Taking root

This is very exciting because we are getting the backyard ready for hanging out. We bought one little elm (not pictured) and these two lovely Loblolly pines. 
These sweet guys will grow to 20 feet high and that's going to provide good shade in the summer. 
This one is a little yellow but we hope it takes root soon and enjoys its new home. Future project include a green house in this patio. We want to put cacti in there and use it as a separate living room in the winter. 
This fun grass will need to be planted. It looks dead but it will grow back soon. 
These cuties will grow very tall but very slowly. I love pine trees because the sound of the wind reminds me of the beach and the mountains. Places that are very far away. Evergreen trees remind me of the great Pacific Northwest, a place I call home. I haven't lived there in years but all my family still live there.

The crown jewel of the week

Over the top dramatic? Well, maybe. Every week, I look forward to Thursday because of Red Coyote, the local running store. 
They are the sponsors of the Pack Pint runs along with Coop Ale works here in Oklahoma City. 
Every Thursday night, we all run and walk 3ish miles and when we get back a beer is waiting for us. 
Afterwards, Tucker's, a local burger joint provides us with a free shake or beer with our onion burger. Today, I opted out of the freebie shake but not the Coop beer. 
Yummy burger with bacon. Today, we ran 2 miles and walked the rest. It was a refreshing run/walk but not extremely cold. Do you have anything that you look forward to weekly?
