this crazy week............

well I knew it would start crazy because after the trip suddenly it was Monday again. whoosh!  everything went smoothly enough this week. classes Monday and chest day at gym after work, then when I got home couldn't wait to start putting my plants into the ground in various places... Tuesday also good, but I made the decision to NOT go to the gym and stay at work to get papers graded, the ones I hadn't finished on the plane. that way when I got home I could play in the yard more. ha
Wednesday, also good, handing papers back, went to gym after work, swam laps, worked legs, drove home and then..............
while in the left lane halfway through town on the highway, my truck suddenly just quit. the engine just shut off.  I coasted along back over to the right lane and with the truck in neutral tried to start up again. it tried kicking over but would not start back up. ughhh. ha I called the tire place near me where I always get an oil change. they gave me a number of a tow truck and they were there within ten minutes. $70 for that. left my truck there and walked home (it's blocks away).  This morning my parents came to pick me up and take me to work. ha! i was lazy getting going this morning, and then my parents were a bit early so only one bowl of cereal, not two. :(
the tire place called later to say it was a bad inertia sensor near the fuel pump?? and the only one they could find was in TN to replace it. that means MONDAY.  my buddy Scott was waiting to hear if he'd be picking me up from work or not, so I called and let him know. I planned to get a rental car from Enterprise. I'd scheduled a 3:30pm pickup from work, however they never came, I called the actual local place who informed me that my location at work was outside there pick up zone, the lady on the phone center did not mention that at all. I wasn't happy, but I found a friend who was on his way home and in the same direction. The Enterprise guy was going to find me a closer place to pick me, but I explained I needed to come there since I lived north which would be easier for the drop car off etc.. well anyway, I have a rental until Monday, so yeah, I'm ready for the weekend, but won't be driving much anywhere. ha. I did not get the extra insurance so i plan to keep driving down to here and there only. dinner plans with S and his hubby B tomorrow night, and my vet friend will be driving her and I to Stillwater Saturday to a nursery we go to every year, this year she'll stock up, I wont' get as much since my big Portland weekend HORTLANDIA experience. ha ha.
bring on the weekend!
I'm also considering a trip to DC next all maybe? the guy I met a year ago, our second "date" here in OKC lives there and he didn't come home for Easter this year so maybe if I'm in DC we can meet up again.  Also Mike wants me to visit CA and/or Mexico so that also on the list. :P   work work work play play.ha

portland pics..........


Portland wear................



I wore the first outfit to Portland and had the rest packed in my carry on bag. I packed another carry on in the bag with tape and packaging etc for the trip home.  This worked well as I was able to use the larger carry on as my check in full of plants on the way home and the smaller one as my carry on with clothes and everything else on the return flight.  first photo is my new Sanuk's that go wildly well with the Norse Projects super comfy fleece ad the my standard jeans and plaid shirt.  Once I'd arrived in Portland and chilled at the airbnb a while, I showered up and changed into the second photo, It shows the marginal blue sweatshirt I got a few weeks ago from Norse Projects.  I'd made plans to meet a college friend who lives on 31st and Alberta, we had dinner and caught up for about 3 hours?  the next morning I wore the third pic, but I wore a solid long sleeve tshirt to the plant sale, and only later in the day when I left to run around Portland did I put on the striped shirt, again something new from Norse Projects and it fits perfectly for my longer narrow frame.  it was a joy to run around Portland with layers and jackets as it was still cool and spring like. had the best time!  Coming home on the plane just same stuff, jeans, the solid long sleeve shirt mentioned earlier and the slip on shoes and fleece.  clean underwear and undershirt of course. ;)

is school out yet?.................


Portland day 3 (last Sunday)....

