It's July and I'm avoiding laundry right now

There's a big pile staring me in the face. I'm avoiding it. So here I am.

Not much to report on the anything front. My sister-in-law, Alison, and her two daughters, Ella and Chandler, visited us last week. We had gorgeous weather and really took advantage by hitting Snoqualmie Falls, Newcastle Beach Park, and then Pt. Defiance Park in Tacoma. Took a ton of pictures and generally had a lot of fun with them.

I've been spending a lot of my "down time" taking pictures and generally learning about photography and trying to improve. I've been doing the flickr thing and reading a lot. It's a ton of fun and I only wish I'd gotten into it a long time ago.

Bella has been great still. She's a bit of a poo eater at times, but if we clean up RIGHT AFTER, there's no issue. We start obedience classes this weekend and we're looking forward to that. She's been really good with us, but could use some polishing around the edges. Pulling on a leash is one I can't wait to work on.

I had a job interview a few weeks ago. I thought it went well but I still haven't heard back from them. I was gonna call them today, but forgot. So I'll make the call tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed.

Saturday night Lund Bros. is playing at the Sunset. We'll get about a 15-20 minute set as there are 6 or 7 bands playing that night. It's the 6th birthday for our friends at Unsmashable Records and they were kind enough to put us on the bill. It'll be a great gig to play and watch/listen and you bet your ass I'll have the camera out in full force. I'll get pix of everyone but us... :(

In the meantime, stay cool and hope that summer comes back soon.
