I’m Thinking Out Loud pretty much totally randomly this week: wondering why I only saw 2 geese, why I hate repetitive tasks but will do the same workouts, and, of course, sharing furkid photos. Kind of a quiet week in CRJ land this week — except for the wind! Holy Moly! Did you have to run in that crazy wind?
I did. Not once, not twice, but for all three runs this week!
New blog name
Well, no, I’m actually not changing the name of the blog. Although I did think of part of a new one that I really wish I’d thought of before I started the blog! If I ever do decide to change the name, at least I have a fallback.
And no, not gonna say what it is, because then someone will snap it up. Not you fine people, of course, but someone.
Just 2 geese?
The other day I was out walking Lola and I saw just 2 geese flying.
It seemed strange to me. So I googled “2 geese”, naturally, and found out that:
Geese fly in V formation. The flapping of wings of one goose creates an uplift for the goose immediately following. Flying in V formation adds at least 71% greater flying range, than if each goose flew alone. When the goose in front gets tired, another goose will take over the front position. Geese will honk to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
Geese have strong affections for others in their group. If a goose gets sick or is wounded, a couple of other geese may drop out of formation to help and protect him. They will try to stay with the disabled goose until he dies or is able to fly again. They will then either fly together or join another formation to catch up with their group.
From this web post. There’s a lot more information there, too!
Just don’t make me repeat myself
I don’t like to repeat myself and I don’t like repetitive tasks.
Yet I’ll work out to the same DVDs over and over and over again.
Have you heard of WIAW (what I ate Wednesday)?
So yesterday I was planning to do one — that is take pictures of what I was eating all day to share next week. Except I woke up a little late, and I totally forgot to take a photo of breakfast.
So I moved on to a day in the life, because I enjoyed a post on someone’s blog — I’m sorry, I don’t remember which one — if it’s you please comment! I really have to take better notes somehow.
So yesterday I was jotting down everything I was doing. I might share it Monday.
Weekly cute photo of Lola. She was subjected to the dreaded bloodwork (annual) and fasting; she was such a good girl about not getting breakfast until 10 am! And the vet said her bloodwork was perfect.
Gizmo will do tricks for treats
My husband noticed how cool Giz looked with his shadow, so I grabbed the Ipod.
Do your furkids do tricks?
Ever wanted to change your blog name? Ever actually changed your blog name?
I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for her:
