i (heart) google

i am pretty sure i am waaaaay behind the eight ball on this one, but i just discovered google analytics! totally brilliant!

i can see how many people visit here, where you're from, what type of browser you're using, everything! (ok not everything . . . just the important stuff)

my favorite part is looking at where people are coming from- brazil, europe, here- and laughing when i know who it is by where they're from (i keep getting hits from athens, GA- hi lucy!)

you can do it too- just get a google account (for free) and it walks you through the steps to put a tiny piece of code on your site. bam, you're in!

then you'll be getting lots of alaska hits i'm sure!

Lovely Planting

work gets a bit cold and sterile with all the computers and mice. so in an attempt to bring home to work (without covering the office with lime-pop), i've PLANTED the place. haha!

clipping from a neighbor
sweet basil from mom

plus, a small jade start from one at home and TOMATOES!
oh yes, soon i will be eating tomato and basil salad with wheatgrass topping.

did you know you can plant your tomatoes upside-down?
the things you learn!
