Tuesdays are marvelous days. They don’t have the shock value of Mondays, nor do they have the pressure to get everything done that comes with a Friday. I rather enjoy Tuesdays and expected that this would be a fairly workaday and mundane sort of day.
Two things happened. Well, more than two things, really.
1. I had a lovely run along trails without a watch or any sort of a schedule. It was lovely to run and just pay attention to how I was feeling, which turned out to be surprisingly good. Since my recent battle with bronchitis, exertion has made me feel like an asthmatic in a dust storm. Today, I felt absolutely normal and that’s a real delight.
2. I saw several duck families while running. And one very unconcerned and active rat. (I like rats, when they’re not bothering anyone)
3. As I was leaving the gym and making my way downtown, I happened upon an older woman who did a face plant into the pavement. Helped her home and made a new friend in the bargain.
Finally, but most deliciously……
4. A brown box arrived in the mail today from Kelowna. It was very light-weight. It didn’t rattle.
Intrigued? I sure was!! More on this in the next entry!
