The sun came out in February, which is rare in Seattle. Instead of going outside, I wanted to curl up in the squishy yellow chair my mom gave me and knit. My friend gave me all of her yarn and some unfinished projects too. This…scarf…blanket…something warm and cozy is one of her projects I’m finishing.
Trying to get excited about socializing. Summit giving me cute looks & licks isn’t helping.
It snowed last night, unfortunately. The snow is pretty and all when it’s somewhere else and I can decide when to play with frozen water. Seattle is just NOT good with maintaining the roads when the temperature drops. We just don’t have the resources I guess. I had to get to work at 5:45am, which … More FIVE

Maybe I will actually finish this photo project. Will I have the emotional energy to take a photo of myself every week? In order to … More Self Portraits
Getting a job here was easy. Keeping said job proved more challenging. I arrived in Blenheim the first week of December. After a ten minute meeting with Nicolette, the labor coordinator for the Marlborough area, I had a name and number. I called Julie about vineyard work. “Do you know about how long the position … More Vineyards & Cherry Picking
Partially clothed bodies line the sandy beach at Anchorage Bay Campsite. The sun is strong but the wind fierce, leaving people braving a swimsuit or some fully covered. To my right girls giggle and Kung Fu around a curious bumblebee and next to them a couple spoon on a blanket. In front of me are … More Abel Tasman: Wekas & Wetas
