Out From The Mist

.: After ever so long, I decided to post an article. This is the longest I've ever gone without writing on my blog since I started one years and years ago. Yicks... So what's been going on? Lots... To much to put in a single post without me going nuts.
.: Well, this past winter I got to go skiing a bunch at Mt. Ashland. My skis still work after 11 years. My boots on the other hand, not so much. I couldn't figure out how to make my ankle/foot not hurt. However, even with the pain, I had a blast! The ski area has a lot of variety and there seemed to always be powder somewhere. Didn't ski the bowl but I did pretty much everything else. I snagged a season pass for next year so game on!

.: I opened a little Etsy Store to sell the random sewing projects I've been making. Also, I got a lot better at sewing... Wow, was I bad before. I'm still not "great" but I'm a lot better now. Check out my coffee cozies and whatever else I have up there: http://www.etsy.com/shop/gobobgo82

.: Ally and I have been doing great. We've had our ups and downs as any couple might. We're hoping that we can relax a bit this summer and just have some us time away from things. We didn't get to take a honeymoon so our "One Year Together Trip" is still being figured out. I'm excited for whatever it holds.

.: I started eating meat again. The reason for starting to eat it is the same reason that I gave it up, I hate making two menus or arguing about where to go based on dietary needs. I've slowly been adding meat to my diet since November. I'm finally to the point where I can eat most things. I had a steak the other day and it was awesome. One thing though, NOTHING will taste as good as the "thought" of bacon. It tasted amazing in my head, and real bacon, not so much. It's still good, but not earth shattering like it was in my head.

.: I purchased a new bike, Casper, a Swobo Sanchez. Its all white and black with a corduroy top tube protector that has a scene of skeletons having tea on it. Its a lot of fun to ride around. I won my first Alleycat on it too! Rode all over town collecting random things and pulled down the W. There is a fun time.

.: I started to get into gardening. I landscaped around my apartment. Pruned a bunch of plants. Planted new ones. I have a little herb garden going that I'm very exciting about, chives, cilantro, mint and basil. I've only killed some of the cilantro. That stuff is weird. I have much to learn.

.: That is gonna be it from me for right now. I'll see how the readership responds as most of you probably left after the hibernation started. Hope everyone out there is well and I'll post again soon.
