Hello there! It’s good to see you this morning. The coffee just finished brewing; won’t you sit for a spell?
Last week I lamented about the rain hindering my running schedule. This week proved sunny, hot, and humid. And, of course, I chose to run in the hottest part of the day. But, I still did it. I even found two new routes, one of which happens to be a two-mile circuit! Huzzah!
As an added bonus, two of my cousins have asked to start jogging with me. After years of running alone, it’ll be interesting to see how partners affect things.
Right now the forecast says 100% chance of rain on Monday, and I have a virtual 5K to run. Hopefully I’ll be able to find a safe time to do it.
Our battle with the fleas continues apace. We’ve done two floor treatments and so far so good. Unfortunately Smokey picked up a few and now has to go through a deworming. My poor baby 🙁
But, back to the positives. I had a student contact me via the school:
“I know it’s summer, but I’m turning 18 in July. Can you help me register to vote?”
My heart is soaring!
Today I’m headed out to the store for some running gear and grocery items, then coming back home and cleaning the kitchen and doing some paint work on a costume. If I have time, I’ll try to get caught up with some reading before I have to return the book on Monday.
Speaking of costumes, SuperCon continues to take more of my money as they just announced Chris Bachalo will be there, which gave me an excuse to buy my own copy of Neil Gaiman’s “Death” miniseries. (In case you don’t know, Bachalo is the artist for the graphic novels) Thankfully, autographs for him are only $2.
Oh, I almost forgot that this evening there’ll be a burger to cook, photograph, and write about.
What have you been up to?
