So, I wore my new jeans today, the ones that I had to buy in size 20 because the ones I bought in size 18 in the spring are still too small. But, these jeans are too big. I really just need a size 19 but of course, they don't make those! ... Read more

I was kind of disappointed in my visit to the RBG yesterday because their gardens didn't look as good as they normally do. It must be the wet, sunless summer we're having so I only took a few photos. Here are the photos that I took. The first... Read more
