I have, of course, read dozens of quotes and selections from Walden because one can't avoid them, and I even started the thing a few times, but I can't quite get past his self-importance and his neckbeard. Still, I think I ought to read the whole thing someday.

Scochrane26 I read it this summer. You‘re prob better off just reading the important quotes. The rest is about ponds. 4w
OriginalCyn620 Haven‘t read this either! 4w
Crazeedi A note is on it's way to you!😊💞 4w
ImperfectCJ @Scochrane26 I read up to the detailed bit about how awesome he is because he has last season's suit design made for himself. Ponds might actually be more interesting... 4w
ImperfectCJ @Crazeedi Hooray! I need to get on top of my replies! 4w

On the way home from holiday hiking I stopped at a winery! Altogether this week I ended up with about 48K steps and around 304.5K steps this round. OTOH I seem to be in a little reading slump and only finished six books. I have a plan for turning that around though. As for screens before bedtime, I think a more realistic goal would have been having a more consistent sleep schedule, which I‘ve been trying to do. #bfrc4 #wrapup

Susanita Now I‘m going to activate a go-to-sleep podcast so I don‘t have to hear THAT channel coming from the other room. 1mo
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 Fantastic step count. 1mo

Free hiking tomorrow at US national park service facilities!

Busy week with a much needed pause in the action for me. Yesterday I helped a friend at a craft fair and got some shopping done. More steps than expected but also standing on concrete floor hard on my knees. Today football palooza for myspouse and his buds means reading time for me.

Stats for #bfrc4 #checkin
-53K steps
-no books finished
-good sleep most nights

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 And enjoy walking in a national park this weekend. 👍🏻👍🏻 1mo

We're reading this for Nov book club as we have a Thanksgiving meal planned (we have two Americans in our grouo) and thought this would be a good but challenging read!

Picture is my new “inspirational” Fitbit cover photo. It was a fun, stressful, and busy week. One work thing is done, with another thing starting tomorrow, and then we‘re done with large scale events for a while. Yesterday I got a haircut and facial, then I watched the parade on TV.

Good week for walking but not as good for sleeping, reading, or posting. My Fitbit was uncharged for several hours on Monday, so I‘m estimating 52-55K steps. Finished one book. Been a little distracted. #BFCR4 #checkin

“...I minded not how the hours went. The day advanced as if to light some work of mine; it was morning, and lo, now it is evening, and nothing memorable is accomplished...This was sheer idleness to my fellow-townsmen, no doubt; but if the birds and flowers had tried me by their standard, I should not have been found wanting. A man must find his occasions in himself, it is true. The natural day is very calm, and will hardly reprove his indolence.”

Last week I walked ~49K steps and finished two books. More later about screen use and sleep. 😴

This week I have activities every night and a big “thing” at work, but somehow 🤔 I‘ve managed to accumulate all these library books plus a few others that aren‘t shown for various reasons. The Fodor‘s guidebook is research for #readingretreat2020 but still...

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌 Sounds like a great week to me! And that's a pretty awesome library book haul. 2mo

Pretty good work week...aside from screen use Wednesday night😃...and not so good on the weekend. OTOH I did some socializing, errands, and reorganizing. Newly arranged nightstand in the photo. Yes, that‘s a mermaid themed nail file in my Nationals coozie repurposed as a holder thingy.

Totals: ~45K steps and two books completed.
