Stolen Water Bottle

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Missing, and no longer available to order online: 1 water bottle

Someone took mine while I was running this morning. Luckily, they left Heather's (pictured here), which looks almost exactly the same.

Rather than focus on what I lost, here is what I found today:

Accomplishment. Even though I did a 5k race last Sunday... I do them almost every weekend. This time it included finishing Week 3, Day 1 of our 10k training. Yay us!

Child's Play... Found at the end of our run, when we went to stretch at the picnic tables. Somewhere there is a little girl or boy who enjoyed playing with the flowers at the park, and left them on the table... I loved the adorable evidence, and the thought.

The Fattest Squirrel EVERRRRR!! There were a lot of children's birthday parties on these tables over the summer, and I think the ground squirrels are definitely ready for winter now!! EHheheheheheee. He had a squirrel wife, too, who was pretty fearless.

And guess what? I found a solution to my internal argument about wanting to do a Turkey Trot 5k on Thursday, but not wanting to spend the money... There's a marathon 2 hour Zumba dance class closer to home for only $10.00. Perfect. I can't wait. :)

hope Zumba was great!

Sorry about the water bottle.

Etch your name in the next one! Someone probably thought it was an orphan and needed a home!

    I have to say the squirrel is so cute. Love the flowers! My son just left his water bottle here the other day. I think I might have just gained one. Sorry you lost yours.

    I was going to say something about the hefty squirrel, but then I felt guilty about judging his obesity... emoticon

    That fat squirrel looks so cute and cuddly... while at the same time I know it's probably filthy and could potentially have the plague.

I hope the jerk that took your water bottle was super thirsty and REALLY needed it.

    OMG!! THAT'S A SQUIRREL? I thought it was a freakin' beaver! It's HUGE!
Adore the photo of the flowers. It's gorgeous! It needs framing and to be hung upon your wall.
Love the idea of a Zumba marathon! Good luck with all.

    There is a small, special place in hell for water bottle thieves. It's hot there.

    I didn't have the cash to participate in the Turkey Trot this year either, so I am hiking. It's free.

Sorry about the water bottle.

emoticon Great Deal about the Race Times and the Zumba Marathon. And the Squirrels are AWESOME!! Maybe we need to start a Squirrel Spark Page?! Teach them to only eat the "Healthy Scraps"?!!
emoticon Wonder if we can find someone who speaks Squirrel?

    That is too cool. :D I still love it when my youngest daughter gives me "flowers" or blows on the dandelion puffs. Good luck and have fun in class.
