Boy, it seems like we’re getting all the rain that we where missing this summer just in this past week along. Now, I know I can’t complain because of all the hurricane activity along the East Coast and the Gulf this past month or two. That certainly puts things into perspective.
It is the weekend, finally, and after my first full week of my new early morning hours, I feel pretty happy with the change and how my body has responded to it rather quickly. To keep in that habit, at least for the time being, the concept of sleeping in on the weekends now means 6:30am instead of 5:00am during the week. Doesn’t sound that much better, does it?
With summer winding down, there are fewer opportunities for us to get out on the bike trails and, for me at least, strap on the rollerblades for a few hours. We originally were going to have a picnic at the forest preserves today with a few friends from work, but that’s obviously not going to happen. I actually didn’t get a chance to skate at all this week, but I’ll spare the details on that. Cindy and I are heading out to Schaumburg today to go to dinner for my aunt’s birthday, and had planned to spend time on the trails at Busse Woods before that, but that’s not going to happen either.
Aside from the weather, this time next week we’ll be in Door County, WI for the first time, and we’re looking forward to that. I just ordered a new camera from Amazon for the trip, and it should be here by Tuesday just in time. I’m looking forward to taking lots of photos and trying it out, as well as just relaxing and soaking up the not-so-hectic life for 4 days. Hopefully it will help hold us over until our Maui trip in February, or at least until the holiday time off for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Don’t know if I’ll be posting here again before our trip next weekend, but I’ll try to make a point of blogging about our activities while we’re there.
