Haiku Friday

Missed you today, guys!
Cuz I had nonstop meetings.
All of them were fine.

Staycation next week.
Spending time with the wee girls.
Should be a good time.

Buddy's six beeday,
A visit from portlanders,
Not too many plans.

Good morning & sisters/tbt


this morning, me and Joze were playing like we do every morning on the ground in the living room, while I drink my coffee. Buddy came out like she does a little while later and lays down. Little Joze crawled over and kissed her on the face. The end. 

Me and my sisters in maybe 1980? This is a great picture.

when the dog bites, when the bee stings, when i'm feeling bad

  1. The author CD Reiss and the way she writes about Los Angeles. The author Rainbow Rowell and the way she writes about first love.
  2. Sauvignon Blanc in the summertime and the Bottlerock happy hour right next door to my work.
  3. Pasta with kale, sausage and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Reading about Donald Trump in the NY Times because it seems like he is crashing and burning. 
  5. Looking at pictures of my two little ones while I am at work and showing every single person I meet both of my kids within seconds of meeting them. 
What are yours?

You could hear a pin drop at my work! And it will probably be like this for the next ten weeks. Half of the people who work here are on vacation and it will be like that until after labor day.

It's technically not true that you could hear a pin drop, though. Here's what you can hear - the construction noise of 15 skyscrapers being raised outside my window. Seriously. Here are some pictures, if you don't believe me.

Okay maybe not fifteen, but that's like eight. And it doesn't take into account the 3 or 4 that are all the way to the left.

Summer has begun weekend pics

I didn't do much this weekend. We hung out in the backyard, watched the girls splash. Josie and I stayed home all day yesterday while Babe and Buddy went to a birthday party. I got to do a lot of chores and drink corona in the backyard and make good food so I have zero complaints. Zero!

We celebrated Father's Day too! I made Babe French toast and we grilled. All around a casual summer weekend.

Father's Day

Do you know me? Then you probably know my dad. 

He is one of the kindest people I know. I love how his eyes crinkle when he smiles and I love how much he loves the Joze.

Happy Father's Day to my pops!

Haiku Friday

I got a best friend
Her name is Sasha and she's
At my work today.

Starbucks trip is done.
Coloring pages printed
Now it's time to work.

When I was a kid
I was always at my dad's 
work. It was so nice.
