Snow Day

Celebrated Crystal's birthday by heading up to the mountain for a long weekend of snow shoeing.
The warming cabin we stayed the night it. It's a public building, so you never know what type of roomates you will have for the night. Beautiful weather, you can see the snow falling in the picture if you look closely.
Joei trying to lay claim to one of our beds for the night. The warming cabin has wood heat and an outhouse. A great way to relax away from the conveniences of modern life.
Lots of snow to melt for drinking/cooking. Stay away from the yellow snow.
A peak at the valley. The warming cabin is on a bluff looking over the valley. You can't tell fromt he photo but it snowed about of foot of powder each night. Hiking out was beautiful, but still a good work out even though it was down hill.
Joei did FABULOUS. She had hip surgery in Aug and is a real trooper. She put up with a 7 hour day of hiking just fine, though she did snore that night.
More to come...

Dreaming of spring...

I started our garden. I am so excited for my first potted garden.

I planted:
  • basil
  • tomato
  • broccoli
  • peppers
  • onion
  • zucchini
Bi-Mart was having a 50% off seeds sale, limit 6, so I'll have to go back to get more varieties soon. I'll let you know when they "hatch".

What? That's not right!!!

Ashland is all that!

We just got back from a fabulous weekend in Ashland. Scotty came up from Hollywood and I came down from Corvallis. We met up with our dear friends, Casey and Lauren, so watch a screening of an original hip-hop play written by Casey, Jon, Ian and their friend.

It was AMAZING! It was a brilliant blend of gospel meets rap, with muted earth tones splashed with vibrant red. Everything about this play (technically a "reading") was beautiful, even the ugly, creepy, and scary parts.

I wish you could have all been there to see it. And I truly hope opportunity comes knocking and it gets picked up by a producing company or something.

Scotty went back down to Hollywood for (hopefully) just a few more days. In the meantime, Case and Lauren are in town, so give them a shout out and/or buy them a beer (they are truly deprived in CA with a lack of 1) good coffee and 2)good micro brews!

Not exactly what I had in mind

I was super excited to get my new REI rain jacket in the mail. I bought it on Ebay for $15, what a steal....

...until I pulled it out of the package and the womens size 6 ended up being a kids size 6, bummer!!!!

Does anyone want a kids jacket? I'll sell you a nice one for $15!
