my new commute takes me through the edge of Seattle's International District. This isn't the greatest picture, but check out the cool dragon guy circling the pole on the corner!

sneak preview

our house is still very much in transition -- but here you can catch a glimpse of the drawers built into my closet, the shade of yellow we painted our living room ("churchill hotel hazy yellow") and the very nice job jason did hanging curtains.

scene from last weekend

what I love about this picture: computer, beer, paint card samples... and Jason frosting a cake!
