I did a volksmarch today with Richard and Teresa. I also took along Charka dog (shown at left). Poor thing is just whipped. About the last mile she was hanging back. She'll be 11 in November. I think I'd better keep her to the 1/2 hour walks from now on.
I'm pretty much beat myself.
The walk was organized around Standing Bear Lake (about 144th & Fort Streets), but it took us through a few of the neighborhoods there. I saw some beautiful homes and landscaping. I also saw a few homes that should have been trashed on purely aesthetic grounds. (One big house was painted a medium-to-dark blue -- yuck!)
My own house is a pig sty. Again. In fact, I think the pigs have left because they can't stand the mess. I have laundry to do -- dirty stuff to wash & dry, and clean stuff to fold and put away -- and there is crap to pick up everywhere and vacuuming that desperately needs to be done.
And yet, I want to sit and knit.
I don't wonder why.
