Cat photos. Everyone likes cat photos!

IMG_8940

Juniper and I were hanging out this afternoon. She was rolling around and just asking to be photographed!

IMG_8946

She ignored me for the most part.

IMG_8950

She was sleepy.

IMG_8951

And I just love that little face!

IMG_8954

Rollin’!

IMG_8955

Scratchy back.

IMG_8957

And dirty paws.

IMG_8958

She’s active in the afternoon when we come home from work. If it’s after 3pm…she’s zonked out on “her” chair.

IMG_8959

Shy little girl.

IMG_8961

Deep in thought. Not really deep…she probably just saw a fuzzy on the floor.

IMG_8965

Close your little mouth baby kitty!

IMG_8967

Two paws up for kitty time!

It’s a Birthday!

Today is Eric’s Birthday! We woke up, had some gift giving AND ate a chocolate peanut butter silk pie that I made! Today was also the Mother of all Yard Sales in Everett. I bought some pink lemonade from a little girl selling it along the sidewalk. She even had lemon slices in the cup! She was selling pink lemonade, limeade and regular lemonade. We opted for the pink lemonade since she said it was her favorite.

Eric wanted to go to Bamboo Garden in Seattle for lunch and I’m not one to say no to some Bamboo Garden. I had some wonton udon noodle soup. So good!

IMAG2066

Bamboo Garden serves sizzling plates that Eric has been lusting after for a long time. They’re a little pricey but since it was his Birthday I was able to talk him into finally having one. He approves.

IMAG2068

These were my finds for the day! I’ve heard good things about Stiff so I picked it up at my favorite used book store in Fremont. The (racist?) Canadian Mounted Policeman was a yard sale find. I have a thing for Mounties so I had to add him to my collection! Also I’m apparently starting to wear nail polish. In the past week I’ve purchased three bottles of the stuff! I’m almost girly.

And this face was waiting for us at home! Cute little girl.

Kick it!

Eric and I posted our Kickstarter project a few days ago!  I get wordy and confusing so here’s how Eric described the project on Hey I’m Over Here

“Following our June wedding on the east coast, Sarah and I will be embarking on a honeymoon trip along Route 66. For three weeks, we’ll be photographing the Road and the oddities along it with vintage Polaroid cameras.

Unlike many Kickstarter photography projects, our end goal isn’t a book – it’s the photos themselves. We want to travel Route 66, take photos with vintage Polaroids and send them to people – friends, family, even strangers. Each photo will necessarily be a one of a kind, you will have the only copy in existence. We won’t even have one! . Each will be taken along Route 66 and will in some way capture the essence of the old road. And to be clear, regardless of whether the project is funded, we’ll be traveling Route 66 this summer. The support you give will allow us to purchase film, additional cameras and needed supplies for shipping the photos. Rest assured you will not be funding our vacation.” 

In less than two days we actually reached our funding goal!  We were so surprised and thankful that people wanted our photos!  You can still support the project and we’ll send you photos from the road if you’re interested.  Head on over to our Kickstarter page to check it out!

This post needs a cat photo.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Juniper!

IMG_2239

Our little kitten turned two years old today! I can’t believe she’s that old already. I bought her a few toys to celebrate the day. I also bought her a new soft brush to get rid of that pesky winter fur. Juniper had this same exact toy when we adopted her. She lost it somewhere…I assume under the washing machine…but she loved it! She started playing with this right away after I took it out of the package.

IMG_2243

She likes to play fetch with the mint toy too. She likes to play fetch with most of her toys, but this one is easy for her to carry around in her mouth.

IMG_2245

It’s Birthday-bath time! Someone needs to vacuum up those sock fuzzies!

IMG_2251

I also picked up this little comfort toy for her. You can warm this toy up in the microwave for 30 seconds and the beans inside the toy will be nice and warm for your cat. It’s supposed to be comforting for the cat. I plan on warming this up everyday for her and giving it to her to cuddle. I hope to have the person watching Juniper while we’re travelling this summer warm this up for her everyday so she feels comforted. I feel really bad about leaving Juniper this summer!

