A Sundress in December

Random: This a house I drive by every
week - that is seriously a giant monkey head!
  Last weekend was incredibly busy going out with friends, lounging in bed, and doing this insane 20.6km hike (accidentally). I would rather not admit to any more stupidity in explaining the accidentally part other than it was an absolutely beautiful day and I was a bit deprived of nutrition, sleep, and plasma -as I switch from whole blood donations to plasma on Friday.
  A slightly painful, but quick week of recovery lead me to anther fabulous weekend of with family friends over for dinner Friday night followed by a glorious day of drinking beer at the Belgium beer cafe Ponsonby unto which we finished our beer passport! After sun bathing in the court yard of the cafe, we meandered down the P Road's market day back to my house for more sun bathing and a refreshing dip in the pool. A little babysitting last night lead us to be much better prepared for tackling the Te Henga Walkway hike again today.

  The weather was a bit off; windy with rain turning us around, but we still a had close to perfect 13km hike preceding more lounging and trip planning. With only a few weeks until Christmas, sunny, summer weather, and our big hikes down on the South Island, my work out routines and general life function is thankfully going up without much difficulty.

  Tuesday I am going to trivia with the girls, donating plasma again on Friday, Christmas in the Park (concert) Saturday, more pool bathing and another go at Te Henga should round out another life filled week. Its hasn't been an easy couple of months and I am focusing on what I can do, want to do, and what best fulfills a healthy, quality of life in order to combat the natural difficulties in life. So here's to another week of sundresses!
