We needed to do some PR work in Seattle, so I hand delivered the gift to Sara last weekend. (She won the birthday blogging surprise a few posts back.) Can you tell that she loved it? She was so sweet, and thrilled about all the little details. It makes me want to keep on creating…
I was driving in the rain, so the munchkins took the rainy Seattle photo for
me. While killing time in the library there, I found an adorable fish purse that was supposedly at www.MoMa.org, but it was not there any more, nor did it list the artist. I think it's 'da bomb.' If any of you happen to know where to lay your hands on one, I want it.
The garden experiment is doing great. That is, the rabbits and deer are staying out. However, I'm afraid that's because they aren't even being tempted because everything is staying rather um, short.
We have heavy clay and rocky soil, so we brought in 3-way to help it. (3 way is 50% topsoil, 25% compost, and 25% sand.) I'm thinking now that all we really needed was 100% manure, and lots of it. The strawberries love it the most and have produced some berries and are sending suckers out all over the place. Although, the best strawberries are still the ones growing in a Lego container on the patio. Hmm.
Dh is getting ready once again to do humanitarian aid work building houses in Mexico. In preparation, a crew came over to build boxes to hold their tools. They wanted to color code the boxes, so the munchkins and the neighbor kids painted them and then cleaned off the rollers on the lawn. I'm enjoying the abstract quality of their work this week.
We also had to go visit a friend in the hospital who is recovering from cancer. He's doing well and we all enjoyed our visit. As we left town, we stopped off for a quick bite at our absolutely favorite pizza shop. Well, okay, we have two favorites, but both have perfect crusts.
