It’s been a great weekend!!! Yesterday we went for a hike (might post pics of that later) and enjoyed a nice lunch together. Then I went to my second FLYoga lesson (it’s where you do yoga while balancing on other people, mostly their feet). So much fun!!! Had a wonderful supper with friends and hung out a little after to let the kids play! Audrey was a very happy, very tired little girl last night. So far today I went for short run. The weather is beautiful!! Spotify didn’t work for me though which caused me to lose a little mojo. Hence the short run. Since then we’ve been on the back porch just soaking up the sun!!!! Wonderful, wonderful weekend!!!
I had one of those haunting dreams last night (thank you fried rice and sleep aid) that I know will be on my mind all day today.
I was fighting something but I was also watching myself fight. And just before I woke the thing I was fighting disappeared. I never got to really see it or even know why I was fighting.
Mama got her nails done! Felt so good to have some alone time! I also stopped at the Fair Trade store and got a super cute shirt on sale! Now to look forward to a relaxing afternoon and a yoga workshop tomorrow. Smiles!
I just ponied up and started paying for Spotify. This means I get my playlists all the time on my phone. I am SO freaking excited for my next run it is not even funny.
So we live relatively close to a bar. I mean, its Milwaukee don’t we all? Anyway, there’s this kid in the neighborhood that walks his dog like 24/7. All the time. He has a beautiful german shepherd for a dog, but the kid has zero manners. I don’t know if he’s shy, pissed off or just confused. But often while running he will refuse to acknowledge me when we cross paths, like once we get close he won’t look up from the ground at all. Which is fine, awkward but fine. The bigger deal is that I am forced to run off the sidewalk in order to get around him and his dog. That’s a little frustrating.
More than that though - this kid hovers around the patio of the bar near us. He does so to steal cigarette butts. I’ve watched him dig through the outside ash trays. Tonight as one of the owners finished his smoke (I’m not stalking, I was outside enjoying the evening with a glass of wine) and flicked his butt, the kid almost pounced. He had been waiting across the street from me with the dog and then bee-lined for the smoke, which was laying on the street at that point.
I just don’t get it. I mean, I know smokes are expensive. But is there really enough left on one out of the ash tray or street to make it worth it? When I used to smoke I would bum a drag from a friend, but never from someone I didn’t know. The idea of picking a used butt up off the street and sticking it in my mouth is so gross to me. Is there another use for them? Something I might be missing?
I kinda feel bad for the kid.
