Tuesday: Looks like still no sun today! Cloudy most of the day yesterday. But the sun did make an appearance in the late afternoon. But we had a LOT of rain overnight. And looks like weíre in for more today. Dry tomorrow? HOPE so. Will have to defer the back yard mow till it dries out.

Today . . . . no appointments, so . . . weíll see what we get done today. Have to finish mowing the back yard.

Hereís to a great Tuesday.

My half in the heat went well, and actually, the weather/course were not that bad until the last mile. The last mile was entirely in the sun down a black road. My overall pace was good.

We had folks over for gaming Sunday afternoon, and then yesterday and today I am mostly trying to finish up the grading for one of my summer classes because grades are due tomorrow by noon, and the students are cutting it nice and close.

The dogs and me are looking forward to cooler weather hopefully starting tomorrow!

Chilling out today and running a half marathon in the heat tomorrow! Thatís okay, I have no agenda except to take it easy and drink my electrolytes.

I put together all the tech for church tomorrow already since Iím not going to be there. Iím sure they will figure it out. Someone else has to know how to work zoom by now.

Our local run group holds Wednesday night practice runs in summer, and due to restrictions we had not had a mass start until last night, and it was awesome seeing all the people and running together up the hill!

I acquired a new cut of meat recently - beef navel. It's essentially beef belly, like pork belly. I don't have a smoker, so I cured it like corned beef and then stuck it in the crockpot overnight. It was good!

Today was farmer's market, and tonight is karaoke. Woohoo!

So cool by me today that folks at the Farmer's Market had on hats and gloves! I mean it was only about 55, I felt great, although my chihuahua was shivering, however, it could have been because he was nothing but attitude as well, yapping at everyone. He thinks he's tough, but everyone just thinks he's cute.

Enjoyed a nice cool run, and tomorrow is looking good for another cool one. No complaints from me. I ran a fast 6 in 85 degrees on Sunday, it was not fun. I'm hoping for cool weather through Sunday because I have a half-marathon.

Been having some delicious greens from my farm share with me meals. Dandelions and spring onions in my eggs and broccoli and swiss chard with dinner, and plenty of salad lettuce.

Got my run in before the rain this morning, and got the dogs to another local market without getting too wet this afternoon. This market is mostly entirely under a large pavilion, so that's nice.

Now, I am covered in dogs on my recliner. Not complaining!

I was going to run this afternoon, but we had thunderstorms instead, so it didn't quite work out. However, it has been cool enough with the rain to use fans to cool down the house, which is nice, and I suppose a second rest day is probably a smart move.

It is finally strawberry season, and I'm very excited for fresh strawberries!

Yesterday, I went to a fairly small, local race and did a 12K, and my pace was awesome, and I came in 3rd in my age group! Woohoo! I've never placed in anything before. Now, if even a few decent runners in my age group had shown up, I would not be so high, but small races are always up in the air.

Now, just trying to settle in for week 3 of 5 of my tightest summer class.

Well dude, get myself lost in work stuff for a couple of weeks and they decide to shut it all down! That's too bad.

Work stuff is nuts, getting my two classes up and running plus church things, etc. took far more time and effort that I originally anticipated. I'm trying though! At least my farm share started up so I have lovely greens in my house and made a large kale salad to eat the rest of this week. Yum!

Gorgeous weather. Warming up.

Today is Miss Lillyís (and Miss Daisy, her sister) 2nd birthday! Got her a Frosty Paws (a doggie ice cream) Yup . . . you guessed it . . . .she liked it! LOL Will have a video call w/her sister Miss Daisy and Miss Daisyís Mom!

Clara saw the specialist. We know she doesnít have: autoimmune thyroid disease, mononucleosis. Suspect: hyperthyroidism and definitely hormonal imbalances. So, await the diagnosis and treatment plan.

Got lots of housework done after we got back from the drive yesterday. Wahoo.

I am being ripped apart. on one hand, I am very happy . My wonderful granddaughter is expecting a baby. on the other hand, she using drugs to make herself happy or that is what she calls it . drugs raised it ugly head a few years back. she has been to rehab many times only to go back to it over and over . my grandson has gotten a job and is now working.
