Our quest to hit every state park continues starting today. We are finally going CAMPING!!!!! Now it finally feels like summer the way summer is suppose to be. YAY!
The week has been good and summery. The mr and I started off the week with a picnic by a river and went for a little hike. We also took a coffee walk on the beach on different day. (We are really just trying to get outside as much as possible.) Then there was a day we checked out some real estate which turned into a hard pass, but still pretty cool. An old printing press. Too bad the building was shit and the dealing with the chemical aftermath alone was just to much for us to want to think about. Oh well.
What else….. We did a lunch with Meg and Barb where we sweated our way through bowls of hot soup and talked about things only sisters should talk about. I took a trip to the farm with Coco, Miley, and Barb to eat watermelon, play tether ball and pick flowers which coulnd’t have been sweeter. Coco LOVED it down there (his first time there) and now every time I see him he asks me to go to the farm (SO CUTE!!!) And toppers. My garden is going gang busters and I have harvested sooo much greenery which is the best because all I want to do is eat greens.
Other big news, I gave myself a kitchen haircut. What is that you ask? We it is when I walk into the kitchen, grab the kitchen scissors, pull my hair out of the bun on top of my head and pull it to one side, cut off a chunk a few inches long into the compost bin, then place my hair back into a bun. Takes all of one minute and from what people tell me about how much they spend on their hair, saves me a shit load of money. Look at me, winning at life. On the bad news front, my wheels powder circuit board blew. So that means I can’t throw until I get it fixed. Soooo pissed, but also grateful for the mr and him taking it apart for me, figuring out what was wrong, talking to the company, and sending the part out to get fixed. That right there. Love.
Oh and I have been biking all over all the days and up some pretty big ass hills so my legs are a little tired and sore which makes me wake up in the middle of the night screaming (my screams are become more muffled as I get use to the pain) with Charle horses. For real, the worst. But also kind of funny??
Anyway. Summer. And today is going to be great. CAMPING!!!! Allis State Park, one that we have not gone to yet. I am so excited! I mean, it is in the woods and theres gonna be hiking, and reading by the camp fire, and lentils on a camp stove. Sleeping under the stars. Maybe some bears?? How can it not be amazing? Yippie!!!!
