A Fairly Perfect Day!

Simple things, even helping out family made for a pretty damn good day!

Today so far has been a fairly perfect day for me!!  I managed a better amount of sleep last night than I have the last several days though I was still up earlier than planned but around my typical time prior to this hectic week.

I started the day as usual with a good breakfast and puttered around for a while, my only major plan was to go to my Aunties to do a washer / dryer swap at noon but I started thinking about my Aunties poor dog which I love who was in dire need of some good brushing and a paw massage for his arthritis.  I decided around 8:30 just to wander over and spend some time with my bootsies (my nickname for him) who has been my best friend through a lot of tough times.

After spending some time with the dog one of the housemates woke up and wandered a bit and helped me out with some tasks around the house and we decided to go for a hike at one of my favorite places.  We packed some sandwiches and grabbed camelbacks and off we went to a place I haven’t been to in almost a year for a good hike.  While it reminded me how out of shape I am as I haven’t hiked much lately it was a great hike and we took our time getting home as he is fairly new in town and I showed him some of the nice areas here.

On the way back we stopped for a pair of cigarillos to puff on while we cruised the interstate to get home, had a good meal of chili and here I am typing this waiting for laundry to finish in the old dryer before we make the swap.

All in all a pretty perfect day, simple but busy.

    1. It’s been a while since I’ve engaged in a good serious hike, I forget sometimes how cleansing it can be to get away and focus my energy on just getting through it. Looking back I suppose my best times were when I did more technical hiking. While not super technical this one was somewhat technical (I didn’t want to kill my hiking buddy). I’ll work back into it!

      1. So important to get out into Nature!! Just that releases endorphins :)) I worked REALLY HARD yesterday shoeing horses — awoke today with sore hands, stiff back and walked with a limp. But I worked through it as the day moved on, with supplements and a day free of horsing (went to town for “supplies”). And now my satisfaction level is sky-high; pain free and ready to enjoy the weekend :)) and the horses I did yesterday are very happy, too :)) Have a great weekend :))
