a few new picts

we've had some visitors over the last few weeks. two weeks ago this friday my mom came through town for the night. on saturday she and i experienced a rainy farmers market and then we (she and i, plus baldman) took off for grandmom and grandad's little house in georgia. the weather was kind of yucky, but we had a great visit anyway.

then, a week ago this friday, my stepdad came through town. he also spent the night and left the next day to join mom in georgia. but he left their dog, tommy, with us. i really enjoyed having him around. we played in the park, took walks, and snuggled on the couch.

yesterday both parents came back through town for one more night visit. this time they took me out to dinner for my birthday. we went to garibaldi's. i'd never been there but had always heard it was excellent, which it certainly was. we also had a little cake and presents celebration, which was very special. thanks, guys!

also, unrelated, on friday afternoon i picked all the remaining kale and collards, plus a bunch of spinach and lettuce. boy, did we have a lot! i'll definitely grow those things again. the kale has been growing for over a year now!

not the best picture, but you get the idea!
