This is my 200th post.
That's all I got.
Speaking of indifference, Bean and I went blueberry picking on Friday with the MOMS Club. The temperature had gone down from scorching to sweltering, so we decided to venture outside.
When we are at home, Bean is all over the place. He's walking here and there, he's talking nonstop, he's laughing at some unknown joke. But whenever we attend organized events (which is 4-5 times a week), he clams up and clings to his mommy. Not that I don't appreciate the cuddles, but I'm concerned that he's practically scowling in all the pictures. Which all but the last were taken during the 45 seconds he would actually let me put him down.
He thought the blueberries tasted gross, and he was more interested in dumping out the bucket ("uh-oh!") and trying to put the berries back on the trees. We ended up with so few in our bucket that the farm didn't even charge us for them. I only like blueberries if they are baked into a muffin -- with a crumby top, too, please -- so I was okay with that. But it's still important for my sanity for us to get out and about, and I think he'll eventually come around to my attempts at forced socialization, so we keep trying.
And if you'll permit me a bit of randomness, I'm feeling pretty cool (don't laugh!) and wanted to share why. So DH and I finally restored the flow to our Netflix queue by watching "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Which wasn't as bad as I had feared, actually. I absolutely bawled at the end, but I'm fairly sure it was in a good way. I mean, heartbreaking but tender, know what I mean? Anyway, we decided to finally dive into the television series "Twin Peaks," which we've been really curious about. It was filmed not too far from Seattle, certainly part of the draw for us.
We were so excited when we turned it on and immediately recognized much of the scenery! It was filmed largely in Snoqualmie and North Bend, and as I'm sure you'll remember, just last month we visited Snoqualmie Falls.
Here is a picture of the Great Northern Hotel from "Twin Peaks," borrowed from a really neat web site called In Twin Peaks.
