The long times

It’s been quite some time since writing something of substance, or at least a grouping of written ideas of substance.  The times, they are a changin’.
Juniper is still yet to fully bloom, but she is bright and amazing and temporal and all encompassing.  She really is an amazing little thing.  Skinny like a spindle.  Smiling [...]

Another Unseasonable Start to Winter – COP 21

It’s December 13th and it has been consistently over freezing the last few weeks here in Minnesota.  I’d say it’s a nice surprise but after the last decade it doesn’t really seem so.  My memory is not nearly as good as it used to be, but it seems that as of the last decade or [...]

KUBB TOURNEY!

No big post today as I’ve got to get ready for our annual winter Kubb tournament on Lake Harriet.  If you aren’t familiar with Kubb, take a look here.  Wish me luck!  Below is a video of a my buddy Seguin winning it a few years ago.  Tons of fun and a great way to [...]

Winter Wrap

This is the time of year that seasonal affective disorder usually takes hold, but we’ve had a very light winter and it hasn’t been completely crumby. The new snowblower we bought barely got used, we had a really nice December and January, with colder than typical November and February. But thus far it’d [...]

Tough Times for Minnesotans

It’s that time of year again.  Year after year, the tiresome inevitability of winter hits right around now. People are grumpy.  Everything that irks you normally is just a little bit more annoying.If you speak with most Minnesotans the first week of February, most of us are in a sour mood.  We’re tired of being [...]

Forgotten Things

Oh those forgotten things.
Forgotten and remembered today.
While up at the lake for Thanksgiving I forgot the McCarthy trilogy I’d been reading in Alexandria, Minnesota with about 50 pages left.  So that’s on hold.  I also forgot my extremely warm winter vest in Cloquet, Minnesota.
In the mean time I’ve started rereading a classic rendition of Walden, [...]

Dog Days of Winter

It’s bitter cold in Minneapolis. January 22nd and -9 as of now.
I find this time of year to be pretty tough most years. This year has been a bit better due to the trip to Costa Rica, but it’s tough to get up and out of bed when it’s extremely cold [...]

End of February: Thank You.

Great month, but I’m happy to be moving on to March.  This has been a long, cold and snowy winter.  I’ll be very happy to get some more exercise and outdoor activity in.  I’m thinking already about six months from now, getting a duplex with Teresa and getting a dog!  It is going to be [...]

Big SNOW!

Minnesota winter is HERE and it is not going for some time.  I’m taking a trip to Vegas for a sales presentation tomorrow and hope I can get out to the airport!  It was shut down today due tot he amount of snow coming down.  Pretty nasty out there.
I think most people around here actually [...]
