I had already decided to take a week off running this week — good thing, too, because I can’t even begin to tell you how exhausted I was when I got back from my moms mid week. It’s always tiring, but throw in that extreme heat — wowza! I sincerely hope that I don’t have to do this again in the near future but who knows.
In the last 3 months I have “onboarded” 3 different aides. As tough as it is for me, I do keep in mind it’s even tougher for my mom. So not a huge amount of activity, #sorrynotsorry. I needed that — just a bit sorry that I missed some nice running weather this week.
I do find it a bit amusing that I tend to get in a lot more steps on rest days at my moms than I do at home. I can walk further on my own than I can with Mr. Judy and Bandit.

Nothing. I thought I might run today, and it was a beautiful morning, but yesterday I decided I wasn’t yet ready to rush out early. It’s unfortunate another heatwave is expected next week, but I’m sure I’ll manage.
Favorites of the week
I did stop in the afternoon at Montgomery Place last week on the way down. It was 95F. Yes, I sweated buckets. It helps to destress me though.
There is a funny (in hindsight) story to this trip that I’ll share when we gather over hot beverages next week.
We took advantage of the much cooler temps yesterday to give Bandit a much needed bath. He definitely seems less itchy now.
It has been forever since I’ve had Migas — which are strips of tortillas friend up with veggies and eggs. A friend posted a photo, and I was having FOMO. I used From the Ground Up Tortilla chips (Amazon Affiliate link here — although they are definitely cheaper in grocery stores) and then sautéed onion and peppers and added the eggs. Almost like a Mexican Matzo Brie (minus the matzo).
ICYMI: If travel — or stress — or both! — ends up in your back and neck, this is a great Yin/Kundalini practice to try. Practice with me here, I’m giving a short demo of bowtie here. If you want just one pose to help open up your shoulders and back, Bowtie is your new best friend.
Coming up on Friday: Friday I’ll be joining up with you over beverages. Taking a little blogging break to concentrate on some other things.
