Rough start but great day!
Saturday, March 16, 2013
Had a really hard time getting motivated this am. I was up at 5 and it took an hour for me to get out of bed - and that was just because I needed the bathroom. Now I have a VERY small house and the "hall" between my bathroom and my bedroom is maybe 2.5 ft wide. I walked right into two dogs. Sitting side by side, tails wagging. I looked down - two leashes! I have no idea how they got them down but they did. I just can't disappoint my girls.
I seriously under-dressed but out to run we went. I was freezing but we ran for about 20 minutes. We did about 2 miles. I came home with two happy dogs and frozen fingers.
Hubby was up by this point and we decided to head to Lincoln Park Zoo. We got there and I had forgotten that the St. Paddy's 5K was today. Fortunately we were able to find parking. I haven't been to that zoo in years, it was terrific. We did the entire zoo, I got some great pictures.
There is also a Conservatory right there. Hubby just sat in the front but I had a WONDERFUL time. I love plants and green things. I was in heaven in the fern room. It was snowing (flurries) outside but there I was in the dead of summer with life in bloom. I know I should have taken pictures but I was just lost in the beauty of the place. I really need to go back. Here is a picture I got hubby to take before he took his breather on the bench:
Food wasn't great today. Big breakfast (which is normal for Saturday) but then pizza for lunch. Fortunately I'm not hungry at all. Maybe I'll just have some carrots later and call it a day.
