it's a good thing i more or less have to quit early, because i was also hoping to find some time to spend some mornings in the garden. it's in the shade till noon, and it's the best time to get garden work done without roasting in the midday sun. working steady day shifts hasn't allowed me as many productive hours out there as i'd hoped for, this will give me a chance to spend quality time out back. waking up out in a tent beside the garden [sans alarm] will be nice for a few weeks too.
i'll have a chance to travel around the peninsula and visit varous friends i would not have otherwise found the summer-time to hang out with. i'll get to hang out with the person i've been attempting to share my life with for a good long while, but never get to spend time with due to working opposite shifts. we'll go on a few dates mayhaps, take a bikeride to the lake, cache some geos. i'll have time to take a few mid-afternoon naps, and read a good book or two under the tree.
for now i should probably look into getting some sleep. i have 161 working hours left before departure. the first set of which come early tomorrow morning, and i must prepare for the day! onward..
