Instant Karma moment of awesome

This weekend, T. and I were hiking down at Taughannock Falls State Park, as we are wont to do. We’d frozen half a water bottle full of water, as we are also wont to do, and then poured in water to fill, but this time, the half-liter of water really wasn’t enough for the day, and I was carrying around a half-liter of ice and wishing it to melt faster.

We’re in the habit of picking up a few piece of litter every time we go out walking, so I wasn’t thinking about it when I bent down to pick up the bottle of Poland Springs floating in the creek.

The entirely sealed, full, new bottle of Poland Springs Water.

Sometimes life is just fun.

Hottest Days of summer pic for the nastiest days of winter

Sam’s Point Nature Preserve, near Ellentown NY; that’s me & our friends abjuk & E.Mc in the photo, taken by T. (the Sam of the Point was an ancestor of Abjuk’s)

This was one of the hottest days I can remember this past summer; we (Abjuk, E.Mc, T., and I) did a craft fest in Rhinbeck and then hiked this – the ice caves were absolutely wonderful after the heat.

Pics from the Fall in hopes of the spring

Photo by my husband, T., taken several months ago in a hike at Finger Lakes National Forest.

The pond was sproinging with these little things; we’d walk a foot and another would hop into the lake with a noise like a rubber-band banjo. T. managed to catch a picture of one.

Nice park. We will go there again when the road clears.
