Summertime, when the living is sleazy

Summertime, when the living is sleazy

Fun with cloud shapes: what do you see? I see the Flavor Burst I'm gonna snarf in Portland tomorrow! 🍦
Hey blog! Mr. Baby is in his baby bouncer next to me on the floor while I type this. We’ll see how long it lasts…(do I say that every time? I think so).

#throwback: a street performer in Times Square, 2015.
For no particular reason at all, here is a street performer from our trip to NYC back in October 2015.

The graduate! 🌺
On Saturday after I got off work, we drove to Portland to celebrate my beautiful cousin Erika’s graduation from nursing school. She is 25 weeks pregnant, and looks radiant.

With my beautiful cousin Erika, who just graduated from nursing school.
She had a luau in her front yard. It was mostly family–her mother and one of her brothers, her mom’s boyfriend and his sons, her husband’s mother and sister.

Mr. Baby cuddles with Aunt Kissy @dubtrance 💕✨✨
But of course we couldn’t make a trip to Portland without picking up Christopher!

No trip to Portland would be complete without a stop at Voodoo Donuts! 🍩
We spent the night at a Red Lion, and on the way out of town we HAD to stop at “Voodoo Doughnuts”, of course. Mmmm.

Inside Voodoo Doughnuts yesterday. I got "gay bar" and "triple chocolate penetration" (who only gets one donut?).
I got a “Gay Bar”–a bar doughnut filled with cream with vanilla frosting and a line of Froot Loops on top, and a “Triple Chocolate Penetration”–chocolate cake donut with chocolate frosting and chocolate cereal on top. YUM.

Love these shiny neon flowers in my neighbor's yard. 💖
The dogs stayed with our favorite boarder, who we just learned is moving houses and won’t be able to board them anymore. Dammit.

The "Endless Summer" hydrangea is beginning to bloom.
In the meantime suddenly it’s HOT here. It’s supposed to get up to nearly 90 today…gross. I have the baby dressed in a sleeveless onesie with crabs on it and after this typing, I’m going to take him for a nice cool air-conditioned drive to get him to nap.

💜💜💜
And even though it’s 10 in the morning, I may just have a popsicle.

Maggie dog says, "Happy frickin' summer solstice." ☔️💦💦💦
Of course on the day of the summer solstice, it still looked like this! Look at poor old Maggie dog.

💜💚🌿
I pulled up a ton of these big funky green plants earlier this year and the ones I missed blossomed…foxglove! Whoops! Maybe I’ll remember next year.

Floral present from Joshy 🌻🌻🌻
Joshy bought me flowers. Just cause.

At the beach with my mens yesterday. 🐳
Baby’s second trip to the beach…no falling in quicksand this time! Score!

My water dogs. 💦
We may go again today. What else do you do when it’s grossly hot? Get wet!

Seaside flowers.
We live so close to the water. It’s nice.

Bear Cub's favorite activity is standing on the shore and attacking Maggie when she comes out of the water.
Happy Cub!

Summer weather finally here! 🌈🌞🌿
I even broke out Ye Olde Rainbow Hat. I’ve had that damn thing since I was about 21.

This is my kind of weather. 🌞🌞🌞
Too hot for black dogs to walk in the afternoon–Josh took them for a 9 am walk today.

Friday night with these fellers. Crab cakes, fresh corn, and "Scratch". 🎧
Friday night fun with baby. Yesterday an ice cube in a snack bag kept him entertained for at least 30 minutes.

Happy Pride weekend, Seattle! 🌈💖✨✨
It’s Pride Weekend! I’m always a little nostalgic for the parade. Maybe next year.

Kind of obsessed with these strawberry Mexican Popsicles 🍓🍓🍓
Current obsession: strawberry Mexican popsicles. SO GOOD.

The thigh's the limit 💥
This is my thigh. I don’t know why. My oh my?

This morning at 4 am while I lay awake, sweating, I thought a psychedelic alphabet adult coloring book was a great idea. What do you think?
