a belated happy mother's day to everyone! mine was pretty close to perfect: my mom was here, along with my dad and one of my two favorite bruddies. m and bean made amazingly delicious vegan pumpkin waffles and fruit salad for breakfast, there were plenty of dogs around, and the weather was perfect. we got our dumpster on friday (!), and we put david and my dad to work this weekend, helping us fill it up. on saturday we loaded in brush, logs, leaves, and assorted yard crap which has been lying around back there for years. m and david also dragged all the fence parts blown down by last month's storm out to the street for this week's bulk pickup. yesterday we added random weird trash found in the garage and basement. there are few things in life more satisfying than flinging trash into your very own dumpster, let me tell you. although now it looks like we're being evicted. i'll take a photograph, you'll see.
we also got to the beach twice this weekend, cause it would've been mean to make david fly all the way up here and then force him to do nothing but work the whole time. friday night we took a picnic to kettle cove, and saturday we went back with dogs and a frisbee. after mom, dad, and lulu went home on sunday, we went up to wolfe's neck park for a walk and to l.l. bean for david to buy himself some outerwear.
