dreaming | of time on the PCT.

celebrating | the Warriors’ championship, #LoveWins, the US women winning the World Cup, and my cousin’s wedding (with many drinks and much dancing).

setting up | my new MacBook, which involves getting rid of one printer because drivers for Mac aren’t available and trying to find a decent one for cheap on Craigslist, and finally getting access to all the photos and files that have been sitting in my external hard drive that doesn’t work with PCs after more than a year.

reading | a biography of Walt Disney. still.

avoiding | spoilers for Go Set a Watchman. Not since Harry Potter have I so desperately avoided reviews and spoilers. By the time you read this, I will probably be at the bookstore picking up my reserved copy.

counting | steps, thanks to my new Fitbit. Getting to 10,000 a day is harder than it sounds when you only leave the house to walk the dog.

yoga-ing | at Green Flash with Hoppy Yoga.

writing | more than I have in recent months, at least.

trying | to get to bed earlier (spoiler alert: it’s not going well).

bookmarking/saving/pinning/tweeting | this quarterly exercise for freelancers. this advice on email. these wonderful lessons. this reese’s s’mores dip. this California bear hug print. these SD camping spots. this ice cream. this Q&A for freelance writers. this background noise generator. this streamlining method. this candle that sounds heavenly.


  • Have you done very much hiking on the PCT? I would like to try a little day hike there one day. Sounds like July is going pretty well 🙂 Getting ready for my friend to get in town tomorrow!! I love getting to show off all my favorite SD spots.

    • Just a little; we usually camp at Burnt Rancheria campground and the PCT literally passes right next to it, so we’ll hike along that for a couple miles and then branch off to another trail that loops back to the campground. I really want to check out some different sections of it!

      Have fun showing off SD to your friends!

  • I’m with you on trying to get to bed earlier. Every time I try to get my butt to bed earlier I find something that just has to be done.

    • Right?? My husband is usually in bed by 9 – 9:30 and I just can’t figure out how he does it.
