The end of the weekend, and the last short week in sight. We haven’t had a regular 5-day week in a while.
Here’s the mountain man, playing with his birthday present (a couple weeks early!) He got a camera to mount on his motorcycle and bicycle helmets.It also came with a headstrap, which was apparently necessary to wear while putting together the camera.
The mountain man likes to lift weights, but 45-pound weights are expensive, so he decided to go buy a bag of cement and mix it in big bucket and put a PVC pipe in the center of it.
But to my amazement, it worked. The mountain man was quick to point out that my point of concern (one of many) about the end of the pipe being blocked was easily remedied by chipping away some cement from the center of the pipe.
And here, the mountain man says “this thing is 45 pounds, stop messing with the exposure! hurry up and take the picture already!” I reminded him that I did not ask him to hold it over his head. In fact I just asked him to hold it for a second.
One weight down, one to go.
On our drive home on New Year’s Eve we had to stop for gas in Ellensburg. In the few minutes that the car was off, ice completely covered the windows on the inside of the truck. This video is pretty boring. But there was ice inside the truck. And apparently there was frozen exhaust on the side of the truck. So you’ve pretty much just learned everything there is to learn by watching this video. No need to watch. But if you choose to, please excuse the sniffles. Gross.
It’s much warmer on the west side. Actually it’s not that much warmer. It snowed like 5 days ago, and the snow is still here.
And mama is stylin’. Pajama pants, I wish I new how to quit you.
Boy oh boy, look at the scowls on those babies.
The Pie is usually a huge smiler any time we’re outside, but after looking through the pictures, we didn’t get a single smile. I think her lips were frozen shut.
And the Pie fell asleep, and we kept walking.
We got home, and a neighbor pulled into the driveway behind us. He was dropping off a hat and matching blanket that his wife made for the Pie. Too cute! Look at the bonnet strings! Oh little Pie, please hold still for mama. But keep the tongue out. It’s cute.
And now it’s time to get moving on the week ahead. It’s gonna be a big week, I can feel it.
