she’s a happy, happy puppy. especially when she’s waiting for food 🙂
we’re still harvesting the bounty from the labors of the cosmos organicos garden collective so frida had her first chance to survey the splendor!
you see this face? that’s frida being super happy that i won’t let her about and half eat all the bell peppers while i’m trying ot pick them 🙂
frida is still trying to figure out what that thing is that’s always attached to my face and occasionally pointed in her direction.
thanks to a long time reader who sent us a canon point and shoot, odin and i have a camera loaded with the canon hack development kit and a script that will shoot continuous interval shots for our kite aerial photography rig! but we’ve been waiting for weeks and weeks for blustery day without storm clouds to fly the kite.
i went on a 13 miles in stiff winds and thought it was finally a perfect day to try it out. odin was at hockey so he wasn’t going to be able to go, but i gathered up the gear frida and i jumped in the galaxie 500 and went racing to a nearby hill.
frida was very happy to go for a ride in the old ford and was particularly intrigued by the colorful kite.
but alas, by the time we made it out to the hill the winds had died down with the late afternoon sun just as we arrived. hi. ho.
i sure hope we get a chance take some shots before the snow flies.
and now i know frida is happy to along for the adventure!
we were going to name our new malamute puppy freki which was the name of one of odin’s mythological wolf companions. but the ravaneous namesake just wasn’t fitting with her cute and cuddly personality. and people would ask “you named her “freaky?” when they first heard her name. and odin said he wasn’t so fond of muninn so we thought for a bit and i said, “how about frida” which is an old norse name meaning “beautiful, beloved”.
we all agreed that it is a perfect name more befitting of our beautiful and beloved puppy.
