things i like, house edition...

first, though, i want to BE this guy - the KO Hip-Hop Cello-Beatbox Experience: Julie-O.

and who doesn't need a beatboxing chipmunk in their lives? this has not failed to make me laugh yet.

also? our new house!!!

i love the idea of handing cocktails and what-not through this little window. that's what i'm channeling here, at least.

my big sunday project: tearing up the turf (in the rain) to plant our ingenious (if i do say so myself) squash trellis area. we planted sunflowers in between, too.
