My goal for Camp NaNoWriMo has been to get back into the habit of writing each day. I’m sure it won’t be something I will keep up in August and September, as I’ll be putting in more miles to train for the GAP Trail Relay, but not only do I love NaNoWriMo, I also love the people I’m sharing a virtual cabin with for camp.
So far this month, I’ve been able to get just about caught up on my RSS feeds, have done some neglected work on my website (although still have lots to go, but the month is young!) and generally enjoyed getting back into this habit.
Today, while I had plans to wake up early and go running, my body had other ideas. And that’s okay, when I did wake up, even though the temperature was great, I had no desire to drive to the park to go run long. So hopefully tomorrow I’ll go early to yoga and get a loop or two in before stretching (and then going to the Pittsburgh Pirates Pride game).
So instead, I was super productive around the house today. Lots of laundry, brewing beer, some baking, weeding and some great self care: right now I’m sitting on my deck, enjoying the beautiful weather and clear blue sky, sitting under my new deck umbrella with an iced coffee and listening to some podcasts on a little bluetooth speaker. Really, just a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
And writing this has been fun, a ltitle different than my normal writing: an actual blog! I’ll be walking down the street to a friend’s for game night later, but for now, enjoying this space is exactly want I want to be doing.
Edit: Still working on a good way to add posts from my phone (with pictures), but I’ll keep working on that this month! Hopefully you enjoy the view from my deck though!
