That’s all I have to say…. sort of. My oh my have we been in the soup lately. I don’t know when we had a day off recently. I mean… a day off. No work, no play away from our house, nothing but relaxin’ at the abode. I can’t remember. That’s bad. I was sittingContinue reading “Freakin’ Busy”
I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer. My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music. It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips. ~Violette Leduc, Mad in Pursuit “Burning cathedral of the summer”… she ain’t kiddin’. Seriously though… love this quote. Here are some other summerContinue reading “Uh… Yeah”
Camp, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Our home away from home for a few days. Peaceful. Tranquil. Relaxing. I don’t have to say any more than that.
The Claw, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Interesting and strange trees about camp.
All Who Enter Here, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The site of the wedding last week. A really lovely little spot in Sellwood.
I know this VIDEO is viral all over the web now, but I just happened to see it this morning and thought… hmmm… Mary… Martin… get on those dancin’ shoes!! Seriously though… this is great. If this video doesn’t make you feel good, I don’t know what will. Congrats to J&K.
Straw, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. These little beauties are a favorite around our place.
Watering, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This is our latest project, nearly complete. We fenced in the back of our house, added another layer or four to the wall (depending on the section), put down stepping stones, filled in with montana rainbow rock, put in some pots with, on this side of the deck, perennials, andContinue reading “Watering”
Ground Cover, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The ground cover at our house is really lovely right now. Gorgeous in fact.
You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you. – Frederick Buechner
Lindisfarne, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Another random post from our trip to the United Kingdom in May. This is Lindisfarne… on the Holy Island.
Window To?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. … the soul?
Splash of Orange, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I also took this one as we walked back to the truck from the fair. Loved the bright orange in this. Nature is fantastic.
Pickets, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. As we walked back to the truck from the street fair I took a couple of shots. This being one of those.
Mississippi Avenue, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The Mississippi Avenue Street Fair is quite the deal nowadays. Who knew. We’d actually never been, and let me tell you… loads of people. It was pretty cool actually. Good food, decent vendors with all sorts of goods and art for sale. We ended up buying three fairly largeContinue reading “Mississippi Avenue”
Weston, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here he is… the handsome boy looking intently at Karen’s slice of pizza hoping for a bite. He ended up with a couple of pieces of sauceless crust. As did the little girl. What can we say… we’re suckers for the looks they give us.
A Cool Treat On A Warm Day, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Nothing quite hits the spot on a warm day like shaved ice. Mississippi Pizza was offering shaved iced out front of the shop yesterday during the street fair. Yum. This was Brian’s selection. Cool eh? Uh… pun intended.
… just had to do that. National Blog Posting Month, every month. July’s theme is routine. Thought I’d throw out a mini post about routine. A day in our life, so to speak. Get up at 6:30, take the dogs out, take a shower (or not), get the lunch ready to take to work… meanwhile….Continue reading “NaBloPoMo…”
Well folks, I’m going to do it again. One blog post a day for 30 days starting a couple of days ago… July 6. Not quite the first of the month, but oh well… close enough. I’ll be posting every day, or trying to anyway, until August 6. Let’s see how well I do. TheContinue reading “Post a Day for 30”
