down the hatch

Usually do a couple of Duolingo lessons and this blog entry thing in conjunction with one another, but yesterday, that connection got broken. I did duolingo on my phone while waiting for the Green Carnation concert, which was awesome, and featured a lot of songs from A Blessing in Disguise, as well as most of the new album, but I did not do my blog entry at that time, because I kind of hate putting it in on my phone. The issues with the spark people app and blogs are endless, and they just don't care, so...if I can help it, I won't put in an entry on my phone. Only problem, I forgot to do one afterwards. Oh well. Not like I haven't lapsed before. Just weird how usually the missed days are often around holidays, even if yesterday's had nothing to do with any holiday festivity.
Didn't feel guilty about it, though, which is different than last time (or was it the time before?) I've got enough of these more or less in a row in to have a habit going where I'll just pick up again if there might be a gap here or there. So here's today, another beginning of a streak. Like I said, I've scribbled on enough days in a row to make it less than easy to figure out when the one just concluded might have actually begun.
Went for a wander today, in the vicinity of 4 miles, in about 80 minutes. I did look around, took a few pictures, stopped to smell all the lilacs I passed by, because their time is just about up for the year, so the time was more like 19 minutes a mile, a relatively leisurely pace. Took a trail behind my old high school and slogged through some hay behind the middle school. Well, it's more like mowed grass, but they waited long enough to mow it that the dried grass was long enough to possibly be baled up. Decent wandering, all told.
