Today I had a pile of things on my to-do list, not the least of which were running and snapping a photo for my Project 365. I was in a quandary this morning about my run because there was just so much to do today that I didn’t feel I had the time to squeeze it in. In the end, however, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and get my exercise with my camera instead. So, on my way to the grocery, I went to my new favorite hiking spot and lost myself in my photography for a while.
No really, I seriously did lose myself for a while! I got so carried away shooting the beautiful autumn surrounding and wandering along the trails that I suddenly realized I had no idea where I was. I am seriously such a rookie at this hiking thing. I finally consulted a trail map and realized that if I stayed on my current path there was no way I was going to make it home in time for my little one’s school bus! Yikes! I quickly looked for an alternate route back to the parking lot and had to force myself to keep my camera in check. (Okay, well that proved impossible and I did keep shooting all along the way, but at least I did try to limit myself.) I hustled along the trail until I finally began seeing some familiar surrounding.
Happily, I even found time to dash into the grocery and I made it home in the nick of time for the school bus.
The cleaning will keep until tomorrow…
