A Slice of My Life – Week 20

May 14, 2012

Another busy week in the Dana Treat household.  So busy that my Four Year Bloggerversary passed by without me remembering.  Four years!  I’m giving myself a little pat on the back.  Thank you to every one of you who has ever visited this site.  Especially those of you who keep coming back.  I truly appreciate you.

A teacher from Graham’s school sent me this shot.  That tiny little guy is making the world’s longest hopscotch game.

This is my kitchen sink.  I love it when it is super clean.

In other news, I got a haircut.  Bangs for the first time since I was 11.

At long last, there is good vegetarian food available at Mariner’s games thanks to the good people at Field Roast.  I got invited to sample the new options (great veggie burgers and three very interesting hot dog options), and take in the game as well.  Of course I had to bring my sidekicks.

Graham loved the moose.  Spencer wouldn’t go near him.

The real reason the boys liked the game – snacks.  That is Kettle Korn and cotton candy.  Spencer was fascinated by the fact that a guy comes around the stadium with bags and bags of cotton candy.  Originally I said no to buying it and then relented saying, “When he comes around again, we can get some.”  After enduring a solid five minutes of him asking, every 20 seconds, “Where is he?  When is he coming back?”, I went to the concession stand and bought some.  To shut him up.  Then I had to get up again to wash off his hands.

I’ve ridden a lot of ferries in my life.  Most of the ferry workers are on the gruff side.  She was the smiliest waviest one I have ever seen.

Taking a 7:55am ferry means coffee.  Fortunately, the coffee they serve is from one of the best roasters in Seattle.

Mother’s Day means Motherasana – the spring day long yoga retreat on Bainbridge Island.  This one marked our three year anniversary of doing these retreats together.

This salad had 3 GIANT bags of kale leaves in it.  It shrunk down enough to fit in a bowl.  I had high hopes for it, but it was not my favorite thing.

Flowers everywhere this time of year.  I didn’t take this photo but isn’t it pretty?

I love San Pellegrino.  And I love sunlight.

Going home ferry stress.  Will I get on or won’t I?  (I did.)

Mother’s Day picnic in the park.  Randy packed us a lunch on a lovely day.


  1. I commute to Bainbridge 2x a week and she’s my favorite ferry worker, you can’t help but smile back! Sorry your kale salad wasn’t fabulous, it sure looks good!

  2. Hummmm….. I’ve got a recipe for kale salad that was high on my list to try, but now I’m not sure I’ll bother

    lovely photos, your haircut looks gorgeous, made you look younger, if that’s at all possible, you already look too young to be a mother of two boys!

    Happy Belated Mother’s Day!

  6. I love the shot of the hopscotch game! And I totally relate to the ferry line nerves – I get them even when it’s pretty clear I’m going to get on the ferry but still that old – will I / won’t I get on kicks in. (And the bangs are so cute!) Congrats on 4 years of blogging.

  8. I actually really like the Field Roast sausages…they taste shockingly like the real thing and I love that salty element they give to just about any dinner. Plus they’re easy. So easy.

    How are you so adorable? LOVE those bangs!

    Happy 4 years, love!
