We had a house showing this morning – no idea what will come of it but it did get the house spotlessly cleaned and it did get me and the pups out early and on the trail – so that’s something.
We headed for Payne Bluffs, namely because I felt like I need a good uphill. Stunned myself by going up and back in just over an hour. Really? Gosh – guess I got really strong on my “long walk.” And what a treat to do the up without 25 pounds on my back.
Most importantly, the dogs enjoyed it tons. Abby, for some reason, was in a totally giddy mood, grabbing sticks (and practically entire trees) and dashing about with them, tail wagging furiously. Total goof!
So that was fun. And then back home and feeling soooo lazy. After lunch I napped and couldn’t motivate myself to get off the couch afterwards. Very unusual. But then I was back online with sheets.
Let me explain. I told Simon this morning that my new brilliant idea was not to buy a new fitted sheet at all because we had some old ones in the shed somewhere in a storage container. But then I remembered that they were really old sheets and – well – I happened on to the Daniadown site – and there they were: the right colour and all. So I ordered one. Yes – one. Only ordering what I need because, well, I also happened to buy two books that cost as much as the sheet: hiking the Slovenian Mountain Trail and hiking the Traumpfad from Munich to Venice. Both are 500 some kilometres in length and both are calling to me.
Fun bedtime reading.
That’s it – my exciting life today!
Did I keep you up?
I do have two things on my list that must get done before the end of next week: a total winterization of the garden and a good full day hike. Both are waiting on a sunny day.