I was up SO late Saturday night, well maybe 11:30pm and I really had to make myself stop talking to my host Saturday night. because like I said I will talk non stop when I'm that tired and up later. whoah.
Sunday morning I woke up by 8am  and caught up online emails, got dressed and went downstairs for breakfast and then to start packing up all my plants. I had some small boxes that fit into my luggage side by side. I took most of them out of their pots, shook dirt off, and wrapped in a wet paper towell, then saran wrap. puzzle pieced them all together and got most everything packed. I left a few behind that I had picked up at a grocery store the day before.  I didn't want my luggage (my favorite Monocle/Porter weekender) to get messed up being checked in, so I had a sort of Mexican style zip up plastic woven market bag over it. worked great!  by the time I finished 930 or 10 or so, I got all my things ready down stairs and ready to load up. then I went and sat back down in the kitchen at my laptop and also to write a few post cards.  My airbnb host was in the kitchen also making some deviled eggs for his family thing.  I asked him why he wasn't wearing an Easter suit and tie. ha ( you know how hot muscle guys look suited up?) anyway, he had on a nice pair of nicely fitted dress shorts and a polo. damn his ass in those! I mean the view while I was facing the kitchen on the opposite side of the table chatting with him, the view from behind or side view, both sides. This guy can't stay single for long, come on all you outdoorsy triathalon fit gay guys in OR, find this guy! 
while talking about stuff, I mentioned again my friend W from the night before and it turns out they work at the exact same school. no way! ha so we were saying what a small world etc.  I appreciated the conversation. his eyes and smile so nice. I know he was being kind and hospitable as an airbnb host but still it was good conversation.  he was unsure of what spice to use on the deviled eggs since he was out of Paprika, ha so he went with something allspice instead.  Guys with a calm serious nature drive me crazy sometimes (in a good way). My personality is such that I just want to talk all the more and draw them out. sigh... I know he's not all work and super dedicated training, because I noticed a lot of beer glasses in the cupboard and a lot of frozen ones in the freezer. good to know he can work hard and play hard too. I'll definitely recommend his place as a good stay for airbnb. I had planned to leave a little book behind just for kicks since I'd bought a few at the store the day before. but I couldn't figure out how to leave it in the room for him to find and then since i had it downstairs and he was upstairs at some point, I just left it on his fridge to find.  I figured he keeps things in such order he was sure to notice and find it. 
I let by 11 to return my rental car and get to the airport for my 130 flight.  It was a simple last trip. just head east on Columbia Blvd and turn northon 82nd to the airport, but along the way I thought, hey I need to gas up this care, then I thought oh, I'll just turn south instead on 82nd into the city and find a quick gas stop. wrong! ha ha.. 82nd south turned into some major highway and when I exited it turned into another highway, and suddenly I was slightly panicked ha and freaking out and lost. ha ha I saw a 122nd st exit and got off. thank goodness for Mt. Hood so I knew what direction the airport was in.  I drove into a gas station, yes! gassed up and asked a guy there who said, just keep driving on this road and the next few lights it hits airport way. whew! returned my car, to airport, on the plane and off to Salt lake.
I sat by a window graded papers and re watched "Fantastic Beasts....." again , dozed a little. sat by some lady who read a book.  I was surprised to see Salt Lake City, my first time, and the size of the lake(s). wow!  on the way home from Salt Lake to OKC, I sat next to this tall lanky built guy, an oil worker out in Sayer OK from Boise ID. he had been there ten days visiting family, friends, and his teenage kids.  He has some nice big hands, a harley cap on, some random tshirt and jeans. bearded scruffy and actually nice looking in a way, he played a bunch of those candy whatever games and such on his phone most f the time, later we talked quite a bit and he mentioned he didn't like flying at all.  I asked him about Boise and he really went on about how many people keep moving there to live and how awesome it was with so much outdoor stuff to do all around and the rivers, and as he explained all the geography of the city and all the rivers and the state of ID he used his hands to draw a map on the back of the seat in front of him pointing where things were and went.  I figure as an oil guy he knew a lot about geography and such?  He showed me a pic of a deck he built around his place in Sayer on his phone. as soon as the plane landed he was gone! had anoterh 2 hour drive. ugh. 
I came home and unpacked everything and CRASHED into bed. 
whooshs, what a sweet wild wonderful weekend. I loved every bit of it.  I hope to get back and drive around and hopefully if it's another off and on rainy day, see lots of everything, and hoepfully get outside the city to the trees and hillsides and nature all around. I even googled community colleges in Portland the next morning.ha. til next time! :)

how am i not myself....

