Today was the birthday of my friend Luke. Last year I spent a good part of June digging with him in Israel, so I am thinking of what I was doing last June.
Last June I was taking daily walks at work to check out the construction on our new office. The building is still under construction and when I am able to go back to work in our office again I will be taking some more pictures.
I check the progress through a webcam, but not much happens outside the building.
I was also reading a book that featured a few of the pictures that I took during a trip to Turkey. The author had contacted me to see if he could use them as he was missing a few key pictures. See: A Book in the Mail
The dig was of course a lot of hard work and I made many trips to the dump with a wheelbarrow. The dig was not too good on my knees last year as I had a minor twist of one of my knees the first day. It took some time to fully recover after the dig. They are feeling good at the moment 🙂
I had not planned on digging this summer which made it a bit easier when I found out that the dig that I would have gone on was cancelled. However, I am thinking about next year. I may just have to go dig again. The terrain at the next dig site is not as rugged so shouldn’t be as hard on my knees.
I am thinking now of where to take a vacation after traveling returns to normal.
