We decided to stay off the main pathway because it's just so much better when you're dirty! The main objective was to find the castle on top, have a picnic someplace awesome and then come back down in enough time for us to grab dinner later on. We spent some time on the top of the castle because the view was amazing; you could see most of CT from there!
The day just got better from there. After we decided we were going to settle down somewhere and eat the lunch I brought, we found this out of the way trail where it lead RIGHT to the cliff face! There was a natrual rock formation jutting out of the side and we HAD to take the opourtunity. It ws the most amazing view of the mountain ever! All you could see for miles was the lush green of the trees, the sky, and of course, more hawks (they live on the face of the mountain). We set up shop and, obviously, took in the view for a good solid hour, resting and sunbathing and enjoying ourselves.
It was definitely one of the best spent days I've had this summer. Eventually we'll hike it again in the fall so we can see all of those amazing trees in the beautiful colors of fall! Maybe I'll bring some knitting then, too, so when we're chillin on the precipice I can have something to do.

I'm supposed to be knitting my friend's daughter a Gryffindor scarf...
I'm supposed to be finishing up blocking my OTHER friend's Link hat...
and yet I chose tonight to become interested in making chainmaille jewelry.
Attention Ravelers!: Make sure you guys vote for your sock yarns for sock summit! I just placed my votes five minutes ago.

Good for the paycheck, bad for the brain/social life. My younger brother's graduation party is at my house today, and I can't even be there for the whole thing, I need to only be there for MOST Of it. I'm going to be excited at the money I'm gonna get this time around since I've been working non-stop all week and most of this coming week too, but being with my family would be nice every once in a while you know?
Next week is going to be hectic, I have two doctor's appointments (two different doctors) and ANOTHER party to go to, which of course I'm only going to be able to show up for the latter half of that as well, excellent.
This morning sucks thus far.

I've been so sick recently it's been making me frustrated, because I can't go out and be with the people that matter most to me, specifically Danny, because I'm just too damned tired all the time! On top of being sick, I have this stress that I've been dealing with, and it's not what I've dealt with before so I'm not quite sure how to approach it...
Danny interviewed for a pretty, shall we say "prestigious" job position about a week ago, and we're waiting to hear back from them, however they haven't gotten back to us, and we've been doing nothing but taking our respective stress out on one another, causing us to ultimately end tonight in a pseudo fight, and him driving me back home telling me to get some rest.
ON TOP of all of that, he has a paper route that he's picking up this week for a friend, which is paying well, but he has to sleep during the day because the paper route runs from 12 at night to about 5 in the morning depending on how fast he gets it done, which just makes for more stress for the two of us. I'm in the process of trying to change gyms because I want to get back into swimming again (I just feel so much better when I've been in the water, and this new place has a pool), I have about four weeks until I have to go back to class, all in all I'm in pretty miserable shape right now and I just wanted to vent about it.
Being sick sucks.

Summer has been amazing thus far, save for the insane amounts of rain we've been having, but I'm sort of yearning for some kind of summer adventure, I'd like to go kayaking or maybe climb Sleeping Giant soon. It's been rough though because Danny has been working ridiculous hours, and I've been left feeling a little lonely and neglected because of it. I mean he sleeps when we CAN hang out and when we can't I'm left feeling lonely and neglected kind of. I'm not unsympathetic to what he's doing, it just would be nice every now and then to feel a little more...appreciated (doesn't seem like the right word, but we'll go with that) for all of the crap I put up with. I love that boy so much...
Also,I have been knitting! Which is good, and I feel bad about it because I never take any pictures of my finished projects, which sucks. I'm making an attempt to teach more people and might try to start a stitch and bitch at school this year, or a knitting club, or some such thing, I hate the lack of knitting friends I have.
Additionally, anyone who IS on ravelry and looks at this feel FREE to message me and ask for my screen name or leave comments here because the lack of knitting fellowship that I have is making me upset.
