I'm joining Coco and Deborah and sharing how I'm making my hot beverages now and a very odd thing I saw in a trail parking lot recently. It has now become my daily tea kettle If we were enjoying tea/coffee . . .I'd tell you I don't know what I was searching for when I stumbled across … Continue reading Don’t get coffee in my tea: Tea/coffee Date October 2022
Hitchikers: Tea/coffee Date September 2022
I'm joining Coco and Deborah and sharing random odd encounters lately. If we were enjoying tea/coffee . . .I'd tell you about the woman with the walking shorts. As in she walked in the same shorts every single time I saw her for days. Does she own multiple pairs? It just seemed odd. Eventually I did see … Continue reading Hitchikers: Tea/coffee Date September 2022

Of course Lola does them too, and Gizmo, but it just struck a chord with me with … Continue reading I want to run like a dog

Good judgement comes from experience
Oddly enough, I don't find runners to be judgemental, the Wednesday Word for this week. You know who I do find to be judgemental? The non-runners! I am a solid BOTP (back of the packer) to sometimes MOTP (middle of the pack), depending on the race and who shows up. My most recent race was a small race … Continue reading Good judgement comes from experience
