Monday ZOOMED by...

Every time I looked at the clock today, I couldn't believe it was the time it said...

It was (and still is at the moment) SUCH a nice day outside today. I couldn't stay to work late... It would have seemed wasteful... And it's not like my work is going anywhere...

I took Noni out on a trail that is near our house. The last time I did it, we were gone for 3 hours... We hiked to the end of the trail, then took a side trail that spit us out in a neighborhood in Juneau, then had to walk home from there... This time, I drove to the parking lot at the trail head... It's like 2 blocks away, but I didn't feel like walking there this time.

It was soooooo gorgeous... One of those days where I am so happy to live where I live. Just enough nip in the air to keep you from overheating, but not so cold that you freeze...

The bad part about the trail is the lack of consideration on the part of the various dog owners who frequent this popular trail... Seriously, there were "land mines" EVERYWHERE... Someone even took the time to bag one of the piles, but then left it there... How rude!!! Long story short, after watching where I stepped for the entire walk, I missed one and stepped full into a nice soggy pile... and my shoe has a (before this, unknown) crack in it... Lovely...

But, on the bright side (and with the amount of sun out there today, who couldn't look on the bright side), both Noni and I got lots of exercise... I'm hoping that this year will be better than last and we will be able to get out more often.

Such another world you live in when you compare the countryside of The Netherlands and Alaska.... All the gorgeous nature you have makes me jealous!
