First bike ride of the season

Today I took my first bike ride of the Spring. It was such a beautiful day here today. It had to be close to 70 degrees. Sunny, partly cloudy, but the nice poofy clouds that make for good photographs. I rode up to campus and had lunch with Jim. We walked to this pizza place and sat outside. It was great.

I'm working on making a new book. It's a journal. I hope it turns out like I want it to. I really love bookmaking. I know the more I do it the better I'll get at it. I've included a photo of a photo album I made a few months ago. I'm still experimenting with binding techniques and which ones I prefer.

Today is only Friday! So fantastic! I've still got 2 days left in my weekend! Hope they are as nice as today.

New homepage

I've updated my homepage. I love the photo that is on there. It is so very Springy! Soon the baby ducks will be hatching! I can't wait. They have to be some of the cutest creatures EVER! I plan to take pictures so hopefully I'll be able to post them here.

Another apology for the look of this blog. I hope to work on it some tomorrow. I have the day off from work. Sweet. I don't even know how many people are viewing this thing. Probably not that many. Eh, no matter. Happy Spring!

Filling Station

Last night was a great night. We went to Norris Hot Springs ( then grilled some very tasty burgers for dinner and then went out to the Filling Station to see some live music. We got there about half way through the set of a band named "Small Sails." ( I enjoyed them alot. All intsrumental with movies projected behind them of mostly nature, sky, flowers and such. They have a very peaceful quality to them, but also very energetic. It was a good night.

I was also thinking of another addition to my Top 10 list. I'm thinking it may morph into just a list of fantastic things about Bozeman though because I don't know that I'll want to stop once I hit 10. I guess for now I'm still only on #5, which would be:

5. The Touchers (

A fantastic punk-rock "Pixie-esque" Violent Fems-ish band from Bozeman. I am most excited about this entry because seeing them live gave me hope for the music scene out here. I just had to get to know some people here in town to find out who is worth seeing. These guys definitely are. And so, they make the list.

Another Top 10

I thought of another to add to the top 10 list:

4. The "Flirtini" at Boodles, preferrably prepared by Babbett.

It is by far my favorite cocktail since moving out here. Although it should be noted that it should not be abused :) For those who are curious it has Absolut Citron, pineapple juice, a splash of cranberry and it's topped off with champagne. Delish :)

The list continues. . .

Yesterday I went skiing with Julie and Clayton up at Big Sky. It was fantastic. A bit crazy for awhile though because it was snowing so bad we couldn't hardly see where we were going and we were laughing our asses off as we tried to get down the mountain. Big Sky is pretty spectacular. The Lone Peak is a very majestic site. You get the idea pretty well from their website:

It was a great day. Boy was I tired when I got home though. I'm not used to so much activity and at higher elevations it really takes it out of you. I don't know if I'll get anymore skiiing in this season, so it was great to get to go yesterday. Spring is on it's way!
