Happy Autumn Fall and Happy October!
There’s something about the Equinoxes more than the Solstices that leave me wanting a change or a wake up in scheduling, new energy, or being more reflective. Maybe it’s the equal length of day and night wanting balance. Maybe it’s the change in light, change in temperature. Solstices feel more about new beginnings; beginning of longer days in the winter, heat in the summer. Equinox’s are like the detox to the cold and heat or light and dark.
If August flew by without being able to catch my breath, September didn’t want to be left out. Before I knew I was back to rushing about getting places on time. Climbing classes have started again, the zoo closes earlier, appointments, the sun sets around 19.40 (why can’t the longer days stay? Because Earth has a gravitational orbit it needs to stick to so you get that sunlight Nat and that means a few months of less sun.). I say this every Continue reading “Autumn Fall Rescheduling”
Back in June we ran, okay walked our first and maybe last Spartan Mountain Series Race, the Spartan Super in Andorra. For the record I’ll run more Spartan Supers, but at sea level or low/foothill mountain range like where the Barcelona Spartans are held. The Andorra terrain and altitude got me! Thanks to them this Super took me nearly as long as the Beast a few years. I’m a sea level girl for sure!
Post race day we took our time heading back to the city. We asked for a later check out as we knew we’d be tired and we wanted to explore bit more of Andorra. The view Continue reading “Mid June In Andorra”
I’m happy sad August’s here. Happy the heat’s set in, days are sunny, the sea’s warm enough to cool off in. Sad, after being away on holiday vacay, yes I got away only as the cats with their multiple medicine came too, I’ve really noticed the days getting shorter.

We stayed in Spain along the Costa Blanca where the sun rose a little later than Barcelona yet set later. Noting sunset’s time checking the weather app then cycling back at dusk, the sun now sets what seems like 30 minutes earlier than it did before going away. Continue reading “August’s Here”
Sneaking off to beach for a dip to cool off and sunbathe’s now a daily thing. Being warm without being wrapped up in layers makes me smile. Feeling the warm sunshine on my skin makes me happy. My favourite season’s here, Summer!
Apologies for my Continue reading “Long Time No See. Summer”
The clique zero waste produce muslin bags. That save turtles, whales and other marine animals and birds from another mistaken jelly fish plastic bag that might end up in the oceans and seas and subsequent digestive death. Or from land animals and birds the same fate.
I don’t know why I didn’t order these as the beginning of my recycle less journey. The main reason I didn’t think to. Some in a local organic shop caught my eye, Continue reading “Cotton Muslin Produce Bags”
