Because August is almost over.....!....and last week I declared August the month of movies-I have another fun video to share with you all.
These are random clips from when Mr. Gill and I met our good friends Tom and Jess out in Portland in February.
Just so you know.....we're all a little goofy-but we're fun :)

Happy Campers

The Month of Movies!

A couple of weeks ago Mr. Gill and I tried to go camping.....emphasis on TRIED because we never actually made it to camp.

We got lost in the mountains instead.

Because I told Mr. Gill to turn on an unmarked dirt road on top of a mountain.

The road was so narrow and seemingly endless we kind of thought we were either going to careen off a cliff or have to spend the night on the road in the middle of the woods next to the *CREEPY* trailers that said no trespassing w/electric fences (heaven help us).

And I recorded it.

A couple of things to note before you watch the video:

1. Mr. Gill and I will have children who clearly annunciate when they speak.

2. Sometime I laugh uncontrollably when I'm freaked out and maybe I sound like a weird dying bird when I'm laughing/crying at the same time....which, just so you know happens a lot.
Just be happy YOU didn't marry me.

3. We made it home. I recorded this whole schpeal about how we made it out safely but then I didn't actually hit the record button when we were saying it....and so, you don't get it see it. Sorry!

Rock Star

About a month ago Mr. Gill played a 'gig' where he opened for a touring band Mon Cheri.

He played @ the District Coffeehouse.'s a video of his Indiana song. It was recorded by me....on top of some stacked books on a table so, it happens to have kind of poor sound quality AND it's shaky AND I kind of missed the first it starts out in the chorus....but.
HEY at least I got a video right?

It also happens to be a little 5-ish minutes.

Sorry the video is a month late :/

Wasting Time

I have no obligations today.

I had none yesterday.....or the day before that.

I have had no schedule, no pressing things to do.....other than shower, and sometimes I feel like that is also optional (or could happen @ 3 in the afternoon).

You may not remember but, lack of structure is not a good place for me.

I have spent TOO MUCH TIME on the Internet, discovering new blogs, looking up home repair stuff and just not being a productive person in society.

But, in other news.....I've had plenty of time to take pictures of what I've been eating!

.....because I know you are so interested.

This was my lunch for today! Mixed greens from our CSA-which, next time we get it I'll take a picture of all the beautiful veggies we get from them,-craisins, sunflower seeds and a lemon vinaigrette I made a couple of days ago. Also, left over coffee from this morning.

Sooo Good and refreshing! The greens are slightly bitter, the vinaigrette is tart, the craisins slightly sweet and the seeds add a great amount of crunch. Yum! It did not pair well w/the coffee....which is french pressed espresso from Costco but, I just can't let it go to waste.


oh and food.

 I also love food.

just in case you thought I survived on just coffee no, there is a healthy dose of sugar and butter in my diet too!
