Back From Field Trip

A somewhat cold day in Ottawa, with sunshine and relatively clear weather. (Occasional flurries of snow, even when coming home.) Still, not as bad as it's been weather-wise this week here in the nation's capital.

Just returned home from my field trip for the Geology class.

It's not fun getting up at 4:30 am on a Saturday morning for stuff, but I have to say that I've really enjoyed myself during the Geology class field trips. The "hands on"/lab experience really does help make the academic lessons sink in somewhat better.

That said, I'm somewhat cold, somewhat tired, somewhat hungry, and my eyes and throat are bothering me a bit from the fumes at the moment. I think a nice hot shower again, and then some lunch. After that, we'll see.

But, oh... Chemistry of rocks. Lots of fun. :)

4:30AM and all is well.
I get at 4:30am on a daily basis for some odd reason.

Yeah, but the problem is that I don't want to get up so early on a Saturday morning. I need my rest, and I'm not getting any younger! :)

you'll get plenty of sleep when you are dead. ;) Life is for the living and might as well enjoy it.

Again, too true. :)

Still, I'm enjoying the course work so it's not all that bad.

    It's like that quote from The Neverending Story: "It has to hurt if it's to heal!" I say that to myself when things are rough.

    The pandemic absolutely hit healthcare really hard, and still is since…

    Yep, the foot ulcer is definitely scary to deal with, and is beyond uncomfortable. The chiropodist told me at my last appointment a week or so ago that the pain always gets worse as the healing…

    I'm sorry that your foot is causing you so many issues. A foot ulcer sounds scary to deal with as well as uncomfortable.

    Our health care system is rough and I think it's going to get worse before…

    I've definitely been napping more this long weekend. The season is starting to turn and I think it's going to be beautiful out next week. Still my body wants naps so that's what I'm doing.

    I don't…
