Rambling Over Coffee: I will not be camping afterall
I'm on my 4th cup of strong, hot, black, Sumatra coffee this morning....
I've just returned home last night from another whirlwind trip cross country. I only took a backpack and packed light as it was to be a really short trip; Arriving Friday night, leaving again Saturday morning. However, always the planner... I decided to pack as if it were for 2 or 3 days instead. Just in case. Good thing I did, as things didn't go exactly as planned and I ended up staying another day/night. And after another 9 hour, 5 state drive yesterday, I arrived home last night just in time to see my husband for a couple hours before he had to fly out this morning for a business trip this week.
I had intended on doing some primitive camping this week, as I knew today was to be warm and sunny... I stupidly thought that might mean the next few days would as well. Checking the weather forecast a couple minutes ago I see that we go from 60's today, down to 31 degrees tonight.... in anticipation of not only temps falling to the low 20's but... snow.
I'm not a fan of snow.
I was born and raised in it. Grew up in it. Frigid temperatures that rival the temperatures of Siberia. Sometimes we were colder than Siberia. Currently I live in a region a bit warmer than that. On purpose. And although I love camping and hiking, I do not love doing so in snow. I hate everything to do with snow... leftover from a lifetime of living in it.
So... no, I will not be camping after all.
And because those plans changed, I now find myself with some days to fill... or should I say some days to procrastinate doing the jobs around here that need to be done, that I don't want to do?
So many things I need to do around here, but camping would have been a great way to ignore them.
Just like I'm typing this post and sipping coffee to procrastinate paying bills. Which is what I was doing when I decided that after balancing accounts and doing the budgeting, I would take a short coffee break and come here to type out whatever came to mind.
It ends up, it was a lot of nothing.
Meh, don't mind me. It's just the coffee talking again anyway.
