day 3649: finally flying the kite aerial photography rig!

a little over a year ago i thought about getting into kite aerial photography with odin and almost exactly a year ago we beta tested the rig and took frida goes for her first ride in the galaxie 500 in search of the wind. and then we waited. and waited. and waited for a non-stormy […]

day 3606: 6 seconds of 10,000 hours.

a few months ago we got odin an hockeyshot extreme passing kit so he could practice his stick handling and shooting skills over the summer. now that the weather is warmer we can put it on a piece of plywood so i don’t have to listen to him shooting in the house i’m going to […]

day 3505: hanging out with the cosmos organicos garden collective contemplating probabilities.

exactly one year after the fire at the organic valley headquarters, we re-opened the rebuilt section of the building. hurray! and a few days after that cosmos organicos garden collective was in the garden preparing beds and planting. it’s great to get out and get your hands dirty and even more so when you’re doing […]

day 3558: two birds in the hand…

…are worth four in the bush?

day 3558: and yet still more hockey.

the regular season of hockey ended and ouru local arena is in the process of taking down the ice but the fun never ends for us! while we’re not doing The Neverending Hockey Season again this year, odin is going to a seven week bluedevils AAA hockey development camp, so we get to drive an […]

day 3557: attempting to teach frida to not eat The New Girls.

after we sent the last flock to a nice amish family we thought we’d get some new chickens soon but then frida came into our lives and we decided a new puppy and new chickens was a bit too much to take on at the same time. so we decided to wait until spring had […]

day 3529: sort-of slowly learning to play as a team before the state championships.

i enjoy sitting in the penalty box. it’s easy volunteer work – you just open the door when a player gets a penalty to let them in the box and let them out when the time is up. hearing the coaches interact with the players offers a unique perspective on the game. i can’t imagine […]

odin wuz here.

a mouse randomly moves around the house to this spot and that spot. next to the coffee pot, or the water filter, or the radio, or the tooth paste tube. it’s been happening for longer than i can remember. i think it’s odin’s funny way of reminding us he was there and thinking of us […]

day 3499: yet another exciting round of The Dictionary Game before bed.

me: “what do you want to read before lights out?” odin: “the dictionary!” we take turns giving each other random words and time each other with a stopwatch to see can find words faster and then read the definition. it’s a fun game and with almost every word both of us learn something new. he’s […]

day 3486: The Hockey Life.

after playing offense and scoring a goal, odin is back on defense while playing against la crosse who they’ve beat once and lost once in overtime. “maintain your self control.” easier said than done! as one does as a hockey parent, i sat in the opponent’s penalty box. it offers a great view of the […]
