It’s a miracle!

Ok, so it’s more like patience…but I’ve finally got Internet access and cable at home! Yes, that now means that it will be about a million times easier to keep in touch since I can e-mail, post pictures and blog from my home office rather than staying late at work to do that fun stuff. So in honor of my new connections I’m posting new pictures in my online album and a few of the best ones here. Check them all out here or keep scrolling for a handful of them.

By the way, I went to the Puyallup Fair yesterday with one of the gals from accounting, her husband and two daughters. What a treat to spend the day with a family just wandering around, chatting, laughing and having fun! And the fair was fun, too. We visited all of the cute (and not so cute) animals. No rides for us, but lots of yummy food and walking! Take a look at the Super Pumpkin winner…huge, eh?

Oh, and last weekend I took a walk at Alki Beach in West Seattle. Pastor Steve had been poking me about going nearly since I arrived and I finally made it. Boy was he right – it was beautiful! There’s a walking path that runs right along the water and one side gives you a perfect view of downtown Seattle and as you work your way around the point of West Seattle it takes you to a breathtaking view of Puget Sound. Well worth it!

Ok, off to get dinner but check back soon…I’ll be posting more often.

Bad girl…but here are pictures

So I’ve been a bit lax in writing here – sorry! – life and work are finally kicking up and I’m finding it harder to squeeze in time to put my thoughts down on digital paper. But here goes…a bunch of new pictures and little descripts. Enjoy!

My dear friend Janelle painting my bedroom wall. Awww…

My two slimy friends…Kermit One and Kermit Two. Ribbitt!

You can barely see it (but it’s there)…the waterfall and Issaquah Creek in my backyard. Pretty, eh?

A sweet little flower in my backyard.

And a few sun-loving white flowers in my backyard that open only when the sun is shining on them. Note a tiny glimpse of the waterfall poking through the trees in the background! (Aunt TT, these are the flowers I was describing to you.)

Haven’t forgotten

Really, I haven’t forgotten about blogging…it’s just been getting busier and busier during daytime hours and I still don’t have Internet access at home. Good news, though, I moved into my own apartment over the weekend. It was a lot of work between painting, cleaning, unpacking the cube, and unpacking into the apartment. But it’s all been worth it! A note to all of you who’re planning a big move: if you can take your kitchen food staples with you, do it! The worst part of the whole move has been rebuying all of those standard kitchen things like flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, etc. Oy!

My apartment is providing a little bit of entertainment as well. I didn’t realize it at first, but I have a little atrium in my bedroom window! It’s a basement window and vines and other plants have spilled into it along with some little critters…most notably two little frogs that like to peer in the windows. Such cuties! Look for pictures in a future posting.

Gotta run but will post more tomorrow – hopefully a slower day!
