eKateKateKatarinaBallerina!!

It's been raining here too!!! THANK GOD!!! We had plans to squeeze the Lemmon today for my second attempt at leading a climb, but alas, the much needed rain changed our plans. However, I'm hoping the rain has helped containment of the Prison Camp fire lower down on the mountain.

Tomorrow, there's no stoppin' us!

I adore you, sista!!



Ohhhhhhhh hey.... I got my very own crash pad.... which thrills me to no end!

I always stand like this.  &#40;no lie&#41;     <br/>

Sullly... that is a fantastic photo... I love the colors and the contents inside... your description makes me quite hungry! *thank you*

Enjoying life in that my mom sent me home with scores of jars bearing the plum jam she makes every year. This round she added the perfect amount of sugar.

My parents planted the tree back in 1957 to honor a baby my mom lost, seven months into a pregnancy. They named her the same name you have, Leggs. My parents had five kids after that.

Thank you for sharing your words, Sullly ... thank you so much. I am sorry for your parents loss, and happy they continued forward to create and nurture the beautiful family you are a part of today... and the beautiful woman, friend and mother that you are.

~much love... always.

It's all about the rain, right Leggs?

Well yes ... and magic hair that can predict rain!

What's a Moke All O Me?

Kaity asked me that question as she waded into the swift running cold green bottom-of-the-reservoir water.


I told her the answer was obvious if she looked at the river bottom.


As she gazed into the emerald river? The Moke got her!


Now I think she understood.


Oh she got it all right...


Then it was ON!


2 Mokes on the river bottom are worth less than


2 Mokes in hand


Get your booty down into this water, NOW! She commanded.



Nothing doing kid no Mokeolumne!

Those photos of Kaity are all about her eyes and hands...

Love it! Thanks for posting!

Such a cute son, Leggs. Love your robot pose above. Hope to see you in person at Facelift '13. How great would it be if both you and ekat could be there...

(thank you for the compliment about The Pickle... I love him so much! he worries me to no end, but he is such an innately caring, loving and giving young man, despite the normal worries and decision he makes I don't always agree with, I know deep down he will be just fine)

Facelift 2013:
Oh Sullly... that would be just perfect!
I can honestly say, I have "met" some remarkable women on this forum... would love to actually give lisa mae hugs to you both in real life.

{{If my photoshop skills sucked less, I'd photoshop a pic of the three of us "together"! hahahhahahahhaa!!}}

Hey there Miss Leggs ~ I'm rooting for you on your lead climb ~ you've got it, have fun :-) !!!!

That means so much to me that you think so, Gal ... YOU are a f*#king badass climber, I find myself in awe at your talent and ability to keep a level head. I am SOOOOOOO terrified of heights, the last time Mr. Bee and I tried up at Ridgeline on the Lemmon, I FROZE at the second bolt. FROZE. (no meltdown, I simply stopped moving ... and then calmly came back down.) (shhhh, don't tell anyone!)

Don't even worry about freezing up, it happens... just trying is the first step, then you'll be up to the 3rd bolt, next the fourth, then the top. I joke about "team climb" ~ if you freeze up and know it's not happening, no worries, a lower, then someone else gives it a go... try it on toprope and see if it feels more manageable. The lead head is a tricky thing and can mess with us all, some more than others... some friends I know never get freaked out... I am not one of those. And then i can't imagine what it would be like with an added fear of heights... keep on doing what you're doing, and it'll feel more comfortable as you expose yourself to a lot of different climbs... you've got it!!! Keep going for it! Did you know that the other day i was at the crux of some thing and it started hailing on me? Dang, that was a lower off & team climb episode ;-)

It IS normal to freeze up?! *Phew* Cause the first time I literally FROZE. Like, I could not move one more step up! (shit show!) I was only 15 feet off the ground! (something is seriously wrong with me! I've jumped out of perfectly good airplanes, I cannot move UP a rock I've sport climbed before?) Hahahahhaha! I was slapping myself on the head on that one!!

Today... well... today I went to Windy and learned a bit more about safety, as mentally I was thinking about the young Tito ... I figured, "OK, Lisa Mae... it's never a bad idea to review things."

One of these days!!

Gal, you should teach... have you considered that? I think you would be rad to learn from! Patient and understanding, with the right amt of "you go girl" enthusiasm!

Leggs something I've found useful, and this doesn't just apply to a rock climbing lead...

when you tell yourself you can't make it? When you think you won't make it?

You're too scared. Too weak. Its too unknown. You lack the confidence. Dark clouds are building. Its freaking going to snow in August, man!

Try the old two-step:

1. Acknowledge it - ok, I'm too... whatever, to make it. Got it.
2. No Premature Turnback - ok, you can't make it. But you have to go till something turns you back. Can you do the next move? Then do it. If you can't do the one after that, well, that's your turn around point. If you can do this move, sorry, you're not there yet.

That simple little mental exercise, don't turn back till something forces you to.... has got me up a lotta sh#t.

I KNOW I can do it... and you know what? I will! This I know about myself ... for sure. ;) And, I best get my sh#t together so we can climb together, huh?
