Energetic dog!

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Cooper wanted to RUN this morning. We ran intervals for 5.8 miles. Plus we took two other fairly brisk walks as well. Happy dog! He likes the cooler temperature today. It was all of 35 degrees today... after a high on Thursday of 85 degrees. That is a 50 degree difference. Weird weather. My dad says it is just Spring.

Had a lovely lunch with my parents today, though mom did most of the cooking. She didn't want to wait for me to get there, so she did all the prep work before dad picked me up. Oh well, at least I washed all the dishes after lunch. We had pork chops, asparagus, sweet corn, roasted potatoes and garlic, and fresh pineapple. After lunch my dad ran me by a couple of stores before dropping me and Cooper off at home. I got luscious veggies, and some more yogurt among other things. I have all the ingredients for ratatouille once again, so guess what will be on the menu this week?

My brother wants to go paddling tomorrow. It is supposed to be a little warmer, which would be good. He wants to do a short paddle on a small lake up in the hills. I might be able to convince him to do two laps around. We will have to see. He hasn't been feeling well (he has high blood pressure), so I might not push it. He says paddling helps though, because it calms down his stress level, so maybe I should push for two laps.

    I was sick for 2 days and had to skip the pup walk. Yesterday, we walked for over 2 hours. The fluffies were happy, but the chihuahua had to be carried for almost 2 miles. (Little weasel)
