76 degrees and sunny in Portland, Oregon. You may be scratching your head pondering the idea but YES-it actually happened. A few friends and I decided to gear up and make some plans for the big day. We decided that yard work/lounging in the sun was in order and then a BBQ. Before we had the BBQ, we lounged in LOUNGE CHAIRS and read and hubby did yard work-go hubby! We grabbed some SPF 50, sunglasses, a hat, and our lounge chairs. We then hit the backyard-Cali style without the pool. When I closed my eyes I could see a sparkling pool.
My cutie husband worked so hard weeding/yardening. Our adorable dog, Rosie, was helping.
It was an impromptu BBQ, which meant there was really no planning. In the end, this meant a lot of food. Never a bad thing though. Who doesn't need 13 bags of chips.
Friends from Cali were in town to enjoy our 1 day of really awesome weather.
Some four square had to be played. I need some practice. I suck. and I really don't mind.
By the end of the night, Wubbit became sad that she had to leave.
Today it's partly cloudy and warm. Although, as I write this....the clouds are rolling in. We are to expect SLEET this week. huh.
And, because I can-a list of to-do's and stuff:
--Must make a grocery list.
--Go grocery shopping.
--Finish my part of the weeding.
--Finish knitting the 2 scarves I started 1 thousand years ago.
--Finish reading 'Kafka on the shore'-sheesh. Good but sheesh.
--Re-arrange our 2nd room to be my office. I don't even know where to start. I might need to call in Kate of All Trades.
--Buy some new kicks. (Summer sandals and tennis shoes).
--Build a garden box. PLANT VEGGIES.
--Passive Aggressive blogging by others is AWESOME.
