Camping Part One

We went on an adventure.  A quick two night camping trip to Orcas Island in the Saun Jaun's.

I'll read you what I wrote. 

We're on our way in a tall white boat, sitting at a pale beige table decorated with brown Indian patterns.  A sprinkle of lunch crumbs dot our jeans and the dated mixture of brown-yellow banquets, sitting a top their old green bases.  Big picture windows across the isle are temporary homes to a fast moving view, with nary an orca in sight.  Curious eyes watch for whales until they grow tired and lay their heads on the very bench they sit.

Strawberry Vanilla Bean Jam

Hi there.


DQ run, first of the season! Followed up by an intense sweat-session game of catch.
Bike ride to the swollen Fraser, along with the rest of Chilliwack!
Socca tart for lunch.  Garlic scape pesto, radishes and garden peas with goat cheese.  Yum!
On the way to pickup my csa.  Teeny-tiny corn plants (soon to be huge)
Twelve pound of strawberries, by yours truly.
Eight-am oil change/brake check.
My best frittata, sausage & goat cheese, kale, herb and garlic (all from my garden)

Date day?

With one completely random and short notice day together Shane and I tackled a few items off "the list."  Hobbies we could enjoy together.  (Probably the best thing for our relationship since our three months traveling Europe, it's seriously gold for two people who have no hobbies in common.)  What fun we had!  I started our grey morning with the best strawberry shortcakes.  Angel biscuits (accidentally double the shortening, whoops!) from Paula Dean, vanilla whipped cream and strawberries in sugar and lemon juice.  Try and top it.  I think Shane ate about six.

The week

We received the family pictures we took last week.  Don't we look great?
We're pretty awesome sometimes.
