I am still rocking the writer's block and nursing a deep-seated hatred of any time spent in front of a computer screen after the 40 hours I spend in front of one at work.  But I've been out and about and remembered my camera, so here are some recent pictures.

Feeding the new lambs on the in-laws' farm.  Ignore my double chin.

The mister competed in a mountain bike race and did fabulously right up until the bike broke.

You can't see where it broke because it was COVERED in mud.

My younger brother taking the mister's 30 year old moped for a spin.  He's single, ladies, and does his own laundry!

The mister and I took a stroll at Minnehaha Creek.

I learned to spin yarn on my new spinning wheel.  (I'm still learning.  I suck.)

And I knit.
