We had beautiful weather today. I waited for Cooper to get himself out of bed this morning, just to see how long he would stay in bed after I got up... We didn't go for our walk until Noon! Sleepy puppy. After I took him for a long walk I changed and went for a run. After yesterday's long run, I said I was going to go for 2 miles today, but it ended up being 3 miles. Oh well. If I have time to run tomorrow maybe I will succeed at running 2 miles.
My family got together for dinner today. Cooper comes along, so we went the long way to get there so he could do his "business" before we got there. Dinner was lovely. We had roast lamb and pork chops, carrots, corn, green beans, salad, fresh fruit, garlic bread, sweet potatoes and pickled beets. Then the girls did their little egg hunt in the backyard. The youngest did most of the finding. I gave my brother, Jeremy, the Firefly board game for Christmas, and he broke it out after dinner and we played for a while, then had ice cream for dessert. Things broke up around 8pm, so Cooper and I walked the long way home again. I ate quite a bit at dinner, but I am still within my calorie range for the day, as I ate lightly earlier in the day. Our dinner conversations go some strange places. At one point we were discussing how fast a vulture can deflesh a carcass. This was followed up by the dietary habits of chickens. I am always entertained at family dinners!
Tomorrow is supposed to be another lovely day, but I have an appointment, so I might not have time to go for a run. I will definitely get Cooper out for a long walk in the morning though.
I hope everyone had a good Easter!
