Crime Scene Photo

I made a teeny snowman on Sunday afternoon, but it turns out its life was very short.

I don't know who did it! But I have an idea it was Mr. Sunshine. (my very funny daughter did the chalk outlines and called me outside to see it.)

Today I am going to try developing a better habit for the mornings I run. I am going to get up at 4:00, do all my reading, prayer, coffee, blogging, making breakfast, etc., and THEN go out for a run as soon as it is light out. Perhaps then I can get my run in (which seems to be my priority) AND get to work on time (which SHOULD be my priority.)

I didn't go to work yesterday because of my "stomach issues". I stayed in bed all day long and read half a book. Then I went to the tanning salon and a 5:30 meeting. I was sick, but I think I mostly I needed some serious down-time.

We are having some wonderfully warm weather. It is wonderful to see things come out from under the snow. There is still plenty of snow, but it is melting. I am greatly looking forward to my run this morning, it is already 48 degrees outside at 5:00 a.m.

Wow! It was 40 deg at 5am here. That's different.
These first 3 comments are all from Houston. What's up with that?

Looks like your snowman has some stomach issues too.

it seems we have traded weather. Lol

You, my dear ...finally have some sun and warm air.
We finally had some normal Michigan winter weather – in the form of a blizzard that came sweeping in over the weekend.

It was a fair trade me thinks.

Enjoy the sun and downtime :)

RIP mr snowman