Happy 2nd Birthday my little rescue kitten!

Donuts, more food, and walking off that food!

IMG_1917

This chubby little thing greeted us after getting out of the car for some Saturday morning donuts at Mighty O.

IMG_1919

One donut for each hand. I don’t mess around. Peanut butter and orange blossom! I’m on level 2 of Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred…I deserve donuts!

IMG_1921

I spotted this gem after leaving the donut shop. I saw it, stopped the car and put it in reverse. There are a ton of these Little Free Libraries popping up all over Seattle AND the states! Look them up to find a Little Free Library near you!

IMG_1925

The Little Free Libraries are free, of course, or a leave one take one deal. I’m going to start carrying some books in my car so I can trade books if I find something I like!

IMG_1927

In Fremont there’s a vintage shop we like to check out once in a while. We usually find some interesting items, but I’m also usually too cheap. We picked up a bag of groceries and since we didn’t have enough food already, we went to Bamboo Garden for some lunch! I always seem to get their creamy corn chowder.

IMG_1928

Mongolian beef! 100% vegan too!

IMG_1930

After stuffing our faces we needed a walk. We ventured around Discovery Park for about an hour. I was sleepy, but I kept on truckin’.

IMG_1935

Fort Lawton is in Discovery Park and used to be a missile base. There are some houses that are still lived in by Army personnel. That big ‘ol white thing in the background is a radar tower.

IMG_1936

Discovery Park is huge. Five hundred thirty four acres huge! The park is in decent condition, but it could use some loving. Parts of the park are paved paths and some are just dirt. There’s a lighthouse that you can walk to which we did not do this time. I think we it gets a little sunnier and warmer we’ll take the long walk to the beach and lighthouse!

IMG_1939

That tree wasn’t messing around!

IMG_1943

We’re getting more sun an blue skies! I can’t wait until I don’t have to wear a jacket and socks. I hate socks.

IMG_1944

These are old parts of the base that aren’t lived in or used any more. I wish you could walk through the buildings. I get that you can’t leave them open all the time, but having them open at certain times would be nice!

IMG_1949

This fun building was the gymnasium!

IMG_1951

And a church on the base was poking through the trees.

IMG_1952

If you’re in Seattle and haven’t been to Discovery Park, you should definitely check it out! But be cautious…tiny plants grow by the inch BUT die by the foot! What a zinger!

Finally Friday!

IMG_1890

Juniper is usually more excited when a package arrives in the mail than we are. She sits beside us while we open it and as soon as its contents are taken out, she hops right in! I found her laying in the a box she turned on its side after my shower today.

IMG_1898

I started a new batch of kombucha 10 days ago! It will soon be time for drinking! This is a really small batch but in a few days I’ll start brewing a gallon. I bought a little heat mat for the brewing because it is just so cold in our house. I think the mushroom is really loving it!

IMG_1899

I was craving pasta and vegetables tonight for dinner. I warmed up some peas, kale and mushrooms to top the pasta.

IMG_1902

I made a cashew cream sauce for the pasta using 1 cup of raw cashews, 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, 1/2 cup soymilk, 1 tablespoon cayenne powder, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon paprika!

IMG_1906

I poured the cashew sauce over 16 ounces of whole wheat pasta.

IMG_1907

And then topped the pasta with veggies! Happy Friday! I even exercised after work and took a nap. I don’t mess around!

Sunbathin’.

Today was very much a spring day in the Pacific Northwest! The sun was shining and the skies were clear. I think it was even close to 50 degrees F! I came home from work and opened all of the curtains for Juniper to look out of. We’ve been getting more and more sun the past few weeks. Juniper has been sunning herself more often too.

IMG_1803

Sunny little toes.

IMG_1804

Kitten shadows.

IMG_1807

I was getting ready to exercise after letting in some light and then I spotted Juniper taking an afternoon bath.

IMG_1808

She had a dirty face.

