Sunday afternoon after an extremely pleasant trip to Trader Joe’s yielding THREE boxes of vegetable Masala burgers (mmmm) and other assorted goodies we drove to Bellevue to some delightful walking trails for a nice hike with the rogs in the sun.
The weather on Saturday wasn’t so great. Josh went skiing and I mostly A.D.D.’d around the house for a while, culminating in about an hour and a half on the Latest Painting Project: Holly Woodlawn. Felt good to paint again!
Happy hiking face! We had explored these particular trails before. It’s about a two-mile hike to a nice waterfall; two miles back to the car. Just enough of a hike, and not terribly steep. Although my shins are a little tender today.
When we returned home I set a goal for myself for fictional writing for one hour minimum…but I’ve been blogging for so long I’ve completely forgotten how to write fiction! I pulled out some how-to books to peruse in my “free time” (mwa ha ha). In the mean time I spent an hour writing about how I was having trouble writing…and about our hike. I changed the names, of course. Heh.
This morning I woke up about an hour earlier, went to work earlier, and was therefore able to return home around 3 and take the pets for a gorgeous romp at the dog park. I had a nice phone tawk with my Broad at the park and right as I was taking the pets back to the car, who should show up but animal control! I felt like yelling “HA HA MY DOGS ARE ON THE LEASH TODAY” but why push my luck? It’s so satisfying to not break the law…every once in a while.
