These last few letters are not my best work. I know I'm always saying there's a lot going on here, but y'all there's a lot going on here. I am pressing on though, and will finish this A to Z challenge. It will be more whimper than bang, which I think is what I say every year at the end of April.
I really want to stick to my theme (change), but some letters require more creativity than I can muster at the moment. How 'bout I just post some pretty pictures instead?
Everybody loves baby bear cubs, don't they? As my grandma would say, "Oh my stars!" Are they the cutest things ever, or what?
W is for a Walk In The Woods
Hubs and I took a stroll through the Smokies, and by stroll I mean hike. A hike is more than a leisurely meander especially when you only have a general idea of where the trail is going and it ends up going much further than you planned.
Yes I sometimes require a bit of managing in the great outdoors. Ahem. I always begin super happy, chatty, and optimistic, but as we go along I realize there are parameters to my happy chatty optimism.
Heres what I need-
I need to know how far we're going. That seems pretty basic, and while we always have plenty of water, a map, and a first aid kit, we might only have an approximate idea of mileage. 3 miles, 6 miles, whatever. Yeah what.ever.
I need snacks. Like a toddler. I can't hike four hours without regular breaks for protein. You might know this phenomenon as 'hangry'.
I need the knees I had at 20. Can't really do much about that, but a steep climb downhill makes me wish I could.
I need a hubs who can work with all of the above.
That I've got covered.
