SInce we’re posting photos these days, I thought I’d publish this image of a tent caterpillar nest, with all the tent caterpillars getting all frisky and exiting their womb/nest/hive/pavillion.
This tree had about eight such nests on it, and I think its foliage is basically doomed.
In other news, today marks day 8 of my regular cardio workout program, and I’ve gotten to the point where I have to boost my program to get the same exercise done as on day 1. When I started, it took me 20 minutes to get up to the desired heart rate, and I could only sustain that for about fifteen minutes. Now I can boost to the desired heart rate in about three minutes, and sustain that for 45-50 minutes.
This parallels my belief that I’m basically healthy under my overweight state, and if I continue this course of exercise through the coming year I should be in great shape in a not-terribly-long period of time. That’s the plan, anyway.
