I was suppose to work this weekend which is how I have been spending most of my weekends lately but a smart friend convinced me to use my time for some fun on Saturday and some practical responsibility on Sunday.
My friend likes to hunt. I am not a hunter. However you may have noticed I do like the out of doors a lot and while he was proudly showing off his hunting spots I couldn't help but notice...
How perfect his land is for Mountain Biking.....Skye and I just may have to pay him a visit on a non-gun toting weekend. We won't play there when bullets are flying. We aren't crazy. Plus, we would scare his precious deer and pigs. No really...can you see me on the back of that bike riding that trail saying "woohoo!" While a pig looks at the crazy city girl and shakes it's head and laughs? Ok, I'm not sure wild hogs have a sense of humor but maybe?
This was a friendly spider apparently. The zig zag pattern is kinda cool but I let my phone get the shot.
We did go hunting for poison ivy so I could learn to recognize it and fall the other way when I am out riding!
Then somehow I shot guns. Yes me...the woman who doesn't like guns shot not one but 2 guns. The .22 rifle used for hunting made me really nervous even though it shot easy, accurate and with no kick but put that .38 magnum in my hand with this big burst and loud bang and there was this crazy rush.
I may have cleaned my friend out of rounds and owe him some ammo. It was really fun to shoot but let me be clear, I shot paper and beer cans and plastic targets.
All Gods living creatures are safe. Actually this was an amazing cow we saw on the road on the way out. The deer were amazing as well but I was driving and didn't get a shot of them. I think there were 18 eating in the field beside the highway.
Sunday wasn't nearly as fun. I spent it doing some much needed cleaning out of my garage. You see my garage had become a place to store stuff to eventually throw away but a lot of it was stuff I wasn't sure the trash man would take. You know, old TV's, printers, lawn mowers, vacuums, scanners and things. Well I put it out along with the piles of junk I had in there that I was getting rid of and about 40 minutes before I finished up some people came by asking if they could look through and take some stuff. They took everything I was worried the city wouldn't take! I am happy to say that my garage is in a happy state and my house is a little closer after this weekend. I feel good about this and appreciate the help of a friend who pushed me a little to get going on this project which I have been putting off for months. Step one in the "fix the house to sell the house" project. This is something I have been talking about and thinking about for 6 months. It's time. I love my little house but it is time to move on.
More decisions have to be made...what to do with my 1996 Chevy Camaro for example. Stay tuned.
