Soaking Wet

Soaking Wet


Posted on Nov 17, 2010

  I went walking again today.  Don't worry, I won't be blogging about my walks every day.  But a friend asked me to take some pictures for her, so that was all the inspiration I needed to walk in the pouring rain.       I was about 5 minutes into my walk when a car drove through a huge puddle and drenched me from the waist down.  But I'm made of hearty NW stock and used to getting...

Walking


Posted on Nov 16, 2010

  My Mom-in-law convinced me to walk a 1/2 marathon next May.  That seems like a long time from now, but I know it will be here in the blink of an eye.  I'll start a formal training program in January, but I figured that I should start getting out there now.  Luckily, I'm off my desk  job early in the afternoon which gives me plenty of time to walk while it's still daylight.   Today I...

Scared   My niece turns 17 today!  17.  Wow, it just seems like yesterday that I was in the delivery room watching her come into the world.  My niece is becoming an incredible lady.  She is smart, talented and pretty darn cute too.   Curious   This year she was bit by the photography bug and I couldn’t be happier.  Amazingly, she is taking photography from the same teacher I had in high school.  I still take...

Dharma Bums at the Doug Fir

We've saw them months ago at the Crystal...

Wonder Woman Painting


Posted on Nov 6, 2010

I was looking for royalty free images for a power point presentation I was putting together at work.  I did a google search for 'healthy women' and this Wonder Woman painting pop-up from this Flickr set.  Wow.  How lovely.  I have an affinity for Wonder Woman as do most girls who grew up with Lynda Carter's version does.  I love that this painting portrays my hero in very human way doing a...

New Banner

New Banner


Posted on Oct 30, 2010

I'm in the midst of creating a new banner which is part of my whole re-vamping my blog project.  I didn't realize that a new banner would be so tricky to think up and then create.  I think I have a pretty solid idea of how I'd like it to look and now I'm working on executing my design.  I'd like to incorporate my favorite mediums.  Metal is definitely a medium I love working in....
