I have only been able to read a few blogs today as most have not appeared in my sidebar. I'll take it that most of you are just taking a break today rather than a problem with Blogger. So far I've had pretty good luck with being able to see the updated blogs.
I've had pretty much of a do-nothing day, but I'll make up for it tomorrow. I'm planning on checking out a couple of classes at the gym, and maybe a quick trip to Costco.
I like my new haircut but it still isn't what I need, so the next time it is going to be cut short. Every time I lean my head forward or look down, the hair falls into my face. It is very difficult to eat, in fact, without getting a strand of hair in my mouth. I don't know how people stand it. I liked wearing it pulled back, but that style didn't really suit me.
Backpacker magazine sends me an email update every week describing hikes and backpack trips that are worth looking into. This week they featured several in California, including a number of trips in the Shasta Trinity NF, which is where I am eager to spend some time and explore. I doubt that I can get away for a month or more, and by then I'll be looking at colder weather. I always liked cold weather hiking and camping, but it dawned on me that I'm not as young as I used to be and that maybe I should look for optimum weather conditions. That said, I'm thinking maybe I could just plan on staying overnights at a motel and then doing day hikes.
I don't know why I can't just sit still and relax for a few months especially after the tiring trip I recently made, but there are so many places I want to see.
