Today’s Calendar Quote:Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.” — Martin Luther

The sun is out today!!!!!
It’s been over a week since I saw it last and it is glorious haha

The worst part of winters here isn’t the cold or the snow, but the lack of sunshine for long periods of time. It’s a lovely spring day today though and while it is so lovely, it is kind of cruel too. It’s only the middle of January in Canada so this beautiful warmer weather is a rather horrible tease, especially with snow expected this weekend! We already have a higher than normal snowfall so hopefully it doesn’t warm up too fast like last year and have crazy flooding for weeks. I live too close to the lake for this not to become a touch stressful!

Day 67 ~ crushed PR

Day 67 ~ January 13th, 2018

I did a long run today, the first I’ve done since the fall when I did my last race of the season. It felt great and I completely crushed my 10km time!! My previous one was 49min and 55-56secs I believe and today I finished 10.3km in 50minutes even *fist pump* The hard focus on shorter, faster paced runs for the months of Nov and Dec have clearly paid off and I’m so glad!

Today’s Calendar Quote:There is a basket of fresh bread on your head, yet you go door to door asking for crusts.” — Rumi

A fantastic morning despite being incredibly sore from my core workout yesterday! Kidlet was in a great mood so that means the day start off on the right foot and it gives up more options to begin his schedule with as well.

This morning we went to the indoor track as I’ve wanted to take him for a while and not able to get it planned just right. All that changed this morning and he did amazing there and he had fun!! It was a mish-mash of walking and running but we ended up going just under two kilometers. I can’t wait to take him back again and I am ecstatic that he seems to actually like running!

Today’s Calendar Quote:We are born from a quiet sleep, and we die to a calm awakening.” — Zhuangzi

I went to my mom’s new place with a friend of hers to help do some piddley stuff around there this morning. It was a good little chunk of fix ups done in a few hours and it got me a couple of curtain rods for my place and two metal rods to make raised bird feeders that the squirrels can’t climb.

Day 63 ~ January 9th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: dight ~ to clothe or equip
Today’s Calendar Quote:How wonderful! How wonderful! The inanimate expounding the Dharma. What an ineffable truth!” — Tung-shan

Energy-wise it was an extremely slow morning. I couldn’t get my ‘get-up-and-go’ going a hundred percent until much later in the afternoon. I nearly opted to do groceries a different day, but I knew that would just make me frazzled as far as time goes so I didn’t choose that route. I am so glad I didn’t because I saw a co-worker from my old job at the grocery store and I hadn’t seen him in a couple of years. Turns out he is about to leave the same place as well for partly the same reason I did, but it’s now a thousand times worse than when I left about 4 years ago. Considering how much it is stressing him out, I am so glad to hear he is cutting himself loose and I know he’ll find something better if he chooses to find other work.

He is easily one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met and I was so glad to run into him randomly this afternoon!
