I’m trying to do as many normal things as possible before rehabbing the summer away. Biking’s out, but I can still walk, so last Friday, the mister and I went to Jennings Environmental Education Center to hike and do a little bird watching.
I was thrilled/ecstatic/practicallywettingmyself when I saw that one of the Jennings trails is part of the North Country Trail. (Notice the little triangle on the right?) Oh North Country Trail, with your blue blazes, how I love thee! Remember when I first discovered that it ran almost through my back yard? (See “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes”) Ah…good times.
Anyway, back to Jennings. I’ll let the photos tell the story.
Nothing like a 90-minute hike to help you forget your troubles. Clears out the junk between the ears, you know? This weekend I’m doing a different type of hike: shopping at an outlet mall. Easily a 3-hour venture. I won’t be going with Larry, though. He’d rather surgically remove his own spleen than shop for 3 hours. I’ll be going with my trusty sidekick, Daughter Carlene.
Congratulations to Ali, who won the book “Strength Training for Women,” and Julie, who won “Body for Life for Women.” I wish I had a book to give all of you who entered. Thanks so much for reading and posting and throwing your names in the hat. I’ll do another giveaway next week!
