こんばんは。How’s it going?

For a while now (maybe a couple years?) I’ve been posting to the blog every day, and also taking a photo which is included in the post. But sometimes I don’t get around to taking a photo until late in the day. Amongst people doing a 365 project, these are called 11:59pm photos.

That’s kind of what happened with this photo, although it was 10:50pm, not 11:59. (hey, I was getting sleepy!) I originally planned on posting post a photo from Koa’s evening band concert performance but the photos were all blurry and I just couldn’t use them. However, I quite like my 11:59 photo because the Fujifilm X100T‘s lens is really good and produces some (I think) unique-looking images. It makes even the most mundane subject matter look decent. 😆 Just another reason why the Fujifilm X100T is my favorite camera. 📸

I hope you had a nice Monday!

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today in Austin the temperatures hung around freezing all day, but we got a lot done. A few things we did:

  • Koa and I got haircuts
  • Bay and I went to the post office to buy postage to mail one of his paintings that he sold
  • Bay and I spent an hour practicing driving (he’s improving a lot!)
  • I worked on a friend’s website
  • Shopping for some Team USA Olympics gear
  • Tried Taco Bell’s new “nacho fries”

Then in the evening, it was time to relax with a wonderful dinner of “Taco Rice”, which is basically rice with seasoned ground beef, cheese, lettuce, jalapeños. Yum!

And of course we watched a bunch of Olympic events, most notably the Women’s slope-style and half-pipe events. After seeing those events, Koa really wants to learn how to snowboard. He was amazed when I told him I snowboarded a lot in Southern California. I think it was a combination of “there’s snow in Southern California?” and “my dad knows how to snowboard?” Hey, I used to be cool. 😆

Today’s photo is… well, it needs no explanation. 😺

I hope you had a nice Sunday!

Today’s photo is of some cars parked outside my office. It’s interesting that looking at them from a new perspective, you can really notice the huge differences in the sizes of the vehicles. There are three SUVs parked adjacent to each other, but one of them is gigantic, isn’t it? 😲

I hope you had a nice Monday!

“Washi?” Cedar Park, 2018

Today, just a photo. Honestly, this is one of those late-night “what am I going to take a photo of?” snaps. But we do have a bunch of (I think) cool things around the house. 😀 Like a squirrel washi tape dispenser. 🐿️

And today is my father’s birthday. 80 years young! 🎂🎉 Happy Birthday, Dad!

Anyway, we made it to the weekend – Yay!

Burger Lunch

Today I met a friend at a burger place for lunch. I don’t go out too often, or eat lunch at all, so it was really nice to get out of the office! Plus catching up with a buddy over burgers and $1 beers is fun. Thursdays at Hat Creek are when draft beer is only a buck, so it got pretty crowded at lunch. Luckily my friend and I beat the rush by arriving a little early (11:30am) so there was no waiting. Yay! And the burger was pretty good, and the fries were excellent. I’ll be going back for sure!

It’s hard to believe that we’ve already come to February, isn’t it? 2018 is flying by… soon it will be summer. 😀🌞

I hope you had a nice Thursday!

Today’s photo is of a fresh apple sitting in our kitchen. 🍎 I thought the color looked really nice, especially seeing it next to the wooden breadbox.

It seems that I don’t eat much fruit these days, but actually, I will have a banana, kiwi fruit, or tangerine while in the office. It’s so nice that my workplace provides fresh fruit for us! I really should take advantage of it more often. But pizza…

こんばんは。Today I was downtown attending a conference and when I was walking to the parking garage, I took the photo above. One neat thing about the city is that there is cool stuff if you look up!

I hope you had a good day.
