November – 2021

Random photos from the month. Corvin holding onto Brawndo Holding Brawndo on the porch. Showing off how large Brawndo is. I swear we have 3 cats, but another of Brawndo. My pre-voting view. Had to wear my President Camacho shirt. Took a drive with Danelle and ended up at Indian Trail State Forrest. A unicycle … Continue reading “November – 2021”

Waterfall Root Docking – 11/22/2020

Sonora and I went out to Waterfall to get out of the house. There, she worked on a fire to burn honeysuckle. With her keeping the fire going, I spent my time root docking honeysuckle. This helps our woods get clear and provides wood for the fire. Bringing it up to be burnt! We had … Continue reading “Waterfall Root Docking – 11/22/2020”

2020 Cross Country District Championships – 10/31/2020

One of the more amazing things about 2020 is that the Cross Country season wasn’t ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The meets have been very different this year. Most of the meets didn’t allow spectators. When they did allow spectators, we needed masks on. More surprising yet, almost everybody at the meets complied and … Continue reading “2020 Cross Country District Championships – 10/31/2020”

September – 2020

Another month has moved by quickly. We’re still home more than we want with COVID-19 around. You can tell by the number of cat photos we have this month. Trying to capture Brawndo looking stately. Somehow a sink is the same as a cat bed. Not something I encourage, but I often get overridden. Coatrack’s … Continue reading “September – 2020”

Go Ape – 9/27/2020

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the family was going nuts stuck in the house. I figured the best thing to do was get out and do a family activity. That was going to be zip-lining with Go Ape. Danelle, Corvin, and I had done this once before for Corvin’s birthday. We started off … Continue reading “Go Ape – 9/27/2020”
