I am so glad to be able to type this, as it has been a very stormy day here in Seattle; I expected to lose power all day. Take a look at the waves in this picture I took at noon today! Now compare to the usual, more serene state of the beach here.
At the boys' (first ever) hockey game tonight, the power briefly went out. I panicked; they of course calmly stopped skating and stood still until the lights came back on. Alexi was very sad to have to miss the game due to work; he set up a short slide show (make sure your speakers are on!) of the shots I got here. Abbott and Cal have on gold jerseys that say "Phinney"; Abbott is wearing an orange helmet. Abbott with his stick in the air is celebrating having scored the first goal! A local news station (KOMO) was on the ice filming; the boys are thrilled about their upcoming stint on TV (sometime next week).
To follow up on one of my goals for 2009, I am taking one photo a day for the entire year. These photos will be posted to Flickr, and that set can be viewed here. (I've also added a link on the side to my Flickr photostream; some make it to this blog and some don't.) This project has already inspired me in many ways!
I just discovered a lovely collaborative project called Habit. I encourage you to take a look! This blog celebrates the simple daily tasks, routines, and rituals that make up our days. I think you will find some resonance there with my blog.
I hope that your New Year is off to a great start!
