Monday in the Garden

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Mondays find me with just one baby on hand, a day for me and Zella. More often than not, Mondays this summer have been rainy and cool. Not exactly days you want to spend out doors. Not if you’re me anyway.
Today, glorious today, is hot and sunny. Just the day to be outside in the garden, picking blueberries and soaking up the sun.

blues and greens
I love how we can harvest blueberries for at least a month during the summer. Seeing all the large, ripe blues is exciting, but what about all the potential in the greens? I can just about taste it.

Thank you for sitting and playing happily. And for wearing this ridiculous hat.

Crazy pink poppy.

I love this stuff.

Dinner and an Update

Monday, July 20th, 2009

You might have guessed that I’m taking a little time off from blogging and you would be entirely correct. Maybe it’s the big move, maybe it’s that it’s finally summer around these parts but I’ve needed to be away from the computer for a while. You understand, right? I mean, aren’t you reading this at the beach?
But don’t fret, I’ll still be checking in every now with little updates such as this:

Neil and I have recently had a Return to Date Night, starring: Dinner and a Movie! This makes us very happy. Here’s us at Miyake (no website but don’t let that stop you from going. it’s good. real good.) just before I dug in to the best sushi I’ve ever had (and an hour or so before we wasted the rest of our night on Bruno).

Date Night Sushi Excitement!

Side note(s): Ugh. Look at my hair! Need cut. Need color. Need help! Funny to see that Cassie is going through a similar struggle, though she’s at least pointed in the right direction. Go short, Cass! (and then help me find my cut.)

And um, since when did date night call for a polo shirt covered up by a sweatshirt? Sad. So sad.
