random things i hate, and i have no idea why i have the urge to post this:
sex & the city, esp sarah jessica parker (i've never been good at being a "girly girl")
getting up early
workers in the house
reality tv, esp game shows

we're home now, back from the beach. all in all, a great trip, but too short. the condo was great. had a beautiful kitchen, nice flat screen tvs, hot tub on the balcony, telescope (although we saw no whales), card games, pool in the building. lots to do (or to choose to NOT do). we're glad to see our kittens, though. and we stopped for lunch on the way home at our favorite bbq place in dundee - huckabee's. it's right next to the argyle winery. i highly recommend the cheesy grits & the pulled pork sandwich.
on wed, we went for a shorter walk on the beach, because the rain kept starting & stopping. the weather wasn't cooperating. AND, we tried to get ice cream at the same close-by shop, but it was closed. :( so i made j drive farther into town to find another ice cream destination, and clearly, we were successful. see how happy it makes me?!
last friday night, j & i went to rei to use my year's dividend & 20% off coupon to purchase this awesome puffy jacket. it's filled with down, and has a water repellent coating. perfect for those cold camping nights, or for windy days at the coast! this one is actually a men's style, because the women's version didn't come with a hood.

this isn't the best framed picture in the world... i just wanted to capture the pretty yellow trees in our neighbor's yard. today is an angry first day of spring. the sky continues to fluctuate between half cloudy/half sunny, and dark & stormy. it hailed earlier today, and the cats totally freaked out (as they always do). i don't really know what upsets them - i'm guessing it's just the percussive noise of the hail falling.

in early february, we were invited to our friends' house for dinner, and they cooked a delicious indonesian dinner. the rice was molded & presented to look like a volcano - so cute! at the end, i got my first taste of a mangosteen. the last picture is of little l with his friendly puppy piper.
