Happy Birthday RB!

Happy 28th Birthday lil' Sis!
Birthday Morning at Hyas Lake

My sister, RLA, came to Seattle to celebrate her birthday burly style- a 3 day backpacking trip to Hyas Lake in Central Washington.

"Oh a hiking we will go!"

Rbinator in the Mountains!

We hiked and we hiked and made it to beautiful Tuck Lake for lunch and had a wonderful day exploring the area.

Bits, Bird-dog, RB and Brianna the wonder dog at Hyas Lake.

Hip Hop hurray It's Her Birthday! Laura made a wonderful chocolate cake, YUM.

Take Me Home

Say hello to Brianna, a 4 year old Boxer mix breed.

She's available for adoption from the Seattle Animal Shelter

She is very well trained.

She enjoys the comforts of home: lounging around on the couch & cuddling in bed. She does know better and will quickly jump down when told to.

She is a great fetcher and loves to play tug of war.

Brianna is attentive, active, house broken, affectionate and wants to be a part of your life! She is up to date on her shots and she is spayed.
Currently, Brianna is in a foster home staying with me and Bird-dog in Queen Anne.
Contact the Seattle Animal Shelter for information on adoption.

Worms Eat My Garbage!

A few days ago Karen, a friend at the Yarn Barn, gave me her old -apartment size-worm composting bin. Her enthusiastic approach in explaining and handling the worms got me very excited to try it out.

It is quite small. I was expecting something large, stinky and grotesque.
As it turns out the bin is kinda cute and I think I saw baby worms already. They will eat our left over waste from fruits and vegies, and turn it into nutrient rich compost soil for my plants!

I still have not gotten the courage to actually touch the stuff.
Keep trying, it's only a worm.

NO fuss, NO Muss. I'll keep posting on how it's all going. So far so good!