2nd day in Portland

well the time zone change had me waking up pretty early Saturday morning.  I wasn't too sure about the host of my place because while on my computer Friday I just sort of noticed some girl walk by with a back pack to the back room. I couldn't decide if it was a friend or gf of my host or whether he'd come in the night before etc?  I was up by 730 , after blogging and checking some special things online which always helps me fall back asleep ;). got up and dressed and downstairs to eat a couple of bowls of cereal as I researched exactly the roads to take and places for breakfast and decided on a cafe on Denver st in the little downtown area of the neighborhood, next showered and dressed and was out of the house. I had chosen that area of Kenton since it was just south of the EXPO center.
stopped at the diner and couldn't decide between the scrambled eggs with ham, feta cheese, and mushrooms or the pancake with poppy seeds and almonds. so I just ordered both. ha. what a big ole breakfast yum! I was full and didn't finish the pancake or the fried potatoes that came with the eggs.
I got up to the EXPO center by 9 and was about 9th in line and every minute about ten more people got behind us. all of us in line began to chat about what plants we were looking for and what we were growing, and then when they found out I was from OKC, we discussed weather this year and what would grow etc.
ten oclock!! doors open and we were in,  I can't say it was any help getting in line other than having a clear path towards the tables for a quick scan of plants, but it filled up FAST and we were all walking up and down aisles dodging everyone etc... they have a holding area so as you fill up a tray with plants, you drop it off and then fill up another. ha I got 3 trays filled which condensed to 2 really when I was finished by 12 noon.  scanning and making sure I'd seen everything, man it was so worth it. got some nice plants! a lot of things you just don't see online for example sangisorba 'Squirrrrel' or ligularia 'Garden Confetttti' . I was thrilled to get my 4 starter plants of Michhhauxia Tchihhhatechewii, a biennial that won't bloom til next year, its second.
took all my plants back to the airbnb and to the back porch, relaxed and caught up online some. My host had messaged to check in with me and say that he was out at a river w friends the night before and coming home that afternoon... I changed into something nicer to run around town in and to wear out later and googled some lunch places, i was looking for pizza.  I left and started driving west towards some main road and drove by this beautiful park! whoah, it was a square section of town all super tall trees, dense and so dark within, there was a park inside and trails. man i loved it! I got so hungry i ended up just stopping at an Arby's. all the kids there were super friendly and talkative. I splurged on a chicken bacon cheese sandwich and curly fries with mayonaise and ketchup and a coke! ha things i never eat or drink. fun :)
made my way over to another nursery, Marbott's, that I wanted to check out north of town, and I'm glad I did because I found a variegated bears breeches plant that I'd never seen before.stunning stuff, trust me. ;)
eventually I made my way back down south MLK with the goal of finding the broadway bridge, took me a while of circling around and this street and that and then, the bridge! I was crossing the bridge. what a beautiful experience every time going across and back that river into downtown. I had 3 goals, the Powells book store, the pioneer square, and Canoe home store.  I ended up at Powell's books first and had a great time checking everything there and the books and gifts, found the graphic novels sections and found  a lot of Glen Baxter books.  He is a surrealist comic that cracks me up with his bizarre random sense of humor. I got a book I hadn't seen before and another to leave at the airbnb for kicks.  also a very cool t shirt and some postcards to mail to friends. next I walked around the area a little bit, went into the Patagonia store jsut because it seems that's what everyone wears in Austin. ha ha. (I'll stick with Norse Projects or Topo Designs for outdoor gear though :P). walked around a while more, then drove over towards Canoe which unfortunately closed at 6 right before i got there. ha.  I walked around that area a bit too just because so much to see and people watching and the weather was awesome. I was sort of waiting to hear from my friend W about if we were having dinner or just drinks and she hadn't contacted me.  (she'd been working on a project all day for grad school).
I drove back down near the pioneer square but traffic was so crazy and no parking anywhere, and eventually I drove by the square and it seemed blocked off for construction anyway so I just kept driving West on burnside as far as it would take me. W messaged she was on way home to change and would contact me before leaving to the place for drinks.  I knew W lived up the hill but didnt' remember where.  I ended up way above the city in some neighborhood, beautiful houses, and stopped to take some photo of downtown below. continued back down the other side of the hill and end up going back towards burnside. I was getting hungry and thought the Zupan store looked like a good stop for food.  went in and shopped around, then bought some buffet food and sat down to relax and check my phone.  Zupan is sort of like a fancy whole foods?
I hadn't heard yet from W so started going towards 23rd st. she mentioned it was on 23rd and Lomac which there was no Lomac on the map so I just drove around.  eventually she gave me the actual st Raleigh, I drove over and met her. bingo! went to a bar near there and had a beer and we caught up on everything with her kid, who she's dating, church views, my single life, my happiness, how I could pray for her, encouraged her with school and parenting. (she's taking counseling classes which is teaching her all about herself growing up, amazing). and she encouraged me to try dating/meeting someone etc etc. :)
I left by 10 I think and I was feeling BEAT from being up early and from the time zone change etc. got home and my host R was home. I heard him down in the kitchen and as I needed to put some apples from Zupan in the fridge, went down to meet. damn! nice looking guy. his eyes so nice with a scruffy beard.  He pretty much looks like the kind of guy that is in super shape and might have a man bun, but he's cool enough not to have that. short hair, just right.  basically a guy in flimsy shorts and a t shirt - we introduced and made small talk about my day. I babbled on I'm sure like I do when it's that late. I mentioned how impressed I was by his schedule on the fridge of his week filled with work and training swimming endurance, running etc.  turns out he was training for another triathalon, it was paying off.  kept staring at him and chatting him up ha. but my energy level was gone and I was ready to crash. he mentioned a few times about his "former partner" which I figured could mean a guy or girl, but after he'd said it the second time I figured it out, and then eventually in our conversation he said something like " it's either cuz I'm gay or because....." something and that's when I was like, yes. dude can't be single for long though, his pecs, legs, ass. I mean his calves? whole package. basically he was a college soccer guy that kept up with training and has a really fit body. I couldnt' figure out what was up after meeting the gay couple on the plane, what was up with all these nice butch sporty gay guys in Portland and how do I get one? ha !! turns out he is a PE teacher at an elem school and loves everything outdoors, hiking camping rafting training etc.
I'd peaked into the garage Saturday wondering if anyone really lived there since the house was so minimalist clean. heck yeah the dude had a couple bikes hanging, snow board, outdoor gear, backpacks, a kayack, an iron, ski boots, and several pairs of shoes (size 11.5 I just happened to notice) on rack (he takes them off in the house, I tried my best to do the same but when I went in and out was a difficulty)
He mentioned he liked travelling and so I asked him where and he said Italy, Spain? maybe, and Guatamala, so I mentioned I'd been to G also, we talked about his language classes there and how he'd play soccer with the guys there etc. tons of fun, I tried some of my Spanish, but I was trying to hold back not talking too much and eventually said good night so I could CRASH!!!

