Last week I wore gloves when I biked to work because the temp was 46 degrees. This morning it was 64 and humid. As I am typing this at 9:30 it is 77 - last week there were several days the high for the day never reached 77!
My training called for 3 miles this morning. I ran 2 with Sophie and then 1 more without her. She got spooked by a garden sprinkler - as we were running by a house the owner turned on the hose and the sputtering sound as air is going through the hose scared her. She bolted! I quickly let go of her leash - because there was no way of keeping up with her. I calmed her down - but as soon as we turned onto our street she was headed home. I had planned to loop around, but she knows that when we turn that corner we always go home - she did not want to loop around a side street and I didn't want to fight or try and persuade her - so we ran home - dropped her off and I finished up the 3 miles.
Then coffee on the patio! I had finished the run before the sun came up - but tried to capture a shot while enjoying my coffee!
I love the color of the purple carrots that I included in my salad. They came with last weeks CSA delivery - but don't quite understand why someone decided to make purple carrots! Ey are pretty to look at!
Lovely bike ride home eliminated some of the daily stress.
As soon as I got home we hoped in the car and tried out a new restaurant on the north side - Habanero's. I had 3 taco's and guacamole and chips. Todd had a burrito. All was delicious! We will be back. The restaurant previously had been a local pizza place, Rocky Rococca's - but went out of business last winter.
