A better day today - first, the scales showed a HUGE loss (customary for the first week, I know!), then my husband rode with me on today's commute - I went one direction (to a family farm waaaaaay down in the corner of the state) while he went to MA to help our Archeologist on a project: using ground penetrating radar to locate a mass grave, site of a 1700's massacre. It was a fun day for him, and he deserved a break in the job hunt. I miss that drive time with him (we always rode together before moving here for my job).
My day started with a present: our Congressman issued, to me, a very impressive-looking proclamation for a recent project. WOW! I'm sure they do that all the time, but still, it made the last 5 months of chaos seem insignificant. Public servants aren't often viewed positively - but this was such a nice gesture. SO....I will commit to also expressing gratitude more freely than I have recently. It might just change an entire day, or week, for someone and costs little.
Food - spot-on, except for a 1/2 slice of shortcake (the farmers wife made it for ME, so I couldn't refuse.) They are strawberry farmers, so of course, the shortcake was topped with FRESH just-picked strawberries (no sugar).
Garmin is strapped on, dog is leashed and we're ready for our 2 miles. Tonight, will be a very hilly course. Glutes will be a-burnin'.
I haven't had time to discover how to easily read blogs and posts....that is tonights project, as I have a ton of replies to catch up with.