Portland.................

Hello from Portland.  What a great time of year to be here as its the bursting forth of spring, the trees are all just turning green and the spring flowering trees are in full force. flowering fruit trees and magnolias and some sort of rose tree I've seen all over town. I forget how much I love the way Portland is like driving through a never ending neighborhood of houses. such a great old city.
 first of all, a pretty nice busy week, working and getting things done around the house.  had all my papers graded ready to hand back to students Tuesday, made time for gym after work Monday and Tuesday. relaxed in the yard both days after getting home of course. Wednesday I left work early for a dentist appointment to gave the perm. crown affixed.  I want you to know I'm not a crazy person, but after morning classes, I ate my lunch as usual in my office and then locked the door and completely stripped down and changed clothes. ha instead of the shirt and tie that I wear on Mondays and Wednesdays to work, I wanted to show up at the dentist in a more casual look this time, so I changed into jeans and a long sleeve crewneck shirt and converse shoes.  This meant putting boxer briefs on because although i prefer boxers for easy access with slacks at work, I prefer the support of briefs with jeans. anyway, the same amazing hottie dentist greeted me and another female dentist assisted. we chatted a bit as they removed the temp and put in the real one. I mentioned my trip to Portland and at some point explained the reason was that I had to use Delta credit and travel somewhere since cancelling my trip a year ago to DR. then he mentioned going, then I asked about if he spoke Spanish, he does and is going to Columbia this summer, then we talked all about places to travel in central america and he found it interesting I'd lived there and taught there etc etc.. anyway, so he's straight but very cool and the new crown fit comfortably and all was well. 
I got home early enough to grade some papers and setting out things for my trip.  Thursday went well at work and as I was missing a regular Friday meeting I had to get my part of stuff to do ready and email to everyone since I'd be gone.  (I also brought up a concern of the unit assessments we are designing being too complex and how quotation from the lit ended up in each assessments as default, We were including them as matching questions (title to quote) but then decided they should be short answer, and then it became too complex etc! I spoke to my boss about this and she agreed, so I'm interested to see what she brought up at the meeting and the outcome).
A co worker stopped in before I could run out after class Thursday at 3pm. so no gym Thursday boo hoo. but I was really glad to help her, an older lady who had questions about the other course I was designing with a committe the year before and her first time to teach it that way etc etc. so I left the office eventually and drove west of town to visit my folks.  They'd been gone for a week or more and returned the day before. I wanted to here about their trip.
My parents had been taking care of my aunt for many years as caregivers, and this was the first long away vacation they'd had since she passed away last year.  they drove to Augusta GA for the Masters. well my mom's cousin lives there, an artist with a home by the lake. He ha two passes to the Masters Golf event and so my parents went some days and then he and my dad went some days.  they loved it and went on and on about it, no cell phones allowed, the hats they brought back. my dad brought out a short sleeve golf shirt my mom made him by with the Masters logo on it, he was showing it to me and pointed out the price tag of $80 haha. he was just like WHAT?!?  ha ha, and my mom was saying he had to have that shirt for when he golfs etc and a souvenir and she didnt' care the price! they are so practical, ya know.  they also kept all their plastic cups with the masters on them etc. they were glad to be home and I was happy to see them having missed them.
