My marigolds, hello! I thought you should know the first of the spinach seeds sprouted today.
I arrived home in the center of a work whirlwind. Thoughts of the job drifted away, however, when I saw this little guy poking up from the ground.
A great afternoon preceded by a great morning, probably because I randomly slipped my Claddagh ring on my index finger when I woke up at 4:55 this morning. I had a 3.5 mile run date with a friend and caught a few more miles on the treadmill after work (after admiring the spinach, of course). I’ve found that stress (and reflection) are best left to sweat, though I am always so resistant to start exercising. I’d rather eat trail mix and pretend to work out than actually do it…
Workouts this Week: On Sunday, Tim and I ran through downtown Nashville and across the pedestrian bridge, waving at the symphony building when we passed. (What’s up with the river bridge? I frequented one in Omaha, too.) On Monday I ran 5 miles on the treadmobile with a little side of yoga. Today was a 3.5-mile morning and a 3-mile evening. Tomorrow I am taking a BREAK… and trying a Jillian CD. Yeah…Probably won’t like it.
Did I have trail mix on all of these days in exasperating quantities? Yes, yes I did.
Marigolds, I really can’t wait until baby cold frame spinach becomes…

What’s the most you’ve run on a treadmill?
Do you like or hate when your job is stressing you out?
— At this particular job, I kind of like it. (If only for the change of scenery.) I’m sure extended stress will force me to eat my words. But only if it comes to that.
