|An Egg Still Life-he he|
The good thing is that the weather for Sunday looks perfect. C-Joy and I won't be walking in the rain or freezing our tushies off in Des Moines. I received my latest email from the marathon people, and geez, with all the last minute people signing up for the race, they have run out of medals. And golly--those people who finish later in the half-marathon may get "some kind of medal" at the finish line, and their actual medal will be sent to them later. These medals come from China, and it takes two weeks to reach the shores of Iowa. C-Joy and I will have to kick it into gear! My leg has been aching a bit the last few days, and I think it was from some over-exertion at work. I'm planning a long walk and a bike ride this week, and finally will make it down to the Y for the first time in 6 weeks. I feel horribly guilty--like it's a friend I've ignored for the funny one that smells like chocolate and drinks red wine. I must go to the Y! What I'll do when I get there--who the hell knows? I hope they let me in the doors.
Tomorrow is yard day one--Friday is yard day two. Should have everything cut down by then. Ah, just in time to start dealing with the leaves that are falling like a bad case of dandruff from the trees lining my street. Really--are there so many leaves on a tree? Meanwhile, the lone tree in my backyard is still full of green leaves with nary a twitch of the branches. They fall in the middle of November, and all at once--a leaf blizzard. Mother Nature can be a real pisser sometimes!
