Tomorrow is another long day of work. 1 hour prep, 1 hour drive there, 10 hour day, and 1 hour drive back.
Truly, this has adjusted my style and writing. I mist say that 3 days off in a row help take the sting away some.
My time is short, but I have been so all my life.
Anyways….. A year of blogging has not been unproductive for me. I have been in the habit of quickly taking pictures of what I do during the day and I am able to guage if I could have done more.
This weekend was fairly productive. Well at least for some of us.
One of the members of the village decided to take his bicycle apart. Initially, I was pretty annoyed. I wondered heavily about the hammer.
My annoyance quickly dissipated when I was asked by the 11 year veteran for a tube from Walmart. This was zero effort on my part. 3 tires on several bikes were fixed that I did not lay a hand on.
I was most assuredly outclassed in the speed and efficiency of these repairs. Kudos to the young man are in order.
Not inclined to sit high above two wheels at the moment, my Beloved sent me to REI to purchase specialty shoes.
I spoke with Nancy about all of my footwear needs and she provided me with these.
Here are the perks of these shoes.
1.Snow, Mud, and Rain Proof, (for now)
2. Wide toe box and narrow heel (just like my foot)
3. Ankle support with gator traps
4. Designed for barefoot walkers. (Have been all summer)
I really liked the shoes. I put them on and sat down to read a few blogs.
It did not take me long to realize this was a subtle hint; there’s a hike that I need to retry from Pueblo to Colorado Springs and summer wont be here long.
I found two things notable about these shoes. Without them knowing, this happened.
Yes, my little sister dared me to do something. Then…. This.
I listened to Lydia’s dare and took the mans invite as a challenge. I had to catch up. After all, I do have the footwear. This is where I am so far. I WILL catch up and Lydia, I did 10 times what you dared.
On the way I saw a way cool praying mantis.
The shoes were great and I am going to travel places in them, but Willow Manor had things needing planted. Before sunset, we planted 250 garlic and a 6×10 bed of hard red winter wheat.
Not too bad for a weekend I suppose!
Lydia is a great little sister and she keeps me motivated. I appreciate her little pushes to excellence.
Do any of you have a challenge you would like for me to try?
