This is kind of related to my trip to England, but totally not related at the same time. I wanted to share the first results from the Great International Terrapin Swap with you. Our first participant was Andrew from England, whom I met on Pinhole Day in Norwich. It was super fun to meet in person and watch him in action! Here are the results from our swap. You can see more over on my Flickr album.
And if you are interesting in participating check out Gitswap.org!
Seeing this today made me smile
Enjoyed a brief moment in the forest during a short run after work.
Best day ever.
Fun day exploring Cape Disappointment
More urban exploring today
Stopped at Ft Columbia on the drive home
Needing some motivation
I didn’t really have time to take a picture but I did it anyway
I love that these beauties grow wild in the forest here
Pinhole in the library!
Today is the first day of half marathon training!
Managed to salvage this dreary day by communing with nature for a bit
Running enhances my senses and I tend to see beauty everywhere, like when the light hits the ground in a certain way. I can’t help but stop to admire it. It messes up my time but that’s ok. This is more important than a fast mile
I accidentally bought all of these classics during a break
I downloaded this really cool app that serves bits of classics everyday
Getting around to this book finally.
I got to make art with kids today!
It was so great to see the mountain today
This was one of those beautiful weekends where I feel so lucky to live here
Foxglove filling in the clearcut
A lovely lunch
I had the forest to myself today. Just me, the bunnies, and the birds.
I HAVE A CHOCOLATE CROISSANT
Finally able to wear these lovely handcrafted hair sticks!
100 Happy Days is another thing I have been neglecting to update on this blog, so I thought I’d post a giant Happy Days post. As I was updating it I realized that today is my last 100 happy day!! What incredible timing! I can’t believe my last post in this series is a picture of my hair. I should’ve chosen a better subject but oh well. In a way it is perfect. This project has been great because it has helped me see the goodness in the mundane. Which is a lesson I have really needed to learn. I’ve really enjoyed doing this and am going to miss it! I am thinking about replacing it with another 100 days of blogging project for 2017. Maybe starting in July?
