All Work and Play

I spent my morning and afternoon in the garden/backyard! I weeded, harvested, transplanted, and trimmed the bushes. I filled the yard waste bucket for Thursday! I harvested all the carrots, potatoes, chives, and
Basil. So excited to make pesto and a veggie tray for the kids tomorrow. After all my hard work, we spent a couple hours over at Uncle Mike's pool for relaxation!!

Sumner Days

Car show and Danny Vernon in Sumner proved to be very fun, noisy, and super hot. I saw my favorite Mrs Vicki from work there, and we ran across my Uncle Mike who I haven't seen in awhile so that was a pleasant surprise to the day. My dad wants to buy my Uncle's car but I think my mom might put a bounty on his head if he even comes close to thinking it could be his! Funny watching those mom would never follow through with her threats but my dad seems to think she would! As it should be!!

Danny was a nice change of music from what pipes in the car speakers lately. Our 15 year old thinks she's introducing us to new music, but The Beastie Boys and Blue Suede have been around forever! Because of Mark I can actually talk music with her. "Sure I know the Beastie Boys and Salt n Pepper!" Can't wait for our family to watch Linkin Park together in September!

We caught lunch at Pick Quick and the home for some R and R!

Renaissance Times

Mark purchased us tickets to the Renaissance Fair in Sumner Saturday. We had a great time watching jousting, seeing the Queen of England, browsing all the goods in the market place, watching a man make cider, bread making in a stone over, watching an old time Punch and Judy puppet show, throwing axes, and peeking into the lifestyle of this time period. Next time we go we will let the kids dress up! So much fun. After Valerie was begging for some money (apparently she thought she would by another snake) so Mark took her up on it and asked me out on a date. We went to see The Giver, and then to Applebee's for some hearty grog and snackies! Awesome day...thanks hon!

First off in my stretch. The girls and I went to the airport to pick up my brother and his girlfriend Kat. We got there a little early so we went to the Tyee Golf course parking lot and picked blackberries while we watched the airplanes fly right over our heads! Great times...

Myself. Caution, Contains Swearing

I don't like who Ive become. I know I can change! I'm not going to lie, I can do it, but it's hard work. Work that I've fucking done before. Work that now has to be redone! Who does that, and why? Why redo something that is so hard to do the first time? Sorry for swearing but it is really fitting for this subject. Shit, fuck, and all those other words are perfect for the way this body makes me feel! I've seen the damage this causes, I'm a medical professional for goodness sake (held my tongue on that one). Here's some photos that I like of MYSELF. None recent, except for my periwinkle nails!!!!
