On today’s menu: Pilot Rock via the PCT. It was a very tough but beautiful 10 mile hike with amazing views and wildflowers everywhere. It was hard not to stop every five feet to take pictures. 😃
Jacob qualified for the Oregon Invitational Math Tournament, and placed third in the state! He said the test was really hard. For him to say that means it *really* was hard! I’m super proud of my smart kid.
My new favorite thing to do is lay on the couch in the dark and watch projector movies on the ceiling. My little cube projector is super tiny, the size of an egg, but displays 120” in HD. Fun! I’m working on a hack to connect my Fire TV stick and Plex server for endless streaming movie options…
I’m drinking magical unicorn juice today! (No unicorns were harmed in the making of this juice, but some rhubarb, red cabbage, celery and cucumbers were)
Throw on some ginger sesame sauce and stir everything together until it’s unrecognizable. You know you want to.
This was seriously one of the most epic hikes I’ve ever done. Very steep, but so worth it. Get a look at these vistas!
I’m on the beautiful island of Maui, and all I want to do is take pictures of my food… But seriously, green smoothie tastes better here. It’s the bananas.
Sleeping in a bunk bed is like having your own personal fort. (And if you’re really clever you can rig your phone to watch movies hands-free. 😃) #bananabungalow
I do love my purple food… thanks @gailwind808 for hooking me up!
“Motion” test. This is actually a composite of over 200 stopped motion images to achieve the motion blur effect. Also experimenting with cinematic color grading, which looks just as great in still images as it does in film. 🙂
Went for a drive today to find and capture “motion” for a photography challenge. This challenge has been particularly irksome. The majority of what I did capture was the opposite, more like “still”. The mist was rising and catching the sunlight. The trees were steaming. Everything was glowing and quiet. Well worth the long drive out into no man’s land and getting stuck in snow (even if I still don’t have photos for the challenge).
Today I took a different trek, and promptly got myself lost in a tangle of trails. It was eerie, cold, and completely devoid of other humans. Haunted, I say!
I’ve been eating raw for the past three weeks now, and there is definitely nothing to complain about! Except maybe that I’m freezing after eating this.
Today’s fun food experiment: FROZEN clementine wedges and almond milk, blended. Super simple, but tastes just like an orange dreamcicle. I gave myself brain freeze!
This morning’s brekkie was a bit of an experiment. Raw quinoa and millet, soaked overnight and then blended with banana. I’m a believer, raw is better than cooked!
I need to live where lemon trees grow outdoors. The smell of lemon blossoms is like nothing else! Intoxicating.
Flashback to road trip 1997. Moving from Pennsylvania to Oregon, and all of my worldly possessions fit into my little two door Nissan Sentra. Good times!
Saying goodbye to my vintage fedoras. It’s easier to let go when you fully understand that experiences and adventures are so much more valuable than “stuff”. Stuff is just weight. If you can’t carry it, either it has to go or you have to stay. ? #minimalism
