8r4d While most of the #runcrew was off in the mountains sweeping up the last couple legs of Sinister 7, a few of us stayed behind for some Sunday #running in the #rain followed by the regular coffee meetup.

North Saskatchewan River
8r4d The girls set out on a solo #kayak adventure this morning, tho my adventure involved trying to wrangle the air pump to cooperate and inflate the darned thing. Hopefully they can read the map I drew so where they exit the #river and where we park the car later match up. #rivervalley

8r4d We’ve been living thru a week-long #heatwave and a brief reprieve came this evening in the form of a #thunderstorm that passed by. I ran around the house opening all the doors and windows hoping to get some air flow going on so that we could bring the temperature of the indoors down to something tolerable. The Kid slept in the basement last night because while we have a little portable air conditioner for our bedroom, she was sleeping in a sauna in her regular bed. I say this now, but I’ll take freezing cold over too hot any day of the week.

Big Mama?
8r4d Our neighbourhood, as I’ve discovered over the last year, is severely lacking in #lunch #pizza slice joints. So you might imagine my excitement when I learned there is a brand new almost pizza-by-the-slice place a four minute drive from my house. I write almost because their slice is not a slice but a pizza shaped like a slice. Their smaller of their big slices is like four slices but cooked to order. So. For minute drive plus a ten minute wait to cook it is much better than the twenty minute drive to the next closest slice joint. Hey, this ain’t New York City folks. I thought I would be adventurous today and spent fourteen minutes (and less $ than a burrito just down the street!) procuring a Big Mama slice. Some day we’ll need an excuse to order their 54 inch’er but this trip was worth it for now.

8r4d To beat the +30C #heat or morning #walk was earlier than usual today.

8r4d I have spent a good chunk of my day writing #code here. You may or may not realize this, but the code running this little website upon which you are reading these words (at least at the time of posting them) is a little applet I created from scratch to organize and share pictures, words and other media bits in a way that was intended to be similar to some other #socialmedia platforms you may be familiar with already.

Treehouse Part 1
bradsalomons “What do you think, bud?” Ludo stands, hands on his hips, surveying the trunk of a particularly broad-trunked ash tree near the back quarter of his property. “This one? Gee, she must be a hundred years old by the looks of her. I can’t even see the top, can you?” [read more...]
