This is definitely a week where I am ready for the weekend. Traffic has been bad for most of the week and I have been teaching a course that is in the beginning stages of development and launch. This all leads to a draining week.
So, tonight I will give a little recap of recent posts.
I will first mention my post from yesterday. Taking the Long Way Home was about how I used a much longer route to cut more than an hour off of a tangled commute nightmare.
The picture above is from the last leg of the trip home. Tonight the commute was better, but on a normal week it would have been a bad end to the week.
Of course, the big news of the week was the eclipse on Monday. I was able to get a few pictures of the eclipse, but was a bit disappointed in the results. Click on my post The Day of the Eclipse to learn more about my day on Monday. It is about more than just the short time of the eclipse, but questions about whether I would even see it and also a beautiful sunset picture I took at the end of the day.
The sunset picture that I took on Monday gave me the inspiration for my post on Wednesday about Valley Sunsets. Click on the link to see more beautiful sunsets.
Last Saturday I wrote a post titled Pictures from a Walk. The picture above is one of several pictures from the walk. One of the pictures is my favorite recent picture, so make sure you check out the post. See if you can tell which picture is my favorite.
I also wrote a post about my Virtual Hike to Tonopah. My virtual hike challenge has kept me motivated as I walk each day. I am already making good progress toward my next destination with another seven miles of walking today.
Unfortunately it is going to be a hot weekend with temps of 104 on Saturday and 105 on Sunday. Will I get up in time to do some yard work before it gets hot?
