For the past few weeks (2 or 3) my friend and I have been working on a sewing bowl for a secret santa. We had recorded a bunch of video and pictures but heres the short version of it all. We started off with pallet wood, cut it, sanded it and glued together. Made a square and rotated it down for each layer making them slightly smaller than the above layer. Used an angle grinder, hand chisels, saws, knives, to widdle it down and hollow it out. Then set it ablaze! Sanded it more, stained it, sanded it again, more ablaze. Then final stain and clear coat x6 layers and sanded after every 2. Super fun project having never worked with wood before! Totally wanna continue this in California. Bunches of screw ups and over doing the sanding in areas but that's more of a personal criticism. Even just eyeballing it, I got a perfectly level and stable bowl. If you kick it over its bottom weighted enough to roll back up and stand normal! So I was pretty excited and so were they to receive it. So if anyone wants some wood working done, call me. It's my new side hustle lol
Truth bomb here: I’ve been curious about wanderlust road tripping for yearssss now.
Like. Years. Possibly 2375489574 dog years.
Technically, I was scared about the open road. But intrigued! But intimidated. But interested! But skeptical. But fascinated! But leery. But doing it. Like, right now.
Is it easy? Nope. Is it awesome? Yes!
Writing a blog post about it right now, while inhaling a cuppa java. GULP.
Whatcha up to? Where are you? Whatcha think of RV life?
Tell me. I need these details to know if I’m the only weirdo out there who likes living in a house on wheels that is the size of a postage stamp. 😂
Tu es là devant moi et tu contemples, ébahi, les couleurs du ciel qui s’intensifient. Tu ne me gâches pas la vue, au contraire. J’entrevois tous les contours de ta silhouette. Je me sens connectée à ce moment, à toi, et à tout ce qui nous entoure.
I lived on the Mendenhall glacier the whole summer. I liked it so much that I’d even come to the toe of the glacier on my days off. My first attempt to get here was dumb though. I hiked 5 miles with rubber boots on. The thing about rubber and ice, they don’t get along well. It was actually pretty dangerous walking around cravats while busting my ass every minute. This photo was the second time I came here and this time I made sure I brought my hiking boots and some yak tracks which worked out perfectly well. I was able to get the traction I needed and ended up finding some awesome glacier rivers between the cravats. I’ll post them some other time. But for now here’s a selfie.
