Getting it all taken care of…needless to say, we didn’t hike the Ouray rim like we planned.

Bathroom break.

And then the dogs got into a fight over Cornelius Von Poppington, their favorite stuffed penguin friend. It’s times like these that living in a rural area can be a problem. We woke up the closest emergency vet when we called him, and he’s still at least 30 minutes away. We didn’t end up having to go, and everything turned out okay.

I got to sleep in the office with Hannah, though, so that was fun.

I learned today that if a fish gets off your hook before you’ve touched it, you didn’t catch it.

The last time I caught a fish I was about 14 years old. I think we used a barbed hook, and it was pretty brutal getting it out of the fish’s throat. The fish was small, maybe only 6-8 inches long. When we put it back into the small mountain stream, his body was taken slowly with the current.

I almost cried. I don’t know why it affected me so much. Every time I’ve fished since then I hoped I wouldn’t catch anything. So far I’ve been lucky enough not to. I haven’t touched a fish, so to speak.

To combat my cabin fever, Ally and I went out to the little Chinese restaurant in town. It’s called Oriental, which makes me feel racist just going to it. Pretty good Chinese food. Really nice to get out the house and go on a date.

Bonnie decided to escape our fenced-in yard and take a walk down the road by herself. It was already a pretty stressful day at work, and that didn’t help.

Luckily my wife is awesome and makes me happy.

A 10 minute exposure can make moonlight look like sunlight. There was a lot more sky visible when I started, then the clouds rolled in.

The weather here can (and does) transition really quickly. We woke up this morning to blasting winds and sideways snow, which transitioned into sunny snow-showers, then a generally beautiful sunny day.

Then Broncos + Golden Globes. Pretty nice Sunday.

Ouray Ice Festival!

Ouray is one of my favorite mountain towns. It’s even cooler when they pump millions of gallons of freezing water over the edge of a gorge and let people climb all over it. Of course, we had to stop at the culinaire¬†hot sauce and honey, and also at Mouse’s Chocolates and Coffee. It turns our Mouse’s has really fast public wifi, and is only a few blocks from where Ally works. I might have to keep that in mind…
