Fishermen, dancers, runners, and musicians.

I usually keep myself pretty busy, but I’m doing a great job of running myself ragged lately! 🙂
Last you heard, I was heading over to O’so for their special release. Ooh, it was worth it!

We also stopped by at Central Waters’ anniversary party. Last weekend was filled with good beer and good company. We even ran into Sarah!

We had some wintery weather here, which made playing in the snow and ice a lot of fun.

The snow froze into ice on the end of my ponytail, and whenever I turned my head to look before crossing the street, I was whipped with that icy hair!

I finished up my run in time to head up to Wausau to take my gramps to lunch with an old friend.

Gary Borger is well-known in the fly fishing world, and he’s a fishing friend of my gramps’. I was reading one of Gary’s books, and he told a few stories about fishing with Grandpa a long time ago! How cool.

I was lucky enough that Gramps sent me home with one of his orchids.

It’s brightening my kitchen counter in a bud vase.

The middle of my week and weekend were dominated with photo shoots. I got the chance to meet up with a few running friends of mine who are being featured in Hoopla for their work on the Point Bock Run.

The race sold out in record time this year, and Brian and I are lucky to have registered in time! 🙂
I also had a photo shoot at Waupaca’s Ale House for River Cities Jazz. I know a lot of the musicians in that group, and it was wonderful to hear them play again.

It started snowing during the gig, so it was a slippery drive home. We’ve had our share of winter weather this week, for sure!
On Saturday morning, I was able to take in a rehearsal of the Point Dance Ensemble. I’ve known their director, Pam, since I was in college, and it’s always a pleasure to see what projects she’s working on.

I logged a few miles (indoors, sadly) and got ready to head north for the Wisconsin Trout Unlimited State Council Banquet. I sold tickets, as usual, and enjoyed the company of our state’s fishing community.

The live music this year was provided by John Greiner and Mat Buchman. It was a joy to hear them play once again.

There was a new award this year, called the Unsung Hero award, and each chapter had the opportunity to nominate one of their members. We were so pleased to be able to nominate Norb!!

I took photos of lots of the prizes, but I was lucky enough to win one. Here’s my haul…

Now I guess I have to find someone to tell me if I should hang this bamboo rod on the wall, or have it worked on and fish with it!
Brian was able to fix my car and is currently on his way home from Green Bay after working on it since Friday night. I’m so excited to get my car back 😀
Hope you had a good weekend! Happy Superbowl Commercial Sunday! Go, Pack, GO!

Miles this year: 29
