i almooooost picked this up at the gladstone but i choked. i can think of maaaaaany people deserving of such a fine gift. throw a gingerbread twitter logo and a properly formatted tweet and you’ve got something way better than one of those dumb cuneiforms.
if it’s still there after thanksgiving, i think i’m going to have to get it.
sometimes during the trip to the upper peninsula i try to imagine how many deer we must pass that are in the ditch, just out of sight. hundreds?
on longer trips, especially since we take frida mostly everywhere with us, we’re often wanting more space in the car. on a trip to maine we saw a car with one of these roofbags and it looked like it might do the trick; affordable, waterproof, easy to put on and take off, and made in the USA.
we’re dog sitting for an extended period of time so on this trip to the upper peninsula of michigan it made even more sense to try out the roof bag so we could have both of the dogs in the space where the luggage would normally go.
so far, so good, although the dogs are a little confused 😃
will our luggage be scattered all over US 2? who knows!
we knew things were going well, but it’s pretty amazing considering he’s still getting used to the concept of grades and tests. he’s very much enjoying the challenge and i’ll say once again that the great foundation he got from his years at the waldorf school is showing ( not just the intellectual foundation but the mental as well ).
back in southwest wisconsin. FIRST SNOW! we’ve gotten away with a relatively mild winter so far, but the november shorts running weather is probably gone for good. how much snow will we get and will our friend the wooly bear caterpillar be proven correct? time will tell!
truth be told, i didn’t get as much seafood as i would have liked but, still, thanks for all the fish! i truly wish i had more time to hang out with the many, many fine folks in the entire pacific northwest who i’ve come to know over the years. next time!
and yes, at this moment i am still obsessing about getting a shot of rainier AT SUNSET! FROM THE AIR! IT’LL BE PERFECT!
except i’m on the wrong side of plane. the view of the sunset over the cascades is a nice consolation prize.
it’s a cool and gorgeous morning in seattle while running around looking at sets and that means “the mountain is out” which is a regional euphemism that translates roughly to, “it’s sunny and clear enough to see mount rainier.” this is a relatively rare occurrence and having lived in the pacific northwest i can attest that it’s legit topic of conversation amongst locals. i’m not surprised to see there’s a “is the mountain out” twitter account, but i am surprised that it’s not more frequently updated.
i was quasi-obsessed with getting a great shot of the mountain being out, but alas, and it wasn’t the, ahem, focus of my very minimal time in seattle and i had to take what i could get. i missed several awesome chances while i was driving
