Yesterday, after an intense morning of running errands and clearing up the disaster my apartment had become over the past couple of weeks, I went downstairs in the building’s courtyard for the annual BBQ that the strata puts on. Most buildings don’t do cool things like have BBQs even though they should since it’s a great way for everyone to get to know each other. One thing I like about our building is how social it is. I feel like I’ve joined a community here.
Today I got up at 7:00 but I was feeling a little fuzzy from the beers I’d had last night so I decided it was time to hit the Grouse Grind again. That’s one thing that suffered over the last couple of weeks and I’ve been itching to climb up there again. My legs held out alright and my time wasn’t too seriously affected by the layoff. I took it at a comfortable pace and didn’t try to push too hard either.
Next couple of days will be organizing and packing for camping as well as digging into a few more things I’ve been wanting to do the last couple of weeks.
