catching up on kitsap

once again, many things have been happening and i've been taking my sweet time writing about them. in lieu of an apology, let's just jump into things, shall we?

the painting. (or, as i have referred to it many times in my head the painting.) the painting has come to a blissful halt. it's true, i still need to work on the game room but, for all intents and purposes, the inside of the house is now finished.

in other words, i painted the living room grey

and got the stripe on the stairs.

(this is what that part of the staircase looked like when we moved in. (full set here))

oh, look! stargazers!

have i mentioned my love for samudra yoga and coffee? (i'm sure i have. they're incredible!)

it should come as no surprise that leff and i were at their grand opening at the beginning of the month.

(seriously, if you find yourself in the evergreen park area of bremerton you should *absolutely* go to samudra!)

also in evergreen park (not permanently, of course) was this fire truck.

i think that it was a display for some local kids. whatever it was, it was hypnotizing. fuji and i watched it for about 15 minutes.

this next photo has nothing to do with anything, it's just a cute trailer in port orchard. how's that for a clunky segue?

moving on, pse has been handing out cfls left and right lately as part of project porchlight and rock the bulb. leff and i managed to exchange the incandescents that the previous owner of our house had left at the bremerton rock the bulb.

it was quite successful! here are all of the bulbs that had been traded in by 11:30 am!

what else? oh, yes! leff and i got a toddy coffee maker!

cold brew is deeeeelcious! i can't wait to try it with tea!

last saturday, we had our housewarming for casa rakkaleff. sadly, we didn't do a very good job of photo documenting things.

instead of regular name tags, we had mad lib ones.

(more here)

we were also able to add to the mustache guestbook. (although we missed several people. guess you guys have to come back!)

anyway, here's judystache.

i'll leave you as usual with three extra photos. cats!
