I really do take MUCH too long to post. I need to get off my worry of having mediocre posts. I’m such a perfectionist sometimes, gah.
I love this song atm.
End of the summer. Okoboji trip with my two bestest friends in the entire world. Had a Freakin. Blast. :) Speaking of which, I needa print off pics for our awesome lake rock frames!
After that I went on a canoeing trip with my oldest sister and her family. New experience, awesome people, amazing time.
Not only was the canoeing a new experience (I’ve been camping before, and that never gets old, I love it) but the bus trip to and from Minnesota was also a new experience. Good way to get from place to place – much cheaper than a plane ticket – but also much much slower and B..O..R..I..N..G. Unless you meet a cool old woman like I did. :)
The first campsite we stayed at had a rocky shore bordering the woods next to the water, and Tristen, in looking for a quiet place to read and write, stumbled upon a spot where someone had made little rock statues lining the rocks closest to the water. My first impression was that they were little people. :) But it was very cool to see; Tristen and I added our own little rock people, and put our initials by them.
- I’m not much for canoeing. I don’t think I’d care to repeat it anytime soon. However I would like to try kayaking.
- I can carry my weight in crossing the portages and setting up camp and making dinner.
- And do it ALL in flip flops, mind you. (That’s no small feat when the terrain is rocky and rough and uphill and downhill and slick and you’re carrying 30-50lb bags on your back).
- I’m not that much of an outdoorsy person. I don’t mind camping out for a few days, and I love making dinner over a fire and chillin by the water, but I wouldn’t want to do it for weeks like adventurous people do. :P I like luxuries like brushing my teeth and real toliets that flush.
- Canoeing and camping out is very, very relaxing but it leaves wayyy too much time for THINKING!
