On Friday I got a notification from the library that my copy of Super Smash Bros Ultimate was ready to pick up. I have had this bad boy on hold for MONTHS and it was so good to finally play it. I only have a week to play it before I have to return it so I went to town on this game Friday night.
Kirby of course is the most ultimate character to play as. He’s got a hammer, he can fly and he can suck you into his face and spit you back out and steal your powers.
This game is ridiculously awesome.
On Saturday we drove 5 hours south into California to camp at the Redwoods State Park. It was really amazing and I posted a ton of pics of clear blue river water, giant ass trees and beautiful ocean views.
I didn’t share that it rained the night we got in and we had to put our tent up in a downpour. Also, when the rain finally tapered off we were stuck making a fire in this giant pit that looked like one of those trash cans homeless people light on fires in alleyways in movies to keep warm. It was impossible to sit and enjoy the fire during this trip, which is one of our favorite things to do, because the pit was so deep that hardly any heat escaped.
It was a bit of a damper on the trip.
Before we took off on our amazing hike Sunday morning we stopped at the coast to get some coffee. I found this adorable little beach house with a great view. I took a picture of their gate because I thought it was really unique and cute. Reminded me of a pirate ship or something.
Our hike on The Boy Scout trail was really incredible. Giant redwoods, beautiful sights and smells. What I didn’t share was the insane chap I got on my butt. It’s kind of funny now, but definitely not at the time. I was wearing the wrong leggings for a hike like this. Too thin, not enough support for movement. Essentially in the essence of being real: ow. ow. ow. my poor butt.
We drove home on Memorial day. I have to yell every time I see farm animals on the side of the freeway.
Lots of cows and sheep. A few llamas and even some chickens. I hate seeing the tags in their ears and knowing they won’t live for much longer – but at the very least this life in the green fields is better than most agricultural animals get. Still all knifes look the same at the end no matter what life you’ve had.
On a happier note, if you ever do a road trip with me just prepare for some yelling about animals out the window.
Being back at work after a holiday weekend is such a drag.
I brought a PB&J to work for lunch because I had the ingredients left over from camping. It was so hard to be back though and I had to cheer myself up at lunchtime and go get whole bowl.
It’s not a very pretty picture but it’s one of those little things that make me happy.
Also, like their motto says, ‘It’s like eating a hug’ and god damn if that’s not true.
It should be illegal to have meetings that are longer than 2 hours. Tuesday brought me a 4 hour meeting and WOW it was rough.
My attention span for that length of time is pretty shit so I really had to pay attention and take notes and make sure I was on the ball with this one.
It wore me out though and when I came home it was an early bed time.
We found out we won a big project at work, which was great. I particularly spent a lot of time on it and it felt good to know the win will help a few people in our Texas office retire on the project and bring in good income.
We went out for a beer after work to celebrate. We were in a bar, watching a different bar across the street that is known for getting a bit rowdy with their rooftop deck. Had a good time poking fun at the people that came stumbling out.
I had a lot of fun with this challenge and I don’t have anything planned for June so I’m going to continue this one through the next month! Hope that’s okay with you all. Keep participating if you can with the #picturethelittlethings hashtag. I’ll highlight any that show up on here!
