Comfort Zone

comfort zone

I spent four (long) days last week
outside my comfort zone but having fun.
This pic above was me at about 1.30 am at the end of long day #3.

I learnt a lot, including that learnings isn’t a word.

fresh air

H on the beach

F on the beach

H & I have been bit sick :-(
so we jumped at the opportunity to get out in the fresh air today with a walk and some frisbee at Golden Gardens 

puget sound dance

some went a bit further with open air tai chi
(at least I think that’s what it is)

winter dip at golden gardens

while others were just ridiculous.
I mean, we’re 47°N and it’s February :-)

Waiting for buses

waiting for the bus in the rain

The timetable for my bus changed at the weekend, as too did the route, which made for a slightly confusing trip to work today (made worse by a substandard edition of TWiT).

The sunset in the pouring rain this evening while waiting
for the bus home made up for it.
Oh, and I got home to the news that Sammy the Salmon
has, most probably, saved the school.

Monopoly on a Sunday afternoon

monopoly madness

A blur of frantic activity as H strives once again to dominate
the family monopoly championships.

Math homework was never this fun when I was six;
but then I didn’t get math homework when I was six.

Not what it is

not cup holder

Smile of the day.
Warning sticker on a car door cup holder
indicating that contents in open cups may spill. 

IMHO depends very much on the driving style of the driver…

Team Zune

Team Zune

Music, news and opinions on the go. Cool.
Wireless sync when I’m suffering from a cold and banished to the spare room. Cooler.
Being part of the social? Haven’t figured that one out yet.

Also means I’m not nicking Fay’s iPod when I get the bus to work!

fun at the park

big tree

boy eating tree


H had a party so we headed off to the park for some excitement with the ‘big tree‘, ‘boy eating tree‘ and ‘spiral staircase of doom‘…

good cake

…followed by a pit-stop at the coffee shop for chocolate cake. Result.

bike man

cycle man

F is getting pretty speedy, the trick is going to be getting the training wheels off without him noticing…


snow man vader

snow for us means a bit of fun in the garden/yard with mr. vader
but snow also means I90 closed due to stuff like this and this
