    Love that many of my 'daily challenges' have become a normal part of my life, and will continue beyond the two weeks of the challenge.

    One more attempt at posting a photo of the fish ladder yesterday.

    • Jeanne Poirier 5/16/2019 9:13 PM
      I was there today - a photo would be difficult - but WOW the fish were big & beautiful.  What a struggle they have for a life!

    • Joyce Stevens 5/16/2019 6:20 AM
      Still didn't work. Patty helped me post a photo on the 6th, but it's not working now. Well, I was able to see some fish coming through yesterday.

  • Joyce Stevens 5/15/2019 7:47 PM
    Some good sized salmon coming through on the fish ladder at Rocky Reach Dam today.  

    • Joyce Stevens 5/15/2019 7:49 PM
      Photo didn't show up.  Darn it all. A bonus was getting to see MANY Big Horn Sheep across the highway after viewing the fish. :-)

    Busy week, but am enjoying this challenge. :-)

    Oh my, the challenge is moving quickly.  I need to get busy with my remaining two 'one time' challenges. :-)

    Challenging with no animal products at breakfast time!  :-)


    • Joyce Stevens 5/11/2019 2:07 PM
      Lori, that is exactly what I have been doing, but today I was up and out by 5:00 am for Lions Breakfast, so didn't have time for peanut butter on toast until I got home seven hours later.  This is what I normally use yogurt for, quick protein / fruit smoothie. Only another week + to go. :-)

    • Lori Nitchals 5/11/2019 1:55 PM
      I bet! 
      Hmmm...what would I do if that was my challenge? Maybe peanut butter on toast and/or muesli with water, and fresh fruit?
