Weekend Bits


:: I just finished reading the leaked copy of Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer (of Twilight fame). I came upon it by accident on Goodreads and then found a copy on her official website.

:: Chloe’s potty is finally getting some action. One poop (2nd time ever) and then later a pee (the first!) on the same day. Again with the disturbed reaction with the former, but I was prepared this time. Plus Daddy was here to add encouragement afterward.

:: Went on a nice family walk this weekend from the Wetlands at Durham Wastewater through Cook Park and Tupling Butterfly Garden to the Ki-a-kuts Bridge over the Tualatin River. Seeing the kayakers brought back memories of when David and I learned to kayak back in college. I’d like to do it again someday.

:: On that same walk David spotted this little praying mantis. Aren’t they so alien and fascinating looking?

:: Have you tried Diana’s Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas? I saw them at our local New Seasons and picked up a box. Had a hard time deciding between the milk chocolate with nuts or the dark chocolate dipped. Which do you think I chose?

:: Want to make your own frozen chocolate bananas? Here’s a recipe to try.

:: Angry Birds is fun. And addictive.

:: David surprised us with Zucchini Bread this week. He made a second batch yesterday. It’s delicious, and a great way to use up some of our garden zucchini. I’ll share his recipe in the next post!

  1. Do they allow dogs on that hike/walk on the Tualatin River?

  2. Yes, as a matter of fact Barkley was with us, and we saw lots of other dogs. You have to stay on the paved trail through the butterfly garden and through the wetland areas, but otherwise it is quite dog friendly. According to the City of Tigard, the areas of Cook Park, the linking Ki-a-Kuts pedestrian bridge, Durham City Park and the adjacent Tualatin Community Park form the largest open space and outdoor recreation area in the southwest Metro area.

  3. I really like your pictures. I was admiring the two shots in this post along with the fishing and flowers pics. We’ll have to try that walk with our doggie Mulder sometime.
