today was a day of treats. i got a package in the mail i’d been waiting for – i splurged on a topo map of the region and a fancy compass. i’ve had this delightful ‘new toys’ sort of happy all day. :)
i may or may not have been spinning around in my desk chair, watching the compass needle not spin.
the absolute best was that, as is apparently unavoidable with maps, i immediately located home on it, and then visually explored out for places i didn’t know yet – that hidden in the forests peak that’s surprisingly a bit higher up than most other places, the official name of that valley over there, and so on.
then my father came home, i told him i got a map, and within 5 minutes, we were both hunched over it, looking at names and places, pointing and measuring.
On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
