This morning, we decided to go hiking at Harris Lake. We did the 5 mile loop around Peninsula Trail. The trail usually takes about 2 hours, but between stopping to let the dog swim and stopping to eat lunch it took us about 3 hours.
Harris Lake is located at Shearon Harris, which is a nuclear power plant. See the cooling tower in the background of this picture? All throughout the park were warning signs of what to do if the plant blows up and you have to evacuate. Scary huh? But other than that the park and lake were beautiful!
Although it was REALLY hot (and we went at the hottest part of the day -- not smart) it was fun, good exercise, good quality time with Sugar, and best of all, FREE.
Now, brace yourself for this next picture. This was my kitchen at about 7:00 tonight, after not being cleaned after this morning's pancake breakfast, today's packed lunch, and tonight's pasta dinner. Not a single surface was left uncluttered. It was so atrocious I just had to take a picture and share. If you don't ever look at me in the same way again, I understand.
In my defense though, I spent what seemed like 2 hours just yesterday cleaning this kitchen! Don't worry, after another two hours of cleaning tonight, our kitchen is back in order once again.
Hope you all had a good weekend!
