[personal|photos] A wee bit of updatery

Last night I slept eight and half hours. Then I got up and went for a two-hour walk this morning, including the hidden canyon stretch of the Springwater Trail. I always feel good when I'm walking like that, which makes me wonder why I don't do it more often.

While down in the greenery, I ran across these two gentlemen:

(Sorry for the blur, this is a tight crop of a phone cam shot taken from a distance.)

A bit later, walking past the police station, I saw another group of birds:

Clearly, there was a theme to the morning.

Laying low today, except for [info]the_child's late afternoon lacrosse game, and a possible dinner with [info]lizzyshannon this evening. (We're still discussing logistics.) Likewise laying low tomorrow except for taking [info]the_child to choir practice. The only other things I am doing are morning bloggery, writing time on Their Currents Turn Awry, and packing for this coming week's travel.

The week itself is going to be a mother bear of a trip. Even so, I'm close on the book, and expect to be done within a few days despite travel silliness. I'll take a couple of days' brain break, then be back on Going to Extremes. But this weekend... low and slow.
