Oh. My goodness you guys. Life just keeps on keepin’ on. Late last week, I looked at what I had coming up on my calendar for the next month. Which was nothing. I had a whole month of just routine and chill. The gears started turning, and I started to ponder all sorts of projects I could fill that empty slots with. I’m already starting my marathon training (by way of completing my couch-to-5k), so maybe yoga? Another much-needed Whole30? Do some new decorating/reorganizing in my apartment, or at least clean it?Maybe book some weekend getaways with the kids?
But the Universe, as usual, had different ideas. I interviewed for a new client, and they asked me if I was available to travel. Usually I can make that work for the right project, so I said yes.
“Great,” they said. “We’re flying to Australia on Saturday. Go ahead and book your ticket.”
So I’m going to Australia. Traveling to the other side of the planet. Next weekend. Not freaking out at all.
Plus, my house looks like this right now.
Yeah, that’s not changing any time soon. Just make sure you wear your Level C PPE when you come to visit for the time being.
On the bright side, I visited my parents in Oregon over Memorial Weekend, and we had the most fabulous hiking day ever!
We hiked the Rainie Falls trail along the Rogue River. It’s just under 4 miles out-and-back along some gorgeous river scenery.
The trail itself was pretty rocky and a little technical. But it had a steady pace of rolling ups and downs, so it made for some good exercise with plenty of lulls to enjoy the views.
The weather was hot and sunny, but the trail was along the southern shore of the river and well-shaded, so it was at a reasonably pleasant temperature.
It was a great way to kick start a (hopefully!) long season of hiking around the Bay Area, and southern Oregon when I have the opportunity! And the perfect way to blow off chores for another weekend.
Did you have a good Memorial Day Weekend?
Any plans for getting outdoors this summer?
Go make it a great day, kids!
