Daily gratitude: Today I’m grateful that the snow on the sidewalk melted before I had to shovel it.
We wouldn’t want to make it a regular thing, but just for 2021 I propose that we consider the year as beginning on January 20th. That would make today January -18.
Pretty icy out there.
After a couple of nights of poor sleep mid-week due to stress, I’ve now had a couple of nights of good sleep, including last night.
Only very old playgrounds still have monkey bars, jungle gyms, or pull-up bars. This modern playground at least has a horizontal bar at the top of the slides which is suitable for doing inverted rows. I took the opportunity of running past to do a quick set. 🏃🏻♂️
Chilly and blustery today, but sunny and not at all dreary. Strong winds overnight took down nearly all the leaves—but not the ones on the sycamores!
Went out a little fast at the start, partially because it’s chilly and I was cold, but mostly because it felt so good to run a little fast. 🏃🏻♂️ Photo from about the mid-point, where I managed to ease it back down a little.
Yesterday Jackie and I split a pint of @DESTIHLbrewery’s latest Deadhead, Haze of the Dead, just in time for Halloween.
During a pandemic it didn’t seem safe to teach taiji indoors. But we missed the practice and the camaraderie. So we moved to the park, put on masks, and carried on.
