My very good friends Jory and Emily got married. It was quite lovely once it quit raining.
I sang for them. I was super stressed about it.
And what better way to remember than with some art commemorating their first dance?
This is the first year I’ve tried gardening. And it’s gone surprisingly well! Usually plants fall victim to my very-opposite-of-green thumb, but I’m proud! I did have an unfortunate cauliflower incident which has turned me off to the vegetable FOR LIFE. I won’t go into the disgusting details, but here’s some of the harvest so far….
Lots ‘o tomatoes and banana peppers.
Some frightening beets.
Speaking of things that are growing fast, my Baby Friend Forever is walking now. Sigh.
And this just made me smile.
For Labor Day, we’ve started this tradition of getting out on a boat together. The weather was a total downer, so many of the photos give us a rather homeless quality. But we still had a nice time.
Couldn’t think of a more appropriate ending to our nautical adventure.
We went on a little journey into southern Ohio territory this past weekend. On the way we picked up the newest member of my ukulele family. Jodi was the one who inspired me to start playing and it was this instrument that made me swoon. So happy to have it. We then continued on to our friend’s place in Athens and made some wonderful new canine friends.
The first tomato from my garden. Eaten immediately after this was taken. MMMMMM.
Hanging out with my Best Friend and Baby Friend Foeva.
Working on a new piece. Finally.
Valleytown rocked our favorite doublewide dive.
MMMMMM Peach Beach….
The winning team of the 3rd Annual Bicycle Scavenger Hunt. Though the tattoo wasn’t the clue that made us win, I’m really glad I got to sit in the AC the whole time.*
*That’s a lie. I missed the whole thing. Oh well….next year.
This was on the Halloween rack at Goodwill. WHAT?! I will wear this in daily life!
But I wonder if I should hack it. Maybe cut the sleeves off……widen the neckline…..
What do you think?
Pietje was very distressed to hear the news about Steve Jobs stepping down from Apple.
Here we go….
