your personal little protagonist.
man, i am really frakking bored.|
brian left today for yet ANOTHER trip, and though i'll admit that sometimes being home alone for a week is nice for things like cleaning/cooking/watching-whatever-i-want-on-tv, i'm utterly lonely today.
i decided to go for a walk/jog (okay, i only jogged for like 6 minutes) because i looooove jog/walking when it's cold outside, and because i had to drive to brian's office to get my iphone headphones, i decided to drive to the I&M Canal trail for my trip instead of going around the neighborhood. so, yeah, i guess since the last time i've been there it's become the unofficial strip of man-eating dogs whose owners are anti-leashes. man, as soon as i got there, this big dog started trying to chase me and his owner had NO COMMAND over him whatsoever. after i started walking, the dog ran up to me at least three times. i was sure he was going to rip a piece of my calf off. sheesh. THEN, later on i crossed paths with a scruffy nature-looking dude and his unleashed rottweiler. this owner had the sense to stop, move to the side of the trail and hold his dog by the collar until i passed, though, which was nice.
i was probably out there for about 40 minutes, and once you get about a mile into the trail past the silica sand gigantoid building, the scenery starts getting pretty. unfortunately, the cold was made less tolerable by the rather high winds, and my ears were numb (despite my bandana-turned ear muffs - i couldn't find my hat) when i got here, so i turned around.
i look like aunt jemima! only in teal :)
in other news, i got a hair cut!
this was taken in the morning and i know i kindof look like poo, but alas, there it is. it looks even worse now that i went on a walk, sooooo this is probably then best it will ever look! :)
i think i'll spend of the rest of the day finishing up some sewing projects that got abandoned after sschool began.... sigh. i want my husband to be home to hang out with me! :(
