Day of rest
Yesterday, we had Plan A, B, and C for today:
Plan A: Go to Valles Caldera and visit Longmire’s Cabin. 7 hours round trip plus whatever time we spent there.
Plan B: Go to Santa Fe and see the sights. 3 hours round trip plus whatever time we spent there.
Plan C: None of the above. Stay home and do laundry. Relax. Listen to the whispering pines.
We went with Plan C. After sleeping in we had breakfast and then went and
did laundry. We walked around the park for a bit. Drove to the ranch up the road and admired the scenery. Then we folded the laundry and had lunch. Afterwards I took a nap. Then I checked the tire pressures in the truck, but no before running over my favorite tire pressure gauge. HULK SMASH!
Cristy started making some Chile Verde and has asked me to watch it while she takes a nap. Which is what I’m doing now. God commanded that we take a day of rest for a reason and I’m so glad I followed His command today. We really needed the downtime. I also used the time to prepare for our drive up into Kansas tomorrow. The forecast calls for thunderstorms so this ought to be interesting. We’ll spend two days getting across Kansas to our ultimate destination, Hardin, Missouri.
