Success is Still Mine!

July 31, 2009

More food.  I rock, it is official.  And there is way more to come!


Those cherry tomatos went into my mouth as soon as I took that picture with my phone, and the zucchini very quickly got shredded and became a saute with a little onion and buttah.  YUM.

My new garden question.  Should I be worried that my once green cucumbers are turning yellow?

Whatever the answer to that, I still believe: I grew (and am still growing) food,  I win.


Our Usual Morning Conversation

July 30, 2009


Picture us on our way to work/daycare (either in the car, on the bike/trailer, or walking).

Jaxon: *Whiny half-cry*

Me: What’s wrong tater?  Use your words.

J: Mah-mah (Translation: More, more.)  He is usually signing “more” as well.

Me: More what?  What do you need?

J: Ya.

Repeat randomly ad nauseam.

Look at the sign, specifically #3… Am I missing something that gives that sign a different meaning? Your wisdom would be much appreciated…

Catch Up

July 25, 2009

Yes, I suck.  It’s been a long time.  Blah blah blah.  Let’s pretend some excuses are listed here.

Now, time to catch up on what J and I have been up to for the last month and move foward.

J went on his first camping trip with his grandparents and even went on a boat (thus the life jacket)!

J Camping

I got my first pedicure.  Fancy!  (Lyndsay went with me as a guide into this new girly world!  I’m on the left.))


While I was getting my pedicure, I finished knitting my first sock ever!  (Second one is well on the way, just turning the heel.)

First Sock

We enjoyed our newly weeded backyard (yes, it was really bad before) with a picnic.


And we went on a hike!  (Balch creek.  J is standing in the restroom ruins!)

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
