That's what my Granny Kate used to say when we'd fall down or run into a wall or something. I hit a wall today before I got the prep done to show you the button info I promised Wednesday. Sooo...

...instead I'll show you some highlights from this past week or so. All these are less-than-stellar phone cam pics, so please excuse the quality.

A little over a week ago Natalie and I walked a couple of miles from her apartment down to the Tacoma Farmer's Market. There are several in our area, with the closest one to home happening on Saturdays and the next closest on Tuesday evenings. This one is downtown and closest to Natalie. I got some bagels (pumpernickel--my fave!--and some onion-garlic for Fred) and some huge green onions for the fish tacos I was making that night. There was a lady selling crocheted items. That was good to see!

Here is the view from the top of the hill that Fred and I trudge up several times a week. It's kinda mighty. Those are our shadows. Look at that lovely panorama. Mt Rainier is just to the right down there (or over there, I should say).

On Wednesday I finagled Fred into taking me for some Pho! I have been trying to get around to that since I moved here nine years ago. You see, we are rich with Pho and teriyaki around here. This chicken pho was outstanding! The best chicken noodle soup I've ever tasted!

And I have an update on the caucasian baby doll pile. Yep, moved again. I went to the craft store today for some elastic cord and thought I'd check up on them. Now I get it. They are for making tiny bride and groom outfits (note Itty Bitty Knitties book on shelf above). Doesn't that seem twisted to you or is it just me?

Okay, I'll be back soon with that button info. Have a delicious (and hopefully infant-wedding-free) weekend!
