Thursday mornings are “lazy” mornings at our house. It is the one morning when we don’t have anything going on until 11:20 when Bugs gets on the bus. I take the opportunity to sleep until 6:30 and with my new schedule not getting cleaned up until after exercising in the afternoon. So, imagine my surprise when Felice rings my doorbell to drop-off the Solixir I won at her blog. Punky and I were deep into making brownies and I’m dressed in baggy clothes in preparation for my afternoon gardening time. Felice and I chatted for a little while and while I would have loved to talk longer, she had a little one waiting for her and Punky was pulling at me because she wasn’t finished mixing the brownies. When we finished the brownie mixing and I popped them in the oven I immediately called ADP at work. He was a gem and listened to me and how horrible I thought looked and then it hit me – should I see Felice again I’ll probably not only look like this but I will be running a race and thus probably sweaty as well. I guess runners see each other at our worst (hot and sweaty) and our best (running and loving it). At least I put my contacts in this morning.
In addition to having a lazy morning, an afternoon in the gardens, I already changed my gym schedule. No one is going to blame me. When ADP arrived home I had planned on going to the gym, but I just couldn’t bring myself to go. The last two weeks have been cool with highs around 50 and when ADP pulled in the driveway it was 73F!! I couldn’t go exercise inside. It’s October 22 and in the 70s so I went for a relaxed 5 mile run. I loved it.
