Shirt Making Saturday

Today I made this shirt. Actually, I started yesterday with the bleaching of the fern there... and then added the cat today. This is a gift for Kim, that Brittany bought and I painted on. There is a star on the back :)

Just last October

Just last October, I think it was before the elections or something, I don't remember... gas was this "low". I remember seeing it thinking "Wow that's so cheap!" because the norm had been for gas to be about 2.25 or so. Which was outrageous. I remember thinking " I shouldn't be HAPPY about gas being 1.98, when not too long before this 1.98 was an unheard of gas price" Well not too far past October, we sit here at almost 3.50 a gallon.

This is my fish tank, all cleaned up. Recently the plants got out of control and there wasn't a lot of free space. I like the plants to get really bushy for the fish to hide in, but this was just ridiculous. So I trimmed, and cleaned, without taking out too much of their ecosystem, and here it is. Looks pretty good. In the small tank we got 4 puffers and an angel fish, pics of those to come later. I'm waiting for those plants to grow too, because the puffers like that. Wasn't this the most interesting post you've ever read?

Solvang and Santa Barbara

Just a few pictures from the Solvang and Santa Barbara trip for Ross's Birthday. It was pretty gloomy in Santa Barb most of the time, but Solvang was suprisingly warm. We spent more time there than we usually do, it's usually vice versa. But we found the Chumash's give me such a weird feeling...

We visited an old Chinese restaurant bar that we went to accidentally about a year ago, so it was neat to revisit. We did some hiking, which is that bottom picture, a house from about 1902, damaged from fire, weather, etc... The guy who built it apparently never lived in it.

But meant to.

You could see the whole Santa Ynez Valley from up there, it was so quiet.
We also drank a little bit, as in the other picture.
