My husband and kids spent the better part of a recent week in Utah, riding ATV’s on a trail.
You can catch a couple of them near the top of this picture. From what they told me, they were caked in dirt and sweat for a day or two at a time--not to mention periodically having to scrape bugs off their goggles and teeth. But they had a wonderful time, and would go again in a heartbeat.
I, too, enjoyed my week (at home on call for Jury Duty), working on my book, rewatching episodes of “Seinfeld,” and taking an average of two hour-long walks per day. For walking in our hills--in any weather, including 100 degree heat--is MY idea of getting down and dirty. Especially with a bathroom shower so close at hand.
What does it for you? Sports like tennis or soccer? More subdued yet messy activities like gardening or cooking or ceramics? What gets you “happy dirty?” Leave us an answer in the comments...but please, keep it clean. ;)
