upon returning from portland…

so i haven’t blogged in a while.  i was on vacation in portland.  when i got home i SHOULD have popped some pictures up right away, but i have to admit….i was sort of bummed.  i loved portland.  my hosts were so much fun and we squeezed so many great things in.  when i got home i was bored.  bored and cranky and contemplative.  “why the hell am i living here?”  i’ve been talking about moving for years. oh yeah: i have no money to move. so i’m stuck here.

now, that i got THAT out of the way i will say that i’m much cheerier this week.  it’s been a great three day weekend and i have spent some time setting some goals, which i will share later.  but for now i will show you some photos of one of my favorite places in portland, the japanese garden!

definitely worth the admission, which i think was 5 dollars.  i’m pretty certain if i lived in that town i would go all the time.  once we got away from the group with the loud toddlers it was so quiet and peaceful and ….healing.

i wish this was my back yard!  but moss just doesn’t like it here.

Plenty of moss in our town — how about moving to New Brunswick? And don’t worry about the money; no one has any here, either.
Lovely photos! No wonder you’ve been contemplative lately.

Beautiful! We have moss here in the woods but it’s been do bloody dry it isn’t very green.

I like that, “…, but moss just doesn’t like it here.”

They are lovely pictures and look like a wonderful place to spend a day in quiet contemplation. And in photographs!

I was starting to worry…Missed you and the kids. Glad you’re back! Love the pix of the Japanese garden.
