night off

So I have a night off before I get to work another night. I'm in the process of making sugar cookies. The dough is chill'in in the fridge. The kitchen is actually pretty stocked with treats. The game plan might be to freeze all but a couple and get to work on the Earthquake brownies Patricia sent from the Backdoor in Sitka and the peanut butter fudge and chex mix sent from my mother. Yay for the holidays.

Good morning, Tree.

This was a moment that I couldn't help but hunt down this morning. Nothing like standing on the edge of a cliff staring off into a vast glowing valley to start your day.

Pedal to the Midnight Sun

"A good film."

I went to see this on Saturday as part of the Anchorage International Film Festival. They first played the short version which had great timing, and then after all three films they played the long version. As I told one of the film makers, it was really great to see a documentary about cycle touring. You can learn more about them or support their next trip on their Dudes On Media website. It is amazing how much all cycle-tourists have in common.

Stuck in Louisiana

"Stuck in Louisiana" is what I would have titled this photo, if I'd know I was supposed to title it. It recently won third place in the Things category in the Anchorage Press's Black and White Photo Contest. It actually managed to get printed in the newspaper too. I'm feeling semi-special right now. I can remember taking the picture feeling much like the cockroach.

This one of Freedom at the summer camp's BBQ at HPR rec made Judge's picks in the People category.

These last two, Bree Hack (ODL graduate) and Lona Geffe (summer camper from Kotzebue), didn't place. But managed to get put up on the wall at decent heights so that people could actually see them.

I had fun playing with iMovie on the Iliff's computer with the pictures I happened to have on my stick.
