I headed to the trail to meet Bahama Mama for Run #1 of the day. We got in 3.5 humid, sticky miles. We did our best to maintain a steady pace but somehow managed to come in slower than last week. Uh, oh well. Chalk it up to the heat. I blame everything on the heat! Hot as it is, I love starting off my day running with Mama. We make the most of the miles we cover and have the best conversations. From makeup, to theology and everything in between. She's a good friend and I am thankful to have such an edifying relationship in her. We all need good people in our lives!
This weekend I watched about four episodes of the show, Hoarders. I am most certainly not a hoarder. But that show always makes me want to get rid of things. I loooove to purge our home of "stuff." It makes Hubs nervous because we really don't have much to get rid of. So this weekend I settled for some pre-packing. I have a small collection of vintage pink pottery. Some McCoy, most of it unmarked, none of it particularly valuable. It was one of the first collections I had as an adult. I do love my pink pottery but it's time to move on. So I packed it up. Maybe in our next house we'll have the perfect spot and it will be new again.Work was good. I got some good news and we are one day closer to a long weekend. Don't get me wrong, I love my job - but I love holiday weekends too! We've got some fun plans for this one. So, obviously, I'm couting the days!
North Texas got a nice surprise this afternoon. On the drive home dark, ominous clouds filled the sky. And those clouds were heavy with precious water. Whattya know, it started raining. I can almost hear my yard groaning in delight. Rain water!
My coaching gig was called off due to the storms so Hubs and I actually got to eat supper together. This is a rarity for a week night. If I'm not running, he's playing hockey. But tonight, we have the evening free! Being the excellent cook that I am (cough) I "made" frozen pizza. I did add some color to my side. Can you tell which side is mine??? My tummy is full and now I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Yum!
Getting to stay home this evening Made my Monday. The extra time with Hubs is a blessing. He's my favorite person in the whole world! I don't even mind that I missed my run. He's totes worth it!
What Made Your Monday?
