I keep meaning to come back and post, but somehow, living the life keeps getting in the way of reflecting on it. It's a good problem to have, I think.
We've been busy! We're trying a container planting this year:
The children were excited about the potatoes we planted in our recycled buckets.
Watching the flowers bloom in our back yard:
This was a few days ago: the cherry blossoms have exploded like popcorn!
And introducing the baby to the wonders of sun protection:
She looks a bit geisha-like with all that sunscreen!
I'm also working on my new project for (HMMM HMMM), which arrived safely from (XXX) in a box perfectly suited to the little one:
Boy-O & I also celebrated our 4th anniversary (I think that means we're serious about this).
And now it's Easter. I'm a total heathen, but I love holidays -- largely because they are an excuse to make a larger, fancier meal than usual.
Today's dinner will be lamb, marinated in Greek herbs*, with eggplant moussaka and a garlicky rice. I can't wait.
*The herbs came from our very generous neighbors down the street, who gave me practically half their bay tree and rosemary shrub. (Just another reason to love Portland.)
