MM: January 23

Hi friends! I have a quick post today, because as of this writing, I’m feeling quite under the weather.  I forgot I had taken this picture last Sunday night, but missed sharing it with you last week. Jasper is terrified of Chris’ guitars, but has no problem hiding behind them.


I ran a total of 6 miles last week, probably my lowest weekly mileage in at least 3 years… due to my cold and a really busy week in general.  Tuesday night I made it out for 3 miles, and it was a bit chilly but felt really good to get outside again!


Jasper has been oh so in love with his paper bag and sham wow.  Hah. Buy him toys and buy him toys and he plays with random junk!


Thursday night I was able to get back outside again with Amy and Jenn.  It was a great run, felt really good the whole time.  Too bad after that run, I really started going downhill.


Friday I progressively felt worse and worse, and spent all day Saturday and Sunday feeling the full effects of a nasty head cold.


That’s about all I’ve got this week. Not much to share, because not much happened! I do have 1 huge great bit of news, Chris and I have picked a venue and settled on a wedding date! YAY!  More news to come soon!

I’m hoping to rest up and kick this cold’s butt, so I can get back out on the roads and get my growing to do list back under control!  Have a great week!

Thursday Thoughts: February 12

The theme of the past week has been SICK.  Last weekend, I came down with a head cold that quickly turned into a chest cold.  I went to the doctor Monday and was told I not only had bronchitis, but also a sinus infection.  Greeeaaaat.

Last weekend the weather was gorgeous.  Gorgeous enough for sitting on the balcony barefooted with Jasper.

Saturday I had a nice run, it was actually warm, sunny, breezy, a perfect spring day.  Saturday evening I started feeling sickish, but brushed it off as allergies.  Then Sunday I woke up to go to the Groupie run, and felt terrible.  I went anyway, hoping to run 9 miles for a long run, and ended up managing 4 miles.  I haven’t run since.  I’d like to run this evening, but haven’t decided yet.  I know my body needs rest, this cold has gone on a long time.

Since I haven’t done much except sleep, rest, and lay around blowing my nose all week, I’ll leave you with a few pictures of Jasper. James caught this picture the other night, his little tongue is sticking out.  Silly Jasper.

Jasper’s favorite new hiding/sleeping place is behind/underneath the quilt rack.  It took James and I a few attempts to find him the first time.  It must be quiet and cool and dark back there, good napping spot.

Jasper has really gotten used to going outside for at least a few minutes almost every day.  Since it’s gotten cold and I don’t feel well, I’ve been letting him out and sitting inside to keep an eye on him.  He’s on to my devious plan of staying inside while he’s out.

This weekend is Valentine’s Day; James and I will be celebrating by going to dinner and a movie (maybe 2 movies!)  Do you have plans?  Happy Valentine’s Day!
