The Dog Days Of Summer…?

It’s not quite summer and Fred is not a dog. However, it sure felt like summer today and Fred was acting an awful lot like a dog! I spent a few hours of my afternoon sitting at my computer desk pecking away at the keyboard. After about 20 minutes of prancing around my desk, laying on my arms and literally nosing the thumb pad on my laptop {while I was trying to use the actual mouse…} he decided to lay by my feet. Like a dog. He gave me the stink eye every time I moved my chair! He is such a weirdo. Over the few hours of “cat napping” he took on the poses of “The Sphinx”, “The Exhibitionist”, “Thumper The Rabbit” and “Dead Cat”. His foot was comically twitching in his “Thumper” pose – I think he was out to get that poor teddy bear head! And all those GoPro parts laying on the floor? We had them out to GoPro the odd storm that came through early this afternoon. It was bright and sunny with fluffy clouds … [Click Here For the Full Story]


Saturday morning I met up with Lena and Diana for a run before meeting up with Tiffany and Lynne for brunch and wedding talk. {psht, Lynne has some wedding photos up!

Little did I know 5 miles of running  would require a recovery nap. Some times I kind of suck at wife-dom and I may have sort of fallen asleep on the couch as soon as I got home rather than lived up to my end of the deal. Oops. In my defense the guilt eventually kicked in and we did head up to Evergreen for biking. The plan was Three Sisters. I even checked out to be sure it wasn’t black diamond – only a blue square, we’d probably live. I mapped out the … [Click Here For the Full Story]

It rained. Last week.

It rained all day today… …or at least that was the case when I first threw these photos into an empty post. That was last week Wednesday. It is now Monday. Almost a week later. Every day seems to drag on forever but somehow the last time I sat down to write it was over 7 days ago. What the heck do I do with these long, painful hours in the day?! I have no clue! I might be a little off in my timing but last Wednesday it really did rain. All day long. It was a Wisconsin-like rainy day. The kind of day where you head out in a sweater and boots, maybe even a scarf if you are feeling sassy. Or cold. …the most rain CO has seen all year… All of my cute boots and cozy sweaters stayed in my closet. Instead of running errands while pretending to look cute I was stuck at work. For 12 hours. Wearing a polo and food stains. It was awesome. But not really at all. It was a long … [Click Here For the Full Story]