IMG_1809

Don’t forget to wash behind your ears!

IMG_1813

Put your tongue back in!

IMG_1815

Juniper was sleeping when I came home from work. I guess she needed a good scrubbin’ after a long nap.

IMG_1817

Too much cute!

IMG_1834

All done!

I’ve started to work out with Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred!  I’m on day 4.  I’ve been feeling great after working out!  I wasn’t expecting to get as sweaty as I did but she honestly gives you a good workout.  Give it a try and get moving!

It sure is a Monday.

I made a ton of food tonight after my jaunt on the elliptical machine.  I like making a bunch of food at the beginning of the week so I don’t have to slave over the stove later in the week.  I have other things I’d like to do besides cook!

IMG_1367

Pasta with beans and peppers. Hawaiian chilli with pineapple. Jasmine rice.

IMG_1373

I put my new copper dishes to good use.

IMG_1377

I started to feel a little mopey tonight so forcing Juniper to have a photo shoot with me always makes me feel better.

IMG_1386

She didn’t mind though. She had things to play with.

Cyndi Lauper can always make things right too.

Weekend reading list.

  1.  I found and backed this Kickstart project to restore the only carousel in Wyoming AND the world’s only Cowboy and Indian carousel.
  2. And since saying “Indian” isn’t PC…here’s an article about proper and improper Native American appropriation.  I hate to say it, but I’m super guilty of loving the Native American-inspired patterns that have been littering the fashion world this year.  I can’t help it.  The patterns are gorgeous and you can’t deny that!
  3. Now today I DID find some websites that are owned and operated and made by Native Americans!  These earrings from The Soft Museum are so much fun!  I might need to buy some of these for the wedding.  Sister Sky sells body care products inspired by Native American Herbal wisdom.  They also contain NO animal products and are NOT tested on animals!  I plan on trying their products super soon!  I have my eye on the Sweet Grass Body Lotion.
  4. And on a lighter note, 20 Signs You Are a “Native American-Inspired” Hot Mess.  Number 16 and 19 are my favorite.
  5. This is probably my favorite camera information site.  Moose’s Camera Tips For Beginners is my go-to site!  Give it a browse and you’ll agree with me.
  6. I found this article that listed some right and wrong ways to juice.  Apparently kale isn’t the best veggie to be juicing.  I did not know this.  I always wondered why I see people using spinach more often than kale in juicing recipes.  The more you know, right?

I caught Juniper trying to nap and watch football at the same time a few days ago.

Frosty Thrifting.

It’s been cold here for the past few days.  My mornings before work have been spent with some gloves and an ice scraper.  This morning I wanted to go thrifting so I called up my gloves and scraper again!

IMG_1323

I’m not a huge fan of snow, but if it’s going to be THIS cold…it should just snow.

IMG_1324

I didn’t wear socks on this cold morning. I hate wearing socks. I also hate wearing shoes. Even when it’s cold I try to not wear socks in the house. I usually romp around the house for an hour or two without socks after I shower, but there is only so much cold I can handle.

IMG_1327

Frosty shrubs.

IMG_1328

A few times this winter season it has rained at night and then dipped down below freezing. That of course froze my car doors shut. I was somehow able to open my trunk and crawl through the back of the car to push my door open with my feet. Eww cold.

IMG_1330

I spotted this little containers with lids and I had to scoop them up! They’re yellow! I couldn’t say no.

IMG_1332

I saw two ceramic cats and bought them to send to the Teal Cat Project so they can make more teal kitties to sell!

I posted about the Teal Cat Project a few weeks ago.  You can actually donate ceramic cats you find at thrift stores to the TCP.  They will then paint them and sell them to raise money for their project.  I like donating money to receive a teal kitty, but I wanted to collect a few cats to send them so they have even more to sell!

IMG_1333

And these! Copper bowls with brass handles. I’ve been looking for these for a long time. We always see them at Indian restaurants, but I can never find them online. They are the perfect size for a serving of rice. Today was a small but spectacular haul!
