Work, gym, sleep

I feel like I've used that title before but as long as it fits, I suppose I don't care.

In an effort to step up my health and fitness this year I've added more gym time and running. It seems to be about 2.5-3 hours a day, 4 days a week. The other 3 days are 2 runs and one day off.

Work, gym, sleep. I also stretch more than before and my body bitches and complains more than before too! I decided against committing to a 31 mile run this year and will just see how things play out and keep working on balancing all of my activities.

At the cabin I manage plenty of sleep, not so much at the city house. It's amazing how much noise I hear when I'm not in the mountains. Today we hung out at the cabin together, french toast to start the day was perfect. It was an amazing blue sky day with a little breeze to put the temperature around 12 with wind chill. What do I do when it's SO warm out?


Looking home from the gas station

The road up to a fellow bloggers property

Looking back home again
 The sun was on my back the entire run and somebody was kind enough to pick me up an hour later. I didn't make it to the gas station but we wanted to get the local papers and see what horrific crimes and/or tales of right vs. left they were printing.
One paper is right wing and complains about the government and yet applauds law enforcement when they take down a marijuana grow or do anything in favor of what they think is right/correct. The other paper is left wing and complains about guns, the other paper and generally anything not socialist/fair. Both are lame and can't see nor write about what is really happening from a neutral perspective but it's all yesterdays news anyhow (or the last week really). It keeps the basket next to the fireplace stocked and it does provide us with local contractors if we need work done.

Spaghetti and sugar cookies was a hit for lunch and dinner but now it's dark outside.
The woodbox is full, I'm warm and by myself (somebody hates getting up early on a workday) and am patiently awaiting the amazing milky way display soon to unfold. This is how 2016 is supposed to be, and its great so far.


  1. Maybe 2016 will keep panning out for you.

    1. That would be great. We hope you are staying warm up on your mountain, we've got some 50 degree weather here for a few days.
