the relative calm before the... lack of a storm.  we were under a severe thunderstorm warning for about 3/4 of the day.  it rained, but the crazy held off.

liz's laundry

i havent been doing well with the summer of no pants challenge... cos a) too lazy to take pics, and b) i discovered SHORTS THAT FIT!!  so "boyfriend" style pants look like a big ole bag o frump on me.  shorts however, are ridiculously comfortable, not too short, and at the gap outlet atleast, super cheap.

cider and solar

probably one of the snobbiest/artsiest pics ive taken.  and i love it.  the blue and the patina on the truck with pv tech in the background, the dark clouds rolling in, and the green green grass.  that's pretty much vermont in a nutshell, epitomized at the cold hollow cider mill in waterbury.

afuera de mi casa

if you ignore that little strip of blue in the dormer and the sad sack shutters i still have yet to remove... my house looks pretty damn cute.  and the all the green stuff around it is doing surprisingly well.  to the left of the porch, the forsythia expands every year with a vengeance, and was only about a month late this year due to crappy crap weather.  to the right is apparently named fairy queen, and has delicate looking wispy branches that flower all of a sudden.  when the wind blows, little petal tornadoes abound.  the bush furthest to the right is a type of flowering quince that only flowered after i hacked about half of it away last summer.  it filled in quite nicely but is again threatening to climb right in my kitchen windows and will be tackled shortly.
