5.0 miles. Hmmmm!
Obviously I could not cut through the soccer and softball complex but I also did not go through the Church campground and come out behind where I parked....so that should be about a wash.
It sounds stupid, but I feel a lot more tired.
Current alternatives to running are to bike and to fish. Maybe bike on Tuesday and fish on Thursday. This story is still developing.
Cider:My wonderful, younger sister Therese organized an apple picking and cider pressing party for tomorrow. I dropped off 10 clean grain bags and a tarp. Cider apples do not need to be treated gently. One can just shake them down from the tree. The trees are at my mom and dad's cottage.
I walked the orchard and yellow jackets are going to be a pain.
I don't know if I will get out to help.
I started a jug of hard-cider yeast culture just in case my wonderful sister Therese offers me some. I took a gallon of store-bought cider (from Quality Dairy, no preservatives!) and added a package of Red Star Cotes des Blancs wine yeast I found while grubbing around in the freezer. Yeast can double every 2 hours so a 20 hour head start can result in 1000X more viable yeast cells to out-compete the wild.
I also found some small pistol primers in the deep freeze. Gotta love freezers.
