Long time gone: 10 for 2010 update


Hey folks, how's life? It's been a while since I posted. I've been busy and just a little uninspired about blogging. It was never my intention to take a sabbatical...it just kinda happened. I haven't even been on to read blogs...but I'm still here and still queer(hehe). Hope you guys are doing well. I'm gonna try to look over some past blogs and check to see what you guys have been up to.

At the beginning of the year I did a post called "10 for 2010". It was about 10 goals I set for myself this year. You can read about my last update here.  Since then I've done a lot more volunteer work(I think I've logged at least 40 hours total so far this year). And...I finally visited Tallulah Gorge!


This place is truly stunning. It less than an hour from house. Don't know why I have never visited until now but I will be back...soon! It was a real workout to get from the top to the bottom of the gorge. And when I say real workout...I mean it! They have a set of step steps built onto the side of the gorge....1066 steps to be exact! No, I didn't count them. It was posted on a sign at the top :) 

Let me tell you...walking down 1066 is hard work but walking back up those 1066 steps is much, much harder. Maybe next time I will see if there is another way to get to the bottom without walking down those stairs or jumping. I found out they do kayaking trips there a couple of times a year. That might be fun. I have a Kayaking trip planned for next month at another river in NE Georgia. I'm looking forward to that. Hey, I think that counts as a new adventure which is another of my 10 for 2010 goals. I've only been Kayaking once and it was on a calm lake. You can read about that trip here. This place we are going is a four hour trip down a river complete with some mild rapids and small waterfalls.

                                            
I went to see Toy Story 3 yesterday! Y'all, it was fantastic! I laughed, I cried and I loved every minute of it.
If you liked the first two, you will love this one. If you haven't seen any of them...go rent the first two this weekend and then go see this one. They are so wonderful!

Since I haven't posted in so long, I will leave you with this...
