Five Mile Morning

What a great day!

I went to a great AA meeting this morning where a man celebrated 5 years of continuous sobriety.

After that, I drove to a nice trail and ran 5 miles.  It was a dreary, overcast, drizzly morning.  This is very unusual weather for Colorado and it is nice for a change... but not on a regular basis.

I stopped at Barnes and Noble on the way home and bought myself a new copy of Atlas Shrugged.  Yeah, really.  

I came home and slept for 2 hours.  On a cold spring afternoon, it was pretty nice to just go to bed and sleep.  Next week I will take off the flannel sheets, but for now, I am glad they are still there.

When I woke up, I got dressed and ready and went to church.  

Came home, ate a steak and baked potato dinner.  Then I wrote for 2 hours.  

Now I am going to go to bed.  

This may not sound like a lot, but it is.  It is happy stuff.

Me too. Great day. I forget what I did, but I was busy all day. And, I didn't drink! Oh, yeah, got to take an old returnee to a couple meetings and breakfast.

Peace!

True confession: I've never read Atlas Shrugged - pretended I did, but never read it...

You're an inspiration to me...

Thank you...
