Day 24: A Love
Category: My Slice Challenge
Trees. Clean air. Being out of cell range (unless I’m anxiously awaiting a phone call as I was during this trip, in which case it fuels me into being a bit of a nightmare). Baby Love signing “more.” More what? Nature? Cuddles? Pizza? (Despite an ongoing love of broccoli, Baby Love has now fully embraced toddler-dom by declaring “pizza” to be his favorite food/favorite word.) Family. The Mister. Winnie (likely wandering about and staying clear of Baby Love’s path). All of the above and more. That’s what fuels me. The fact that the Mister is wearing an Oregon shirt and a hat from Hawaii is a bonus.

Day 21: Close to Home
I’m excited about the day when I live somewhere that allows for a raised vegetable garden. Truly, I am. But until then, a few potted items will do. In this case, it’s what will become sweet red peppers.
Day 19: From a Low Angle
Because we missed the metro by a lot, we didn’t get to do the run-and-slip-in-just-as-the-doors-are-closing thing. Instead we waited patiently and shortly thereafter we stepped aboard. And thirty minutes after that we walked into The Last Bookstore, a new/used book shop downtown that is, in a word, awesome. Filled with cool displays of books, including a book tunnel, and a whole floor of $1 books, this was a trip worth taking. Eight dollars later we each had two books respectively and four more for Baby Love. Then we walked around the corner to Peddler’s Creamery where we got delicious bicycle-churned ice cream. It was as if we took the metro from Universal City to Portland, Oregon.
Day 15: Free Day!
