The past month I’ve been busy with relatively time consuming projects. I’m either working 12 hour days or climbing so much in one push that I need a full week to recover.
It’s been a month since I last went out climbing or doing anything without being tied into a schedule.
This past weekend I finally got a break from schedules and projects. Katja and I spent two beautiful days in the Turku area bouldering in Maskutalo and climbing and camping in Kustavi.
Driving to Kustavi is like driving home.
Katja is smiling. I am smiling too. I asked Katja what she is smiling for.
We both started laughing. We are smiling because we are doing what we love to do: exploring new places with friends, challenging ourselves, having chocolate and cookies for lunch, petting dogs, listening to the same song from the YOUNGHEARTED in repeat, having dinner under the stars (more cookies), sleeping in a car, and being outside in the crisp fall weather.
Once again we had the whole Kustavi to ourselves: Uhrikallio, Hopia, and Riskelä.
Minor set back was me coming down with a cold Saturday night. Sorry Katja for waking you up every hour and using all our toilet paper for blowing my nose. Another rest week for Emu.
The forest is full of lingonberries and beautiful fall colors. Go play outside!
And find something that makes you smile like so… 🙂 🙂 🙂
