remember the big sunflower plan?

This is all that is left of my "ultimate sunflowers plan" after "the thing we don't speak of" came out and destroyed them. One by one.
However. I cannot complain. I can only curse really really really loud at the top of my lungs as I witnessed the damage. (But I already did that.)

The ones that are there are in perfect placement to be able to see through the kitchen nook window when the blinds are open. so, my plan sorta worked. You can look through my yellow kitchen during the day and see big, bright sunflowers right out of the window.
ahhhh sunset
The sunsets. OH the sunsets.

Homeade tattoo's and a summer day.

I got home from work the other day and the neighbor boys were running around playing in the yard. They seem to like playing around my house and in my driveway, which I don't mind at all...infact I will usually go out and play some ball with them. Because my front yard doesn't have any trees or major landscaping, it makes for some very functional kickball. But they have to be other neighbor is elderly and will send her daughter out to shoo the kids out of the driveway even.

I was running around with Mutch in the backyard when I heard one of them say "HEY CHRISTINE! WANT A TATTOO?!" from the yard next door.
"PSHHHT WHHHEEEL YEEEEAHHH?" I hollered to them.
All three of them came over. Connor, Matthew and Michael. After all of the jumping and kicking and karate moves showing off their tattoos,Connor shows me all the colors I have to pick from. He's the artist.

"well, what shall I get a tattoo OF?" I asked.
"ummmm. How about a sailboat?, I can draw you a sailboat..oRRR.." he said.
"HM. well how about a bug."
"a bug?"
"yeah! I want a bug tattoo" I said.
"allllright. (thinks for a second) I'll give you a butterfly tattoo!"
"ALLLRIGHT! I'd LOVe a butterfly tat!"

It's a butterfly tat with legs and shoes, and it rules.

Later on, Matthew & Connor's dad (my neighbor) Mike was outside. I told him I got a tattoo and he got excited for a minute because I have been talking about getting inked. He saw it and was all: "THEY GOT YOU TOO?! where the hell did those pens come from?!"

totally missed good shots.

And, uh, shame on me for not getting any photos of my weekend. I just could not place my camera under the threat of sinking to the bottom of the river.

I'll usually hurt myself at some point.

I went on a wonderful canoe trip on the Allegheny River this weekend, it was a 15 mile trip canoeing about 5 miles the first day and stopping to camp for the night on an island (an island because there are BEARS- although it was soon realized the bears can actually walk across seven inch deep water to our island of safety). I listened in the tent with Mutch close by, as thunderstorms rolled through the Allegheny Valley throughout the night. It was heaven.

I had a great time and I was so happy to be there I actually drank a beer (or two) which I don't usually do. I'm just not a beer drinker. But anyway, I had to pee so bad and as soon as we got to a shallow spot with little threat of tip-over, I jumped out. As I took my first step I said to my friend: "so? can you see where it starts to get deeper?"
Even though I had on my velcro strappy sandals with superior traction, I busted my ass as soon as I let go of the canoe. I must've fell onto the biggest, pointiest rock on that side of the river. It hurt so bad it didn't hurt.
My friend replied: "I guess that's your answer."

Look at what a nice bruise I's actually contoured to the shape of that boulder. yes. it hurts.

I got that.


last week.

As my hairstylist was finishing up...
"awh. what do you think about bangs?"
"bangs?" she said
"yup. bangs. but thick ones."
"sure, bangs are good. have you ever had bangs with your curly hair?"
"yeah, I cut them myself a few times. They grow fast."
"alright, bangs coming up."
"blunt cut please...(she measures the sissors up) a little lower please, remember they'll curl?"
