Over the weekend (well, from Saturday August 17 to Monday August 19) Emee and I took a quick trip to our neighbor to the north, Seattle. The main reason was to visit her kids at a camp outside the city. It was a whirlwind couple of days, but we managed to make the best of… Continue reading Three Speed Bike Date: Seattle
Hey all! I realize that it's been a few weeks since I've had a "real" post here. What can I say, things have been busy. I've been travelling a lot and working on getting ready for craft fairs. I've been working creatively, but not in a blogging way. I had plans to do write ups… Continue reading A mid-December update
Hello friends! Yeah, it's been a bit since I've written something substantial here. What can I say, the last month has been extremely busy! June consisted of a bike tour, Pedalpalooza, and a bit of romance. As such, I didn't have a lot of "free time" to blog about it all. I do want to… Continue reading A brief update, since it’s been awhile

I've been in the midst of Pedalpalooza this past month, which means I feel like I'm always up to something, but don't have the time and energy to report it here. I've had eight pretty decent events, and I… Continue reading Not dead, just busy. (And there’s upcoming stuffs!)

The weather was good the whole time:… Continue reading A quick recap of my Seattle New Year 2016 trip
Okay, so the last time I left you I was wrapping up my first two big days in Seattle (and the small first night.) This left Thursday, my last day in town. Originally I was supposed to meet up with Doug in the AM when we'd ride to do a "coffee outside" type thing. (This… Continue reading Seattle trip wrap-up.
It's Wednesday night as my thumb hits a pretend keyboard on a smartphone. Just finished up two eventful and fun days in Seattle. The weather has been ok, mostly cloudy with some drizzle, high around 45F. Tuesday I hooked up with Robert/Spiral Cage and we had a fun ramble round the reaches of the city,… Continue reading Seattle trip update.
I spent my first five (2002-6) New Years living in Portland...in Portland. I never had a "great" one, though. Some were tolerable, some weren't. Maybe it's all the expectation on making the New Year holiday "epic"? So I decided to actually work towards this epicness, and started my annual tradition of going out-of-town for the… Continue reading Heading to Seattle for the New Year
