citrus-ade. we’re into this around here. it started when we wanted limeade but didn’t have enough limes. then it turned into lime/lemonade. and then we didn’t have enough lemons. enter oranges.
clickety-click. a little web browsing. check out this site omar found awhile back that shows pictures of old american train stations that were demolished to accommodate…um…uglier train stations? and some vacant lots. then i read the recent sweet juniper! entry that talks about detroit’s grocery situation (really, you should read it. it’s quite interesting). and in the article he mentions and shows a picture of the abandoned michigan central station. all 18 stories of it. beautiful. here is his flickr set documenting the state inside the station. sad, eerie, and beautiful.
more browsing. omar told me that the last thing we need in this house is more chairs. he’s right. but i love the new era chairs from dwr. one day i’ll win a shopping spree here…
pretending. the boys are rocking the pretend world. pretend grocery trips. pretend hair cuts. pretend communion reenactments.
grilling. bobby flay fish tacos, anybody? and i didn’t miss the sour cream and cheese too much.
kite flying. who knew that $1 kites would be the hit of the picnic we were at on saturday? and they actually flew quite well.
