I'm having an Affair.

That's right. I admit it. I am having an Affair. With Mr. Cello. I love him...hes wonderful! We have been seeing one another for quite a LONG time now. We meet everyday in my bedroom...
Hee. Hee.
Anways...seriously I love my cello. It brings so much peace and happiness into my life. I love its sound..the bow rubbing up against the strings. (eh. eh.) :)
Okay - so I am in kind of a strange mood today.
If you don't know what a cello is then now is the time to become aquainted.(I know my spelling is terrible.)
The cello sound is rich and deep and just magical. Every time I sit down to play I feel like I am rushed off to another world. Its so empowering.
Mmmm....anyways just wanted to confess.

#2, #3 and Fry Sauce?

Through all the Craziness yesterday I forgot to post my #2 thing I like about Oregon.
So here it goes...#2:
I love the summer weather. Its been in the high 70's to mid 80's for the most part. It cools down in the evening to the 60's ...mmmm....its been wonderful. Its amazing to have nice cool air coming in all day. No need for a/c - fans are working great for us.

#3 thing I love:
All the free things to do. Its great to be able to go out and do stuff with the kids without having to spend any money. Theres hiking trails in the mountains, river trails to walk along, a lake about 10mins away, parks, fishing, adventuring...its great! WE LOVE THE OUTDOORS!

A little side note : FRY SAUCE. I was shopping at winco today and happened to see this wonderful bottle on an aisle just at eye level. It totally took me by surprise! I was amaZed that a sweet little bottle from Farmington, Utah made it all the way to my winco in Eugene, Oregon. THANK YOU! to whoever made this happen. My husband and I are very grateful and excited to eat our fries with this.
An even littler side note: As soon as I got home I made french fries just so I could eat the fry sauce.

1. Thing I love about Oregon

This week I am going to blog about the 7 things I love most about Oregon...I am sure there are more than 7 things I love BUT since there are 7 days in a week lets just go with it.

NUMBER 1 (and these aren't in any particular order)
Look at the background of this playground. Do you see anything? well I will tell you TREES!!! coming from a place with nothing but dirt and cactus I am amazed at how many trees there are. I LOVE them. I think its amazing that this whole valley is just filled with them. I don't think I have ever seen so many trees in my entire life. I absolutely love looking outside and seeing these gigantic trees everywhere. Mmmm...its just so wonderful to have so many trees! OH! and did I mention how much I love the Trees. :)
