I guess when the box says, "soft black" they really mean, "black black"......

I have black black hair now, ha! I think I will get used to it, it's just quite shocking right now!

Urban Gardening, Happy Earth Day! and more!

Have you ever seen this done before? I remembered I used to see it in Hawaii all the time... restaurants, homes, patios... it's supposed to keep the flies from coming into your space. I just put it up today, and had the door open all day... so far, no flies. I hope this works all summer!
I loooovvvvvee my new patio, so I couldn't wait to get some veggies, herbs and plants! Here we have basil, rosemary and cilantro. Probably my three favorite herbs to cook with. I planted them in a large pot with some other flowers.New tomato plant....yummm
I wanted to buy a ton of these (I forget what they're called) but they're expensive! Who knew grass would cost so much. I really want something to cover up the railing on the lower patio that faces the back stairs. Long grass would be ideal to create some privacy. I think I may drive out to Sauvie Island and transplant some. Is that bad? I don't think it will disrupt the ground too much out there because it's basically flat grassland. I will probably chicken out though.

Wanda and Tilda. This is what our cats did during the 80 degree weather. They are so much more mellow when it's hot. In fact, we are too!
I spent most of Sunday out in the sun, enjoying some margaritas at our work with my friend Molly. I love the sunshine!
Julia and I at breakfast. Screen Door. The best!
hehehe.... we look so serious! Chris and I enjoying our patio. SO NICE.
Val, Molly and I at Julia's bday party!

Seattle Trip!

This past weekend, The Ax (pictured so lovingly below) played at the Fun House in dowtown, so the four of us (Adam, Martha, Chris, me) made our way up there on Sunday just in time to enjoy all of that great sunshine. We walked around Pike St., ate some good Mexican food with tasty margaritas, hungout with Seattle friends at the show, and had a blast in our 24 hr hot tub!!! We were crazy! My camera died, so this is all I got...
