i definitely want to grow some {organic} cabbage again this year!

hope you have a great weekend!

weekinfotos1017-2

beautifully peculiar sunrise!!!

weekinfotos1017-3

on my bike ride to work one morning, i spotted these people riding a 7-seat “conference bike” … they asked if i could take a picture for them, to which i replied, “i would be honoured!  that is the coolest thing i’ve ever seen!” and apparently, former president jimmy carter said the same thing

{that was the best article i could find about this cool device}

basalt, colorado… which i discovered this week, was apparently volcanic at one time…?!  did you know this?!  i was fascinated to find this out… so crazy!

{foto friday : living vicariously through my camera phone – including like, three selfies!}

4 Apr

hey gang.  hope you are all doing well.

this week was a rollercoaster as far as emotions and happenings go.  and the only rollercoasters i like are the ones i build on rollercoaster tycoon and pretend ride.  and i’m actually serious about that, just ask my former roommate and still one of my best friends… he’ll tell you about my non-love of rollercoasters or things that go fast, in general… like waterslides. :/

nevertheless, here are a few happy highlights from my week via the shake-it app… {still my fav.}

mepixie-1

i went pixie, again!  i love it; brings out the new-yorker in me – and i just feel more like myself this way…

schwepps-1

i happily spent a ridiculous 75 cents for this little cute bottle of club soda.  i saved and reused the bottle for my liquid vitamins… i just love glass and i just love tiny things! 😉

image

it “sunny snowed” this week – and i am amazed my iPhone was able to capture the little flakes.

image

on that same day, my boss let me borrow his sunglasses ‘coz i forgot mine and he insisted they would make me cooler… i insisted that wasn’t possible. 😉

image

and despite the friggin mercurical weather, i planted my seeds…

image

and i hope to god they do not end up looking like this {clearly} genetically modified apple. i mean seriously, have you looked at conventional produce in the last couple years? it’s like that movie “cloudy with a chance of meatballs.”  — the food is getting abnormally large!  am i crazy or should an apple NOT be the size of two of my fists!??!?!  i digress…

deer-1

i had several very intense and wonderfully silent moments with my “neighbours”…

sopris-1

then there’s mount sopris… which just makes me happy for existing.  and – i applied for a job with this view. uhm, yes please!

image

this is where i currently work – it’s kind of like going to heaven every day – only with more people 😉

image

and sometimes snow doesn’t piss me off… cuz it’s pretty…

overit-1

but it’s also annoying… especially in april.

the end.. for now.

have a great weekend, ya’ll! ❤ 😉

zuko-7

…i can’t even handle it… SO CUTE!!!!!!!!

zuko is not my dog, but i get to play with him all the time ‘coz he belongs to my neighbour/landlord and he is always wandering over to my tiny home to play and be adorable.  like when he laid on my yoga mat the other day in the sun…

zuko-8

downward-facing zuko.

{foto friday – local love}

7 Mar

how happy am i to have recently been made aware of an amazing little local/organic store within biking distance of where i live!!?!??!!!?!?!?!

SO!!!!!! 😀

cherrytomatoes-1

beautiful cherry tomatoes grown within 60 miles of my home…

cherrytomatoes-2

exploding with flavour!!  i’m guessing they are hydroponically grown… which in my opinion, seems to be the most tasty way to grow tomatoes – just from personal experience, having eaten a bajillion of them over the last few years. 😉  hello, remember my san marzano obsession!?  cuz i do… Continue reading

{foto friday – sometimes, all you have is a camera phone…}

21 Feb

…to capture the beautiful things that happen in your life…

and may i add – THANK GOODNESS that i have the capability to take pictures of life’s – shall we say – “precious moments” 😉

weekinfotosfeb212014-1

like when my cat totally curls up in my arms for 3 hours while i watch a movie on the couch…

weekinfotosfeb212014-2

or when i catch a glorious sunset…

weekinfotosfeb212014-7

or moonset… 😉

weekinfotosfeb212014-8

or when i’m wondering a trail on my lunch-break, and have a meaningful moment with nature…

weeklyfotos-2

i went to work – this is what i see when i arrive… 🙂

weeklyfotos-1

i had edible flowers in a salad i bought at the market…  that was a first, for sure! especially considering i just grabbed it from the salad bar… i also discovered that they sell boars head meat, which got me all kinds of excited and happy! 😀

weeklyfotos-3

i took a selfie at the bus-stop…

weeklyfotos-4

i enjoyed this amazing spread with some friends…

{foto friday – “this house is blessed with love, laughter, family, friends, and a cat”}

17 Jan

just a couple shots of my kitty callee, being insanely cute and sitting next to this pillow my grandma gave me years before i even got callee… doesn’t the cat on the pillow look just like her?!!!

calleehousecat-2

gah, she’s just so cute!!!!!

calleehousecat-1

🙂  have a great weekend, everyone!

{it’s the first foto friday of 2014 : and i’m still obsessed with the “shake-it” app}

3 Jan

i don’t care if it’s like, 5 years old and moreover, that it resembles an old-school polaroid foto. i’m sure there are way “cooler” apps out there now, but i still love the good ol’ shake-it app.

and here are some snapshots from my week :

newyears2013-2

i enjoyed this amazing burger from the best place in the valley…

newyears2013-3

i made myself these amazing crab legs for new year’s eve celebration…

newyears2013-4

then followed it with this mostly amazing tradition for lunch the on new year’s day… i say mostly because it was a little dry, but i ate it anyway. 😉 Continue reading

{it’s the final foto friday of 2013!}

27 Dec

and this is what happened this week :

———

fotofridaydecebmer2013-4

i worked on christmas day for the first time in my life… which was kind of okay and kind of weird. naturally, i brought my vitamix breakfast cookies to the office – and all 4 dozen got devoured! 😉

fotofridaydecebmer2013-1

callee was adorable – every second of every day… just look at her! 😉

fotofridaydecebmer2013-2

i visited the best breakfast place in town… these mugs are personal for the local regular guests – how cute is that?! 😉

fotofridaydecebmer2013-3

it was so damn cold in the mornings, the windshield-washer fluid in my friend’s car totally froze… but also created this cool pattern 😉

fotofridaydecebmer2013-5

and i saw this family of ravens… they tend to follow me around – they are my spirit animal, no doubt! 😉

i’m pretty sure this was a mama and a bunch of babies. although i’m not certain because it seems odd that they would have offspring in the winter, but i didn’t feel like researching it… does anyone know when crows/ravens typically mate and reproduce?

happy last friday of the year!!

😀

13 Dec

i mean, seriously. the temps have been beyond frigid lately and i’m wearing more layers and socks than any one person probably should… but we’re due for a heat-wave this week – we’re going to hit 32 degrees!!!

😉
