I am finally coming up for air. These past few weeks have included working on Saturdays, late hours and lots of verbal over stimulation. The days also included lots of chocolate which I love, but tends to cloud my brain. Today so much better with a Saturday off, a yoga class in the morning followed by Lap Sit story time at the library, and a toddler gear swap. A toddler gear swap is a great way to pass on your hand me downs and come home with nused (new used) clothes for your child. We had ours at the library after story time. I came home with 2 boxes of girl clothes for a family we know that could use a little extra help. It is such a great way to give and receive. We realized we have lots of boys in our community and not many toddler girls. Slim pickings on the toddler boy clothes.
I am now the proud owner of these Black Diamond Trecking Poles. My hubby gave them to me for my birthday which was on Thursday. This is a sign that I might be not as strong as I used to be. I love hiking with trecking poles because my knees are not always happy with me when I do lots of uphill hiking. I may exchange them for a set that folds down and can be tucked on the outside of a backpack.