okay now for my travel saga... Thursday night as I was leisurely doing this and that and getting packing begun, I got a robot call from Delta that my 830 am flight to Saltlake Friday had been delayed to 2:30pm.  with no word about getting to Portland and that they were working on rebooking me. So if I missed the flight to Portland then what?  I sat around for about an hour, thinking well damn I'll have all morning off to finish packing and will just arrive late night Friday I guess. so much for Friday plans.  then I started investigating online for other flights from Salt Lake, there were plenty but I hadn't been booked on any of those connecting flights...so instead I logged into Delta and it gave me the option of searching other flights.  I ended up rebooking myself to an EARLIER fligh at 5:50am. UGHHHH... ha ha, exactly what I purposely HADN"T chosen orginally. anyway, so I had to take a 550am flight to Atlanta (opposite direction) and then fly to Portland from there.  good news is I  arrived same time 12:15 to Portland. bad news is I had to get packing and ready to get out of the house EARLY. ha I stayed up past 10:30pm getting every last detail packed away (cuz my brain is dead in the morning I'd rather be ready to grab and go that early!). in bed alseep by 11am and up and awake at 3:30am.. breakfast, gathering stuff and to the airport.  slept mostly first flight. and sat next to a gay couple on the flight to Portland.
a cute darkhaired beardy and hairy guy in the middle, his hunkier blond shaved head bf in the aisle seat, and me by the window. they were a hottie couple but maybe that's just any couple under 30 these days. ha  I graded papers during the flight after watching the movie "Fantastic Beasts....." whish was awesome btw.  I chatted them a little bit before landing. they were both from that area (Medford and somewhere else) and lived in FL and were coming to visit their families for a couple weeks instead of going to Mexico like they would usually, diving and such.  I was sort of impressed at how outdoorsy they were talking about snowboarding or skiing while home in OR and diving in Mexico. really nice guys and they held hands during take off or just now and then the aisle guy put his hand on his or his knee.
I got my rental car, and found my AIRBNB place in Kenton, just south of the EXPO hall where I'm going to shop plants in the morning.  I showered and changed. checked things online and began driving around and searching Portland. I found two fish/aquarium stores online to sort of guide my adventure and I sketched out a few cross streets and plans on a piece of paper. I went to one, and then south on MLK all the way down to Freemont, trying to find the other near 43rd and Sandy Blvd. I got a little lost but drove through some amazing neighborhoods of old houses and great landscaping and flowers. the tulips are bursting all over here and it rained off and on. Eventually, as planned, I made it to my friend K's place at 4:30 near 31st and Alberta.  since I got there early I walked up and down Alberta street checking out the places and people and shops.
we went to eat at a new place called Wilder Bar Cafe which had the best food! the lettuce side salad was piled HIGH on the plate and the chicken sandwich with fruit mustard was YUMMM, I had ordered the roasted hazelnuts as a started and they were underwhelming. K said it was a new thing serving hazelnuts at places. ha ha. anyway we caught up thoroughly. she's been dealing with depression and therapy after surviving cancer a few years ago and losing her job due to taking off work so much after her psychotic episodes due to some bipolar issues set off by the chemo. that's the nutshell version. she's doing better now, her live in bf very supportive, and she's up for a new job fulltime at another clinic (she's a counselor, I think I mentioned before she used to work with a lot of the transgender community in Portland. she was the director of a clinic before having to leave recently so she's getting back into actual counseling now which is helping her too).
well after dinner I was BEAT!! I came back to my place after stopping off for some cereal and milk for breakfast (and some bananas) and man, my shoulders from carrying bags around the airport, and since the time zone was later, I was in a hot bathtub after taking an aleve by 8 pm and I think in bed and falling asleep by 830. ha.. zonked!  woke up at 330am and thought I'd blog all this, and then maybe I can get back to sleep a bit before getting up.
My plan s to get up by 7 am and get some breakfast and then get out. The plant sale is at 10am but I plan to get there before 9 to get in line, (supposedly there is a line to get in to get a better selection etc. I dunno. but I'll find out.) so I'm looking forward to a wonderful morning. I plan to be done by lunch time and then will meet up with a high school buddy W this afternoon and play it be ear.
have a great Easter weekend ALL!

