We’re in Texas this week for a family wedding. The timing is completely wrong — we’re missing the nicest weather of the season in Seattle right now — but I’m trying to have a good attitude about it. We’re eating some delicious barbeque, for one thing. And the air-conditioned hotels and rental cars help me appreciate life in the green Pacific Northwest. Plus there’s nothing like a little time lapse to see how much the peas, nasturtiums, and just-sown beans are growing.
