Found a nice mid-run spot to grab a selfie, on the first day of the year warm enough to go for a run in shorts and a t-shirt. 📷#mbfeb
Got a sampler of Revolution Brewing IPAs. @jackieLbrewer and I are each having pasties and an Anti-Hero.
I got rid of a bunch of clothes I didn’t wear, and made enough open space in my closet that the clothes I have left can almost go in without needing to be mashed up against each other.
I walked to lunch today, and paused along the way to take pictures of some of the lichens I saw.
There were only a few species represented (I assume, based purely on superficial appearance, which my brother tells me is not actually a good way to identify lichens).
I also saw this handsome moss along the way:
Someone on Twitter was just mentioning that the fact of their easy visibility in winter is one of the best things about lichens.
I took some pretty good pictures of Jackie in 2019. Here’s a selection:
There are plenty of others. Visit my images site for a bunch more pictures of Jackie and other things I thought were worth taking a look at.
Walking outside yesterday I realized I was not SAD, even though the solstice was just three days away. In fact, I was very nearly gleeful. And the feeling has persisted. It’s like it’s late February and spring is coming!
“I’m finally warm!” I say, checking the clock to see that the indoor temperature has… exceeded 74°F. “Oh.”
Started raining while I was in the bank, but my flat cap did the trick. Now luxuriating with a Divine Hammer DIPA while I wait for the other Esperantists to arrive.
After the Rattlesnake Master 10k I came down with either a very nasty cold or else a moderately nasty case of the flu. Whatever virus it was, it had me pretty much down for the count for a solid week. Today was the first day in almost two weeks I felt up to a run.
Picked up my race number and pinned it to my sweatshirt for tomorrow’s race.
