No Sir ... I Didn't Like It

What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time, it felt like fall. I even posted about it. A year later it is hot and doesn’t have that fall crispness. Notre Dame lost their first game. Santa Clara lost their first game. It feels completely different. The wife has even suggested that she may be open to Saturday activities together. I don’t like it. It doesn’t feel natural.

Labor Day weekend felt completely weird. I didn’t hike because of the foot and the heat – I really missed being out on the trail. I did my Sunday chores on Saturday. We did the Mission mission on Sunday which was the only thing that felt normal. Then on Monday, which felt like Sunday, I stayed home and pretty much vegged most of the day. I did absolutely nothing. I did not walk on the beach as I planned. A little reading. A little writing. A whole lot of nothing sitting in front of the fan. No Sir … I didn’t like it.

This weekend I will be doing a hike - foot or no foot. The tendonitis is being stubborn but I am still planning a 7.5 mile hike to Nicholas Flat. The hike is supposed to have some strenuous parts. We’ll see how I do. As for Cathedral Peak, for scheduling reasons I will be doing it on 14 September – health and weather permitting.

  1. I know how you feel, as I spent my weekend exactly the same way: sitting on the couch in front of the fan. Except I was drinking copious quantities of lemonade as well. And I did a little BBQ. But other than that: nothing.

    Good luck on Nicholas Flat, I think it's supposed to warm up again this weekend! I'm hoping the thunderstorms will be gone and I'll be back up in the Angeles...
