Weekend in Pictures

A weekend without a fence is quite a trip! You see wayyyy more of your neighbor's back yard than you ever wish, but as I write this, the posts are going up and a much sturdier, awesome fence will be in its place shortly!

A weekend without a fence is a trip! The old “Sanford n Son” one, as I called it, was dying so Friday they came by and tore it down. You see way more of your neighbor’s backyard than you wish while waiting for the posts to set, but as I write this, the slats are going up for a much sturdier, prettier fence!

But it was a beautiful sunny weekend and so I biked over to Mississippi and found this pretty bracelet from pdXchange who sells fair trade

It was a beautiful sunny weekend, so a bike ride over to Mississippi meant I found this pretty bracelet at pdXchange, a fair trade boutique with lots of other beautiful goodies!

And something for the fella as well - with our Supportlandia points, we snagged him a free t-shirt at one of his favorite places, The Rebuilding Center.

Lunch outside in the sunshine at Meesen Thai and the fantastic Yum Woon Sen salad with glass noodles, shrimp, romaine and more...delish...

Enjoyed a lazy lunch outside in the sunshine at Meesen Thai and had my favorite Yum Woon Sen salad with glass noodles, shrimp, peanuts, ground pork, chili, romaine and lime juice…delish! (photo source)

And oh my, made the mistake of starting to watch House of Cards, which then of course destroyed hours upon hours of the weekend (as of course it became a marathon). Dang that's an addictive show!!

Arugula is coming up in the pots like gangbusters!

Arugula is coming up in a pots like gangbusters! I’ve also got butterhead, spinach, and romaine growing, and prefer to do these all in pots which the slugs never seem to find 🙂

And as I finish, the fence is up and done! Pretty pretty!! It's cedar, so it will look even cooler when it weathers to that nice gray. SUCH a relief to have this project done so efficiently as well by the guys at Cascade Fence & Deck!

Wheee! The backyard fence is completed! I chose horizontal slats to make it a bit more modern – it was the same price so kinda fun. And it’s cedar, so it will look even better when it weathers to that nice gray. Great job to have this done so efficiently by Cascade Fence & Deck! Funny how doing these projects highlights how much ELSE needs to be done, ya know? Excited for tomato season!

Lilacs just getting ready to bloom...I adore their scent!!!

And after much ado, peas are growing nicely. The heavy rains did something to a lot of them as they came up rather sporadically, with major gaps, so I sowed a bunch more in hopes they'll fill in as I lovvvvve shell peas :)

Peas are growing nicely 🙂 The heavy rains last month drowned many of them as they came up rather sporadically, with major gaps, so I sowed a bunch more in hopes they’ll fill in as I *love* shell peas – and it amazes me how many darn plants you need to freeze a sufficient amount for winter!
