If we were having coffee this afternoon, it would be in Coeur d’Alene. The Sexy Master Electrician’s cousin was married on Friday and we are making a trip out of it. Currently we are in one of my favorite places, a bookstore, recharging while browsing cookbooks. More on the trip later!
If we were having coffee this afternoon, we would be talking about last weekends amazing camping trip over to Cliff and Wade Lakes. One of our friends wanted to celebrate her birthday up there. We borrowed a SUP and rented one for TSME. We spent our time on Cliff Lake this time and camped on the hilltop. I was worried we were gonna freeze, but it was so lovely. It was the first time I’ve been able to camp with out the fly on.
The weekend before that we went on a lovely hike up Sypes Canyon and breakfast at the Stockyard. Both are Bozeman favorites, I do get up Sypes, (about a four miles hike up to a great view of town), The Stockyard stopped serving breakfast for a time but now it’s back and I should really go more often.
If we were having coffee this afternoon, I would tell you that I somehow found myself at two car shows that same weekend. I hope TSME remembers this is the future. High notes, a Porche Roadster from the 60’s and a pet pig. Takeaways: If TSME remembers anything, it’s that I need a teacup pig.
If we were having coffee this afternoon, I would tell you that I’ve had some fun site visits for work lately. First I went up in a cherry picker to take a look at a roof to see what was going on. Later that week I went up to the roof of the new engineering building at MSU for a meeting on the solar panel installation. We are going to be doing a smaller array at the middle school I am working on, so I went to get a better understanding of what will be going on.
If we were having coffee this afternoon I would tell you that we went to the Livingston Art Walk. It was a beautiful Friday. It’s not nearly as busy as the Bozeman one is and it’s such a fun town with great galleries and people. The wind wasn’t blowing for once and we were able to sit outside and enjoy music, before it decided to pick up again.
If we were having coffee this afternoon, I would tell you that my friend was so desperate for a body on the field, I played softball for the first time since middle school. Maybe there was one regretful time in collage. As athletic as I think I am, I am absolutely terrible swinging a bat. In middle school gym class, they would give me the giant wiffle ball bat, mistakenly thinking that more surface area might fix the problem. Miraculously, I didn’t do horribly and it was kinda fun.
