Fusing day 1

Today, I started a 4-week long class on fusing class. It’s an art form I’ve wanted to experiment with for sometime, and today I took the first step: cutting and firing glass. Who knew how much science went into art?!

Two years

Today, we celebrated my niece, Madysyn’s, second birthday. It was a backyard success. She’s fearless. She’s strong. She’s determined. She loves her pap-pap and her sister. She’ll be a handful, but I can’t wait to meet the woman she becomes.

The stairway to…

After taking my usual double load of RPM classes this morning, we set out to check out a trail I wanted to see for sometime: River Place Trail. I knew it had the highest elevation change in all of Austin, and it had a ton of steps – thousands; and, my understanding was correct. However, it was the perfect day for a hike. I can’t wait to go back!

Cat scratch date night

The other day, we discovered our cat, Maggie, had some worms. Since she is one of four (another story), we knew we had to act quick to prevent it from getting to the others. Luckily, Aj was able to take or attempt to take 3 of the 4 cats to the vet. The other, Satan, left him looking like he survived a fight with Wolverine. Therefore, we commemorated the occasion with a date night…

The Originator

After another long day, I went home and biked a 210-watt ride for 16 miles. Though, it’s not long, it was intense. Afterward, I lost my appetite. With nothing else appealing, I remembered The Originator; and the originator did the job!

Questioning

I’ve been lucky enough to be part of the search committee for a vacancy at our school. It’s my first time being part of a process for a higher level position than my own, and it’s exciting to learn about others and feel the world is open.

Spring begins

Today, we started back at school and commenced spring term. It was also the first day of spring. After a long day back, I enjoyed an evening stroll by our neighborhood creek. The sunshine is much appreciated.
