horizon and islands - update from NJ

horizon and islands, originally uploaded by Vilseskogen.
Friday night post from New Jersey - the boys in the family are watching a hilarious 1980s movie, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, which I tried to watch but gave up on, all the homemade pizza is gone (either eaten or in the fridge for lunch tomorrow), my virus-infected computer might be rescuable (yeah!), and I have been uploading some more photos from the Sweden trip here in the kitchen while listening to the excessive and funny sound effects of the banzai movie.

Here is the ocean, as it looks when you look eastwards toward Finland from the Gävle area in Sweden. Those islands are Swedish, not Finnish :)  I had lunch here with my family, looking out over the ocean and thinking about infinity and space...

Outside the heat is on, it is probably around 25 degrees Celsius still and humid, and the grasshoppers and katydids are still going crazy with their noises. We have caught 7 mice in 48 hours inside our house and there are still many more to catch - that is what happens when you let your inside cats move outside...

Yesterday and the day before we saw migrating dragonflies here at home - there is a species here that migrates like a bird or monarch butterflies.

Mornings are turning cool, finally, and it is time to plant garlic and spinach for harvest next year. It is far to the first frost night, but the owls are howling their noses off at night, especially during the full moon the last couple of nights.
