Summertime…and the living is easy.
We’re been on temporary hiatus from ShiftFWD’s main endeavors the last few weeks since our Epokka Kickstarter campaign ended so that we can get some rest, recoup, and enjoy the summer. We’re still deciding what the next steps for Epokka will be and what exactly we’ll do next. We’ve got lots of ideas, but they need to simmer and get refined.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you some of the fun things we’ve been up to outside of work.
The week before last, we bought a pop-up gazebo so that we’d have a place to better enjoy the back yard. We’ve been doing small things like adding lights and making it cozy so that it’s a nice place to hang out. And I have to say, it’s amazing! We’ve pretty much been living in it since we got it. In fact, I don’t remember the last time we ate indoors.
On Saturday, we decided to take a trip to Birch Bay, WA. We usually go at least once or twice every summer, but somehow we’ve never managed to go this exact time of year before. We were surprised to see the tides so low.
When we were coming back, I started to get tired and sun soaked and had a surreal type of feeling like we had been walking a long time in the middle of the desert. It was amazing…and a little odd!
I felt kind of sorry for it. I hope it gets to see water again some day soon!
