now to say we've been doing "nothing" is an exaggeration. sometimes while jarrod is at work i'll go to the free movies in the park with catherine, my new friend. :) we've had some pretty good times there. i enjoy those days. soon catherine and i will start re-watching LOST (yes!) but that's after i get her caught up on movies that she NEEDS to see. haha. so not all alone time is spent alone, but the majority is bc catherine also has an opposite schedule to mine. lame.
anywho, jarrod and i did do something exciting this past sunday. we went to McMenamins Edgefield (http://www.mcmenamins.com/54-edgefield-home) to see the Fleet Foxes! ahhhhhhhhhhh. awesome. fun. lovely. haha. the concert was part of the famous "concerts on the lawn" series for mcmenamins, so as my sentence states, the concert was on a lawn.
it was a really great experience since all i'm used to are indoor concerts. the weather was lovely, once we were sitting on the lawn in the shade of a giant tree. :) it actually got up to 85! and while jarrod and i were standing in line to get in, we were actually sweating! a first for this summer, besides the times we rode bikes on a sunny day. yeah, sweating, crazy, huh? (i laugh at your constant 100 degree weather back home. bwahahahahha!!!) back to the concert: it was very laid back, maybe bc the music was is so mellow, maybe bc of the venue, maybe both. anywho, it was really nice to just sit there and listen to the music and relax. i really enjoyed it. :) i liked the people-watching and being mellow, and not getting stuck behind some tall guy so i can't see the stage. very enjoyable experience. i should be going back to edgefield for The Decembrists in late august. i'm positive that will be a great time too. now i must add a fleet foxes song in here:
ah! so good! such a unique voice. fun show. :)
um....i don't think there's anything else i need to add...no big plans for the next few weeks, just the same ol, same ol. oh! except that daddy's coming to portland the last week of august. i'm looking forward to that! :D yay!
alright, i'll leave you with some lovely pics i took sunday morning after dropping jarrod off at work.
