Ladies and gents I am getting spoiled! The weather has been nothing but amazing this entire month. (Funny, the one real rain we had, Michelle and I were in Portland at the zoo!) Aside from those days, October has looked like this
Blue sky, sunshine and warm… Continue reading “But that is not what the fuzzy bear caterpillars tell me”
Here it is, almost the end of June, and we are approaching the 3rd month here on the coast. And after three months, we are VERY much still enjoying life here. The pace is slower, working from home there is no commute and I am still discovering new things on a regular basis.

We are getting to the point where most of the work is done! It feels like home.
It has not all been work though, the bike and I have had some travels… Continue reading “Side roads….”

For the natives and long-term coast kids, this is probably nuthin. “Might have to put on the heavier gortex” they might even mutter. But for me I am excited! I love ocean storms!
All day I have been looking outside as I have been working, watching for any tell tale signs. At the end of my shift, something struck me as odd… Continue reading “Decisions Decisions…”
