I woke up early this morning to a quiet house. The air felt still and heavy.
Wind had come up overnight and brought smoke in from Idaho. Across the valley, I could barely make out the Ruby Mountains.

Mike had gone to the mountains and the girls slept quietly upstairs. I took a minute to straighten up the kitchen and found this self portrait on the table;
and this note on the counter from Mike;

Well played, Mike.
