Wondrous Art Wednesday


Posted on Mar 3, 2010

I learned about Lee Hazel last week at dinner with family friends.  When talking about family, they mentioned that their daughter-in-law is an amazing artist.  They talked on and on about how talented she is.  Well as you know, I love finding new art.  I couldn't wait to come home and google her.  Wow!  My friends weren't bias in their high praise.  She IS an amazing artist. ...

A Party for Padre

A Party for Padre


Posted on Mar 1, 2010

My Father-in-law didn't want to have a formal funeral.  His wishes were for family and friends to gather together and to have a party in his honor.  We did just that this past weekend.  We wanted to get past the holidays and to have enough time pass that this could truly be a joyous occasion. My husband, sister-in-law and I hosted this event at Silver Falls.  We rented the same lodge my sister was married...

Dharma Bums Reunion


Posted on Feb 23, 2010

This past Saturday was a very fun and packed day.  That night we saw the Dharma Bums at the Crystal Ballroom.  The Dharma Bums are my husband's favorite band.  They are from his same small town and were a big influence in Portland in the early 1990's.  It's been 18 years since they played.  The concert was a fun reunion and my husband saw lots of childhood friends.  The night was filled...

Vera to Vera

I've been running at least once a week for the past 6 months or so.  I'm gearing up for my first 5k race in March.  I'm so blessed to live close to Portland's waterfront.  We have a pedestrian/bike path on a beautiful urban route around the Willamette River that is very heavily used and makes the perfect sized run for me.  We begin our run at the statue of Vera Katz, Portland's beloved...

Christmas in January

Christmas in January


Posted on Jan 24, 2010

I just received my Christmas present from my cousin.  While it is a fair bit past Christmas, he was more on the ball than me.  He should receive my present in hopefully 10 days.    Now that holidays are over and we've all returned to work, life is back to normal.  That's why a package in January is so great!  It is the perfect way to get just a tiny bit of the holidays back and add joy to a...

Xanadu

Xanadu


Posted on Jan 23, 2010

Being a child of the 80's I grew up with Olivia Newton-John rollerskating her heart out in the movie Xanadu.  Yes, it's not the best movie ever, but it's campy and fun.  It was also the last film my hero Gene Kelly starred in.  Check out Gene on roller skates. Last weekend, I saw the play Xanadu.  It was part off our Broadway play season tickets.  I must admit, I wasn't terribly excited to...
