Since Wednesday

We've danced with Rhett at the Kennedy School:

Been pushed to our favorite coffee spot by Opa:
Gone swimming in the freezing cold Sandy River:
And also at this fancy place, Stoller Vinyards:
Oregon is pretty over-the-top beautiful, no?

I know...the nose was runny. We're hoping that faucet-action means more teeth are coming.

The Stoller family dogs: Pinot Noir with the tongue, Chardonnay with the tooth.

Last night, I was so touched by this lovely post. This blogging community is full of such soulful people. I got to meet Julie at the Blog Union and look forward to seeing her again when we're in her area (and fyi: she grows her own teff. What kind of Superwoman is this?).

Now I'm finishing up my first Bill Bryson book, I'm a Stranger Here Myself, and waiting for Twilight to arrive in the mail hopefully later this week so I can join the teen vampire club.

Oh, and we cleaned the house today and I almost finished the Saturday crossword too. Exciting.

1.Abe is a busy little man. :)And an adorable little man.

2. Couldn't agree more, oregon is very very beautiful.

3. I must totally be out of the loop because I don't know what Twilight is and you are the 3rd person I've seen mention it. You'll have to fill me in on that one!

Autumn and Dan's family said...

Awww...that is cute. We had fun.

I love the picture of Ted and Abe in the grass. Ag! So sweet!

Julie said...

Aww Shucks, thanks Lori.

I am afraid my experiment in teff growing has gone painfully awry. Two words...premature harvest.
Oregon is crazy beautiful, and you must tell me again the trick to living in OR while working in CA. I MUST KNOW!

That's some fancy high-stepping dancing!

Hi, I'm new to your blog; I'm a fellow adoptive parent in Portland and wanted to introduce myself. My friend in Salem actually found your blog and pointed me to it; she and her husband adopted their daughter from Vietnam at the same time we did and now is in process for a second adoption from Ethiopia (and would love to talk with you more about your experience but is "comment-shy" and wanted me to be Cyrano for her. Me, you can't shut me up.).

That snaggletooth pug is perhaps the cutest thing I've ever seen.

great pictures!
Zach and I just returned from northern CA... beautiful... wish we'd been closer to you to squeeze in a visit... oh well, merlefest '09...

Your pictures are delightful, as always. I hope you enjoy Twilight- Christina got me started in June, and I've read all four of them. I tried to keep in under wraps, as I wasn't sure how to explain that I was reading a teenage vampire story... You just tell them, so I've found.

If you get hooked, brace yourself for over 2500 pages of reading. That Stephenie Meyer can create beautiful imagery, but she is NOT concise.

Love you, Stephanie Brown

Just plan to block off the next few weeks of your life when Twilight arrives. You won't have time for much else but reading and you'll want to devour all four books. Can you tell I'm a fan?

Be prepared to burn the midnight oil reading Twilight! I am so close to finishing Book 4. I'm slightly obsessed!!!!
