T-Minus Less Than Two Weeks...

My folks are coming up for another visit soon and I couldn't be more thrilled(!!)

T-minus two weeks until their arrival. Having them up here to cheer me on as I run my first full marathon is going to be some kind of wonderful. I can't wait!

I'm hoping for a week of beautiful skies and no rain while they're here. My fingers are crossed!

Speaking of, I'm reminded of the Blind Melon tune below. This is simply classic.

Let the countdown begin!! *shrills of excitement*

The New Fall...

Today is first official day of Autumn. It's hard to believe that Summer has come and gone already. I feel that I have a hundred new photos to share with you from recent happenings that I've been too caught up in to take the time to stop and report back to you about. I'll do my best in the next few weeks. I promise.

This past weekend I headed out to Jericho Beach to soak up the last few rays of summer and snapped the photo above. The ocean, the mountains, the city; like no place I've ever been before. 

I've been in my office listening to Gregory Alan Isakov ever since my lab-mates left for the day. The song below along and may other wonderful people have me missing the Southeast. Oh, how I'm counting down the days to Christmas.

And with the sunrise we welcome the coming fall. Enjoy!

The Breeze...

Labor day has come and passed which means the starts of yet another semester. Gone for now are the extra-hours of sleeping in on weekday mornings, the late night summer shenanigans, and the lengthy days of sunshine. Sigh... I'm so happy it's the weekend. 

Dr. Dog has been keeping me company in the car this week. Oh, the breeze.

Are you moving much too fast and the good times just don't last? If you're always on the go, make an angel in the snow and freeze...

Happy Weekend. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Mackaroo...

Today is my dear friend, Mack's birthday. He's had his own category on the website for years and is the only person I've ever let take over my blog for a day. It's hard to believe it's been some 6 years, Mackaroo, but here we are! I scanned through my photos and highlighted some of my favorites above. You're a man of many talents and a million faces.

I thought a little tune by The Revivalists was appropriate for the day. 

Happy Birthday, Mackaroo. I'm glad to hear you're feeling pretty today.

Fieldwork and Friends..

Earlier this week I made a trip to the Fraser Valley to do a bit of fieldwork. Nothing makes a Tuesday like a bit of fresh air, some u-pick veggies and fruit, and getting to meet the loveable little ladies above. I'll definitely be going back out that way soon. Oh, the places research takes you.

I've posted below something I am quite excited to share with you. The talented cellist, my dear friend Ayla Green, was recently featured in a music video for the band Noiseheads. Ayla is simply delightful. Hearing her sweet cello wail always makes me smile.

It's time to go play in the mountains for a while. Enjoy!
