HIII!! so.....whats been going on?? (as she tries to pretend like she hasnt been a horribly absent friend) this has been a busy summer, i have gotten more done these past few months than the past three years put together i think. just getting my house put to rights and then keeping up with everything. i am not an orderly person so it takes a lot of practice for me to get into good housekeeping habits. i LIKE doing stuff around the house, i just needed to get used to the fact that housekeeping isnt something you do only once...lol.
here are some pictures from this summer:)
this pic was after it sun stormed. do you see the double rainbow? i know the poles are in the way, everyone here has em' this close to their homes.
i went to California this summer!! it was the first week of September so i pretended that the whole trip was specifically designed to cater to my birthday...which wasnt until the middle of September...
this pic is from mimis cafe, DO NOT order their version of vegetable side dishes..8 pieces of broccoli and a few carrots is pathetic....and that was a double order...BUT look at this picture (of a picture:) closely...this weirdo is stuffing a giant duck(ok its really a live swan) into a car!!!
uh huh, uh huh...not seeing any resemblance...
this is monster:) i found her running around San Diego seven years ago covered in fleas,with a bad haircut....which is the worst travesty you can inflict on a dog that thinks shes a purebred...something....anyway my parents are in love with her now:)
this is in my parents back yard...practically a vineyard!!
then we went to my grandmas house...
i made(all vegan) gluten free cranberry muffins, reg blackberry muffins, GF brownies, two GF apple crisp pies, two layer vanilla cake...and...i think thats it? oh and some dark chocolate mint bark for my grandma. she is GF so i made lots of things that she could freeze. that vanilla cake looks a mess but omgosh was it good! the best part was that everyone ate all of my stuff and nobody was worried about it being vegan! i did have a vegan police moment that im not to proud of...i was about to cut the cake (after i insisted everyone sing happy birthday to me) and my aunt was all " ill go see if we have ice cream" and im all...."no! no! its all vegan it'll ruin my all vegan birthday desserts!! " so.. you know i was trying to make a joke out of it...but i was serious. no ice cream for you!
then the next day we went to this Mexican restaraunt that had a special VEGAN section!! it was really neat!my Uncle had been there before and saw that section on the menu and so he brought us all there. my food was one of the best looking plates the waiter brought out!! the fajita skillet is kinda blending in to the background in this pic.
this is also in my parents back yard. a fig tree!!! the thing is HUGE. it used to be to my hip, it grows like a monster. everyday i got to go out to their yard and pick my breakfast. two kinds of grapes, figs, and apples!
little wiggles, you think she is being sweet but she is just hoping for some food...
a very worried wet wiggles:)
did i already post this pic?
i always know when im back in AZ
oh and we got a scooty!!! we have driven over 700 miles already on it, and its only been a bit over a month! stomper surprised me one day asking if i wanted to go to the next town over and get a scooter....my makeup was tragic that day i was in such a rush,hahaha.(hes changing the oil with ginger pup helping:))
whew, thats a mish mash of pictures!! hope everyone had a great summer!! i love the fall!!
