Just a quick post to mark the end of summer, and to say hello. I’m having fun with our visiting family person. We’ve been biking and hiking, talking and laughing, and generally having a great time, enjoying each other’s company. I’ll be back with something more substantial on Sunday. I will be ending my yoga challenge tomorrow and starting my meditation challenge on Sunday.
I hope you’ve had the time and opportunity to get out and enjoy this last day of summer. We had a surprisingly nice day. Surprising because they had been predicting rain. The rain did arrive a little while ago, but we got to spend most of the day outdoors before that happened and there was plenty of sunshine to go around.
Catch up with you soon!
Two days after The Color Run, and I’m still washing off color. That’s because I made sure I got well and truly colored. The color I’m dealing with today is all over the stuff I unpacked this morning, things I wore and/or had with me while walking The Color Run. There is so much color to deal with because I figured I might as well go all-in. You don’t have to. If you prefer not to get too much color, stick to the middle. You’ll probably get some color, but not a lot unless the volunteers spreading the colorful cheer are very vigorous and enthusiastic in their duties.
The Color Run was a blast. It was so much fun I’d love to do it again someday, hopefully with one of my grandchildren. Oh heck, I’d like the whole family to come along! And all of my friends! If you ever get the opportunity to participate in one, do it. Don’t think twice about it. Just do it. You don’t have to be a runner. Many of the people participating were not running at all. Some were walking. A few were skipping or dancing occasionally (especially at or near the finish line). More than a few were rolling on the ground, but that was just at the color stations. I’m pretty sure they didn’t roll the entire 5k.
I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I’m bringing out my girly side today. I am not a girly-girl most of the time, but every now and then I surprise myself (and others) with the part of myself that loves pedicures, pretty clothes, and the color pink. The unnatural pinkness of the above photo is courtesy of Pixlr. Working with a point & shoot camera, I don’t have the option of using filters so this is the next best thing as far as I’m concerned.
Yesterday M and I went up to Cleveland to visit with friends who recently moved up that way into a lovely condo overlooking Lake Erie. We had a great time which, unfortunately, was shortened a bit this morning due to illness. I’m not feeling too well.
It is another beautiful day here in the Bogs. Sunny with autumn-like temperatures. Perfect hiking and/or biking weather. But there was work to be done around Breezy Acres so the only hiking I managed today was around the pond.
