Summer of Fun-Week 3


SAW:   I found myself getting into "travel mode" as I leave tomorrow for a trip with the Tribe...or as Hubby affectionately calls them "The coven". 

  Hair cut, colored and toenails buffed and polished (poor nail gal had her work cut out, let's just say I'm not a regular when it comes to tending to the nails and it was a long rough winter when it comes to the state of my toes).  

  Boarding pass printed, passport in my purse, luggage packed and tagged...Yep, I'd say I'm as ready as I feel I need to be.

HEARD:   Unlike last week, all the things I heard this week  were good sounds (well, maybe the news that was whispered at WW wasn't so great- but hey, it's summer time and that margarita was so worth it,!)      

  • The silence of the mountains.  
  • The laughter of friends-and their daughters (who are growing up to be really neat young ladies)
  • The silly conversational attempts of Thing 1 (No son, watching Titanic will NOT put me in a "ready to cruise" mindset).  
DID:   Sunday morning I drove back up to the camp to join hubby. 
 We took a little road trip, and found ourselves at a national forest campground.
   I suggested we park and walk around the lake.
 It was a lovely stroll through the woods but as we returned to the car, the camp host was just fixing to issue us an envelop to pay.    Seems what we thought was public parking, was actually parking for those who were planning to tent camp.   We explained our intentions and he waved us on our merry way, noting "no charge".    

  Monday, the wind picked up at the camp, so I decided to go exploring the town of Salida.   Wow, what a difference a week makes.   When I visited last week, it was a sleepy little town.    This week, just like the rising river, the tourists seemed to be out in fuller force.    I did stop by the town's indoor swimming pool-which are actually indoor hot springs...soaked for a bit and used their showers.    

Tuesday I returned home and have spent the rest of the week tending to some random chores and just hanging out.    I read just one book this week (I know, slacking off, eh?) but instead found myself binging on several different shows (Netflix-The Bodyguard-highly recommend, along with the Netflix movie "Like Dad"...hoping to find a couple engaging movies or books to help pass the 4 hr flying time to Miami tomorrow).

All in all, another great week filled with a little bit of this...a little bit of that...
Until next time...
