Weekend Musings: July 17, 2021

I can’t help but lament that summer is already halfway over, and I feel like I haven’t really done anything yet?!

I mean, I did take my trip to Minnesota, but technically that was still spring.  I need a summer vacation! 

So, in pretty boring news, I’ve been taking evening walks, reading, and doing a bit of purging and organizing.  I did take a load of stuff to Goodwill a week and a half ago, and I need to keep up the motivation! 

I also finished my latest puzzle about a week and a half ago.  Time to start a new one!

My workplace is all going back into the office full-time on Monday.  I’m torn on this.  I have enjoyed working at home, and I have enjoyed not having that long, long commute everyday.  That said, the decision has been made, and I am looking forward to having some more in-person interaction.  Cora and Yellow are going to be in for a rude awakening!  And I’m going to see a lot more sunrises!  Long-term though, I hope I’ll be able to do a hybrid schedule where I’m only in the office a couple of days a week. 

Yesterday afternoon I took a little trip up to a beach about 20 miles away, and did some rock hunting.  I found some pretties for the polisher.  It’s so weird to be able to look across the water at Canada and not be able to go there!  The border has been closed for almost a year and a half!  That has had a huge impact on the economy of my community, which has always relied on Canadian shoppers and tourists.  Ah, the things you don’t see on the news.  

Yesterday marked the three year anniversary of the day I began my big road trip.  It has been craving a road trip soooo bad!  I just want to pack up and hit the road!  Unfortunately, with the job and all, that’s not going to be an option for a while.  The good news is that I have a week away coming up in a few weeks.  That should give me the break I’m needing!
