Joe picked me up this afternoon so we could go shopping at Sportsman's Warehouse. He is planning a backpacking trip with a friend, of about 4 or 5 days. He brought his pack over and showed me all the items he was taking - some I agreed with but I don't think anyone needs a big air mattress to get a good night's sleep under the stars. They will be "cowboy camping" (no tent) in an area where the weather will be below freezing, so I made sure he had an extra layer of warm clothes for "in camp". Now I've got the bug and want to go hiking/camping. Joe's birthday is in a couple more weeks, so I was glad to have the opportunity to get him some things he really wanted. And I can borrow them from him if I ever get away on a camping trip!
My hair looks absolutely awful the past few weeks and I have no way to get to my regular hairdresser, so Joe stopped by a place he takes his girls to get their hair cut. My head must be several pounds lighter now. Oh, and I bought a squeaky toy for Rocky at Sportsmen's Warehouse! I thought he might completely destroy the house while I was gone, but it wasn't too bad.
I had another dumpster brought to the front of my place and I think I got rid of the last of the recent tree/bush trimming frenzy. There are still some leaves on the rocks and driveway, but they will be easy to sweep up and throw out with the trash. I still have a tree in front that needs a couple of branches taken off, as well as another large bush that should have at least half of it taken off. I'll spring that on Joe after he gets back from his camping trip.
If my furnace was turned on and the pilot lit, I might have run it for a half hour or so this morning to take the chill off. But as long as I can manage without it I will be happy to not spend money on the gas to run it.
I'm getting hungry and I will not be able to wait until the normal dinnertime. I figure that is a good sign for me because I never want to eat much, if anything, in the afternoon or evening.
I hope you are all having a good day, and can keep smiling.
