We ended the weekend with some weed pulling at the house. They have somehow taken over all of our flower beds. They must be thwarted. They must be vanquished. They must be… well… pulled. So we started that process in the big bed. And let me tell ya… it’s a process. But damn… our place is looking lovely right now. And again I’ll say… we are lucky. In so many ways.
As to the photo above… you can see Benny’s paw in the shot… we were only missing Weston and Riley’s and it would’ve been perfect. Maybe next time?
Saturday we stayed home, relaxed, surfed the net, read, watched some Seinfeld, and were pretty mellow.
Yesterday we, including Kev and the pups, went to Sauvie Island to just drive around and explore. Kev drove, we had the ipod plugged in, and we made a few stops to wander, take photographs, and just check out various parts of the island. It was gorgeous out. One of those winter days that teases about the approach of Spring and warmer weather. We saw some cool birds, including a Bald Eagle, and found a few really wonderful places for future hikes (when they open in April after the wildlife birding season is over). We’re excited to go back and explore. We also found a great place to put our kayak in the water. I think loads of good times are to be had this coming summer on Sauvie Island.
Today Karen and I wandered around the city a bit doing some errands, having breakfast out (always a lovely thing to do), visiting family, walking the dogs a little, and shopping for baby gifts. So nice. We just went where we felt like going, did what we felt like doing. Wonderful.
This shot, taken yesterday, is from out sojourn around the island. I’m going to post a few shots from the day yesterday. It was just beautiful out.
