Mount Everest!

4 Apr

Or so it seems to me – I have finally reached my goal of walking all the way to the top of Maple Hill. I need to figure out how to put pictures here and show a picture of my Mt. Everest. I feel like I should have invited friends over and had a party. Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow night. My knees hurt more coming down the steep part, but up was slower. I found a rock at the top that I could sit on, and sat there for a few minutes glorying in my personal summit. Surprisingly, after I was all the way back down, I was walking a pretty good clip (for me) and the entire walk only took 15 minutes longer than usual.

And some of that was taken up by talking to a neighbor, the lady with the dogs. I was so glad to meet her and get to know her dogs’ names and pet them etc etc. I will be much less afraid going past her house now.

And I have bought a ticket for Norway, so I don’t know if I’ll be blogging from there or not. I’d have to lug my laptop through multiple airports along with my flute and my camera. Decisions, decisions.

      Singing is NOT potato chips OR football.

      And how about that music?
