I tried to lead her to her house, but she went running after one of the boys who had a bowl of cheerios! She reminds me of my black lab, Ripley...absolutely carefree and without manners! It was cold and windy here this morning. In fact, Silver Lake had whitecaps! Here are some pics from yesterday. We're heading down to Mammoth to buy another package of fresh corn. Last night, for dinner, we had steak, chicken, baked potatoes, and fresh corn. Everything was delicious! It's nice to be able to sit outdoors and enjoy the evenings up here.
