Watching: Tomatoes ripen in the garden. WTF? I know that everything is early this year, but tomatoes in June? Get outta here.
Loving: Stella’s Elvis impression. Poor puppy has about half her teeth which makes for some ca-ute lipped pouts. Can’t get enough of her.
Listening to: The crazy amount of birds in our yard. I’ve worked very hard to keep our yard organic so as to attract beneficial birds and insects and it must be paying off! We live very close to Boeing Field and I always worried that the flight traffic would keep them away, but I guess not!
Doing: I recently spoke on a panel about non-profit event planning at the Advancement NW conference. This was my first public speaking engagement and I was HELLA nervous. I practiced for a week straight and it paid off! I loved seeing people taking frantic notes and nodding their heads as I was speaking. It was a very validating and rewarding experience!
Reading: Haven’t actually read this book yet, but I’m working on a 4,500 book mailing at work (see top left photo of my temporary book storage in our parking garage!) Not sure why I volunteered to complete this project….I don’t know a thing about special mailings and this one is a doozy. I’ll be celebrating with a bottle of bubbly when these hit mailboxes. Sheesh.
Eating: Our first batch of CSA cherries! Oh man….so glad that we signed up for a fruit CSA this year through Tonnemaker! We’re pretty good on veggies with the help of our backyard garden so having a fruit-only CSA fills in the gaps for us. They had a bumper crop of cherries so we ordered extras to enjoy this week. Yum!
Thinking about: Our upcoming camping trip to Mt. Rainier. I’m so excited to get out of town for the weekend and I haven’t been to the southern part of Rainier in AGES. Looking forward to hitting up a day hike near Paradise and the general relaxation of camping with friends and family.
