Today was just a collection of various things, but I was very productive. Good to have energy on a day I can use it for things of my choosing.
For openers, a guy who helped spot me for a hike long ago contacted me and said he had to come to Ludington. So we had breakfast together and got caught up. He's also a hiker, who has done several hundred miles of the North Country Trail. We had a nice visit. At the end, he reminded me that I still owe everyone a second book. Yeah, I know. North Country Quest has 6 1/2 chapters done and holding.
This was the hike I blogged about in 2009, Only a Few Miles But Oh So Good. The snow was about 3 feet deep, and I snowshoed 4 miles to connect two previous hikes. It was a neat little jaunt, on which I saw fox tracks
On the way home I stopped at Meijer to get groceries. They've been doing something on the edge of the parking lot for over a week, but I didn't know what. Aha! Tesla charging stations. Pretty cool beans.
Worked on a contract job. Mowed some grass (that is a big deal... second mowing this year and no machine issues). Now I'm going to make yogurt. My work week starts in the morning. I just have to keep reminding myself that those paychecks are my ticket to being able to work less and write more sometime in the not too distant future.
