For a short week, it was a long week. Kind of.
|Not a bad pace. Definitely on track to improve my half marathon|
|Post-run, feeling smug.|
|On Sunday, I went to Folsom to see an old choir friend perform|
in "Guys and Dolls."
|So much of Folsom has changed...but some things stay the same.|
|The show was great--very well done, and good to see my friend|
Mike, who was so tickled that I came. After, I stopped at Snook's
because of course I stopped at Snook's.
|This building used to be yellow with purple trim, and it housed|
Stamp Mania, where I spent several Christmases and summers
during high school and college working.
|California has been showing off a lot lately.|
|Monday was a day for Game of Thrones and not much else.|
I'm finally caught up. The conversations about GoT with Matt
at my training sessions have been epic.
|Drown in my love handles? Get down in my love handles?|
Both? Either way...thanks for pointing out my love handles.
|When your pedicure matches your favorite blanket.|
|School laptop: Stolen.|
|Because my computer was gone, and my voice was going, I|
played the CD that goes with this book for my kinders.
|Someone pulled the eyes off the horse puppet!! I was just as|
sad about this as I was about my laptop.
|Fingerprinting dust on my desk.|
|The answer to negative energy--creativity.|
|Even weird creativity.|
|I wear socks when I work out with Matt. Might as well wear|
|With a uke strapped to my back and my (personal) laptop in|
my arms, off to teach the kinders.
|National Teddy Bear Day! Harry Bear was bought in a fit|
of homesickness when I lived in England. He's very huggable.
|On Friday, we Jamba. Apples and Greens. Yum.|
|Oops. The supply truck caught a bit of tree.|
|I didn't have much teaching on Friday, so I used the time to|
plan, plan, plan, and complete the mandatory Child Abuse
Reporting training online...which is depressing as hell.
|I did go over to TK for a short lesson, as they'd missed their|
normal time on the Monday holiday.
|At the church where our TK and Kindergarten classes|
are being held for now--it seemed appropriate, given the
|I also stopped by one of my first grade classes. It was nice, on|
a day filled with so much sorrowful remembrance, to have the
opportunity to read a silly book to young kids, who giggled
uproariously at the silly pictures and words.
|We have a lot of smoke around here from the massive Butte|
fire. It's really, really bad up there, and I hope all involved are
|I was at Midas last Saturday for new brake pads. I was there|
again today for new headlights. RoPro is a great car, but she's
getting kind of high-maintenance. She's 12, so it's likely
by year's end I'll be getting a new car.
|Today I celebrate three years. I'm not 130 now, as I was in the|
after photo, but I've gained more muscle, I've run two half
marathons, earned my Certified Personal Trainer certificate,
and I'm training with Matt again. I think I'm doing okay.
|The Midas waiting room has comfy chairs.|
|Spent much of my day reading and watching movies on Netflix.|
I have this lingering cold/allergy thing going on and my nose
is so plugged up. Still planning to try to run a 5K race tomorrow,
even if I have to walk more than usual.
