Procrastination. It's the best way to explain my preparations for this upcoming move on the 12 of July. It still doesn't seem real; a feeling me and my wife have been experiencing since we were in Newfoundland buying our new house.
I never got out paddling much this week at all. From deadlines which prevented my dodging the stuff "I will do later" and two days of intense thunderstorms; I only got on the water once. It was nice to see my Old town kayak finally getting some good use and a good night out showing Jamie around the area.
It's too easy to blow off cleaning up the basement or purging my old clothing prior to this move.
And with a sunset at 8h55.....it honestly doesn't leave a whole lot of time to cut the grass either.
Something I have really been putting off is running. I've had every excuse in the book after my injury; and really I am missing tendons which is a good reason to not run. People have been enforcing my lazy thoughts with confirmation of not running being a good idea. I gladly took their advice.
While I put on a few extra pounds I never really noticed until a few days ago I stepped on my scale. It was a real wake up call for me. While weight is nothing but numbers, the effects are very evident in this "beach body" season! While I'm far from vain, something needed to be done. And two nights ago the numbers stairing back at me gave me incentive to get back to a healthy weight.
Walking a km for a cool down after a 30 minute barefoot run; I took in the old growth pine around me. There are many things I will miss in this valley...the forest being one. My hardened feet picked up crushed stone as I stepped over the human made path through this grove. I was inebriated again. The high of a run is something that I crave....I've just been too lazy to put in the work to get there.
Nice and early I returned home to get the basement purged of all our junk.
Arriving home my wife was working her butt off in my absence. She had opened up my sons water table to see tadpoles swimming around! Our back lawn is covered in tiny frogs.
...I think I'll wait to drain that water until the last day possiable.
Sometime procrastination can be good.
