Clo & I had a great weekend of rafting the Umpqua River. Being in the water soothes my soul to an extent I have a hard time putting into words. I had forgotten how much the river feeds me. Time to get a boat!
Cloey says HI!!
The ruffians are being quite rowdy this morning, on my only day to SLEEP IN!
Savin them snap pea seeds for next year’s garden.
This is such a synthetic culture we have created.
It makes me want to shove spinach & wildflowers in my face.
All I want is to lay on the earth while I cool my feet in a lazy stream & watch the wind blow the leaves.
Peach basil hand pies. I’m feeling a bit like a domestic goddess right now.
Public Apology to Anyone Who Was in the Parking Garage This Morning and Witnessed Me Jump Out of My Car and Rip My Pants Off
Skinny jeans are my favorites. I mean, I really love them.
Until I realize there is a huge fucking spider in them.
Then suddenly they are impossible to get off and I hate them so much.
JUST GET OFF ME JEANS. I can feel this spider SQUIRMING against my leg and I’m going to die if I can’t make it stop. WHY ARE MY CALVES SO BIG?!?! HOW DID I EVEN GET THESE ON IN THE FIRST PLACE?!?!
So anyways. 40 million spider bites & a little indecent exposure later…
How is your morning going?
Exploring new fishing holes on this thundery, stormy day.
July Rafting Mission accomplished! A very random Facebook message from a girl I knew in high school resulted in a hilarious, fun packed rafting weekend in Maupin. I hadn’t been on the Lower Deschutes since I did my river guide training on it & it was really fun to go back & run some familiar rapids. It got me pretty amped to work hard & buy a boat! Plus I got to wear my radical neon 80s shortie wetsuit. I mean…
We rafted, hung out at the Rainbow Tavern, played a lot of Mancala & I showed Jamers how to make a lantern out of a water bottle. It was really fun to mix it up with new faces & hitting the road just made me stoked to do it again. I’m planning another road trip to the Denver area in October. If you are between Oregon & Colorado, holler at me & let’s grab a beer!
