One-Sentence Journal, Week Nineteen

  1. 11/04/2013:  With daylight savings time kicked in, evening walks along the river while waiting for Julia to finish work will now be undertaken in the cold and darkness, which I don’t mind at all.
  2. 11/05/2013:  I spent the afternoon up Six Mile stacking firewood at my folks’ place while my mom worked alongside me at a pace better than a woman half her age . . . though all would likely have been lost if not for timely instruction from my dad via the peanut gallery.
  3. 11/06/2013:  These chilly mornings when heavy fog rolls back from the sunlight, revealing mountains covered in snow so bright it looks blue, are the best.
  4. 11/07/2013:  In an unprecedented turn of events, tonight I’m the one up late reading what is essentially a fashion catalog (Filson’s Fall/Winter 2013) while Julia snores; not sure how I feel about this. . . .
  5. 11/08/2013:  The best part of watching the new Thor movie in the theater today was how the little kid behind me would “Ooo!” and “Aaah!” and “Whoa!” every time Thor did something awesome.
  6. 11/09/2013:  I’ve come to realize that the “owl” I’ve recently seen atop a power pole I drive by daily is actually a fake, and I need to get to the bottom of the hows and whys it has suddenly appeared there.
  7. 11/10/2013:  Today was the last Sunday afternoon I can count on not spending at band practice for a while, and I have to say I’ll miss puttering around and wrapping up simple little things I fall behind on during the week.

  1. Thanks for the update, Chris. Fake owls abound here. Supposed to keep away pigeons I think, but pigeons are smarter than that. Decided to start a one-sentence journal of my own over at BITS. First installment on Sunday.

    1. I did some research the night I wrote that and learned it’s pretty common for keeping birds away. These poles in particular have additional hardware on them, so clearly there is stuff they don’t want messed with. Good luck with your journal as well!
