Saturday morning I was sitting on the deck sipping my coffee and reading my book. Although the reading wasn’t going so well. I was consistently interrupted by all of the little woodland creatures who co-habitat in and around our yard.
As I tried to capture a really awesome picture to share with you (never happened, they are too darn speedy!) I was reminded of a conversation that I had with my friend Cheryl a couple of years ago. I was telling her about a time when I was on a cruise with my friends. We had all branched off one afternoon to enjoy different adventures. I was back onboard first and enjoying the view from my stateroom balcony. I looked down and noticed a sea turtle swimming directly below me! It was SO cool! I wanted to take a picture but I was afraid if I turned to grab my camera I would lose it. I stayed and watched it peacefully float around the beautiful Caribbean blue ocean. All of a sudden it waved it’s front flippers and dove out of sight. When I told Cheryl that I was sorry I hadn’t gotten a picture she looked at me and said “you weren’t meant to, that moment was just for you.”.
I frequently think about those words of wisdom from Cheryl and smile to myself…just for me.
I like to have fun as much as the next gal, however I am very much a homebody. My favorite weekend is the one with zero plans. This long holiday weekend did not disappoint. Jenn had me over for lunch on Friday.
Phil found a “Fast and Loud” marathon on Saturday. I know way more about cars than should be allowed.
I managed to push through a 3 mile run on Sunday morning. I started on the street and finished up on the track. I cannot decide which is more boring, the track or the treadmill. Nah, it’s the treadmill! I had a lot of pain in my neck but I knew I wasn’t damaging anything so I pushed through. I think I just might be able to tackle the Red Dress Run next weekend! Stay tuned.
- Homebody or on the go?
- What did you do this weekend?
- Do you name your vehicle?
