What happened to the box of stuff? I had other things going on in the day, but I did gravitate back to the box from time to time. However, I had done my gardening (more on that tomorrow), and it was getting late, and I was NOT done with the box of crap for the day. I DID NOT go to bed. Instead I got out the box, and I emptied it. YES, I DID, and I'm pretty proud of that fact.
A few more things went into the box to be reviewed in more detail later. This is a good thing because it allows me to quickly go through the box. Again, I'm not trying to put much in that box because - how much do I want to go through in further detail? It'll all work out.
And the next box is prepped.

|You can actually see part of the surface|
The danger for me is to NOT add anything to that blank spot. I want the table top completely clear, and only then am I allowed to put more stuff on it. But wouldn't it be great to have this surface clear before I leave next week? That's my goal, and I'm not sure I can do it, but I'm going to give it an honest try.
As I mentioned, I MUSTN'T fritter this free time away. I need to make good use of it.
So I decided to go hiking yesterday. I walk every day, but that's not really hiking. I mean -- honest to goodness hiking in the backwoods. I dug out my hiking poles, and found this backpack in the closet where my other small backpack was stored. Hmm -- I've no idea where this came from, but I suspect that we got it at some fundraiser or other function, and when I was cleaning ut the closet of suitcases and packs last year or whenever that was, this got put in the hall closet with the other walking/hiking packs.

I packed a small bag of snacks, items for nature calls, AfterBite, sunscreen, and I was off. I also wore my trusty running shoes, not hiking boots. I would hit The Bruce Trail again and start from a very secluded spot.
I wasn't far into the hike when I realized I had left a very important thing at home. See all this stagnant water?

And all that brush? What do you get with that combination?
