Good morning! I slept in today so this will be a brief one because I want to make sure I make time to get outside for a walk before church.
Yeah, my first-thing-in-the-morning walking experiment was short-lived. It’s ideal for summertime, when it’s light out and warm when I wake up, but lately I’ve been waking up in the dark, and it was only 38 degrees this morning! Let’s just say I’d rather have my coffee first and go outside after it warms up a bit.
But that means I have to be really disciplined about getting off the computer… which is always the challenge for me. I have a way of falling down the rabbit hole and ending up with about 25 tabs open with all sorts of extraneous tasks going on at once. By the time I get back to the primary goal (i.e. writing this post) it’s time to get on with my day.
And…..that is pretty much what just happened! So let me get on with it.
It has been an absolutely glorious weather weekend here in Philly, despite the cooler than average temperatures. Yesterday morning, Paul and I took Savannah (our little Shichon, for anyone not familiar–that’s a cross between tae Shih Tzu and a Bichon Frise) over to a nearby preserve with walking/hiking trails.
She is terrified of the car because that usually means she is going to the vet or the groomer, so she was shaking like a leaf, poor thing. But once we got to our destination, she was happy as a clam in sand. She’s something like 12 or 13 years old (we aren’t sure because she was a rescue) but she kept up with us for at least a mile, probably closer to two. We need to do that more often–for us, and for her!
Then after running some errands in the afternoon, I came back home and assembled a lasagna for lunch today. It was Becca’s birthday request, so of course I obliged, but that’s a labor of love, let me tell you! We love Ina’s Lasagna with Goat Cheese recipe; it’s been my go-to for years. If you haven’t tried it, you should! It sounds weird, but even people who claim to be picky eaters love it when I make it for them.
Before I hop off, I just want to mention that deal on Apple AirPods–they’re still $89 at Amazon, and I haven’t seen them that low anywhere else. Evidently a LOT of you purchased them from My Favorite Things, so I wanted to mention them again in case you missed it because they make great gifts. I even ordered a backup pair, since every once in a while, someone in my house loses theirs (or drops one in the sink… ahem, that was me!)
Okay, that’s all I’ve got time for today. I hope you have a restful and blessed Sunday!
