Today is going to be a hot one out here in the EC, and most of Southern California for that matter. I went for a walk around the lake this morning, trying to sneak it in before it got really hot. It was the first time I have done
it alone, usually I walk with Birdie but she was unable to come today. It is a much different experience walking alone, I prefer company but I won’t be so hesitant to go alone anymore. You are more aware of the distance and time that has passed, than when you are involved in a conversation.
Next time I have to be careful of what I listen to on the way to the lake. I had Puscifer’s Rev 22:20 stuck in my head for the first mile of the walk because it was the last song I heard. Yeah, not the best of songs to be hearing while seeing sweaty, shirtless, old men run by-and I do mean old, like 70+. EEK! Dude put on a shirt and pull those tiny shorts down, I’m seeing the bottom of your bum!
I tried to work out some story ideas in my head, but I was easily distracted by sites around the lake (not the bad sites I just mentioned). Despite the heat all of the animals ducks, bees, lizards, and other assorted birds scampered around enjoying the sun and the occassioal dip in the water. I did stop for a moment and took some pictures. Yes, I am totally obsessed with Hipstamatic right now. =)
I didn’t walk as far as I normally do with Birdie, with the heat and being on my own I thought it was best to lean towards the side of caution. I went a little farther than the two mile marker, since you cannot walk around the entire lake I had to turn around and walk back the way I came. After yesterday’s trip to Henry’s and various other errands I think I have walked around 7 miles since yesterday, here I come skinny jeans =P
The heat went up about ten degrees during my walk and I spoiled myself by putting on the a/c on my way home.
Now onto the business of cleaning. I am going to have two moms here on Sunday and the place needs to sparkle. Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!
