Everyone can understand that this a problem.

To call attention to this issue, events were organized around the world, including here in Seattle, where we participated in a little work party at the Olympic Sculpture Park.

while d is in chicago for the wedding of a dear childhood friend, i have several things on the agenda for this weekend. . .

1. My volunteer group from the Olympic Sculpture Park is going on a field trip to the Green River Watershed tomorrow. Yay nature walk with hilarious art docents (you know the type. . .)

2. Tomorrow night i need to finish my mom’s day gift, and learn how to knit this:

I bought the pattern from Cheezombie a couple of weeks ago but haven’t gotten into the knitty (ha!) gritty of learning it yet. I am terrible at reading knitting patterns, but the slug is just so darn cute! I have several friends who are expecting and i can just see the little ones slobbering all over this little guy. Perfect!

3. Have an awesome brunch Sunday with my mom, two of my aunts, and both my grandmothers. what a great way to celebrate [other people’s] motherhood. I’m bringing a sample of the compote for the crepes my dad and i are going to make.

Stay tuned for some opinion questions later in the weekend, i’ve got some big purchases to make and i’m terrible with decision making. . .
