57 degrees this morning walk 35:12 minutes
A cool 57 degrees this morning, with an average wind of 16 miles per hour or so. Doesn’t sound like much until you are out in it and especially when you are walking against the wind on the top of a hill!
Pace was 23 seconds slower than my goal, not surprising with the wind.
Rather surprised to see a bunch of cars (and I assume a party) at a house along my walking route, which is unusual. I also heard some yells (I won’t speculate as to if they were drunken yells or just someone having a good time or both). It wasn’t at me and I don’t think the noise was bothering anyone else.
While I walk “early” it is still somewhat “late” for a party to still be in high gear, but time is relative!
On my previous routes (at other houses and neighborhoods) there always seemed to be one house that lived on a different time schedule than others!.
Of course, who am I to talk!
Sometimes (not during the school year or at least not on a school night) I have a text from my granddaughters, they haven’t been to bed yet and I’m up for the day (except for my beloved naps!)
The last day of March 2018! Time just flies by. I am glad it is flying towards Summer and not towards Winter!
It is strange how time has flown. I look back and see younger people and I want to tell them to do what they want to do with their lives because the time will pass.
Fortunately, I don’t really think of myself as “old”. I know it, and accept it, but what the heck, I am what I am!
I was thinking during my walk about eating meat. There is a cafe we frequently eat breakfast at on weekends, one of those “downhome” cafes where the servers are liking to call you “honey” and the food is normally very good, but also can vary!
We actually started eating there over 4 years ago before we even moved here. The cafe has the same nickname as my granddaughter and she got a kick out of eating at “her” cafe!
By chance, they also had gluten free pancakes, toast etc. (unusual for that time), so Aliene and I started eating there, especially when we moved here, since it was relatively close to where we lived.
Anyway, the cafe has a big picture of a cow looking mournfully at you. I normally sit where I kind of feel it is mournfully at me. There are also several pictures of roosters (actually a collage).
Anyway, I wonder if the cow looking so mournfully at me while I was eating had anything do do with stopping eating meat, at least temporarily!
Anyway, I will probably be observed by the mournfully looking cow staring at me this weekend, so, at least for today, I will not eat any meat!
That’s it for now, Saturday, March 31, 2018
