Turkey day week

Originally uploaded by arahbahn

Nothing too exciting, but still plenty to give thanks for. These things include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • We’ve had snow. A few times! But none that makes driving difficult or snowboarding fun.
  • I ran a 5k pre-holiday race today, and evidently won my division! No wonder it hurt so bad, even if for just 24 minutes. 7:45 for my first mile, yow. Yay for Great Harvest bread & cookies as post-race nosh. And yay for co-workers who run races, too!
  • I’ve decided to run the Memphis 5k, in two weeks. I may have wussed out on a winter half-marathon, but I’m still enjoying running. And, I’m excited to visit a new town!
  • Hubbie and I are finally taking a road trip with my new car. Southward, ho!
  • We might even try a night or two of camping, during that trip. We like camping, but haven’t found time to do it in a long time.
  • We have a short week, ahead. Yay! Or, a normal length one that includes a turkey dinner and visiting with relatives. Double yay! Pumpkin pie! Sweet potato casserole! Buckeyes! Nom nom.
  • I tried a new pose in yoga, last week: bird of paradise. It was scary, and wobbly.
  • Today I went to an inspiring lecture by Dr. John Francis, who teaches us that we can change the world by changing ourselves. Here’s more info on what he’s up to.
  • Yesterday I made a batch of tomato chutney dip, and took some to Tim’s party. We stil have the other half of the batch here, to enjoy, this week.
  • Mom continues her courageous work, keeping beachcombers away from beached sea lions on the Oregon coast.
  • It’s almost time for our new year’s day party, again!

  1. Wow, I made a very me-centric post. Which is a appropriate for a blog, I suppose. I need to add a few more thanks, for: loving family and friends, plentiful food, warm shelter. Health, strength, courage. Music. It is good to be alive.
