In gardening news, we planted a rose.
In May the garden was starting to grow. We added paths between the beds and put in a drip irrigation system.
Now the garden is heavy with fruit. We've been harvesting: beans, tomatoes, corn, okra, herbs.
The sunflowers are so neat. We planted three different kinds. I really like this red one. We have one sunflower that is 7-8 foot tall and has flowers the size of dinner plates.
The front yard garden is a bit neglected but looks good just the same.
In travel news: not a lot of travel, but we've done lots of things. Including a day at the zoo. I took too many pictures, and here are a few of my favs.
Look at this loafer just standing around.
The flamingos were lazier than the bear and more vain. The stood around sleeping or preening.
The land lions must be friends with the bear and the flamingos; they also just stood around.
We went to a concert: the True Colors Tour. It's a gay pride thing.
It was hosted by Carson Kressley. He changed outfits like 5 times.
Here's Andy Bell of Erasure joined by Cyndi Lauper!
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
This tour is Cyndi's baby. So she came out to talk about equality and voting or something. I'm sure the website says what all that's about.
The B-52's !! Tony loves the B52's. They were a lot of fun. I also tried out my camera's video function for the first time during the B52's set. If I can figure out how to add it to this page, maybe I'll post it some time.
After the B52's was Cyndi Lauper. She was amazing! But by that time, it was dark and I didn't get one good picture. They ended the show with all the performers singing True Colors. *tears*
So back to the life changing part. I got a job! A real job, not that private-practice-working-out-of-the-house shit. Wheee! I'm a staff attorney at the Tulsa Law Office of Legal Aid Services Of Okalhoma. A salary, health insurance, an office with a window that doesn't look out on to the street in front of my house. And we are located in a really cool building: the Gillette-Tyrell Building also called the Pythian Building. It's on the National Register of Historic Places. My office is on the second floor, fifth window from the right.
Tulsa is known for it's art deco buildings. So I'm so happy to be in one. The lobby is all tile work. Floor, walls, ceiling.
My office. Not a great picture.
Another pic from that first week. It came with furniture. This is how it looked when I moved it. Luckily, I'm allowed to paint the walls and move in/out any furniture I want. Of course, it didn't take me long to start redecorating. It has a way to go, but when it's done, I'm sure to post more.
July 4, 2008, was our second anniversary. We went out that morning and bought rings. We are now unlawfully wed.
Not much to report on the knitting front. Tony is working on a rug from Mason-Dixon. I finished a BSJ. I'm sure we'll update a little sooner next time. yeah right.
