Good morning friends.. spent a glorious few hours DTS yesterday.. Got there a little before 8, bought a day pass on line. Grabbed a spot and very quickly it began to fill up. Beach officially opened at 9am so shortly thereafter I stood in the line with my app to get my actual bracelets.. I watched as group after group of people were turned away because they did not get a pass for the day, they had already sold out..
Weather was amazing, water brisk at first, but then ok. It was low tide so you had to really walk out far to start to get into deep enough water to jump the waves.. I had a blast.. hubby didn't hang in the water as much as I did, he took shelter under the umbrella. We tried out the new beach "blanket" we ordered.. love this thing.. it is light weight nylon, the sand comes off easily, it comes with 4 little stakes to anchor it in and it folds up into a cute little bag. We did get a few minutes of quiet direct ocean view time until a family spread out in front of us and blocked the view.. except for a nice portion that the lifeguards had roped off where no one was allowed to sit.. this was my uninterrupted sacred space..
We left at noon and headed home.. hubby napped, and then headed to the store.. truck needs new tires.. UGH.. over $1000 but they are a must.. I worked out in the pool and got in 1 mile of walking for #runobx. then showered up, made a tossed salad, grabbed a loaf of sour dough bread and headed to visit my boy, his son and wife.. Col made us penne vodka for dinner and it was delicious.
Ryder was awake and chatty, he had moments of sheer pleasure, but he also had bouts of cranky, now when I say bouts, it was more like a minute here a minute there. except at one point, he did hard cry for about 2-3 minutes but man that feels like an eternity... he was up a good portion of the day, and hadn't napped well so he was definitely overtired and it was hot.. I felt like crying a little too. But momma to the rescue, nuzzled just right, feeling perfectly safe, he quieted down, and was ready for a bottle.. she swaddled him up and got him started then handed him off to me to finish up.
Came home and passed out cold. When I visit with Ryder, those nights, I drift off to sleep easily an well.
Need to make my myzone goal today.. It is the last day of the month and I haven't broken the mark yet.. which is insane because I've run and walked and worked out .. and FORGOT to put the stupid thing on multiple times.. anyway.. it is sheer vanity, I am almost platinum and if I don't achieve it, I will start from square one earning that level, so today I am going to wear it this morning when I walk/run and tonight when I outdoor kickbox at #cko..
Also, spent some time with my thoughts about yesterday's post as I floated in the pool and jotted down some more random thoughts which are building and forming into something more.
Well gotta go plug into myzone and get this party started!
Have an awesome day!
