Playdays

Oregon Badlands Trail

Sunday, June 26, 2022

All week I’ve complained of having to be at work by 7:30 a.m. Now I find that in a few weeks, my schedule has me starting to work at 3:30 a.m. Nobody asked if I’d be okay going to work at ungodly hours; but the store is a 24-hour operation. We all share and reap the benefits. I will do my part.

I am finding that shopping in the store satisfies most of my household needs. Easily, too, because I can shop right after working. I already have other nearby sources for non-groceries, like clothing, hardware, and ranching-oriented products.

Now, knowing my schedule ahead several weeks, I can start making plans to do fun stuff. High on my agenda are horseback riding, hopefully tomorrow. And taking the dogs out to run, hopefully today.

For the dogs, this time running as a pack will be for Mitzvah and Chase their first time loose and free. It will test their willingness to follow, their attentiveness to recalls. Normally, those concerns already would have been addressed. I’ve been too busy and preoccupied; for weeks haven’t felt like playing.

Well, that’s over. One who occasionally must arrive at work in very wee morning hours needs also to have a life. This is the right time for me and mine to go have fun.

Dear Friends: My camera will capture today’s adventure. Diana
