good morning all! hope you had a good Monday. my day started off well--got a 4 mile run done and felt really good. I am working back up to my old 5 miles, and today was a big jump in the distance. it was neat--I had to stop about 100 feet from my car to give over the right of way to a police officer working with a tracking dog. I didn't want to distract the dog from his track, so I just stood and watched until they got far enough ahead I could get to my car. a friend of mine trains police dogs, sniffer dogs etc. and they live near the park, so we often see K-9 units out here.
got home and kind of coasted for a couple hours--was waiting for Marianne to come by so I could help her order some things from amazon. when she had our group out for dinner, we gave her a nice gift card from amazon and she had chosen all the things she wanted. before she arrived, Patrick showed up with stale bread for the chickens. while we were feeding the chicks and watching them, Marianne arrived and we all headed inside for hot tea and to sample the YUMMY black bean flourless brownies Marianne had made. had such a nice visit, and our other dear friend called while we were all chatting, so we made plans to meet for late breakfast tomorrow. talked for a good 90 min. or more then worked up mariannes order, gave some eggs to another friend who stopped by, then rob was home and it was time to throw together some dinner. fortunately he opted for veggie chili, which is very quick to make. so after a couple quiet hours I have been non stop all afternoon and now into suppertime. will be glad when its time to chill out on the sofa!
have a great evening!
