Summer Recap (clearing out the blogwebs)

Been a busy simmer, as usual. Between remodelling and the usual stuff, there were a few vacations and outings crammed into our summer and fall. I'll detail a few of them below, including:



Big update on the remodel

The master bath project is very nearly complete. The master bedroom is lacking only the finishing touches as well. The guest room is now Cohen's bedroom and it has been completed, now we're commencing on the remodel of Hayley's room. Master Bathroom The big project was the Master Bath and its essentially finished, save some crown molding and a glass block divider to be added.


Aurora Borealis Again!

It happened again! A very energetic sunspot blew a nice blast of plasma directly toward the Earth this November and it created an unbelievale auroral display in Washington. Tim and I managed to get our cameras running at the peak of the storm. November 7, 2004

A directly Earth-directed X1 flare blasted past the our magnetosphere last night around 7pm on up to around midnight, and oh my what a show it was.


Spring Break trip

Went to coast, Washington and Oregon, for spring break this year. Pictures here.


Learnin' CSS

I've never been really happy with the look of the main page of my photo albums. So after perusing the CSS Zen Garden site, I decided I would try to use CSS instead of fancy images and tables to do the site.


Lots of progress on the Master Bath

After months of not seeing a whole lot of progress, a sudden surge of work has occured. My dad came up last week and we cut the wall we intended to make a half wall and taped and mudded the drywall. After a few more coats of mud and sanding, we're essentially ready to begin tiling, which is very exciting.

The shower stall is covered in almost-raw latex which dried a deep blue, almost black. This will provide the outermost moister barrier under the tile.


Christmas came early this year

. Jenn presented me, forefully, with my Christmas present early this year. Though normally reluctant to open anything before Christmas eve, I couldn't resist and opened the box. DAMN.. A Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel SLR!!


Random Image Finder

Someone else actually did this, but I enhanced it a little bit.

What is it? Its a Random Google Image Finder. It will search google for random variations of digital camera file names.

What's the point? Well, its very interesting the things you find people take pictures of. There seem to be a few common events that people take pictures of, yet some things are totally out there.


Aurora Borealis

The third largest recorded coronal mass ejection (CME) from the sun slammed into the earth around midnight on October 28 spurning the intense aurura all the way from California to Goergia. For a short period, the aurora was visible between the clouds in here in Bothell. managed to get some photos before the clouds closed in completely.


Naches Peak Loop

Cohen and I went on a gorgeous hike at the Chinook Pass summit this Sunday. I read that this was an easy hike and I knew Cohen would enjoy himself so we decided to go.

The hike was extremely easy, but the payoff was amazing. From small unnamed ponds with green/blue water to the imemnse Mount Rainier, there was eye-candy abound. The fall colors were starting to appear, with lots of vibrant red ground cover.
