Just a little catch up. (not ketchup)

Gracious!

I left the charger to my beloved Chromebook in Perry and I hate wordpressing from my phone, so I’m tardy to the blogging party this week. Woopsie.

Got rained on like crazy at the FSU game but it was still a blast. As always, I’m interested to see how the rest of the season goes. Last year’s National Championship has spoiled me. 🙂

I’ve still been walking every day, and keeping track of my progress along my pretend Camino, courtesy of walking4fun.com. About 38 miles into the trip, and it’s INSANE to me that I will only take 2-3 days to walk what I’ve walked in a week. Here’s where Walking4Fun has me – not the most scenic of routes, but that’s not the most important thing, now, is it?

My mind is everywhere tonight. It’s been a long day of organizing the house and I’m flat out pooped.

Here’s some good music. Because you deserve good music.

Day 2 and Complete Randomness

Alrightie, so I have now officially walked 2 DAYS IN A ROW, people! This is not actually a grand reason to celebrate, but it will do. Here’s where I am on my fictional Camino, thanks to Walking 4 fun –

Yep, I’m moving right along — almost halfway to Roncesvalles. Is this entertaining to anyone besides me? I dunno. Oh well. I think it’s cool. 

And here’s what I might look like in 2 years when I am 7.2-ish miles in:

Aaaah! Isn’t it pretty?! I will be one of those little dot people! 

Obviously I’m ridiculously excited about this — oops, have I said that before? I am going to say it so many more times. The views and the travel are big reasons for the anticipation, but more than that, it will be time to reflect, time to spend with my Dad, and time to really get down to the basics of life…utter simplicity. I have to be careful not to wish my life away these next 2 years waiting for Camino time. 

Next up for me in the next few days:

  • House cleaning and purging — simplicity is addictive!
  • Looking for some sort of way to make money so I can keep up this whole being-at-home thing.
  • Packing for one more trip to Tallahassee for the first home FSU game! woot!
  • Walking, walking, walking, walking

Here’s some good music for you while you eagerly await my next mind-blurb. So much fun. I wanna hang out with these guys.

A little light lunch blogging

So, it’s safe to say that I’m slightly obsessed with the Camino. I don’t want to flood twitter or facebook feeds with endless posts, so I’ll do it here. 

Yesterday I joined up with the local American Pilgrims on Camino (APOC) group, and can’t wait to get involved and start really talking with people who have done it. At this point I think I could talk (or listen, or read) about it all day and never tire. I’m even getting up early in the morning before work to get more reading done. Obsessed, I tell ya! I wish I could buy my plane ticket to France now, just to be sure that it happens. Part of me worries that my excitement will taper. This can’t end up one of those things that I only talk about, it just can’t. I refuse to wait til I’m old to live. 

Kate showed me a song yesterday. It’s wonderful, so I’m gonna show you. Yes, it’s going on my Camino playlist. I think I have a playlist problem. 🙂
