When I Wasn’t Posting

I haven’t been posting a lot lately, not because I haven’t been doing anything. If anything it’s because I have been doing too much. With the winter months coming, the day light is getting short, but I still find lots to do. Here are some photos from things Angel and I have been up to, but haven’t had time to post.
Afternoon at the bookstore. Nice late night mug of hot carocoa. (Carob, chocolate free)
Spent some time trying to make my grandma’s recipe for pizzelle vegan for Angel. It worked out alright, although they ended up a little more crunchy then they should be. I still need to spend some time tweaking it. I ended up making 2 batches, the first batter failed miserably. *reminder to self, don’t use the solid fat from coconut milk, It just melts everywhere, and doesn’t work.
Pizzelle Time First Pizzelles of the season
I got some new rain gear for this winter season. Showers Pass makes great rain gear, the Club Convertible 2 Pants, and Club Shoe Cover are the new addition with my rain cape. The pants and shoe covers work awesome. My good old rain cape on the other hand, hasn’t ever really held up to heavy wind and rain. Maybe someday I will replace the cape with something nicer, but until then my rain cape is great for shorter rides around the city, and my rain pants and booties will do their job well.
All rain geared up this morning. End of the day.
We spent some time hiking around Mount Pisgah Arboretum. With a nice break in the weather that day, we spent a couple hours exploring around. You can watch a video of the trip in my post from yesterday, or here on YouTube.

The days around Thanksgiving were spent cleaning and setting up our Christmas tree. My mom sent me all my ornaments so we had something to hang on our tree this year. And we just lazed around a bit.

I had some time to organize my work space, hang out with friends a little, meet new friend, play with tesla coils, and go to the library. What could be better?
Our new dishes. Thanks Mom, Kyle and Brooke. Blackberry Forest Soda, strong color, strong amazing taste.
Tesla Coil fun with a fluorescent light bulb at the Eugene Maker Space. My work shop put together and organized.
@shanerh @EugeneSRTS , Hello, if I don't see you inside the library today. Thought I lost my Ortlieb shoulder strap while coming home from work. To my surprise it was at home the whole time, just where I left it.
Angel made some great baklava!  It was the first time I ever had it, it was delicious, so tasty and sweet. I don’t normally eat too much sugar, and after having a bit I felt a little rush. *After writing that last sentence, I must go to the fridge and eat some more. **reminder to self, don’t eat more then one piece, again, too much sugar.
Baklava, Angel's first time making it. First time I tried it. Results are good.

  1. Nice LHT! Oh man, I need some Shower’s Pass rain pants. Maybe I can buy them when I am out in Portland!
