On Vacations and Getting Outside

So today’s post is a bit of a stretch. Today is one of those days where I’m having a hard time with a topic to talk about. I figured that I needed to do something today though since I didn’t do anything over the weekend.

So if you’ve read my previous blogs you would know that over the last few days I was out of town on vacation. I’ve lived a state away from one of my online friends for several years and finally got around to driving up for a visit so I thought I’d talk a little bit about that.

Most of the day Friday was spent out and about checking out stores and seeing what there was to do. Checked out a used bookstore and a store called “Vintage Stock” that has a lot of stuff such as used video games, comics, movies and toys. Some original in package, but mostly used. I had a few places I had looked up and a few places that I was told to check out.  I met up with my friends Belghast and Lethbrige for lunch and had a good meal with some conversation. Friday night we met up at our friend Rae’s house for some pizza and munchkin. While I had a blast playing munchkin I lost both games. I was really close to winning the first game but everyone conspired against me and I ended up dying and losing all my items.

Saturday was mostly spent outside checking out a Renn Faire that was having a Pirate themed weekend. Had a good time walking around checking out some vendors and live acts. There was a lot of stuff to buy, but mostly out of my budget. I did end up buying a glass spider from one of the vendors, which you can buy online. They had several outfit and weapon vendors, but the stores were pretty small and very crowded so I didn’t go in to take a look.

So the other thing I wanted to mention was that I’m not generally an outside person. I tend to stay inside most of the time because I’m not a huge fan of hot weather. I do think that it is import to get out every now and then and get some fresh air. I personally have a lot of aches from not being an active person, and that is something I need to work on. If you live somewhere where you can get out and do stuff I would highly recommend it, even if it is just going out to a park and getting some air.

Personally I hope to get out a bit more on weekends just so I can get some air and maybe get some sun and exercise.
