I’m doing lousy on the waking up early front. So far, the earliest I’ve been able to get up is 9:00. Last night I couldn’t sleep until 4am. Ugh!
On the plus side, I’ve at least been going for walks consistently. I’ve been waiting until around 7pm when it “cools off” to 95 (but at least the sun’s going down).
Last night I got to my usual walking spot…. to find that it’s fenced off. Boo! I like walking and running on the unpaved side of the Rillito, but they’re paving it over. I knew they were doing it, but I was disappointed to find out they’re doing it now (and disappointed in general).
It kind of put a damper on my walk. The section I ended up walking doesn’t have a drinking fountain (very necessary in the lovely evening weather). All the people who usually walk in the blocked-off section had to walk in the paved section (so it was twice as crowded). I probably wouldn’t have walked as far as usual (it’s around 4.5 miles), except I was on the lookout for a bird I saw the day before. Ha.
I ended up seeing two other hawks, but not the original bird I was looking for (something huge).
Not too shabby.
