I can’t even believe that it’s been over two months since I last put up a post. I didn’t realize that it had been that long at all! I’m going to work on posting more regularly, so hopefully any readers I’ve had haven’t abandoned me!
I’ve been doing things, but I guess I haven’t really thought that they were necessarily blog-worthy topics. July was a pretty busy month as far as life goes, between my sister’s birthday, then my parents party, and then getting ready for the week of the fair (or as I like to refer to it, hell week). This year I actually didn’t have much going on for fair week since Dockdogs wasn’t asked to come back, so for the most part I help with photography and the parade. I also got to judge the BBQ competition, which was fun (and pretty tasty too!).
Then it was a week of nothing but working and trying to clean up my house because we were getting ready to leave for our yearly lake trip. I managed to at least get the kitchen cleaned up, which was my main goal, before we packed everything up and headed to the Lake of the Ozarks. It was a nice vacation, mostly relaxing. I got to spend some time with friends that I only get to see a couple of times a year and we went horse-back riding. Or at least attempted to go riding. We went from one field that had been burned down to one that hadn’t and there was a massive buck hiding in the waist-tall grass that spooked the horses and we both got dumped on the ground. It took me probably a good three weeks to really recover from that. I landed mostly flat on my back, but I guess the right side of my body took a bit more of the impact, and I had a pretty sensitive/sore spot right above my bum for a long time.
I took running stuff with me on vacation, but no running happened. As a matter of fact, no running, yoga, or biking has been happening at all since June! Which is a total pile of crap. I just haven’t been making the time to do any of that, then dealing with my fall, and now it’s time to get back on track. My eating has been not too bad, and I’ve managed to not gain back a ton of the weight that I’ve lost since the beginning of the year. But I honestly feel better when being more active and I need to make this time for myself. Adulting is honestly hard!
A few exciting things have been happening in my lovely life though. Earlier this month we closed on the property we’ve been trying to purchase for the past nine months. So now our total property it up to about 3.5 acres and includes an orchard! So I’ve been researching a bit about fruit trees and what I need to do to get that back into shape. We’ve also been looking at architects and house plans and I think we have both of those more or less picked out! So stay tuned for some crazy house building nonsense as all that approaches. This is the first time I have ever had to deal with any of this stuff, so it’s kind of intimidating all the decisions that have to be made!
I’m also looking forward to getting out there more with my bow, since archery season is fast approaching as well. This will be my first time bow hunting and I’m pretty excited/nervous for it. I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
Well, I think that about covers it as far as current life updates go! I promise I will be making an attempt to blog more frequently and I do have some fun stuff I want to share with you all!
