For once though, it's not work! The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally will start up next week so work is kind of dead this week and definitely will be next week.
I'm so sad.
Both my friend Ashley and my friend Mike are miles away from mobile communication on vacations this week. Ashley went to visit family in South America. I really wish I could have tagged along to take pics! Mike is off to Canada for a fishing trip with his buddies. Again, I'm super jealous.
That leaves me without my two favorite people to talk to all week! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing them both in PA at the end of August though.
I've got fun activities in mind to do with both of them while I'm up that way again.
I've been laid up the last few days thanks to putting an arrow into my leg. That sounds slightly worse than what actually happened but trust me when I say it's plenty painful regardless. lol I was pulling an arrow free of a tree trunk and when it came loose it ended up going straight back into my leg, nock end first. I would have rather the field point, honestly, because the nock is split and it really chewed up the deep puncture wound. Since everyone keeps asking - I did not have my phone or camera on me so I'm afraid there is no pic of my arrow sticking out of my leg. Sorry to disappoint! I do so enjoy grossing people out.
It's supposed to rain the next few days but I'm hoping it holds off so I can go hike a new trail that has a bog habitat. It supposedly has a few different varieties of insect-eating plants in there and I'd like to photograph them. I'm going to do some fishing at the lake there while I'm at it since I'm still working on proper casting for fly fishing. My go-to fisherman, Dan, has been a HUGE help with that. One of these days I'm going to catch something and I will proudly post my picture here. Damn fish.
