When we got home, folks were hanging out. We don’t have folks over too often but we’re going to make our house a more social spot in the coming months, I think.

It feels nice to have things happen in our home, but winter has kept things quiet and people have been in school and busy with projects, so quiet hasn’t been a bad thing.

I’m gearing up to participate in a Bowl-a-thon. To raise more money for it, I started offering 8in x 8in drawings in exchange for a $25 donation to them Women’s Medical Fund. It’s been fun cranking out a bunch of quick little drawings for a good cause. (psssst, you can still get a drawing by donating here: http://bowlathon.nnaf.org/nnafbowl/participantpage.asp?uid=5276&fundid=1410)

I also recently became a working member at the local food co-op, so now I have a shift stocking shelves once a month. It’s pretty fun and easy, it appeals to my organized brain, and it’s a good way to be more present in my neighborhood outside of the punk circle I’m involved in.

It’s started to warm up a bit. We had our first breakfast on the porch two weekends ago. Still chilly. We were jumping the gun a bit.

St. Paddy’s day brunch (though not to celebrate that holiday, just coincidentally.) Wow, I didn’t realize how far behind I had gotten on posting photos. I think this post is three weeks worth of photos. Normally I edit photos on Sunday nights, but I’ve been away a lot of weekends recently, and then I don’t feel like doing it midweek.

We recently did at interview with Joseph Gervasi for Loud! Fast! Philly! He put together a documentary of Philly show footage which is premiering at the Cinedelphia Film Fest coming up. As part of it, he’s conducted hour-long interview with all sorts of folks doing different things in the Philly punk scene. He’s posting one of those interviews every day throughout April. You can listen to them here: http://cinedelphia.com/cinedelphiafilmfestival/loud-fast-philly-audio-interviews

Rover’s newest apparel item. Good for short bursts of entertainment. Not good for anything else.

I’m back into a regular routine at my gym and it feels so good. I try to hit four days a week, five would be ideal but I usually end up wth a conflict at least one weeknight every week.

A few friends joined and Mikey too, so it’s really easy now that we all have the same commitment every day after work.

This looks so meaty! It was jackfruit.

Maybe a little preemptive for ice cream, too, but spring is in the air, so whatever.

My little nanny babe, Will, turns one today and couldn’t be any cuter. He’s so fun and happy all the time. He’s also started sleeping a record 3 hours a day, so he’s really on my good side. He’s always telling baby gibberish jokes and making himself laugh. It’s the cutest.

Out with my younger nanny babe, Asa, flyering for DIY PHL, we ran into Ciera and Aiden. Asa was having fun making sounds at them. He loved the attention.

April calendars for DIY PHL, done by Leah Girardo. We have a different artist do it every month. It’s always really fun and surprising to see what people come up with.

On Friday after work, Mikey and I drove up to Boston to visit Liz. We don’t often get time off at the same time and we always put off visits to friends as a result, so we decided just to make the long drive in a regular weekend. It was coincidentally the same weekend as Smash It Dead Fest, so we drove Greg up too.

And it meant Amy Leigh was in town from Toronto! She also stayed with Liz.

It was nice to see Liz and Kyle again and just chill out in a new place. We didn’t have any plans or destinations, so we just hung out and enjoyed the weather, ate good food, and caught up.

We were also able to meet up with two of Mikey’s Boston friends, Sheila and Roxanna.

More sunny cold weather ice cream. It’s soooo close to being spring. After this we ordered indian food pizza and watched movies.

We made breakfast in the morning, gluten free waffles with strawberries and scrambled eggs.

    Ramsey, we have to talk about gym stuff. I have been teaching myself to lift weights and I feel like I have so many questions.
    Also Franklin Fountains is the best!
