I had so many gorgeous pictures of wildflowers and butterflies, but I liked this for remembering our hike to the summit of Mary's Peak and the Meadow Ridge trail last night.

Haven't had any caffeine since Friday morning. Made some chai today, but Ididn't use my usual Red Label tea from the Indian grocery. I used some decaf.

George and I picked Jennifer up at 3:45 am this morning to take her to the airport so she could fly to her six week summer adventure in Southeast Asia! We are so excited for her!!!!!!

Celebration at Novak's

Celebration at Novak's, originally uploaded by carolfoasia.

I've always wanted to go to breakfast at Novak's and dropping off Jennifer at the airport at 5:20 am afforded us the opportunity to go by Albany at 7 am, right when Novak's opened for breakfast.

This is "The European" - eggs, Kielbasz (Kielbasa in English) sausage, spaetzle pasta, green peppers, onions, and that BIG buttermilk buiscut (I only ate about 1/3 Katrina and Susanne. Aren't you proud?).

Topped it off with some Nuri Chai tea.

Paul was busy downstairs for most of the day, and he came up to show me the result. I think it is pretty good!

This will be an "artsy" summer as they are taking a video production class through Corvallis Community Television and a Realistic Drawing class through Linn-Benton Community College. Very fun.

George went to check into his hotel room for the research trip, and they said he was the "Guest of the Week"! They upgraded him to the jacuzzi suite with a really nice food basket!

I am so sad I wasn't with him!
