So, like most big companies, we have a water cooler and big bottles of water delivered. Many of the others in the office will empty the bottle but leave it on the cooler. It’s annoying, but I can deal.
I actually get a giggle most of the time, because dealing with the water bottles makes me think of RK (Riverkid from Apoc). When I worked and lived in North Carolina, he is the one who delivered the water to where I worked. I know that he doesn’t do it any more, or he didn’t the last time I actually talked to him, but it’s still an interesting association. It’s only been in the last couple of months that he has really come to mind.
It’s possible that Asheville is on my mind because my sister lives in North Carolina and is wanting me to move near her. I know that I miss living in the mountains, whether it’s Vermont or the Smoky mountains in North Carolina. I miss being able to hike up the mountains and be out in nature. Here in OK, it’s too hot most of the time.
One of the things I like doing here in OK is digging crystals at the salt plains. The problem with that, is it’s a huge flat area and any heat outside is only magnified. https://www.fws.gov/refuge/salt_plains/visit/dig.html. I’m thinking I’ll suggest we go again closer to the end of September. It’s surprisingly relaxing to be digging in the mud, but we really need to be taking an extra set of clothes next time. I was crusted with selenite when I came home last time.
It might be time to start looking at geocaching or something like that to find more things to do. When the temperature is over 90F every day, it’s hard to want to be outside. I guess, since it’s getting ready to cool off, it may be time to look for other things to do.
Laterness and g’nite.
