It's not really wacky here, but it is a good word, it starts with a "W", and alliteration is a good way to start the daily.
What's Up? (There is another "W" word!)
I went to the park this morning for 3.7 very sweaty miles.
Dentist appointment coming up in a little over an hour. A filling on the right side of my mouth this week.
Friday morning is supposed to be in the 50's before a string of 90+ degree days. I think I will go ahead and fit in a longish run on Friday morning before work.
At the park where I run most days, there are roads open to the public. More than half the people I meet out walking and running are on the wrong side of the road with their backs to oncoming cars. It forces me to go around them since I run on the proper side of the road. But I was wondering, are people not taught anymore about the right & wrong ways to walk along a road? Maybe I need to write my congressman and ask for a multi-million dollar grant to prepare public service announcements and road signs to educate people.

But if they were on a bicycle, they would be facing traffic and thus STILL on the wrong side of the street.
Dave, it makes me crazy when I see runners on the roads with their backs to oncoming traffic. We live on a VERY busy road, and there are sidewalks, and people STILL run on the wrong side of the road-right out there with the crazy drivers! I understand not wanting to be pounding on the sidewalks, but don't be stupid!!
Or at night running in the road (when a sidewalk is right there) with no reflective clothing or lights. I want to yell at them... some runners are so stupid!!!

YES! So happy we can count ourselves amongst the "smarter" runners!! I may be a bit crazy, but I'm NOT stupid!!!

Decided to skip the run last night and spent time playing Legend of Zelda with Katy.
Probably a walk tonight.
The birds are wacky. The pooping robin is back attacking my car. I put my smelly running shoes out near it and he left. Score!
4 miles this morning. The humidity blew out and it is a great breezy morning. Still, I sweated like Rob's Airedale. (thus the smelly shoes)
Did a tough one hour yoga class yesterday and I hurt in lots of new places. Lee ran hills with our running friends. We are both hobbling around like old people. Old, happy people.

What is with the birds this morning?
Good morning Dave and all Masters!!! You are all so good!!!!!!
Lazy day for me enjoying so many good FB post of family pix. Check em out at FB=Julie Mattea

Good afternoon! I've decided to take a rest day from my usual walk/run today. I did just under 3.5 miles yesterday. I have a weird knot on the top of my foot (popped up yesterday sometime) and I haven't even tried to put on my running shoes. I've just spent a lazy, barefoot day in the house so far. Yeah, maybe I should try the shoes!
2018-06-13 12:12 PM
Nah let those toes spread out and be free!!!
My yoga teacher was showing me foot and toe exercises that are so hard (for me) but they make my toes feel awesome and she said to go barefoot as much as possible so I have been. And I've been wearing Altras that are similar to barefoot shoes--amazing!!! I took Monday off as a rest day (normally a run day) because I ran Friday-Saturday-Sunday and felt I was pushing the envelope a tad.
Listen to the body!!!
9.07 humid and sweaty miles this morning. But it was fun.
Weird, weary, wondering, waiting, windy... This is what's happening so far. It is wacky here this morning. I could not sleep at all last night, ended up falling asleep at 4 am. I've been dragging all day. Did my arm workout. Sat by the pool drinking coffee and saw a hummingbird. Never seen a hummingbird back there before so I hung one of the feeders out back. Then there is a Blue jay making this very odd sound. I've gone out a few times to see if there was a reason. I've heard them imitate the hawks before, but that's not the sound. This is eery sounding. I was googling it, but couldn't find the sound he (?) is making.
It's cloudy and windy, and every time I step outside it rains. Not a lot, just quick passing shower. But every time I step outside it happens. Weird!!!
Yesterday there was a garter snake in the pool. Did I post that? I can't remember? My cat was fascinated! When I showed C my video he thought she might be looking for a place to have babies..
This morning a baby chipmunk in the pool I hate that....
Trail run tonight @ 7 pm.
That's it for now...

The birds have been excessively loud around here the past few days!
We've got dozens of blue jays and have never had them before. They are indeed weird birds. Some mornings they sing "pee wee" until I could shoot them, other mornings they are screeching like an injured cat.

They are wacky today for sure. When I ran on the trail a few days ago one was imitating a hawk I was looking all over then I saw the bluejay. They did last summer by the pool. Strange bird!!!
I used to set out nuts for the squirrels from time to time when we lived in Michigan. If the blue jays saw them, they took all the nuts. The squirrels might get one for every 20 the blue jays took. They are aggressive suckers.
I might need to get some Michigan blue jays to starve out my squirrels.
They sit in my honey locust tree, pull off the small branches, lick the honey out, then drop them in the yard. All. Day. Long. I pick up a full can every day.
Then to change things up they sit on the roof and pick at the chimney flashing. Trying to hide food for the winter. I hate them. My husband shoots bottle rockets at them. It can get pretty entertaining.

>They sit in my honey locust tree, pull off the small branches, lick the honey out, then drop them in the yard. <
The squirrels in Michigan used to chew off and drop branches from our Cottonwood trees. I never understood why, but maybe they liked what was in those. They hit me with branches a couple times when I was out on the back patio.
My power walk was done this morning and then I joined the bulk mail volunteer team for a mailout. The sky is cloudy and rain is in the forecast. I really hope the forecasters are correct this time!
Our ac is wonky but the repairman is here and should be fixed. My husband thought it was a loose connector and apparently that might be the problem.
I really should do dust my study/office this afternoon. Now that I don't have HOA treasurer paperwork, it's much easier to toss stuff away. Plus the HOA laptop is no longer on my desk.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
