val and dad

This one is from August 9 2009. I was still living in Spokane. I went for a walk around Tubbs Hill in Coeur ‘Alene with my dad and step mom. I think I’d applied for the job I currently have but hadn’t yet been asked to interview. I remember talking to my dad and step-mom about my current read: The Hunger Games.

It is weird to think back on this time. I was on the cusp of huge change and exciting, and tragic, things were on the horizon.

Travel and Other Adventures


We went for a little hike around Tubbs Hill in Coeur d’Alene yesterday. It was nice. It was good to see water. The weather was beautiful, too. It was up to 60 degrees yesterday! Yay! Spring is here!

I’ve decided that I don’t mind the gray and the clouds and rain. I don’t think I even mind the cold all that much. It’s the snow, more specifically, the ice that I can’t stand. The problem with snow and ice is that I can’t go out and go for a simple walk and so I feel trapped inside my house. When it’s gray outside and there is no ice I can at the very least go for a walk.
