A Kiln of My Own

A Kiln of My Own


Posted on Aug 29, 2005

I finally made the leap and purchased a kiln.  Well, actually my friend, Diana, and I purchased it together.  It’s going to live at her house since my husband is afraid of fire or anything that might lead to a fire.  Now we can begin to make fused glass on our own sans class.  It’s scary and exciting all at once.  My other big news is that my cousin is coming to stay with us for about 10...

Geocaching


Posted on Aug 11, 2005

Geocaching is something my husband and I have been doing for a couple of years now.  The sport started in Portland (we live in such a cool town!) and now they can be found all over the world.  Basically it’s a treasure hunt.  You use your GPS to put in coordinates that people have entered on the geocaching web-site.  Using the GPS you find the hidden cache.  The usual protocol is to take something out of...

I’m home from my week long trip to Florence, Oregon.  The weather was great,  It was sunny, yet cool whereas we escaped from a Portland in the 90′s.  My niece, my husband, and I joined his family and friends camping on the dunes.  There were 13 of us total.  We did have fancy bathroom accommodations.  My brother-in-law set up a port-a-potty in a tent.  Let me tell you that was...

Well, I’m off for a week to Florence, Oregon.  The dunes at Florence are world famous.  As you can see from this satelite pictue, they are huge.  My husband says that there are 40 miles of sand dunes.  I don’t know how true this is.  My husband, his family, my niece, and myself will have a week filled of four wheeling, sand boarding, beach walking, and s’more making.  We will be camping...

Well, I did it.  I ran/walked the Run Hit Wonder yesterday.  It actually went much better than I was expecting.  The weather was great, sunny and not too hot.  My sister-in-law and three kids came down to cheer me and my husband on.  I managed to make 17 minute miles.  While it’s definitely not ideal, I didn’t come in last which was my greatest fear. Having the bands on the route was a lot of...

Today is my 5th year wedding anniversary.  I’ve actually been with my husband for 12 years now.  We took our sweet time getting married.  Our family had given up hope after 7 years.  Then I decided that it would be great to have a big party just for ourselves, it didn’t hurt that if we got married, I would be entitled to his free health care.  We did the whole thing ourselves.  We got married...
