hello readers, all 5 of you.  it's time for my quarterly post.  finally, you say.  but, nothing super exciting.  just thought i'd put up a few thoughts.

the tasty thai, the little thai restaurant on the corner, is great.  we went there tonight with our friends, jess and ashlee anderson.  steve took some pregnancy photos of them (ashlee is due in 2 days), so they bought us dinner.  my, i love green curry.  i love curry, really, of any sort.  and that coconut milk soup (can't remember the thai name).  oooooh.  so good.

i made bread, three loaves within 5 days.  two white bread loaves and one whole wheat.  the white ones i tried first.  they turned out pretty good.  a bit dense, but tasty.  then, on tuesday, i did the wheat one.  but, i got even more adventurous, because i first ground up the wheat berries into flour, then made the bread.  and guess what, it's edible.  even good.  steve likes it.  next is tortillas.

fall is here, the leaves are turning orange.  it's pretty.

sage stands up on her own all the time now.  we're just waiting for those first steps.  also, today, for the first time, she tried to expand her palette, by testing out keene's dog food.  she choked on 2 pieces, but i had to wrestle the third one out of her mouth.  oh, and she blew spit bubbles all over her face today for the first time.  but, she wiped it away before i could get a picture.

we got our 4runner back today, after it being dead and in the shop for over a week.  many dollars later, it's great to have stella back.  she really is a great car.  268,000 miles and still rollin.

lindsay, not sure if you'll ever have time to read my blog again, but i've been thinking about you.  congrats and good luck.  being a mom is a trip (good and stressful, but mostly good).

ok, off to get the bike and trailer ready for a bike ride with julie tomorrow along the jordan river parkway.  sage will love it.  she loves the bike trailer.  i will love it.  i love bikes.  and bike trailer.  and spending time being active.  and being with good friends.

sorry, no pictures.  i'll try for that soon.  although no promises, we're cancelling the internet here at the house, soon.  experiments in doing more and being better.

Hey. I read your blog. In case you were wondering... :-) Have fun on your bike ride! Sounds perfect! Sounds like it is going to be really pretty! Hope all is well and let me know how the no internet thing is going. I would like to try it but think I might die :-)

thanks sarah! bike ride was fabulous, easy, but fun ride around saratoga springs. and the no internet thing... it scares me, too. everyday i wake up wondering if it's canceled today, and secretly hope that it hasn't yet.

i've started downloading lots of podcasts, so i have stuff to listen to while cooking or hanging out. we'll see how it goes.
