It was a busy week of errands, visiting mom, and working on projects. A cold front last weekend blew out all the hot air, only to have it come back with a vengeance by week's end. I'm joining Kim @ Kimrunsonthefly and Deborah @ Confessionsofamotherrunner, and going longer again but keeping the "easy" runs short … Continue reading More Weather Whiplash: 5/16 – 22 WRD
It's Friday as I sit down to write this post. Usually I try to write a bit as the week goes along, but it was a busy week. As usual it's hard to remember what I did yesterday, let alone a few days ago! I'm joining Kim @ Kimrunsonthefly and Deborah @ Confessionsofamotherrunner, and maintaining … Continue reading Happy Full Moon: 5/9 – 15 WRD
Poor little guy Yesterday I let Bandit out. I don't always watch him, but usually I do because I like to know when he's done something.

Happy Easter or Passover if you celebrate! My Icalendar tricked me into thinking Passover began Thursday night. Oops! I know Mr. Judy enjoyed that brisket anyway. Turns out we had a little house drama on Friday, so maybe starting Passover early ended up being a good thing (nothing too dramatic, but annoying & frustrating). Title … Continue reading Let Freedom Ring: 4/11 – 17 WRD
Nope, there were no hikes this week. The waterfalls in the subject refers to the massive amounts of rain we got, and the fact that the path I ran at a couple of days ago sprouted little waterfalls everywhere. At least it wasn't flooded like one of the paths where we walked last week! I'm … Continue reading Waterfalls Everywhere: 4/4 – 10 WRD
