Finished Project

Monday, May 06, 2013

I read a signature block, and I don't even remember whose it was, but it said that any day you can run is a great day! I'd been feeling just a bit sorry for myself over the sore rear end muscles, but that saying helped put it in perspective. Today is a great day! Looking forward to the run with my coaching group this eve. (And to those of you who suffer with real health issues every day, I apologize for being so insensitive.)

I'm also delighted to report that hubby and I finally got the aquarium set up again, after a long time of just having an empty or covered one in the living room. I definitely think an empty aquarium does nothing for the ambiance or fung shwae (I know that isn't spelled right) of the room.

Photographing the aquarium is a bit tricky with the mirror catching the flash behind it, but this will give you an idea of our latest completed project:

So here's to renewed enthusiasm and to great days!!

    Every day that we get up, sure does beat the alternative! Your aquarium looks great!

    Nice - we had an aquarium for years but gave it up when we came to Florida.

    Too cool! There is something really peaceful about the gentle burbling of water and the smooth undulating motions of the fish in the water and the greenery. So glad you got this done to enjoy! Nothing worse then something lying around unused and collecting dust.

    Love the aquarium! Tetra Neons are on of my favorites, they make for a more active display. Enjoy your day and evening!

    emoticon Marsha, someone said that any day you wake up on THIS side of the dirt is a good day, LOL I'm glad you're able to run. I'm not there yet, and may never be, but it looks like such fun!

    Did you ever find out how you got sore, Marsha? I don't recall reading about it in your blogs. In any case, I hope you recover soon!

    Love your fish!! And as someone who will never be able to run a 5k, I'm not offended. I have a similar perspective. Yesterday I worked out in the yard for over an hour for the first time in over a year. Anyday I feel good enough to do more than my norm is a great day!!

    emoticon Your fishies look happy and I bet the room is warmer and much easier to relax around then the empty one for sure.

emoticon Your being a runner now after working

so hard to get to that point does not discourage me for one.

It encourages me and uplifts me when you talk about it.

To inspire me to walk, jog and yes maybe one day run !

    Beautiful! And very peaceful. You've inspired me to finish a project too - finally hang some prints from our trips in 2012 - with DH's help of course.

    Fish are so calming. Especially if *I* don't have to clean the tank! LOL.

So great you'll be able to run with your group again! Moving tenderly today myself, but went out for a gentle walk with SPINNINGJW this morning. About to head off for the blood bank. Today IS a good day! Spark on!
