Houseplans are going to engineering and then to get permitted. Woohoo! Hopefully building can begin next month. :)
We went out to the property yesterday...
I'm a dork, I know. But there has been a distinct tree shortage in my life for the past 18 years...and so these things make me very, very happy.
Ok. So there's trees. You get it.
Here I am standing in my garage...
And I think Iz is in the great room. Not sure why we're calling it that. I mean, I am hoping it will be a great room....actually, it's the family room/den/dining room...kind of an open type thing. With doors leading out to a covered patio. Where there will be sipping of beverages while watching sunsets. You can even see Mt. Baker and the Twin Sisters. And my hot tub. YeeeeeHaw!
Ok, this. I am ridiculously excited about THIS. Here is the future site of my pumpkin patch. Not kidding. I spent an hour yesterday poring over pumpkin seeds on Burpee.com... and making lists. So far I have 16 different kinds of pumpkins I want to plant. Six. Teen. ha! Orange pumpkins, white pumpkins, pink ones, greeny-bluey ones, squishy flat light orange ones, warty ones, baby ones, gigantic ones...and gourds! There will be gourds! I can't wait.
There's also a spot for my garden...but somehow that's not exciting me like the pumpkin patch.
This little spot:
After much work and clearing... will hopefully be a picnic/camping/bonfire type place.
It was SO good to see Belle back in uniform and back on the court last night. They beat Meridian in three sets, and she played great! Love watching her kill that ball. :) We went and watched the soccer game too...good job Lions! They won 4-1!

Iz and I gave this show a try yesterday (watched it On Demand)...
I had some doubts...the commercials made it look like a junior high, hot body FBI sex fest. Disclaimer: there is one car scene...
BUT. It was not what I was expecting. Literally gasped out loud at least three times. In a nut shell: There's a bunch of New Academy Recruits at the FBI...you get all hooked in to their story lines. And it keeps flashing forward (and back) to a big explosion at Grand Central Terminal...terrorist act...3 months after they've graduated. It seems one of the hot FBI recruits is really a terrorist...hmmmmmm. But which one?
I will definitely watch it again. Again, totally not responsible for any future sex scenes.
Black List comes back this Thursday.... woohoo!
Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team is over. Moment of Silence.
Have a good Tuesday! Please say a prayer for Belle... her doctor's appointment for clearance is tomorrow morning. It's been 14 weeks since her surgery, and if she is not cleared to play, I honestly do not know what I will do with that girl. :( She will be devastated. She has had an amazing recovery. No pain, swelling, or any problems. And she is soooooo ready to be back. Here's hoping...
Little Miss thing got a 96!! Way to go Belle! She's already Googled...and the DMV is open on December 26th, so she will be in there getting her license....88 short days from now. :)
2. I'm behind on my lists....more coming soon.
3. It was a movie kind of weekend.
Iz and I went out for dinner for date night, and then to this:
And it was just what it should be...lots of action and hijinks. Tom Cruise is getting a little old to be hanging off airplanes, but oh well. Shelby wants a bass flute/rifle for Christmas. If you've seen the movie, you'll understand. Fun surprise, it was two for one to get in. Wahoo!
Went out for lunch after volunteering at the Bellingham Bay Marathon yesterday, and took the kids to this:
So. Good. I've not read the books...Ian has, but says the movies are WAY different. Can't wait for the third one!
4. Did you see the moon last night?
I was so lazy. Looked at it...oohed and aahed. Didn't take any pictures. Next one's in 2033? Sigh.
Thank you super cool photographer (Tim Durkan)...amazing photo!
