There are some quilting components to the blog today, but you'll have to wait for them. I need to show you that I do other things than declutter my house and quilt!
When I decided to do a geocache for fun in August, I got hooked on this challenge. Yes -- challenges seem to be my thing, and it was all for a virtual badge! In this case, you have to collect so many points each month that is the equivalent of the height of the highest mountain on one of the seven continents. Yep - I was hooked. Month three just ended, and so far - I have got all the virtual badges. But just!
Yesterday was the LAST day to qualify for Mount Elbrus, which is in Russia. In the morning, I had about 2,000 points, and I needed 5,642. Yikes -- I need a serious intervention! There are some easy caches that I could have done, but NO -- I wanted to do it the old-fashioned way. And this is what happened. I see there are still a couple of hours left this morning, so technically, I could have been caching all night, but I was done by mid-afternoon.
I headed out in the car - it was Sunday and quiet. I was tired of being stealthy in the city, so I headed to a country location. The country is not far away from here, as I'm technically in the country with a four KM drive. That won't last for many more years, and then the cities will be connected. Sigh.....
The first one should have been easy. Despite being Sunday, a churchyard wasn't that full, and the cache was at the far end of the cemetery, so I went for it. I circled that big tree MANY times but could not find the TINY little cache. I was about to give up, but I read through the previous finds - it's so much easier than in the old days! OH MY GOODNESS -- there it is. This tiny little camouflaged capsule.

Well, I'm off to spin class this morning. It's weird because the class is more open as the restrictions have been lifted, but we still get to reserve a bike which I like.
One thing I've noticed - if I get my eight hours of sleep, I don't need a nap! If I get less than eight hours, I need a nap!
Have a super day!!!!
