If any of you still don't know what this is (really, people?), check it out here. Chad will stop hosting after this year, but hopefully it will still keep going.
I ran some errands in the morning - and realized that I'd forgotten my camera. So close your eyes and imagine a nice chilly but sunny Saturday morning, a pretty clear view of the mountains, running around the cool Capitol Hill neighborhood, and cherry trees starting to bloom. Seriously.
Now, for the real pictures:
Valentine's Day flowers I ordered for Scott delivered today - they smell right purty.
Scott has taken some really great photographs, and had a few framed. I want to hang these up somewhere in the house:
And then the winds picked up - a LOT - and the rain came pouring down. The Apocalypse, I'm sure. Mark my words.
I made dinner reservations for Valentine's Day online, at a downtown restaurant we haven't been to before (our regular favorite restaurant closed last month, to reopen in a new undisclosed location at some point). I called to confirm our reservation ... and it doesn't exist. Hmm. Here is their website as I was looking for their phone number. Notice the blank, deathly monitor sitting behind my new laptop. For some reason my laptop suddenly stopped recognizing it. All in all this is a tragic picture.
The usually elusive and hard-to-photograph Kasha. She's about 16 years old.
Still pouring rain. These are some tropical plants - anthurium and hibiscus - that spend the winter in our guest room. They can't wait to get back out near the pond in a couple of months.
Your host, Matterdays. I'm contemplating dinner.
Perhaps some jasmine rice ...
... some broccoli ...
... some avocado ...
... and some chicken. Half-eaten dinner while watching "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion" - good fluff for a Saturday night.
So, there it is. Happy 12!
