Colbie Caillat.

WooHoo! My friend Linda and I got off the Island to the Colbie Caillat concert at the Showbox in Seattle. It was awesome....except I did feel a little old (although we did get carded...okay EVERYONE got carded). We arrived before the doors opened at 6:00, we had dinner in the bar, there were two opening acts and Caillat finally came on at 9:00. It's a standing room only venue! I was pooped by the time we got on the ferry home.
I haven't figured out how to put music on my blog yet....I don't even know where to begin to figure it out. But I'm sure you can figure out how to listen to Colbie Caillat...a relatively new voice that I just love. Both of her cds, Coco and Breakthrough, are filled with wonderful songs. I can listen to them over and over.
Here's Linda and I waiting to get in...

Queen cards.

I picked up some cute Mrs. Grossman's stickers at Paper Zone in Seattle and used them in some fun cards. I don't think my friend who is so into whipped cream checks my blog, but the first card is for her November birthday.

How poorly I drank of it.

I picked up this bookmark up at Peter Miller Books in Seattle...

So appropriate!

Feeling like fall.

This is the view from my kitchen sink. The picture really doesn't do it justice...the colors are just amazing. I feel like I've been too busy to enjoy it all though. This really is my favorite time of year, but I'm overwhelmed with STUFF....from housework and taxes to teenagers and trying to budget with not enough money. Work was really slow today so I came home early and have thoroughly enjoyed this bonus time. A little cleaning, a little blogging and a little baseball playoffs on tv. =) I am walking around the house in polarfleece! It's freezing and I'm trying not to turn on the heat. It is definitely feeling like fall.....

Time to start prepping the garden for winter.
The crows are happy that I haven't cut down all the dead sunflowers.
