I’m scared for me. I’m going out for a longer hike today. It’s expected to be warm. Both the peaks and the final gill descent are rocky/bouldery.
I’m not sure whether I’m strong enough yet. And on the last similar long hike that I did, I ran out of water and struggled with the last descent in dehydration.
I’m scared for my boy. He’s not been well. He’s visibly sluggish. He hasn’t enjoyed the lakes like he used to. He sticks to me when he’s in this state, but I won’t be around today.
I’m scared for R. She has to manage the boy and my mom today. Mom switches between dumb and forgetful, and scheming and pigheaded. She’s a handful even when I’m around. R will have to manage her alone today. While also taking care of my boy.
Finished third week of getting at least a 10K steps daily.
Took the dogs for long walks in the downs both days of the weekend. Long, slightly hilly, and entirely off road. Just the kind of walks I love. Grabbed a coffee and some quiet time at the café in the evening, and then dropped K off at Woking.
Finished second week of getting at least a 10K steps daily.
Went for a long walk with the dogs – down the downs and along the river. Went to town to grab a coffee and sit quietly at the café for an hour with a book. Then walked down and up the high street in the freezing cold. Met an old park run buddy ( Charlie) and his owner.
Now resting on the sofa, not thinking about work tomorrow. Instead, still slightly lost in the twobooks I finished this weekend. Both dealt with loss. One also had a lot of trail walking and outdoors.
If there was a theme of the week, for this week it’d be ice.
A bit of snow, a lot of hoar frost, a lot of freezing fog …. a lot of beautiful, crispy, clean white.
Cooked a bit. This is the only thing I took a photo of – stir fried beans with cooked-from-frozen curly chips and chicken schnitzel.
The screen in all its glory during the setup
The new screen before mounting. The old monitor is partly visible behind.
Got myself a new monitor. It’s a beautiful, 21:9 ultra wide, curved screen. It’s also got a full powered hub so I’ve now got a single cable connecting everything to the laptop.
Sadly, Apple doesn’t support text scaling for non 4K screens, so the text is way smaller than what I’m used to. I think I’ll end up increasing default font sizes across my most used apps soon – Chrome, Obsidian, AS, VS Code.
Opened and finished another of the small stash of wines we’d picked up from Lidl. Like the ones before, this did not disappoint.
Spent a chilly Saturday in bed with the three of them. bliss
Chewie and I out for a walk on the ice before the rain took it all away
The day of peak white. And earlier today before the rain wiped out all the white 🙁
