This has been a nice week. A little let up in the tutoring schedule left me time to get caught up on some things. While housewifery may not sound like a nice "vacation", I'm in an agitated state if it's not caught up, even if I'm not sitting in the middle of the neglected house. It's not great, but I'm out of agitation state. For now.
I was also able to do some much needed clothes shopping, which was timely since I discovered the missing jeans.
Chaco and a couple of friends backpacked and camped out on Pikes Peak last weekend. It was arduous, but sounds like they had fun and learned a lot to add to their backpacking skills. When they reached the summit, they found it amusing to be greeted by "tourists wanting photos of the natives".
Wolfgang had another successful cross country meet. Broke his PR time, but says it doesn't count because the course was easy. The main thing is that he's back operating within the parameters of The Agreement.
After a mid-week drenching, the weather got all pretty again. The leaves are just starting to change. Meego and I took advantage and had a sweet bike ride yesterday. Had to stop and say Hi to the duck and goose friends.
Speaking of wildlife, the deer have been helping clear out the neighbors' overgrown yard. As seen in this photo, the big one either shares my concern about the RV in front of the fire hydrant, or is just trying to help preserve the food crop for future seasons.
I hope the blog friends and visitors are also enjoying good times and balance. My busyness in the week ahead picks up once again, and it is nice to feel wanted, but I've gotten better at saying "no". I think I said it a good three times this week! And every "no" in one area means a "yes" in another. I'm looking forward to some good and fun dirty outdoor plans next weekend.
Just say, "Yes!".
