Today’s chores included a long walk, a trip to the dump, baking more sandwich loaves for the week, making a batch of hummus, and setting up this standing desk converter.
Saw this beautiful friend on the front walk on my way in from my walk earlier today.
I went on another long walk by the creek earlier today. I am grateful for everyone else I saw wearing a mask like me and concerned at the people, more than those with, who were not wearing them.

Looking for every tiny scrap or handhold right now and remembering this quote helped a little. Rest in power, RBG
The air has that first hint of crisp that makes the fire pit all that much better.
I needed to touch earth this week. For me that means spending time with my craft beer industry friends, enjoying their beers and gifting then with my own humble efforts. My heart containers are now full.
My usual emotional coping techniques aren’t making a dent in some day job related frustration. Maybe a change in venue will help.
Finally got out on the park trail by the creek this morning. A little distressed that half the people I saw didn’t have masks. The trail is not six feet wide. Otherwise was a good walk.
I think I earned this for yesterday and today.
I had to order new pants for fit for the first time in decades. Usually I buy pants when the old ones wear out. This is what a month of dedicated exercise and a whole food, plant based diet with no added oil has wrought. Well on track to be in the best shape of my life by fifty (by 2023.)
