To look a lot like Christmas. Decorations are up except for the tree!
Thinking next weekend before we go on the Santa Train Ride we will get the tree and put it up. Then decorate when we get home.
I'm posting from my new iPad and it won't let me upload the photo I just took of our wine rack. It's my holiday table! I have Ben's tree on it. I asked him if he wanted his tree in his room or the living room. He chose the living room. It has all his little ornaments that have his name on them.
If anyone knows the trick to posting photos when using an iPad please let me know. The upload photo button is greyed out. Grrr!

Not the best photo- I took with my phone- need to take a better one tomorrow. I found a great deal at REI and went for it. Novara Express XX! I got fenders and a rack so I can carry my pannier! Totally excited. Love it! Love it! Love it! Love that it's white. Wanted either white or powder blue. Went there with a different bike in mind but found it was not what I wanted and fell in love with this one!
Also, I am a New REI Member! Go ME!
Now I want to commute year round. Lets hope I can make it until Nov 1 then I will retire for the winter.
Finally got some veggies in. Only growing 2 tomatoes. One that can be grown in a hanging basket and a patio variety. After buying the hanging basket variety I realized I don't really have a sunny spot to hang it so I have it sitting on a turned over clay pot. Bottom left of the photo. Also have some eggplants and peppers going. Haven't grown either in a long time or never so it will be interesting to see how they turn out. Potatoes that came up from last years harvest! Romaine Lettuce, Bright Lights Chard and Garlic. The garlic was planted last fall. Not sure when to harvest it?
HEN AND CHICKS
Planted some hen and chicks around the edge of the bed. I have tons of them and figured I would spread them out a little. Miles isn't sure about them! Chives, Peony, Hebe and a new dahlia are all present in this photo!
A gift from my good friends Kim and Judy. I have been wanting a dwarf Lilac and here it is! Ben in Bend! He is getting so big. That was a fun weekend. Him and I drove to Bend and hung out!
