I can only hope that the rest of our trip is as relaxing as our time in Colorado. Well, I kinda take that back. Because I was bitten so much yesterday, I woke up in the middle of the night with phantom bug attacks. Between my itching, my allergies, and I guess altitude sickness, I couldn’t sleep. So I sneakily got up and hung out in the other room where I couldn’t bother the rest of the sleeping house. It was about 3am here so it was the perfect time to call my sister in Spain. Sloane and I talked until the sunrise, when she had to leave to meet a friend for lunch. We talked about everything and nothing. But we were also productive. We did a bunch of trip talk. I’m so excited to see her!
Finally the rest of the house awakened. Coffee was a must, so that happened. We ran a few errands in Meeker before heading to Rifle to see the movie that I’ve been anticipating for the past six months, Brave! We weren’t sure if we were going to get a chance to see it before we left, so I was stoked. Really good movie, it was a great story and seemed quite original. And the Pixar short beforehand was wonderful.
We headed back to Meeker and made dinner. Well, Seth made dinner and I helped a bit. He made a bunch of delicious dishes for dinner, but the greatest part/idea was the watermelon gazpacho. Perfect for the weather. I can’t wait to have some of that for lunch! It’s always better the second (or third) time around.
So, we had a nice relaxing day, despite my restless night. If I get enough sleep tonight I have the option to ride horses tomorrow morning.
