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.
