Road Trip Weekend!

May 6, 2013 - 10:01 am


Over the weekend David and I drove down to Eugene to visit our friends Tom and Tracy at McTavish Farms. I have a lot of photos to process, but above is a teaser. I also picked out the wood for my wheel, which will be built early in 2014, if the stars align. Walnut and Dogwood. I can’t wait!!

I got advice from Tom on how to pack a wheel for shipment, so I should finally be able to get this wheel that’s been gracing my living room since Madrona off to its owner.  Yay!

We drove home with a detour down the Columbia, then up through the Dalles and Yakima. David hadn’t known there was an area so similar to Texas so close to home. He was happy to see the desert and scrub.  I think he’s a bit nuts, but hey. We fit well together. 🙂

I’ve added Pilates to my daily workouts. 20 mins of PT, 20 mins of Pilates, 5 mins meditation. 45 minutes a day to better physical and emotional health.  Woot!

Tonight is the first Hack Your Clothes Night at Metrix. Gweep!

We also have tickets to Cloud Cult, one of my favorite bands. At the same time as the Hack Your Clothes Night. Dammit. David and I both missed the conflict until it was too late to delay the HYC night, so I’m planning to leave Metrix about 9 and catch the end of the show. I can’t miss it, nor can I bail on my new event, so I have to figure out doing some of both.

Today’s goals:

  • Plant the front bed with succulents- maybe. This could wait a day.
  • Read the rest of $100 Startup
  • Write up the notes on the ap David’s building
  • Illustrator class!
  • Shut down mini. It will come up one more time when we’re doing the Glacier backups, then be decomm’d.
  • Hack Your Clothes night!
  • Cloud Cult concert!

Aw, man! I hope there’s some time in the future where we can bump into each other again 🙂

And that’s a great picture.
