another uneventful summer + Labor Day weekend report

Summer was again uneventful due to the economic recession. This was actually our first time in at least 15 years that we didn't go on any vacations during the summer. While I got a cool new job in July and went to my company's family picnic last month, that's pretty much all. I've posted a few pictures I took during the summer here.

On the other hand, the Labor Day long weekend totally rocked. The break began with a hike in Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park on Saturday afternoon. That was something we hadn't done in a while. There was lots of free time, during which we went to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for another stroll. Our last time here was at least five years ago, but the place hadn't changed much. I think we walked a total of around nine miles!

Having hike so much the day before, my family decided to spend Sunday relaxing at home. That said, I finished watching Star Trek: The Animated Series on DVD. The animated series is almost 40 years old but still quite enjoyable.

Other than that, I spent most of Monday working on an assignment for an online programming class. The good news is that I managed to get it done - even though it took a couple of hours. On the whole, the break was an extremely productive one.

Currently watching: Star Trek: The Animated Series
