following the trail


Found my new hill training area. There aren’t many hills around where I live, but there is a service road next to the dam that’s about 250 yards long and a 55 foot elevation climb. So not super long, but great for at least working on hills. I tried running a trail toward the beginning, to descend, but it went way off course from the hill so just retraced the trail and stuck to the service road.

It was a race pace 3 miles(Since tomorrow is a rest day) and I was BEAT after the final hill. But after catching my breathe and getting a drink… I did the hill another time for fun. Plus I followed the trail and it DID come out farther down the river, but not great for running because of all the huge rocks.

Can’t wait to start incorporating this run at least once a week. It’s only about 3 miles away for me to drive and easy access. Plus no cars hardly(saw 1 fisherman) on the service road so I can easily push Summer in the stroller once it warms up more. ✌️🏃

The Squonk is a Fearsome Critter that only lives in the hemlock forests of Pennsylvania. The Squonk is always unhappy and is always be crying. The cause of its sadness is said to be in its appearance: sagging skin covered in moles and warts. Skilled trackers are able to find the creature by following the trail of tears that it leaves as it walks. When frightened, the Squonk is able to dissolve itself into a puddle of tears. 

Legends say that Squonk hunters are successful on “frosty moonlight nights” because the creature’s tears fall more slowly and it dislikes moving around. On those nights the Squonk can be found by the sobbing sounds it makes.


His words,
are delicate paper trails
through dense inner worlds,
fading footprints
that leave flowers blooming
in their wake,
thick with promise,
and air
for my lungs,
for my soul,
to follow

My baby boy is a whole year old today!

To start the day off, we went for a hike on our favorite trail, followed by a nice lunch outside. We stopped by a local pet store and picked up the most disgusting thing I could find, some dehydrated duck heads. Now we’re home and are going to have a playdate with Carson! More pictures to come of the rest of our day.

Meet Yogi (@yogithedoggo)! He’s a Bealge/Jack Russell mix that I adopted from ARNI about 9 months ago. He’s one of the greatest blessings in my life, and I love him so much! I’m so very glad that ARNI was able to save him right in the nick of time!

He’s a very rambunctious, but also quite the docile and lethargic dog as well (there is no in-between with him haha). He’s very fond of adventures like hiking and swimming in lakes (he’s not quite fond of the beach….he probably doesn’t like the saltwater). He loves following scent trails above all things. It’s quite hard to get him to play with other doggos in the dog park when he hasn’t finished uncovering all of the interesting smells yet! 

Things I've learned from Death Note so far:
  • A: Sunshine, rainbows and tons of anxiety.
  • Naomi Misra: No one fucks with Naomi.
  • Beyond: Cute but psycho. But cute. Also probably otaku.
  • Mello: Is somehow everyone's small son. Angst, violence and literature.
  • Matt: Tech geek/cigarette addict/nerd/badass. But at the same time very small and must be protected.
  • Near: Also very small. Usually followed by mechanical robots.
  • Nose quite boopable.
  • L: Very tol. Usually followed by a trail of orphans.

Prologue 1

Maybe I got lazy. Fell asleep at my post. Somehow everything I love is at risk. Again. Last time I saw Karnaca I was just eighteen, boarding a ship bound for Dunwall. It was dawn and I’d been up all night dancing, three sheets to the wind. I was puffed up with the old Duke’s favor and I thought I was the greatest swordsman the Isles had ever known. For over three decades, I’ve lived in the palace, watching over the people I love. I’ve had an Empress die in my arms, and raised another from birth. Who would have thought I’d come back home the most wanted man in the Isles, following the trail of a monstrous killer. What would that eighteen years old think of me now?
