Life has actually been quite colorful lately. Maybe too much so?
So it just feels right to just send out a quick update sans color.
For starters, I’ve turned over a new leaf.
I read very well while moving. Makes me think that my parents, teachers, and I would have all been more pleased with my reading ability and thus grades had I taken up treadmill reading at a much younger age. Typically I mess around on the iPad during treadmill runs, but I’ve found that a bungee cord and a book are an equally entertaining way to pass easy, therapy miles. Since 70-80% of my mileage is “therapy” then that leaves time for lots of reading. Sure, you have to scooch the bungee up or down to read some of the lines and take the book in hand to turn the page but those are small potatoes. It’s really been a fun change of pace, so to speak. But, you know you’re of a different era when you naturally reach up with one finger to “scroll” up to the next page of the “screen” instead of turning the page. That happens about once every mile.
I’m learning to read all over again.
As for Big Boy, well, his first words of each morning are no longer “Meow-Meow?” in search of his beloved two kitties. Now it’s “books?” Every morning he points to his bookshelf and wants to pick out a new book to pour over.
He must be rubbing off on me.
Still, he loves his kitties.
With all of the snow, playing outside is a new adventure.
It was exactly 2 degrees here but retreating to warmer climates indoors was no option. He needed to eat a bit more snow first. Next, he just needs to be a little handier with a shovel.
Thanks for bearing with me and the phone pictures. It’s the best I can do with the small amount of time I have to capture this life that is fleeting. Fleeting in a good way, but fleeting nonetheless.
How goes your treadmill running?
Ever tried reading on the treadmill?
