"The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but they seize us."
Tuesdays I only work evenings, so here is how my morning went. I ate a banana and I was out the door for my 6K tempo run at 8am (early for me). It was beautiful out. The sun was shining, but it was not yet too warm. Perfect! What an enjoyable run. My 10.02min/mile pace was a bit fast for my program, but I felt great. I got back and enjoyed a nice big breakfast. I then changed and headed for the gym. Onto the treadmill I hopped for a 2K warm up run. It felt completely effortless. Off the treadmill and into the mirror room. I set up my step and start doing my jumps. I am alone in the room and the door is pretty much closed. "Don't speak" by No Doubt is playing on my ipod. I was feeling it :) ...I may even have been dancing a few times as I was walking to my step after a jump and definitely moving my lips (I don't think I was actually singing). Next, head to the other room to do the rest of my workout (lots of people, no dancing, look of concentration on my face, lips may have been moving sometimes). End with a good stretch and head home. Happiness seized me this morning...more than once.
Food basket update:
I got the information for the vegetable basket. All 20 weeks must be paid in advance...it's pretty expensive considering we may not be home some weeks. But it turns out this same organic farm sets up a Farmers Market very close to our house every Saturday morning. How cool is that! So we'll be visiting the market weekly.
Note to my son K, who commented on my last post:
Don't worry...I didn't say this year...but hopefully, in 10 years, I'll be a proud and involved grandparent ;)
Did happiness seize you today?
