Today is the first day of spring, and a beautiful one here in Massachusetts. First job of the spring once the snow melts enough is to gather up all of the fallen limbs and burn it in the middle of the garden. So, that’s what mom and I are doing today! It also means hotdogs for lunch which o ate before taking a picture of them. They were awesome, Nathan’s, the kind that are longer than the bun….
Took this on my new iPhone from Verizon (yes I’m one of those people).
You can see it in an interactive 360 version at http://occip.it/pt3ye72t.
If you view the above link on an iPhone, you can spin around to view the picture. It’s pretty cool, and very geeky…
I thought I’d share some of the pictures from my trip to the Galapagos Islands over Thanksgiving. This trip was the (ostensible) reason for my not finishing NaNo this year. The trip was amazing. This was a trip that my mom has been wanting to do now for a few years, and we decided to travel together. Our trip was with a group called International Expeditions, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Tomorrow Mom and I will depart from Clarksville and head towards home. Hopefully we’ll be able to complete the drive in two days, but it may take two and a half. We were going to tow my car behind the Explorer, but apparently Uhaul will not rent anything to tow behind an Explorer! Who knew? Apparently some obscure liability thing, I think it’s just anti-American and Uhaul should be ashamed 😉 So, we’ll be caravanning to Massachusetts, which will spare mom listening to my music, and vice versa.
It’s been so nice to see the little guy, who’s now the big guy, and the new little guy, whom we call Worm, or Bug. He’s cute, and moody and his faces changes color like a cuttlefish when he… well does anything really! EG and I have had a lot of fun, swinging and playing. He likes to put on cooking shows. This morning he offered to make me anything in the world. It took me a little while to figure out that he was only making chicken soup that day (with fish, and clam chowder on the side), but it all worked out in the end.
