So, we went up to the mountains last weekend. I love the mountains, but I've gone on and on about that loads of times before.
We actually started out at my grandparents' up in Winston Salem, and got to be at their 50th anniversary party. Yay, party. Thankfully it was small and there was a garden to escape to. Also most of those in attendance were relatives. Sunday, however, we got to head up to the mountains.
No hiking this trip, but the weather was great, crisp and cool. I did a LOT of drawing and some writing, but all of it was longhand in my Mountain Notebook.
The most fun part, however, was actually shooting stuff with the BB Gun. I've decided I need to learn how to shoot if I'm going to live alone in the mountains when I grow up and be a crazy hermit, but it's one of those things I've done a couple of times and sucked at. In the mountains, however, I utilized new concepts such as "aiming" and I think I'm shaping up to be a decent shot. Knocking over cans was fun. Eventually, I want to use the actual shotgun, but I think we're going to have to leave the yard to do that.
