The Zombies are Coming

My daughter just recently got back from vacation and one of the things she brought back with her, is a fun whirligig. Of course, the next day, I put it up out back and have been enjoying it ever since.

A Visitor for Breakfast

Yesterday morning while I was washing dishes, all of the birds that were feeding in the backyard suddenly disappeared. I was wondering what could have caused them to scatter so quickly so, when I looked out the window, I saw this guy, most likely a Sharp Shinned Hawk, sitting on the fence...

Yeah, if I were a bird, I would have scattered too.

A View from the Dump

A few days ago, I had to go to the Ada County Landfill to properly dispose of some hazardous waste. Every Friday and Saturday from 8:00AM- 5:00PM, you can drive up to the landfill and they will dispose of your hazardous waste (old TV's, computer monitors, paint, oil, car batteries, liquid propane tanks, etc.) The view from up there was incredible, so I thought I would share a few of the photos.

Here's a view of the road leading up to the landfill

Here's a view looking out over the valley. You can notice the smoke from the fires that are burning around our area. Most notably, the Beaver Creek Fire (by Sun Valley)

Just between the power poles, you can barely see downtown Boise. Although it is very smoky in this picture, it was much worse the day before.
