What's this bright, glowing ball?

Hi there! I'm trying not to do too many posts of just pictures, but it's hard because there really hasn't been too much going on. Let me rack my brain a little and see what I can come up with...

Well, first of all, this picture is the sunset from tonight, just a couple minutes before 11pm. It's been overcast and rainy here for, oh, pretty much the whole time since we've been here, so I was pretty excited this afternoon while I was watching Monday "Night" Football when the sky started to break a little. First I could see a few little patches of blue, then a little more, then by about 6pm the whole sky was clear and there was actually sunlight bouncing in the window and all around. I know, not too exciting, but when it's been a while...what can I say? When I saw the sun startign to go down I ran outside to see the sunset and take some pictures.

You know, outside of the getting used to going to bed with it still being light outside, it's kinda nice to have it stay light so late in the summer up here. There's just so much more....day. As I type this at around 11:15pm, Sara's still out with our neighbors picking blueberries and salmonberries. I forced her to take my camera (the less unwieldy, more pocket-friendly of our two), so hopefully she'll return with some nice pictures as well to share.

Let's see, what else? Loki's been continuing to terrorize Bailey, of course. We were over there earlier tonight to play Settlers (yes Aaron/Eric/whoever's reading this, I actually learned to play Settlers, and I think it's something I could become addicted to...so beware), and the two of them were going at it non-stop for the majority of the time. Dispite panting within an inch of his life, drinking 2 or 3 bowls of water, being bloodied and slobbered, Loki just refuses to leave poor Bailey alone. It's really quite something.

School starts this week for Sara, which is cool. I know she's excited to get to work and meet all of her kids for the year. Well, outside of the ones we already know from their knocking 5 times a day wanting to visit or play with the dog. Something tells me you'll be hearing more about a certain boy named Billy before the year is done...

Ok, I think I'm starting to ramble a little too much for tonight, but remind me to tell you a little about Loki's swimming adventures, not to mention some rediculous tundra mosquitos. I think I've had more bug bites in the last week and a half than I did the rest of the whole summer!
