March Challenge! Baltimore Inner Harbor to Red River Beach!

Happy Friday, and more importantly, happy March!!! We are almost to spring, although the recent dumping of snow in the northeast has us feeling otherwise. As February wrapped up, we finished our challenge strong and made it from Buffalo to Baltimore! This month, in order to encourage my parents to get their butts moving a [...]

Yeast Confections: Sourdough Starter

In our quest to eat more healthily, I've decided to try making—and sustaining—sourdough starter. Again. This time, hopefully successfully.

A Foray into Indoor Climbing

Last Friday,  Ellie and I finally took up a long-standing offer from a friend of ours Zac to try out indoor climbing. We had both been once or twice before, but not for many years. I had a healthy skepticism of my ability to make it up the wall, but putting that aside, we gave [...]
