Just google it! My answer to anyone's question when I don't know the answer. That is what I did in regards to my last post about not being able to post photos.

So here we go trying to post the photo of our holiday table.

And here it is! I figured it out! Get ready for way more post from Perennial Knitter!

It's beginning...

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!

Currently reading "The Necklace".

Thanks Ma Fowler for telling me about it. I am really enjoying it. I have gotten a couple girls from work to read as well so we have a mini book club and are going to review it at the end of November.

I haven't been on here much. The rest of summer flew by and now we are into fall. I am crazy busy at work. We had company and now we are having company again starting tomorrow.

The Boy is growing like crazy and talking a ton. He likes to chat on the phone and can have a conversation with the person on the other end. He doesn't just want to touch all the buttons.

Am starting Holiday tomorrow at Noon.... I hope Noon if I can get all my work done by then.

I hope to have some time to post some photos and catch up on some things.

See you shortly.

My New Ride!

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.

First Camping Trip

Beverly Beach State Park
Our New Tent - Hope to get some good use out of it!

Breakfast in the back of the car. He liked hanging out in there- it was his safe haven!

Beverly Beach- Pooka in his own sand castle!

Sand Castle someone was working on.

Deciding what to do next!

It was a great first camping trip. It has been a while for me. I loved it. Hope to do it again soon!

Photo Catch up

Last Days in the Crib... He never did learn how to climb out. He could climb in but not out! He is jumping up and down that is why he is blurry.

Big Boy Bed part I. Auntie Mary is still working on the frame so that will come shortly.

Checking out his iPod on his new bed! He won't sleep in it yet!

New sleeping bag for camping. LL Bean!

Photo Ben took of me while we were playing in his tent. That image on the left up close is his finger.

Self Portrait!

Hanging in the tent!

Multnomah Falls. When Ben saw it he said "That is humungous!" He is a little obsessed with water falls so thought he might like checking out a real one. He liked it.

Papa and the Boy in a little cave!

A garlic I grew from last fall. I put the cloves in last fall and this is my first harvest. I have about 8 or so still out there will keep them for a bit longer and then try drying them.

Am I the only blog without a photo of a Peony? I have two Peony plants- one has bloomed and fallen over from the rain and the other nothing.

Actually I should say a blooming Peony... looking back I did post a photo of the non blooming one.

I missed the Peony photo rage this year!

This Weekend

We are going to take a ride on this!
Some sort of Strawberry festival in Canby on Saturday. Going with friends so not sure of the details- couldn't find anything on line.

Will be a fine ride!

Also the big news- the Boy is getting a big boy bed soon so going mattress shopping as well. Linen's are bought- Auntie Mary is redoing the frame now all we need is the mattress! Fun!

The Yard

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?

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!
