5 Reasons The Long Weekend RULES

5) I don’t have to look at painter’s tape for THREE DAYS.
Sidebar: this has been the project from hell. Talk me off a ledge if I attempt a painting project this large on my own again.

Paint project from hell.

Want to paint a stairwell, basement hall, bedroom and bathroom? Don’t.

4) NO WORK! MORE BEER TASTING!
Freelancing is 24/7. Shutting off my brain and laptop for the next three days.

Taking a much-needed break, 4 ounces at a time.

3) I get to hang out with these two lovely people.

Good food with good people.

2) Bike! Bike! Bike!

Without an agenda, we’re putting the “joy” in “joyride.”

1) SLEEPING IN.
Fingers crossed that kiddo sticks with the 9:45 wake-up call that has been once per weekend.

What are you looking forward to this weekend? Got any plans to get out of town?

Portland: You’re Just My Type

We are spending the holiday weekend bumming around Portland and the Oregon coast. Portlandia jokes aside, there are some pretty awesome things about this town, not the least of which are the vintage signs of current and defunct businesses. So I snagged a few shots to share. Oh, and I had to put one bird on it.
Enjoy.
