Backyard Happiness

Sitting on the porch swing, I noticed the lawn I’d mowed a couple of days ago, the trees at the far end of the yard, and the blue sky. Ahh! :-)

Daily Commute IV

Work this morning started with a 7 AM meeting.1Just one of the benefits of working for a multinational corporation. Time zone coordination is critical, as is sharing the pain of inconvenient meeting times. After the meeting, I headed off to work on my bike. In Dawson Creek Park, I saw some ducklings for the second time this season and the three families of Canada geese with goslings that hang out together. Although they’ve had gray coloration for a while,2When Canada geese goslings hatch, they’re yellow! it seems like just this week that they’ve started having white and black tail feathers. I guess I’ll have to go check some earlier photos. And of course, I took a picture of my favorite clump of trees.

What a great way to start my Friday!

Stand Tall

With today’s warmer weather,1By noon, it had warmed to freezing and headed to a high of 34 I took my better camera.2A Canon Powershot S100. I got a great deal on it last year during the week of cyber-Monday. And yes, it is a better camera than my Motorola Razr i. I wanted to retry yesterday’s shot. I think I like the perspective and framing better. Do you agree?

Now to wait for different weather or season…

Brisk Stand

Hillsboro’s temperature continues to be cold — today’s lunch ride was a brisk 24 degrees. Yet, with no wind, I felt warmer and faster than last Friday’s ride. Only my feet were cold, and that’s easily fixable.

On the way back, I passed through Rock Creek Trail Park and snapped another photo. I’ve been there before.
