Confessions of a Lazy Person : Cool Mornings

nature sky sunset the mountains

Thank goodness for these cool mornings or I’m not sure I would go running at all. I guess we’ll find out if the temperatures start to increase beyond 21 degrees. I’m wondering what other people do in the middle of summer – do you run only in the morning or at night when it cools? Do you even get drained by the heat? As soon as that sunlight hits my skin I want to stop running. I go from full tank to RED LIGHT ALMOST EMPTY within seconds.

Lets hope the mornings stay cool so I won’t have to invest in a cool misting fan head strap contraption.


Happy Father’s Day All You Kick A** Dads Out There

I’m married to one, a father, and he’s out at the lake with the kids on his own all weekend. What a great dad he is. My own father never took us on solo camping trips (there were 4 of us) but when we were older he ended up taking each of us, one-by-one, on a weekend getaway and I still think about that short resort trip in Ontario cottage country every so often. We played a lot of cribbage together, it might have even been the weekend he taught me how to play, and I failed miserably at waterskiing. I also took off one night of the two nights to the employee cabin to play Suck and Blow with a bunch of strangers. Oh life! You’re so strange. They were very welcoming but I wonder why I couldn’t have spent that night playing cribbage with my dad. Ahhhh now I’m speaking of regrets. Today is about him, and I love him dearly.

My camping loving partner is out there making amazing memories for his children and they’re so lucky he’s who he is. A fun dad. Happy Father’s day to all you dads out there, you’re all so different but you have one major thing in common. You know what it is!!

Music Break : New Neko Case Hell-On

Neko Case almost made me cry big ugly tears when I saw her perform in Vancouver ten years ago. She has a strong, beautiful voice that fills a room…and my heart. Neko Case has a new album out and the first song I heard Hell-On did not disappoint. Enjoy your day!
