The Daily Pixel: A month of pixels!

So… I lost track of an entire month. Again. Oops! But as the photographic evidence below suggests, the month did, in fact, happen. So there. Enjoy an entire month of Daily Pixels.

#159- June 7- Rrrruffffff.

Fierce old man dog.

#160- June 8- Loving my new paint

Next time I decide to paint, I’m hiring someone. Or emptying the room first. Maybe both.

#161- June 9- The half-Dexter

So our giant old bed frame isn’t easy to move… so I painted around it. Talk about upping the complexity of a paint project and the amount of plastic swathing needed!

#162- June 10- Meeting the RV-1

At the Golden West Fly-In and Air Show, I got to meet the Vans RV-1, the prototype for the entire line of Van’s aircraft including T’s formation flying plane, the RV-4. I got to sit inside the cockpit and that plane is DINKY. I couldn’t even extend my legs completely.

#163- June 11- Summer means Little League

The second best part of Little League games (besides the unbelievably cute baseball players): Sno-kones!

#164- June 12- Happy gardenias

After a few years of pruning problems, I’m pleased to report that the gardenias are happy, happy, happy! (Now, stay that way!)

#165- June 13- All hail the burnt sugar

I may have to dedicate an entire post to this creme brulee, it was that good.

#166- June 14- Happy Flag Day!

And happiest of birthdays to my dear Alesha and Graden.

#167- June 15- Moose’s Tooth memories

We arrived in Alaska and promptly found sustenance in the from of this Moose’s Tooth pizza pie–half “American” meat and cheese, and half apricot/chicken, a strange but delicious combination.

#168- June 16–Cooper Landing, Alaska

A most picturesque dinner spot. More photos of Cooper Landing and Moose Pass here.

#169- June 17- I’m on a horse

Well, I was. We had an awesome trail ride in Seward. Photographic evidence here.

#170- June 18- Boarding a big boat

The Coral Princess in Whittier. See pictures of Trouble Taking a Party Bus AND mooses and bears.

#171- June 19- Gorgeous sunset.

We enjoyed a day of scenic cruising and saw the Hubbard Glacier.

#172- June 20- Glacier Bay!

More of the prettiest pictures ever, here.

#173- June 21- BEARS!

The best part of Skagway–bears! And the Yukon. And the White Pass Railroad. See more.

#174- June 22- Glacier Walking

Want to see a zillion phenomenal glacier pictures? I know you do. Click here.

#175- June 23- A birthday kayak adventure

Paddled the Tatoosh Islands on my 30th birthday. Too cool.

#176- June 24- A day at sea.

As part of the birthday splurging, T and I had the best massages ever. Sigh.

#177- June 25- Why my pants don’t fit. Again.

So, I may have had waffles and corned beef hash every single day of the cruise. I would say “But you can’t prove it,” but I’m pretty sure you can what with my pants barely fitting again. Dang it.

#178- June 26- Harvest!

Home from vacation to a yummy tomato harvest!

#179- June 27- Post-cruise detox dinner

This is what you eat after a week of indulgence.

#180- June 28- Oops, I forgot my picture!

Saw this on Facebook and it reminded me of living in Phoenix. Need tips for beating the heat? See here.

#181- June 29- Ha!

This magnet made me laugh!

#182- June 30- Birthday cupcakes!

Threw myself a little birthday party with delicacies from Icing on the Cupcake in Rocklin.

#183- July 1- Bounty

Happiness.

#184- July 2- Only slightly sinister

Goliath’s in his dark place because he really hates balloons. And I really love throwing (floating?) them at him. Because I’m a bad, bad dog mommy.

#185- July 3- Heirloom loveliness

Check out those gorgeous Cherokee Purples, my first heirlooms.

#186- July 4- Happy Fourth of July, I forgot to take a picture!

We enjoyed the most minimal of festivities because Mr. T decided to catch pneumonia. Boo!

#187- July 5- The bounty continues

I think my gardening friends find me rude for posting these photos on Facebook, but I can’t help myself. It’s tomato Christmas around these parts!

#188- July 6- Marvelous Mehndi

In advance of attending my first Indian wedding, I got to take part in a Mehndi night, where the women folk get a henna tattoo on their left hand.

#189- July 7- Blessings to Geeta and Max!

Having never seen a Hindu ceremony, I had no idea what to expect. It involved many sacred rites and rituals, pounds of rice and fruit, flowers, money, ghee, family and for about 30 seconds, me. I was one of four married women who got to whisper blessings into the bride’s ear. Such a beautiful experience!

#190- July 8- A homegrown salad

Three different types of tomatoes, lemon cucumbers, bell peppers and basil from my little garden.

#191- July 9- A drink I might hate

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with cranberry kombucha, an organic fermented tea drink. Well, apparently it’s popular now because both of my Safeways were out this week! So I tried something new… kombucha with chia, little seeds that are packed with omega-3s and antioxidants. But they remind me of tomato seeds which are not what I’m interested in whilst drinking a beverage. Hmm.

xoxo,
