Mid-week Miscellany


The painted sky at sunset yesterday evening really made me miss my BRF (best running friend) who moved away at the end of November.  Our mid-week runs would frequently end as the sun was setting.  On the occasion when there were clouds in the sky, we would stare at the sky and just take it all in.  I enjoyed the sky last night, but it wasn't the same.


I'm making progress on my laptop hunt.  I've narrowed it down to two possibilities.  One is a reasonably priced lightweight Win7 machine.  The other is a more expensive Win8.1 machine with longer battery life, better keyboard, and an extra USB port.  Right now I'm trying to decide which of those features are more important to me (Win7 and lower cost vs better battery/keyboard and extra USB port).

My step count for yesterday was 9942.  If I had looked at my pedometer before taking it off when I went to bed, I might have walked to the kitchen one more time to get to 10K steps.  D'oh!

Spent more time reviewing my Galloway half-marathon training plan.  There are many of aspects of this that get me excited.  Will have a long post about it when I am able to get started.

One final note.  Daughter and puppy have been staying with us most of the time from right before Thanksgiving.  Today she moves into a new place.  This morning I took a parting shot of puppy's adorable one ear up, one ear down face.  This is probably just a phase; at some point both ears should go up.  But for now it's pretty darn cute.

  1. The painted sky is lovely. I hate shopping for laptops. So much money for features we never use...

  2. The pup's ear is so cute!
    When Bo is tired one of his ears doesn't stand all the way up, but when he is awake it is standing at attention!

  3. I love it when puppies have no control over their ears. Totally endearing!
