Autumn Fall Rescheduling

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”

Mid/Late Spring Zoo Photos Part 1

I’ve been keeping zoo photos to a minimum for a while. Mainly to avoid repeats, same old, does she ever take photos other than at the zoo. Sometimes!

Absence

Finally a moment to catch my breath and say hi! I’ve missed stopping by checking.

The past week’s been little loco. Aj had the vets for blood tests, I’ve been getting to the gym a little earlier but I haven’t been getting up earlier and feel like the mornings half gone. I’m still job hunting (fitness training thing isn’t working out), I’ve been caught out in the rain, had to buy a emergency waterproofs to cycle back in as mine weren’t doing their job, hung the entire contents of my bags out to dry (no drying Euro notes on the washing stand which I have done!). 6 weeks were up on my ear piercings and I couldn’t remove them. I knew I had to unscrew the backs but I couldn’t get a grip on them. I was just turning the whole earring around and around. I ended up going back the tattoo place for help. Thankfully the receptionist was laughing with me and with a knowing smile asked if I’d tried latex gloves. Nope. They did the trick. I got the feeling I’m not the only one who’s erm, how the F do I remove these!

If I can just…

Weekend Friday Favourites.

I’ve signed up for my 3rd Spartan Race! I’m running the Super, 13km+ in May this year. I couldn’t decided between running both the Super and the Beast again. I opted in the end for the Super to give mojo I can run the Beast again. I’ve still to run the Sprint but I don’t think I will as I know I can do the longer distances. So I’m back in training for obstacles races not that I haven’t been since the last one. The money bars and walls I need to be more lemur.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
