As in my hike at Old Rag mountain today has been rained out….she says as she listens to the gentle pitter patter of rain falling just outside her window.
To be honest, I am relieved.
I didn’t realize Thursday night’s Nats’ game would take it out of me.
Not the game per say, just the length of my day, and the extra energy spent getting to and fro.
It took it out of all of us.
By 3:30pm my boss was taking a just let me rest my eyes for a moment on the couch in our lobby.
He needed the rest because he was going back for another game last night, this time from one of the owner’s boxes just behind home plate with gourmet food and high-class wait staff.
Life is rough for some people.
My hiking partner also kicked me to the curb for a weekend with friends anyway, so I was going to go it alone.
But on that trail, you are really never alone.
One cool thing about hiking, most everyone is friendly with one another.
So now, I am going to slip back under the covers and rest my eyes for a moment.
And then putter around my house.
Such a lovely way to spend a rainy day.
Special thanks go out to those who were praying for rain today!
