April 30th 2014

Today was the most glorious spring day! It was in the 80s and the sky was bright and beautiful.
Where was I? I was inside sorting my socks....

This is pretty amazing that I found pairs of socks.... I am trying to see what I have before we move so I actually matched my socks.... weird....

Joel and I cleaned the kitchen too:

I found my FitBit in one of the loads of laundry I did today. It has now been washed three times and dried once...after a battery change it smiled at me! (It had been missing for almost two weeks!... maybe I should do laundry more often....)

Joel got new sheets from my mom for his birthday. We put them on the bed today so we can start packing up the sheets we use and getting rid of the ones we don't.

We did enjoy a bit of the weather. We went grocery shopping. We also got neat-o new electric toothbrushes!

Now I guess we will spend some time relaxing killing undead things in video games!
Have a great night!

I feel much better today! It is probably because I took this awesome photo on the way home! It came out even better then I thought!

I also saw this bee. You can see the pollen grains!

The aphids expanded their territory to a new flower.

These are the tiniest, prettiest, blue flowers I have ever seen!

At the risk  of sounding uninformed.... I had no idea that Maple trees had flowers!

This tulip was spending the last of its bloom time basking in the sun.

It was a lovely walk home!

Have a great night everyone!

I got sick last night, in the middle of the night. Yuck. I even left work early today.....

I did see some pretty flowers today:

And some aphids:

And some Easter grass:

Have a good night!!

We had some brunch today at Louisa's .

This was the most AMAZING french toast I think I have ever had in my life!

I saw this today!

This is the view from m my friend Alyson's new house's roof top porch!

But my neighborhood will always amaze me......
Yes, that is a tire and a wheel just sitting there.... I have no idea... there was nothing else near it.... not car nothing.... just the that.....

Have a great night!

These seeds are all over the parking lot right now!

I put this large piece of cellophane in my garbage can.... guess who thought it should be her new toy?

Opal let me take some close-ups of her today... with minimal fuss!

 (Artemis flew back to his cage.... we still have lots of work to do... )

Hope you have a good night!!

April 25th 2014

Today turned into a beautiful sunny day. I of course was inside at work.

But those working days are numbered, at least here in Seattle. I think I met the girl who is going to take over for me at the clinic. She will be coming in on Tuesday to spend some time and see if she is right for the job, or the job is right for her. I am not exactly sure when my last day will be though.

This is a little unnerving.... it is weird to meet your potential replacement.... even though I initiated the change, it still feels strange... I feel strange about the whole idea of chucking everything in Seattle and moving to Portland.  It is what I want to do but, part of me wants to stay here, where I know I have a job and a place to live...... I will have these things in Portland too, but as far as starting up my own photography business,

I am not sure what I am doing....

I will figure it out, plus I have all kinds of friends and family who will support me!

Feel free to pick which one you are.
Okay... enough of me going on......

Here is a photo of a Daleck going to exterminate the first gold foil crane I ever folded.
That is poor Crane Zero. He is in my 1000 cranes blog.

And I figured out how to make some neat tokens to use when we play Pathfinder.

But maybe I will hide under a blanket for a little bit, and gather all my courage to set out on a new incredible adventure!

Honestly, I think having all this time to think about it is just making me crazy!

April 24th 2014

Not gonna lie.... my photography eye is tired.....

Here is what I saw today:

This is a crazy orchid I bought for work.

After dinner we cleaned out the bedroom closet. We did pretty well. We found things to trash and things to give away and things to keep.

I also found a mountian of laundry that had hidden itself in the closet.....

And the kitchen is a mess too.....

Sometimes I feel when I get one thing accomplished.... there are five more that still need to be done....

oh well.... It is good that I have a little friend to help!

April 23rd 2014

We went to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival today! It felt really good to get outside in an new place and take photos.

Are you ready for all the tulips?

We first went to Tulip Town. We thought it was a bit over done for tourists, but it was neat to see the big field of tulips.

There is some one giving Katie the evil eye in the left had corner.

It is this little lego guy! He was just chillin' in the tulips.


Joel found this Polaroid on the ground.

Katie and I found a little run down shed at Tulip Town.

Next we checked out RoozenGaarde. I did take all these photos but RoozenGaarde would like me to tell you that these photos are “Courtesy of  Washington Bulb Co., Inc.” or “Courtesy of RoozenGaarde (”

Super yummy Kettle Corn!!!

Not a Tulip... I know....

We also saw some neat things in Mount Vernon.

We had a really great day!!
Hope everyone has a good night!!
