I love when my birthday falls on Friday the 13th. It is such a loaded day of superstition...what could go wrong right?
Nim and I are planning to teach a class on how to take a selfie. I think we have it down.
Thursday morning I woke up and realized that I really REALLY needed to take a vacation day for my birthday so I put in for vacation for today. I will working my tax job tonight, but not my other accounting job. I could hardly sleep I was so excited to get out and hike today.
I wanted a bit of sun so I wanted until 6:30am (sadly I was up at 5am) to hit the trail. We are in this freakish warm winter. The local ski area has completely given up even trying to have runs open it is so warm. This weather is perfect for a 42 year old hiking starved girl and her dog.
Nim talked about his feelings for about the first 30 minutes of the trail. He wanted all the birds to know that he was back.
Every year or so I think taking a selfie is a good idea (taken with my dog of course because I am not selfie material). Since it is my birthday, I leave you with a series of selfie attempts. Let's face it, the best one is at the start of this blog.
(Actually one of the best selfies I have ever seen was my sister's friend and her Frenchie. I will have to see if I can get that one on the blog. It was a classic.)
Without further ado, on this beautiful Friday the 13th, selfies courtesy of Nim:
At least his tongue is relatively back in his mouth.
He thinks he hears a bird.
OK, he agrees to look at the camera. :)
