Spring is in full force here and it's a month early. The trees are confused. The plants are confused. And the animals' coats are confused. There's a whole lot of shedding going on. Still we squeeze in as much riding as we can, even if it still has to be... Continue reading

We took a detour to an unbeknownst-to-me, highly sought after local event called The One Motorcycle Show. I’m not a bike aficionado so I’m sorry/notsorry to admit that I didn’t know what the heck I was going to. Apparently there were people there that actually traveled from out-of-state to see...

This dark and lovely gif by artist Nancy Liang* perfectly depicts the rain storms we've had running through the Portland area the past two days. As I type this it's still howling like a banshee out there. Last night it sounded like the whole house was going through a car... Continue reading

It’s been hard finding a chance to write. Things come and go in this business of “life,” but some things are constant. This dog of mine is a constant. He’s aging. He’s in his twilight years. His back hurts from all his intense, athletic activity in his younger years, which... Continue reading

Alternating between a heavy fog in the valley that rolls slowly up the hills and brilliant winter sunshine — it leaves a person not knowing quite how to procede. Continue reading

"I saw a crow building a nest, I was watching him very carefully, I was kind of stalking him and he was aware of it. And do you know what they do when they become aware of someone stalking them when they build a nest, which is a very vulnerable... Continue reading

I like the quiet time between Christmas and New Year's. It's like I can breathe again. Continue reading

It's all in the wrist. We like bright cookies! And we cannot lie! Makes your teeth hurt just looking at this, doesn't it? Wait. Why am I the only one left in the kitchen? Hello? Hello...? Continue reading

Ah. You thought it was an animated movie from the 1980s, didn’t you? No, it’s our annual “It’s Too Big. No, It’s Not!” event over here. Like many Americans every year we dutifully put a tree in our house. In the Pacific Northwest we are not short on fir trees.... Continue reading

Photo courtesy of House Industries, 2013. I'm feeling Swedish. I can't put it off for another year. I need to make these. (And I will not cheat and go to Ikea.) Continue reading

Today is the day that we all get together to eat. And eat. And eat. And give thanks. I love that. Along with Halloween, it's probably my most favorite of holidays (and I'm not entirely sure how that happened because I used to be a real Christmas freak). So here's... Continue reading

Thanks for the compliments, Lisa. Later I was wondering what would happen if I made a meatloaf in it. *laughs*

This Daughter got invited with a friend to hang out on Halloween which is good because she’s at the age where she’s too big to go door-to-door (even though she still wants to). As her evening wore on, that later turned into going to shoot zombies with air guns in... Continue reading

River Ghosts So, do you find this antique photograph as creepy as I do? Good. I'm glad I'm not alone. (Yes, I bought it with that original batch earlier this year. So much diversity in other people's discarded memories, right?) I could caption this one by saying something snarky like... Continue reading

Sorry for the radio silence. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy in a good way. And busy-in-a-good-way is good as long as it doesn't spin out of control, right? Lots of pretty colors but nothing that overwhelms. Just like autumn should be. Continue reading
