I Know What You Did Last Summer

Ok, maybe I don’t know what you did last summer, or even this summer. Now that we’re closing in on back-to-school and Fall, it’s time to start thinking of warmer clothes and holidays already. Yes – some people are already doing their holiday shopping. Stores are putting out winter coats. Before you know it, there will be Halloween decorations and costumes on the shelves.

So… what have you done this summer? Did you even go outside at all? Even the Great Indoorsman headed out a few times, enjoying the sunshine and scenery. Why not share with all of us what you’ve been up to. Did you travel anywhere cool? Did you visit some local outdoor attractions? Surely there is something!!

When you do spend time at home and indoors, hopefully you are spending at least part of that time reading what everyone else has been up to in our community.

The Great Indoorsman Heads Outdoors

So what happens, exactly, when the Great Indoorsman attempts to spend time outdoors? I’ll tell you – I slept for hours when I got home… after I hugged my computers and blew kisses to my electrical outlets!

I went hiking with a friend, two miles up to Rattlesnake Ridge. The scenery was beautiful, definitely. But I admit I started to get the shakes after about 20 minutes of being up there in all that fresh air and sunshine. Where was the fake glow from the screen? Where were the comforting sounds of the fans whirring quietly to keep my machines nice and cool?

I’m not sure how often I may repeat this endeavor. However, at least now we know I can survive it.

I Hiked up Rattlesnake Ridge

Oh, what fun! Here are a few fhings that happened on this hike up Rattlesnake Ridge:

  • I broke a sweat for the third time in my life.
  • We met a man with seven wives.
  • I saw a cloud shaped like Steve Wozniak.
  • We were ticked for yodeling in a “No Warbling” zone.
  • I decided that wearing a dark t-shirt was a stupid idea.
  • We took the escalator down.
  • I realized I have an irrational fear of pine trees.

Much love to my friend for taking me (and packing a homemade lunch to eat at the summit) today.
