selling clothes

So I have a few cute tops that I'd like to sell. Nothing is fancy or expensive, just some basics that I want to get rid of. Like this super awesome top that when washed got shorter by an inch or so which for a long-torso'd gal like me just doesn't work. So, where do you get rid of your clothes? Ebay? Craigslist? Local consignment shop? Or do I just send them off to the downtown eastside charity like always? What should I do?

birthday month has arrived!

Every year I always wonder what the birthday plan will be. In the past it's been picnics, shuffleboard, and sleepovers. This year, I figured why not a bike gang? My friend suggested a make-out party, and while a teenage macking party sounds kinda appealing it also sounds kinda awful. Bike gang it is!!

So we'll pack up our baskets and panniers with picnic food, cake and beer and head out en masse around the city. We'll stop at beaches and parks and ride around and have fun. I'm excited because the weather looks amazing, finally. It's sunny and warm out today and it looks just as promising for tomorrow. I've got one cake baked and another in the oven (though because I don't have 3 cake pans of identical size, I'm baking in 3 parts. Yeesh.) A good reminder to buy at least one more 8" cake pan next time I see one at the thrift store. I'll talk more about cake on my food blog (surely). But I hope everyone has a great weekend and I hope that you can get in some picnics and bike rides this weekend. Happy birthday to me!!!

Gathering Paradise: Bill Murray Reads to Construction Workers at Poets H...

Love Bill Murray! And what does it mean that I loved the music in this clip a lot & that I got all teary-eyed at the Emily Dickenson poem? I'm a softie.
