Bowling With Beets, Anyone?

Well, they're not exactly the size of *your* head perhaps (as claimed at the end of my last post), but they're nearly as big as hers!

My, how our garden has grown!

I'm squeezing in one last post before I head off in tomorrow's wee hours for five days in LA. It will be the longest time I have been away from my Peeps... ever.

I know they'll have a blast playing and bending all the rules with Daddy while I'm gone. I know I'll have a great time rushing around helping my Dear Friend get ready for her lovely garden wedding. I know it's good for me to break away and stretch myself out of my comfort zone.

I haven't even left yet and I already can't wait to get home.

You know, I love my life so much, I honestly have no real need for a break except for the occastional overnight alone with the hubby.

Is that sick? I'm reasonably sure I'm not agoraphobic... Maybe I'm just freakishly contented?

Okay! Enough self-analysis. Here are a few parting garden shots until I return with stories of my foray into the tangle of humanity that is Southern California!

Pre-decorated Christmas tree?

Ooooo... beeeeeeans!

Homegrown, edible art.

Oh! And I still owe you the Big TV vs. Small Child post. It's coming.

Ciao, Darlings!

It's good to be so contented. We are so different though. Generally I'd rather be home than anywhere else, but I need a lot more alone time than I have been able to get since having a kid. So when I got to go to Seattle for trade shows, I was intensely relieved to get away and have a solo adventure. I have to say I didn't miss being home for a second.

I know that nothing should make me happier than to be with my guys, and I DO love them best of all people in the world, but I relish total solitude.

Have a great trip! You'll be back with all your babes before you know it!

And let me just say that your garden is GORGEOUS.

Holy cow those beets are huge! Mine are no where near that big.

I dislike being away from my family too, however, I have to admit that if Lawrence goes out of town for a night for work, I do enjoy it because I get full control of the remote and we girls let our hair down and have a good time. More than one night is too much though. I will, however, take a couple hours alone whenever I can, which is not very often.