beefy.............


x's and o's.....



but did you know she is Rob Schneider's daughter?...

a hundred things, not really...........

good morning! getting mentally prepared for my trip to Portland next weekend. (I hadn't realized it'd be Easter weekend when I planned thet trip, alas!) I've decided to go ahead an rent a car just so I'll have the freedom and ease of getting myself around. Alamo has one for $94 which is for 2 days plus fees. as I plan to pick it up at 1pm Friday and back before 11am Sunday. :) I'm looking forward to running around Portland a bit and shop around and sight see a bit.  I'm making plans with a friend from high school. i saw her last time in Portland too.  Saturday morning will be all about getting to the plant sale Hortlandia as early as possible and lined up to get in. ha
I figure I'll have all my shopping and researching done by noon and will be able to get out to the Farmer's Market to find something to eat and just to walk around (although rain is predicted all weekend).  Places for Friday or Saturday afternoon on the list are the Pearl District, Canoe home store, Powell City Books, and the Pioneer Courthouse Square.  It sort of depends on when my friends are available to hang out. I plan to see a college friend Saturday evening. She is the same one I just saw over winter break when we went together to Crystal Bridges in Bentonville, AR.
Anyway, the point is with the trip and everything, I really have to keep up with paper grading. I finished the projects turned into my online Mythology class yesterday, and this weekend I'll get through my English 2 papers that were turned in Thursday.  I want to get them back by Tuesday because I have English 1 paper being turned in Wednesday which I plan to grade as much as I can before the trip and probably on the plane there and back if I'm honest. ha
I'm sort of planning to go on the trip with no laptop next weekend. dang it I wish I'd bought an IPAD long ago and just gotten it over with already!! would be so much easier to travel with an iapd than this laptop.  I'm not bringing it because i want as much room to carry on a bag with a bag inside on my way there, and bring plants home in one bag either in my carry-on or checked in or both.
Had a great week, work work work, beautiful weather to enjoy outside each day after work. gym time, papers etc. last night met G and D, and Scott and B for dinner at Pizza 23 in OKC. and D's friend angela.  after dinner we all went to G and D's place to play Nertz, a card game. lots of fun.  It's funny how I didn't want to go at all and just wanted to come home and start grading papers, but afterI show up and participate and have fun, I'm always glad to have gone and gotten out  It did give me a reason to wear some new clothes as a practice run for my trip next weekend AND also I want to wear the same clothes to my dentist next Wednesday. ha ha! true.
today I plan to work on a project on the back porch all morning, pizza for lunch as usual , and then I'd planned to either work outside or inside grading the REST OF THE DAY, but a person from the garden club messaged to say we have a "steering committee" meeting today for the regional meeting our club is hosting this summer.  I never signed up for the committee but because I offered to do the table and also the program, I guess i'm included. it SUCKS! I emailed the lady back and said I'd be there for an hour tops.  I almost told her to make sure my part went first, but then erased it and just said I could only be there for part of it etc etc....
let's get on with it! Happy Saturday. :)
