‘I hate running’ day

This morning I headed out to the trails for another long run. I needed 13 miles, but wanted to make sure to bump it up to 13.1 so that I got my Strava badge for the month. There was a decent sized group of people out for the run and we headed out promptly at […]

Flying Bantha Fairy

I had a two and a half hour staff meeting today, that involved a prop of a small bit of rope. After the interactive potion with the rope, I sat in my chair for the rest of the meeting and completely de-stranded the segment of rope, and then tied it’s core around it as a […]

Agent Carter

I always like the Phil Coulsen character in the Marvel Universe, and so when I heard that they were going to make an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show starting in 2013, I decided to check it out. My initial reaction was muted, as it really felt like the ensemble cast just wasn’t gelling right. There were […]

Time to lose some pounds

After the marathon last year, I started to relax a bit more with my eating and running. Ever since 2010 I’ve been in the mid 160’s for my weight. However, I’ve since packed on a good ten pounds and it’s time to get back on track. So today I pulled out the calorie counter, and […]

Spring can’t come soon enough

This weekend was supposed to include a 12 mile long run. TL;DR it didn’t happen. All this last week I’ve been battling a sore throat and feeling slightly under the weather. I managed to get my 6 miler and 3 mile run done, but by Friday night I felt that I needed some time to […]

Car saga

Because of various… incidents… by younger members of the family, we found ourselves in need of another car. So we picked up a used Honda. The hood ornament is iconic so I decided to make it the subject of today’s photo. I messed with Instagram filters to add some texture and give it almost a […]

Sharing some music

I have rather eclectic tastes in a lot of things, and music is no exception. In a previous post I talked about my friend’s music, which was rather quiet and peaceful, but one of the my mainstays of music is Folk/Bluegrass. Modern Folk/Bluegrass is full of a lot of really great artists, such as Trampled by […]

Beauty in wreckage

A week or so ago my step son cracked up his car. In the process of taking pictures of it today, I captured the following shot of some of the damage, including the bumper tied up with police tape. Slight bit of Lightroom processing to the shot.

Jaina the cat

Today’s creation is a photo album of a new cat that came to live at our house. Her name is Jaina, and so far Mimi has only swatted at her a few times (which is really quite good). Jaina is close to two years old but is only starting to get out of her kitten […]
