Waking up happy. I love it when this happens. I am going to take a very early morning run (once it gets slightly light outside) and then head to church. Then I am meeting a sponsee to do her 2nd step. It should be a very nice day.
Yesterday I went for an 800 meter swim, followed by a 12.4 mile bike ride, on hills, in the heat. It was glorious! I am thinking of registering for an extra triathon that is next weekend. So, I will have the tri on August 5, as well as the one next weekend. We shall see if I actually do it, but I know I am capable of it - and that is a nice feeling.
Last night was nightwatch. It was held at the mountain home of one of our members. It was 100 degrees in the city, and 68 degrees at his house! It was marvelous. We sat on his deck, and looked at the mountains and ate gobs of food. Someone at the deal said that we alcoholics "eat good food," I disagreed and said that we "eat happy food." Bratwurst, chips, scalloped potatoes, pasta salads, and cakes, cookies, candy, and of course, one Mary Christine Homebaked Blueberry Pie! I like to think that the calories consumed at an AA function don't really count - it is a spiritual event and not really physical at all.... sure... I like it.
