rain, rain, ... never ever ever go away

loving the rain so much. mark's collection tank has filled up so many times. the garden is looking lovely and green! our squash and zucchini plants have taken over the front yard. i think we will expand their growing area, as the deer leave them alone and they are much more practical and pretty than a grass lawn. the mystery pumpkin in the back yard has three 3!!! melons! wow. i don't know how those seeds got there, but i love it! mom thinks they may be spaghetti squash. makes sense, the compost had some of that in it.

we were going to hike this morning but mark ripped his shirt in the car (very badly) and then mom and dad called for us to pick up dd. had a very quiet night without her! anyway, the new plan is a family hike tomorrow. then workout. ouch. still sore from thursday. i love that feeling!

had some great vegan moments this week. had some really really bad ones. can't wait to say 'i'm vegan' and not lie. old habits die hard! jaime and i found some great vegan cookbooks and i have picked tons of recipes to try. i don't know how people can feel that it is so restrictive. if anything, i feel OVERWHELMED by the amount of great recipes i've seen.

bad spending this week... bought clearance canvas shoes for dd to 'craft up'. very cute, but probably very unnessesary! bought another awesome sports bra (fiona from sierra trading post). i keep convincing myself that i WILL need a jogging bra. i highly recommend this bra if you are endowed as generously as i have been (the jogging, veganism, hikeing, working out should unendow, right?)

still not skinny. still positive. still getting healthier.
