Happy New Years Eve! Daryl, Nick, Ozzy, and I skinned up near tree line at Mt. St. Helens today and got drunk at camp tonight. A great way to ring in 2012!

The Explorer misplaced his hat months ago. We looked and looked and had decided he must’ve left it on Mt. St. Helens last March (the last pictorial evidence of it). He finally found one online last week and ordered a new one. Literally days after it came in the mail, he found his old hat stuffed in a pocket of a jacket.

I love cleaning out my room at my parents house and finding gems like this. As a general rule, if it was taken in Alaska, I’m adorable and it becomes my new favorite photo.

I found my collection of Jones Soda Bottles in my old room today. 53 bottles, mostly all Fufu Berry, every single one a different photo. And thanks to the 5¬Ę Oregon deposit, I’ll get a whopping $2.65 for them all!

If I weren’t fervently wishing for rain so it would snow on the mountain, this would be the most beautiful day in weeks. However, it is December in Astoria and it should be raining so that the mountains can have more than a [melting] 39″ of snow!

december 9, 2011

We came home today to discover a 250lb bale of Hops in our living room. The house smells delicious!

december 10, 2011

We’re all classy in this house and drink [nearly an entire bottle of] wine out of mason jars.
Note: Willamette Valley Vineyard Whole Cluster Pinot Noir is delicious.

To continue our nice streak of making awesome meals, we made a delicious potato, onion, garlic, Polish sausage, and aged white Cheddar scramble this morning. Om nom nom.

The Explorer and I finally made it into the Columbian Cafe this morning for brunch. I had the most amazing and delicious spinach and cheese crepe. Accompanied by the cutest man on the planet and a mimosa, it was perfect!

november 27, 2011

Finally finished my second pair of birthday socks. After, I organized my knitting stuff and got everything set to start my second prototype ski hat, only to discover I need a new set of circulars and the shops had closed by then.

After making a trip to the coin shop in Longview, I stopped by Target and bought a new train case (my old one was nearly 10 years old and falling apart) and notebooks for knitting things.
