In which I admit to emulating relatives I never in a million years expected to emulate even though I love them

lightsAnd also extreeeeeeemely randomly, via a sorta spammy type email message, I came up with a couple of doodlies that I actually want for xmas! That is, I shop on Etsy sometimes and I got a message from Etsy suggesting things for *other* people. There wasn’t anything on the list that I would buy for any of the few people on my list but lo, there were a couple of things *I* liked.

The GG is off gallivanting around with our North Country Trail folks this weekend. I wanted [badly] to go with him but I was feeling a bit behind in putting together our meager xmas festivities and I have very little vacay time left (as you’ve heard me kvetch about before) so I am here at The Landfill. I will do a lot of walking this weekend but most of it will not be in the woods. Alas.

It was a kind of slodgy day over at Cubeland and I was feeling a little blue about life in general, not that I have any reason to feel that way. Mouse and I had plans to eat at the Jolly Pumpkin but we were hanging loose about whether we would meet down there or she would park at The Landfill so we could walk down and back. I was fighting off laziness when I told her it was her decision. My gamble paid off, she decided she wanted to walk down and back. I knew that walking would be the best thing to do and that I would feel happier if we did but I needed someone else to decide that for me. And, you know what? I am sooooo glad we did all that walking!

And what fun! The JP was crowded when we got there and they gave us a 30-45 minute wait. Okay. We walked up to the second floor bar and there were two empty seats there! We grabbed them and ordered some cab and our loverly bartender told us that we could eat our food there if we wanted to. And so we did.

The crowd ebbed for a bit but when we left it was overflowing. It was loud there and so much fun. Still, some of those people were beginning their evening out and I am glad I am well past the end of mine.

Love y’all,
Kayak Woman

P.S. I did remember to schlep my leftovers home tonight!

    So which relative were you emulating?

    Yes, which relatives? I always feel like walking/running/doing yard work makes me feel better. It’s good for the body and mind. What did you order at the JP?
