Plans up in the air...

Thursday, September 26, 2013

I like making solid plans well in advance, but this weekend's plans are still up in the air. I don't feel like packing until I know whether I am leaving tomorrow or Saturday. My brother said he would call me tonight, so I am hanging by the phone.

It was a good day today, despite my anxiety over our plans. Jeremy and I took our 13 year old niece, Allegra, out kayaking today. It was pretty perfect conditions... about 70 degrees, sunny, and almost windless. She had a ball, and I learned a few things too. Jeremy did an actual lesson with her. When I started he just put me in a kayak and said "paddle". But today we went over different paddle strokes and turns, and I practiced my sculling stroke until I could get it on either side. It isn't perfect, but it actually draws my boat sideways now. We were on the water for nearly two hours, but only paddled for about an hour of that. We never just go mess around on the water,. We are always going somewhere. It was a nice change of pace.

Came home after lunch, and took the dog for a walk. When I got back the postal service had delivered a big box of new books I ordered, so I sat down and read one while I waited for dinner. Dinner still hasn't happened. lol!! I wasn't very hungry this afternoon, but I am starting to get hungry now, so I am going to go assemble a quick salad. I hope everyone else had a good day.

    Sounds like a great day! Have you checked out Goodreads.com? If you create an account, click on the top of the page where it says explore and then hit giveaways. I've won five books and they just show up at my house! Completely free! They just want you to review the books after you read them. Just thought I'd share!
