Lovelies, my absence can be easily explained by two words: Spring Break
This semester has proven more demanding of B.’s time, so we really savored our week by just doing things together. This involved a lot of watching videos, sleeping in, and, because I’m lucky my man enjoys a good bargain as much as I, thrifting in different stores. Ergo, I’ll be sharing a lot of our treasures on this Thursday’s Thrift Trip.
As far as projects are concerned, I’ve been working on several things but got slowed down because of a badminton accident where my partner mistook my hand for the birdie. (Hahaha! Just kidding, Dilshad!) It was kind of funny, actually, until the knuckle of my pointing finger started to swell up, and I couldn’t hold anything properly for a couple of days, including scissors and needles.
Speaking of hikes: B. and I went on a couple with friends. This pictorial was taken from Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park (Whew! Long name!).
I love nature. Trees, stones, leaves, mud… I love them all! This hike, however, proved to me how “citified” I am. Walking in the forest is so foreign to me it’s almost scary. I’m sure I wouldn’t be able to do it alone. If I got separated from my friends, I’d probably run around like a headless chicken into tree trunks. Just screaming and crazy running-hitting trunks-then falling on my butt again and again.
Aside from Joyful, another doggy hiked alongside us. Cy is a 160-pound black labrador puppy. That’s right: PUPPY.
Kennessaw Park was doggy heaven for him. It just rained so it was kind of muddy but he enjoyed getting dirty. And, as soon as he spotted the stream, he ran towards it and happily frolicked. Free bath.
Look at him enjoying the grass. Hahahaha!
Here is an embarrassing moment. We had to cross a small stream to continue our hike but we weren’t prepared to wade across. I thought, “Oh well. Maybe next time“, quite relieved because my boots weren’t tall enough for the water. But I turned around and I saw our friends awkwardly treading the log to get to the other side. Even Cy tried to do it but fell into the water (which I bet he enjoyed). My heart jumped into my throat.
I’m scared of heights. Unfamiliar stairs, bridges, cliffs — put me any place where there’s a chance of me falling and my legs simply freeze up. So here’s me trying to cross the log. I know it’s not that high and I wouldn’t die if I fell, but, really, I was scared to bits! I was laughing the whole time but I was also sweating like a pig, my face flushed like a beet.
The bright side about this is B. He never left my side and patiently coached me the whole way. Another was Cy who kept trying to reach me as if he wanted to help me out. Sweeties, them both. 🙂Blue Knitted Hat and Gloves: Roekl, thrifted back home Purple Turtleneck Long Sleeves: thrifted back home Gray V-neck Tunic: thrifted back home Black Work-out Tights: Danskin, $5 from Marshalls!
