Summer catches up with me: week in review

Last week felt like a blur of unproductive yet tired. It was hot – not “Montana hot”, 99 degrees hot. It was smoky – not bad, but enough to make me (more) tired all the time and sting my eyes. I was at a conference half the week – how is it possible that sitting in an air conditioned room listening to people talk wears you out? And between the conference schedule and heat + smoke, I didn’t run even once. This paragraph is the last of the complaining though, I promise. On to the good parts of the week.

Did yoga 5 days. I still only made it to the studio once – not really taking full advantage of the unlimited month here. I have lofty plans to change that this week.

Finished an experiment. Technically I finished this more than a month ago, but I needed to preserve the bacterial cultures and only finally managed to get it done last week. Theoretically this is the only lab work I’m supposed to be doing this summer, but thus far I’ve been on campus at least once a week. So we’ll see how that actually turns out.

Posted my first giveaway. It’s right here. You should definitely go enter.

Went camping. Highlight of the week. I always wake up a bazillion times a night while camping, yet I still wake up more refreshed than at home thanks to the cooler temperatures. Due to our location at one end of the campground, we were able to walk a couple hundred feet away and set up the tent in a more secluded spot.

We also tried out our new inflatable kayak – the humans are fans, the dog still seems undecided –

and (non-inflatable) hammock.

And made s’mores, obviously. Leveled up with nutella.

Then we had to come home and unpack all the camping gear: the low point of every camping trip.

What’s your favorite place to camp?

Best s’more variation?

    Agh. Unpacking after camping freaking blows. Especially airing out the tent. I usually put it off a few too many days. Which then of course brings out some interesting smells. Sleep though. I actually can’t think of a time when I woke up in a tent feeling “tired.” Like I could stay in bed longer, sure, but I always wake up feeling refreshed and like I got a good night’s sleep. Its that damn fresh air, I tell ya.

    Now you’ve given me the camping bug. Jealous.

      Ummm that reminds me…there’s something I forgot to do while unpacking D:

  2. Wow! What a beautiful camping spot!

    I never would have thought about putting Nutella in s’mores. As soon as my gluten free graham crackers arrive from iherb I am trying that asap!

      Honestly, I didn’t think to buy chocolate bars and just went through the pantry and found something chocolate….
      But we’ll pretend it was a brilliant idea 😛

  3. Camping is so fun. I used to do it every summer but now we go glamping (sleep on the boat and eat in restaurants.)
    You make me want to go again.
    5 days of yoga is pretty impressive too.

    Thanks for linking up.

      I have nothing against glamping either 🙂

  4. S’mores might actually make camping worthwhile for me.

    We’re unpacking from a beach vacation and I swear there is sand all over everything. It’ll be weeks before I get it all cleaned up.

      Sand is the worst.
