it's spring?

understatement time: the weather has been odd. in the pnw, we're in the middle of an early spring. i am not complaining. i enjoy seeing bulbs at the beginning of feb.

it does mean, however, that leff and i should probably get a move on and plant our copious amount of seeds already. (that photo doesn't include the six varieties of peppers that i harvested last fall or the packets of leek and broccoli seeds that we picked up at the semi co-op on saturday. what? our secondary reason for moving to bremerton was so we could harvest our own veggies.)

since i'm coming out of my winter coma, i find myself wanting to explore more. that's how leff and i finally ended up at the pyrex museum.

it's small but mighty. jesus christ, but how i flipped out! it's now on the list of places to take visitors (regardless of their views on pyrex.).

here's the part where i mention that i love the downtown library.

and reiterate that i have spring fever.

here's a question for you. leff found a cute little pocket park with lots of moss and coromants.

this park also has a bunch of wild blackberry vines. my question is this: would you, if given the opportunity, glean berries from a city park? (i'm gonna' have to research whether or not the city uses chemicals on park properties. otherwise, i might be at the park this summer with some tupperware. i have a weakness for fresh blackberries, you see.)

in sad news, some friends of ours are heading back to boston this week. (well, *we're* sad. it's actually a good move for them and i'm glad that they're doing what they need to do.) still, they'll be missed. that certain someone should start the blog he's been threatening to start. my feedreader is waiting...

lastly, shed has informed me that "yo gabba gabba" is redubbed with british accents in the u.k.

(brobee drawing from stupid fucking awesome which i update daily, you know.)

i'm having a hard time imagining dj lance as british so i'd really like to see those episodes.

as for now, however, i'm going to get back to the depression era cookbook i'm reading. later, noodle hotdishes!
