It's been a while...

So It's been a while since I last posted. I kept meaning to write, but couldn't find the time. My latest project has been creating a rope rug out of my old climbing rope. I found a pattern online and gave it a try. The rug turned out really well, but a bit small. It only used about 30m of the rope, so i wrapped some of the extra rope around the outside to make it a little bigger. I'll probably use the last 20m or so to make another rug, but maybe just circular this time.

Dante has been doing well. He's made friends with Cooper, my friends 10 month old black lab. Which is nice, because they stick together at the dog park... for the most part. Both equally ignoring their masters. Maybe that's not such a good thing. Tug-of-war is their favorite game. And they both love the water.

Also, last night, was the Rapha Roller Races. This video is from Portland, but you get the idea. The races were held at Mellow Johnny's bike shop, which is Lance Armstrong's new shop here in Austin. Over all it was a good time.

My parents are coming down in three weeks, so stay tuned for pictures of the house. We'll be doing a lot of work on the yard and the garage area.
