There’s a lot (a LOT!) to criticize New Jersey about, but one thing is for sure, New Jersey certainly knows how to put on a SPRING! Maybe it was the unending winter, maybe it’s still the coolness in the air (and that we haven’t jumped to 80F yet), but this year’s spring is DELIGHTFUL.
Here’re some shots from this morning’s run:
Yep, I’m back to regular running. This morning was my “long” run of 4 miles. I’m only going out every other day until I get some of my endurance back, but today’s 4 miles felt pretty good (although at a silly-slow pace). Anyways, everywhere I looked, there were amazing colors–the pinks from the late blooming cherries, the purples from god only knows what that tree is, the white dogwoods, the red maples, the red azaleas… Pretty-freakin’-fantastic.
Those florals totally outshine these man-made ones:
The dark mushroom with white & yellow flowers will become Sencha. I think. Not sure yet. The brighter floral will either be Scout or another Sorbetto. Again, not sure yet. I’ve got to decide something by Tuesday–that’s when I’m taking a sewing tutorial at my LSS (local sewing store).
I’m looking forward to this week. I’ve already made another set of mason jar salads (a few different varieties for this week). I’ve got my sewing class, and I’m starting up again with my running coach–it was a drag to miss Bruges, and my Soldier Field 10M has morphed from a flat-out race to a more social training run. But that’s ok. Because I’ve got this on my docket now!
And I will be ready!
