May 1st is coming! When I was growing up, we would celebrate May Day by decorating little baskets filled with treats, leave them on the neighbor's door, ring the doorbell and run. I can't wait to do this with my kids! Hopefully, our wonderful PNW weather cooperates. Otherwise, we may need to leave these cute little baskets for the wonderful staff at our elementary school. To learn the full meaning behind May Day, please click on the link below. For some basket ideas, click here May Day baskets.  This is a fun activity for you and the kiddos. Be creative and have some fun!   Wikipedia has the full meaning here, Wikipedia/May Day.

We were both thrilled to see Trilliums again poking through the green moss and ferns along the Lacamas Heritage Trail in Camas. It's our favorite local trail and we often take our Golden Retriever, McKinley, there for exercise. Truthfully, it's for our exercise needs too. The trail winds through woods, and open spaces offer glimpses of Lacamas Lake, Lacamas Creek, and in certain spots, Mt. Hood. Favorable scenery adds to the enjoyment of our workout. Seasons bring different forms of beauty to the trail, but lately, an onslaught of rainy weather and unseasonably cold temperatures has kept it somewhat bleak, and muddy. This week, a few days of sunny weather has helped, not only is the trail drying out, but the Spring wildflowers are starting to pop. Nature's gifts often stop us in our tra...

 Walking along Lacamas Lake the other day we saw a lively display of birds flying about, roosting on logs, and playing in the water.  Given the recent ice and freezing rain, we were impressed with all the activity. It was energizing, hinting of Spring's return. We were familiar with most of them, but one brightly-colored bird stood out - we couldn't quite place it, so we went home to do some research. (More on that later).What started as a serious research project quickly took an amusing turn. The lake is located along the migratory Pacific Flyway, so it's no surprise there are many varieties of waterfowl. But, reading the many descriptive names, we started noticing connections we hadn't seen before and couldn't resist a little wordplay. In other words, you might say the lexicology of o...

So, you have decided to sell you home and want to paint a few rooms. Before you grab that paint brush you might want to see what will help you get your house SOLD! Your colors are more important than you think. While some buyers don't mind picking up a paint brush to cover the dark green game room, others prefer neutral colors so they can move right in. Here's a few tips to help you get your home ready.  http://www.realtor.com/advice/home-improvement/the-colors-that-help-and-hurt-your-homes-selling-potential
