I didn’t work today, so I decided to walk early to beat the heat. I almost stayed in bed with my cuddly kittens, but I got up and was walking by 7:15am. I’m so glad I did. It was cool, but by the end I was still a sweaty mess. The early morning light was really incredible. I need to walk more at this hour. I headed over the Gideon pedestrian bridge and up Taggart to 31st. It’s been awhile since I’ve headed east and it was a good reminder that I need to walk in this area more.

This kind of graffiti makes me sad. So pointless. I hope someone is able to repair Paul Bunyan. Previously, someone had drawn a swastika on his cheek, but luckily it was small and someone painted over it quickly. This is a much harder fix. The skate park is such a wonderful space and it’s maddening to see this kind of disrespect.

I want a pin pong table in my street.

Gnome Chomsky in the wild! I was all kinds of giddy seeing this. I’ve coveted this statue at Powell’s for many years. I’ve never seen one in a yard before. Very cool.

An entire block covered in rose petals. It looked magical.

Bachelor Buttons always makes me think of my mom. They are her favorite.

I stopped at one of my favorite houses and spent a couple of minutes hanging out with the chickens.
