Twilight bike ride

The Thursday Harbor concert kinda sucked so we left and rode to the outer harbor, past Tifft Nature Preserve, down to the Ship Canal Commons (e:Terry), (e:KeithT) and I met back up with (e:Paul) & (e:Matthew) at the food truck afterparty on Mississippi for some munchies. The sunset was gorgeous and the General Mills plant smelled like Lucky Charms.

This week at home

I was only home Monday night to Wednesday night, but it was an emotional rollercoaster. My community has pulled together to support the fire victims and others affected by the losses, both financially and emotionally. From Sleezy Construction & Barbecue Co.'s chicken (all items donated, all sale proceeds go to the benefit), to a yard sale, bake sale, basketball tourney... my community rocks. I feel very guilty that I'm not there today.

Wendy's kitty Honey snuck in my room to enjoy the sunshine in the window.

Ya know how people say they're going to use the phone book as a booster seat? Kinda silly in Tioga County.

Fire

My friend Patrick, his mom, his brother and his dog lost their house in a fire sunday, along with 3 other families. A little girl died. My community is rushing to support the families - a memorial sunday night that drew 225+ people, a fundraiser sunday with chicken barbecue, 3-on-3 basketball tournament, silent auction, bake sale... Patrick is kinda home based here at wendy's, along with his dog peewee. She's chilling in her two-story mansion.

Ginormous african violet

I don't think I've ever seen this plant bloom. Definitely not a traditional african violet.

Tiny flowers on a plant in the office. (e:Terry) is very good at getting things to grow. Well, except that one plant that's all drooped over.

Camping

I went to my usual memorial day weekend bluegrass party, here are some pix. I didn't take my real camera, I just wanted to be in the moment, although the crappiness of these photos makes me regret that decision.

A little pickin' near the entrance.
image

A and I filled the back of my pickup with stuff - tent, sleeping bags, pillows, air mattress, table, grill, coolers, chairs, clothes... There's a reason my handle is jamnturtl - I wanna take my whole house with me when I travel. :-p
image

I watched the dawn break three days in a row... but before that campfires :-)

Kelly's 40th birthday

Jill threw Kelly a huge surprise 40th birthday party with an '80s theme today (uh. yesterday. got distracted). I know this is a lot of pix, but it's been a while since I've touched my real camera and I had a lot of fun. I thanked Jill for NOT throwing such a shindig for me - I would have been pissed and very uncomfortable.
