Learning How to Play a New Game

I randomly ran across some photos of people playing at the Shoreditch Bike Polo Invitational.

It looks like a lot of fun, so I did a little research and found a group here in Austin that plays. They meet on Sundays at 2:00 and Thursdays at 5:30 at Eastwoods Park. This is also an excuse to start a Life List. Got the idea here. Item number 1. Bike Polo.

Shoes for Fall

With El Nino forming in the Pacific, this fall and winter is supposed to be cool and wet. I've got an overabundance of sandals and flip flops, but very little to keep my toes warm and dry. So, these are what I've been thinking about: Ciao Bella Finland, Clarks Wallabees, and French Sole Sloop. Easy, simple, goes with everything.

Oh, and I would love this to wear when it gets chilly. Though, I should probably start looking for something similar in my price range.

(Jay just gave me a lesson with Photoshop to modify these images. Hope I can remember what I just learned!)

Quinn and Leo

Choosing the puppy was kinda hard, but we did it. Meet Leo.

(My mom is saving Oliver from a rogue puppy in the background)

Update: Quinn really loved the little black female puppy that she is holding in the second photo - so she is going to take both Leo and this one home in a couple of weeks and decide between the two. oh decisions..... I have a feeling we are going to end up with two little puppies and a Rigby to keep them in line. totally fine by me.

Update to the Update: Quinn has decided that Leo was her first love. So, two little cream colored dogs at home it is. Can't wait until we get to bring Leo home!

Reading Room

Quinn, Oliver and I are going to pick out a new puppy today at four. I am very excited for her and am really looking forward to meeting our newest family member. In the meantime, I'm browsing around blogs and craigslist on breaks from loan application reviews from West Texas. I would love this couch with this quilt. My mind drifts to an imaginary room where I can read in peace and quiet on the couch wrapped up in the quilt until I fall into a long deep afternoon nap.

From here and here.
