hello today

This moment reminds me of a recent stop travis and i took as we got lost somewhere off highway 5, searching for a perfect yoga stop.

My darling is embarking upon a brand new career of bicycle building. What a perfect city he chose for us to rest our heels. This has led to fits of day dreaming about a cross-continent bike trip we will take, bike mechanic tools in one hand, camera in the other, and yoga all the way. Canada to Argentina and everywhere in between. Then perhaps catch sailboat home. Perhaps I should become a sailor to engineer that part of the adventure. {more details soon!}

I spent a lazy weekend practicing with our fancy camera... learning to love the Aperture - focused setting (if that is what it is called!) I do have the manual, but haven't peeked at it in a while.

It fills my soul to dig in the dirt, playing hide and seek with big fat earthworms. Phoebe quietly joins me at my side, curious for a moment, then silently moving on to a sunny spot to warm her fur. That's Jenny in the stripes, she joined me for a little photo session in the backyard.

I planted strawberries, chard, dill, cilantro, carrots, turnips, arugula, wildflowers, cucumbers and zucchini. Yum!

  1. Ahhh, great selection of plantings! I've got the same minus the turnips!

  2. alice, what's the camera y'all are using??

  3. Nikon D50 I believe. Trav bought it last year. I am saving up for a new lens!
