The flight in last night was clear. It was night, so we couldn’t see much beyond the lights of cities as we passed them by. The pilot announced Detroit and I thought of Oki. He announced Minneapolis and I thought of Bria. He said we’d be seeing Spokane too, and I thought of Ashkitty.
Adam’s parents gave me a digital camera for my birthday…. it’s awesome. It’s a nice little portable Canon A400. They gave me a 256 mb card for it too, so I can fill it in a day and a half. Okay, it might take me longer than that, but only because I’ll delete as I go.
The cats survived air travel and have come out none the worse for wear. They were awfully quiet when we picked them up last night in the Vancouver airport. If the landing had messed their ears up as much as it did Adam’s and mine, then I wouldn’t be surprised if they were totally deaf at that point. They’ve been wandering around mom’s house this morning, trying to avoid the little dog Keiko. Keiko thinks that they’re a new toy. Dayle has been sitting in a window staring out at the fog all morning.
We’re going to explore around the house today, and maybe walk or bike on the dyke some. Hopefully the fog will life and we’ll be able to see further in the distance, since we haven’t seen a mountain at all yet, besides the one we could see flying in. It was dark and the moon was reflecting off the snow on its peak… it was beautiful, but subtle, and mountains are rarely subtle, if I remember right.
It’s 9:03 but it feels like noon. Freaky.
