Sunday Morning

I just got home from the 6:30 meeting and then breakfast with some of the women. It was nice. I was chatting with my friend Lee Ann who has recently celebrated a year of sobriety. She was considering registering for Ride the Rockies next year. I got all excited and told her she could definitely do it, and I am thinking about doing it too! Oh my. This would be a stretch. It is a week long bike ride through the mountains of Colorado. I mean, really, really, the mountains - pedaling your own self up and down the mountainous passes.

I am tired today. I had a huge day yesterday and I am beat. I am going to mow the lawn now and then probably take a nice nap. I have no plans for today which is wonderful. I might take a bike ride later on.

Oh, and Lash asked what a tri-suit is, briefly, it is a suit that you use for a triathlon - swimming, riding a bike, and running. There is no place to change your clothes between the three events, so you just wear one thing. I had a link to Danskin to show you what a tri-suit looks like, but I removed it because it had an e-bates pop up - and I HATE THAT!

THanks, AA. I just found your blog and I love what you have to say.

"Sunday morning, Coming Down"--anyone besides me old enough to remember that great Kris Kristofferson song or its cover by Johnny Cash? It's Sunday morning as well here in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. My husband and his brother are out riding motorcycles (safely and sedately) and I'm just here watching my flowers grow. Why, before I got sober and worked the 12 Steps, did I feel I had to be always doing something? My attitude now is what's wrong with a little "being" every now and then? As long as the mortgage is paid and the cats are fed, of course...

It sounds like you have a serene day ahead of you.

I love the smell of a fresh cut lawn, it reminds me of elementary school, a safe place.

You are inspiration with all the spiritual work you do and all the physical work you do!

No mountains for me. I don't even like riding my bicycle up 2 flights of stairs at home.

MC, enjoy your nap and serene Sunday.

gratitude is: never having to worry about changing during a triathalon! :-)
