I'm still on the fence about Instagram. Mostly because I'm not sure I want to sign up for one more thing that will take up my time. I have lots of friends and family who use it so I know that I would use and like it...but for now I'm choosing the road of social media resistance.  I'm not saying never but right now I'm trying to keep my time open for blogging. 

So for those that want a glimpse of what I would post on Instagram, here are some random pictures from my phone that I took over the last few weeks. 

 A few weeks back we had some really great spring weather here in Washington. The Farm was exploding with many many kinds of Rapini (the immature flowers of plants in the Mustard family, which is a big family). Lately my favorite lunch has included Collard rapini lightly grilled in butter, topped with hot sauce.

Last spring me and my friend that helped me network my job on the farm, went out to celebrate by going out for frozen yogurt in high heels. This year we decided to do it again, just because, and we added another friend. We went out to a seafood restaurant and it was really fun.

I found some garbage stashed under the rootwasher at work Friday. I think it got left from a group of people that came to put up a display garden at our educational center. As I was hauling it over to the garbage can, I found a bag of Tootsie Rolls. Score!!! Kind of made my day. 

Those that know me, might have picked up on the fact that I am pretty nostalgic, especially with my childhood memories. Well finding these babies took me back to a spring cleaning event from when I was around 6 years-old. We had been moving around things in the bedroom me and my siblings shared, even the massive white earthquake proof bunk-bed. This thing was nothing but sturdy. It was less of a bunk bed and more of a indoor jungle gym. The fact that it belonged to my uncles, survived them, me and my siblings and then a few of my cousins is testament to that.  I don't know what happened to it but I like to think that it had a second life as a "BUNKER"....Hey brainstorm  "BUCKER BEDS!" That's how I'll make my internet millions!!! Any way back to Tootsie Rolls, I remember my dad pulled the bed away from the wall (as best he could) and he asked me to pick up the things that had fallen under the bed and you know what I found? Yup, a big old fat Tootsie Roll, a precious lost treasure from someone's Halloween bag that was at least several months old. I snatched that thing up and hid it from my sibs. I remember sneaking away to savor it. Well actually, I was too young to understand the concept of savoring but that thing was so hard I go a crash course. Good times.

I like your view on social media. I have also limited my use of fb and I don't use Instagram, well... Mainly because I have a Windows Phone haha. You have inspired to write on my blog more often. Great blog!
