What a difference a week makes. It was really heartbreaking to see the U.S. lose to Canada in the Men’s Hockey Final, but at least it was a great game. You can’t say we didn’t try.
Yesterday was a brilliant day in Seattle though. The sun was shining. The temp was surely in the 60’s, and despite being depressed over the hockey I decided to get back into my exercise regime and go for a run. With getting sick and then traveling to Vancouver, I haven’t had much opportunity to exercise. Boy I was looking forward to it.
Then 2 blocks into my run, I tripped on some protruding cement in the pavement and landed very hard on my knee caps completing skinning one of them. It reminds me of being a kid really. Remember all of those cement playgrounds? I was always skinning my knees as kid, and I wasn’t the only one.
So I might have to delay running for another couple of days while the bruises heal. Another sign of spring was a big fat gray squirrel tearing up my newly planted garden. At first I thought he was eating my chard or spinach. But no. Must have been looking for a nut he may have planted last fall. He was persistent. After I chased him away, he came back. Who knows what I’ll find upon returning home today after work.
