Saturday in Late July

Saturday, July 26, 2008
Today was a great day. The weather the past couple of weeks has been beautiful. Rarely does Portland have a string of 80 degree days. Usually, it's 100 degrees and I'm laying on the couch dying from heat exhaustion (we don't have a/c), or it's 60 degrees and overcast. Love this weather!

We spent some money today on camping gear, which we'll be putting to use next weekend at Pickathon. We've never been before, but are looking forward to it. With a small stove, I'll even be able to make an espresso each morning--thank goodness! I know it will be interesting camping with two little ones, but life is short, so we might as well live it to the fullest.

Then we headed north to the Mississippi Pizza Pub for lunch, then walked across the street to look at The Rebuilding Center for an old vintage sash I'd like to paint and hang in our bathroom that I've just finished painting (looks great, by the way). I didn't find the sash I was looking for, but I'll try again in another week or two as materials are constantly being dropped off.

Later, Landon took the kids to the park, and I got caught up on some reading for book-club. Juniper is doing a lot better with Landon these days, and I'm so relieved to finally have some time to myself here and there. After reading, I went outside and worked in the garden for a couple of hours. My neighbor even brought me over a glass of chilled rosé wine. Doesn't get much better than that on a summer evening.
