I totally forgot about getting the sandwich at 11 am, which is when I should get there to avoid the crowds as well as assuring they won't have sold out of their wonderful croissants. That is the best part of the BLT! Maybe tomorrow if I can keep it straight.
We have beautiful sunny weather today but it is only 46 degrees, and will stay mostly in the 40's for several days.
I have printed out several short hikes up in the gold rush country, but I will probably wait until next week to try them. I want to wait until I'm through taking all the antibiotics; everything has to be timed throughout the day and I don't want to have it ruin my time outdoors.
I've been asked if I am hesitant to hike alone. I would rather hike with another person, but that is more for the company it would provide. I have made up my mind that I refuse to be afraid of anything, including death, axe murderers, aging, being alone in nature, and a lot more. I still hope to see animals such as bears, wolves, and even mountain lions, but in the distance, please. Of course I wouldn't mind a wolf being close. But afraid? No, I'm not going to have fear. I've been working on it for several years now and mostly have it mastered, but a good hike alone in the woods and eventually an overnight should give me an idea how I'm doing.
I'm more afraid of not getting my appetite back than anything else, and shriveling up to a scarecrow!
