Friday Night Trail Walk

Jimmy and I took Lola for a walk on a local trail on Friday night. The day had been pretty rainy, so the trail was almost empty and we felt like we had it all to ourselves.

I brought my camera along because practicing my photography on a local trail was on my spring fun to-do list!


I totally understand why we had the whole trail to ourselves, though. When we got to the furthest point we wanted to go, it started to sprinkle. Then it began to rain. Then it started pouring.

So Jimmy, Lola, and I were clomping through this muddy trail in the pouring rain on a Friday night. Poor Lola was trying to sniff everything as we went, I was trying to protect my camera, and Jimmy was trying to hustle us girls along. It was probably a pretty funny sight 🙂


By the time we got to my truck, we were soaked! A little rain never hurt anyone and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It made for a really fun night!

Spring Has Sprung

It seems like the weather is finally catching up with the season here in Pittsburgh. We have been having temperatures in the 60s and 70s!

It feels wonderful to get outside and not have to bundle up. Also, seeing daffodils poking through the ground and bright yellow forsythia blooming is such a mood booster. The nice weather also makes pet sitting a lot more enjoyable 😉

Did everyone have a nice weekend? Ours was fairly busy, filled with pet sitting, work, painting, celebrating, and worshiping. A lovely mix of activities.

I bought a coral paint sample for an accent wall in our office, but it was too orange-ish when I put it on the wall. So I painted primer over it and bought another sample. Fingers crossed this one is the color I’m looking for!

My family celebrated my mom’s birthday by going to her favorite Italian restaurant. Afterwards, some of the kids went go karting at Steel City Indoor Karting. I was definitely content to just watch and take pictures. The go karts go as fast as 50 miles per hour!

Our church is hosting its Spring Revival, so we have a guest speaker preaching from Sunday through Wednesday, which is always a delight!

I also finished reading Midwife: A Calling by Peggy Vincent and it was great! Some of her stories literally had me laughing out loud. I read one to Jimmy about a placenta and he definitely didn’t think it was funny. Sorry Jimmy! I guess we don’t have the same level of interest in childbirth 😉

How was your weekend?

What has the weather been like where you live?
