This image is from today's APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day - my homepage). It's a "Fogbow" over Ocean Beach in...Haven't been writing!!
San Francisco San Diego (I stood corrected by the photographer! Thanks, Keith!. Go to APOD to check it out!! THEN go to Keith's blog to see even more incredible photos.
I just haven't had a moment to sit down and write, much less do other stuff around the house that has to get done. There is still a HUGE stack of papers that need to be filed; I FINALLY got to the pile of clean clothes that were spread out on the guest bed waiting to be folded; I FINALLY went to the store to replenish the very depleted cupboard and fridge (no bananas! no eggs! no cheese! no cucumbers or spinach! the list went on...); I FINALLY got Quasi smog-checked so I could complete my car registration; I FINALLY registered for the Santa Barbara Triathlon and figured out a few other races to do...you would think with a 3 day weekend I would've had time to do all this and more.
But no, I didn't.
Anyway, I don't have a lot of time right now, either. But things are happening. I'm finally sitting down with my friend who is also a coach to talk about website work in exchange for a Vineman coaching plan (YES!).
I'm riding around Lake Tahoe on Sunday and planning to meet up with Courtenay and Greg for dinner on Saturday (YES!).
I went to yoga last night and was able to successfully hold some balance poses I've never been able to hold (YES!).
I went to a track workout on Tuesday evening with the Empire Runner's Club of Santa Rosa at a different track than I'd been running alone at and it was SO GREAT. Running with people (esp track workouts - I can run trails alone) is SO MUCH BETTER and harder!
I've been cooking a LOT and have some REALLY DELICIOUS recipes to share. I even made chocolate chip cookies last night for the first time in ages. I forgot how easy they are. I made the rest of the dough into ready-to-bake balls and froze them so now I can have fresh-baked cookies any time.
So anyway, in between all of that, working a full-time job and of course, training LOTS...hasn't left me a lot of time to write. I realized the other week that I've really enjoyed blogging - between the friendships I've created through this triathlon blog world and also simply getting back into the habit of writing regularly. I have always loved writing and similar to reading, fell away from it after college. It's so much easier to write when you do it on a regular basis.
BTW, I'm thinking that the weekend after next (June 14 or 15) I'd like to do a Vineman course ride. If anybody is interested, let me know if you'd like to come along. If you want to come up the night before if you live further away, just let me know!
Recipes to follow shortly, as well as a possible guest writer.
Out for now!
