Yesterday I went to a nice BBQ picnic with Anna and the rest of the Mennonite volunteers. After I was able to Skype with David again, which was so nice.
Today I ordered some hiking pants—two pairs, each only $9 a piece. What an incredible deal. I also ordered some merino wool baselayers at half off. I’m slowly continuing to add to my gear for the AT, but I think I’ll wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals to finish up my list.
Started watching a Netflix TV show, Orange is the New Black, with Kaytee this afternoon. I’ve always hesitated to start TV shows because I know I’ll get sucked in and watch them for hours straight. Such is the case for this show…good thing winter is right around the corner.
Alamosa had its Fourth of July fireworks tonight, since they had to be canceled due to the forest fires a few months ago. It was nice to lay out in front of the open valley sky and watch them with friends.
All in all, a good, productive and relaxing three-day weekend. Back to work tomorrow.
