good morning--a light rain is falling, but just about over with, so I can go run. got my 5 miles done on Friday. I actually ran a very short (VERY SHORT) burst at 9:50 minute mile. I about fell over when I looked at my garmin and saw that. my original goal was to be able to sustain a 12 min. mile pace and I got there fairly easily. now I am thinking a 10 min. mile pace is an achievable goal for me--but right now I am just working on the distance and not worrying too much about speed.
weekend was busy--did our little farmer's market on Saturday--sold some stuff and talked to a lot of nice people. came home and rob had been tilling and working very hard all morning. put my inventory away and then we got to work. we mulched the area around the train, he mowed and I did a lot of general clean up and stuff. yesterday we finished planting our vegetable garden, and leveled, sprayed and mulched a sort of open area that was really messy looking. rob spent some more time working on his train and I got some plants potted up. this week my big project is the sign I promised to make for the farmer's market. they really need a pretty, eye catching sign to help build interest. I have a positive feeling about this little venture. it could grow into something very nice if people will keep committed to it. the sign will help give it some credibility.
guess that's all for now--have a great Monday!

    that's so exciting about a 9:50 mile! I'm not a runner, but I'm really happy I can walk a 14 minute mile. Like Livedaily the rain here was MONSOONAL today. Glad yours was light!

    A light rain is nice. It's raining cats and dogs here. Really. I think I saw a maltese and a persian just go by lol. Seriously, it's a heavy rain, and because we've had so much of it lately, we are now under a flash flood advisory. I'm lucky as I don't live near any creeks, brooks, streams, or rivers that could flood, but it's still worrisome. Hope your Monday was good, and that the rest of your week is nice as well!
