(pic taken sitting on the edge of the bathtub ..in shock & awe.) :)
here are a few moments on our september worth noting. the most important one coming the morning of my birthday, when we found out we were pregnant! after 2 & 1/2 years of counting down the days & months, our family of 3 is in sight! i will always treasure the memory of that poignant morning.
in other september happenings..
van gross & the gypsies played their last “gig” to a packed out garage at the storied “gypsy manor.” the pics are blurry.. but perfectly capture the energy of that night.
later that month we took a break from the house work to do a day trip to hurricane ridge with dear friends. the mountains.. the crab hats (?!) ...ah, the northwest!
lastly, here is how i decided to cope with the shear enormity of our wildly unkempt jungle of a yard. i planted a pot. it is my 2 square feet of manicured sanctuary amidst our sorely neglected yard. it sits right on my porch & is the first thing i see when i step out the door. it gives this novice homeowner hope as she comes & goes a grungy, tired & paint splattered version of her former self. ;)
