Running on E

I am out of printer ink yet again.  This seems like something small and insignificant, but it is amazing the halt that it can put on ones day.  I print on average 55 pages of PowerPoint presentations for my Anatomy and Physiology class each week.  This doesn’t include the must be typed homework or study…

A Forgotten Pledge

I made a promise to myself that I would be more active in writing, but over the past month I have found myself consumed with trivial things and things not worth mentioning.  I lacked the creativity to just yammer on about random, seemingly pointless topics until now. Over this last month we have managed to…

Flowered Ink

I am left with a blank as to what I wanted to write to you about.  In a sleep state I woke glimpsing a blurry idea to fill your minds with in the morning, but for hours as I sipped my coffee I struggled with the search of this idea.  Haven’t yet to find it I have…

A Love Story

Today is my anniversary.  Eight years of marriage marked by a single day.  If we were to look beyond marriage we hit the ten year mark this month as well.  Who would have thought that someone like myself who never planned to be married until the age of 30 would be celebrating eight years of marriage…

Fording Rivers

Our first overnight backpacking trip was a success and my new backpack was wonderful compared to the first one! We traveled along the Otter Creek Trail, at least part of it. Let me show you what the trail looks like and you can see how easy it is to manipulate trail paths for your needs.…

Trial Trail

On Thursday we successfully completed our first trial trail!  We loaded up our packs, hit up the grocery store on the way out for some beef jerky and trail mix, and drove off to a local state park that offered a few trails ranging between 2 to 6 miles.  When we first arrived at the…

Camp Swinging

Good afternoon!!  I am going to start recording our newer hiking and camping experiences as we venture and branch out with trying  more intense camping with the girls. Today is shaping up to be a cloudy, humid day that awaits for bursts of rain to drain from the clouds.   Since we are stuck inside…

Running Waters

Hello!! It has been a bit of time, but I have been quite busy, plus a little avoidance of actually sitting down at my computer.  My internet has been all over the place for some odd reason.  I have yet to determine fully if it is the browser I am using or if something else…

Fresh Strawberries

We have had an extremely busy week.  This past week was the Strawberry Festival!  In this small town everything stops and pauses for nine days around this event.  The festival has food trucks, parades, eating contests, pageants, live music, crafts, kid events, contests, games and a carnival.  Each day of the week offers something new…

Summer Planning

I have done it again.  I fell off the side of the road and been letting the wind blow away all my thought bubbles of writing to you.  I have been occupied family wise. The weather has been insane.  Nice days and rainy days, but now that the weather is starting to warm up we are…
