Day 648: Getting Out of the House

I’ve got three days free thanks to vacation time, and I gotta get out of the house! Like, GOT TO. Yesterday was a great day of furniture-making, for the most part, broken up with a trip to the vet and some evening volunteer work… today, I have some coursework to do, then finishing laundry, then I have to get out! Go for a run, a walk, something. My terrible tendency is to homebody things.

 

Day 496: Walkin’ for the Weekend

It’s a recharge weekend — picking up a car, getting out of town. Originally it was an overnighter thing, but for foster cat, practical and budget reasons, we’ve converted it more to day trips.

Hiking is the focus; there’s a local trail association with six affiliated hiking trails, and we’ve decided to try to get all six done this summer. Today/tomorrow will be two; later we’ll get to the others.

It’s exciting! I’m looking forward to getting out there and getting our nature on, and hopefully recharging a bit after a long winter’s… er, winter.

Foster cat’s still mental;  slept with him again last night, and again was loved on something serious. What my wife calls “the zoomies” strike just before dawn, so I was up at around 3:45 alternately having my hand adorably attacked or listening to a small goblin race around the room.

So there might be a nap in play today — or a delightful degree of exhaustion tonight. Either way, I’m looking forward to the marriage of exercise and outdoors…
