The Day Between Hikes

So here’s what happens in “retirement.” People either sit back and do noting, or, more likely, they become completely obsessed with something else that takes the place of a regular “job.”

In my parent’s case it was lawn bowling. (yeah – I know, huh?)

In my case, it appears to be hiking. Of course, I consider this far more legitimate and inspirational and productive than lawn bowling. But then – well – it is a slightly biased opinion.

So today is one of those days “off” – a between-hikes day. This is when I catch up on domesticity. I launder, bake, clean, garden, shop and walk dogs. Yes, I also waste time on Facebook but that’s domestic, right?

At any rate, today turned out ever so much nicer than forecast so, in the afternoon, I took the dogs for a walk and ran into Simon on his break! Yay! We walked quickly and shortly on the Galena Trail – Shanara was ecstatic. Daddy! Yay!

Abby was pretty happy too. When we got back to the parking lot she tried to get into the truck with Simon. Such a loyal dog! (sigh).

Tomorrow, a KMC hike and I have everything crossed that the forecast is wrong again.

It’s going to be fun!
