indulging the list fetish

1. so boxer shorts? were totally invented for mid-july. the great thing about being a stay-at-home-mum is that you can muck about in boxer shorts and a t-shirt, and nobody looks at you weird.

except for if you go to the store. in that case, go with the jeans.

2. lately i've been reminded how much i love morning, when the world is still sleepy and fresh. i've been running again, and when i trek out early enough, it's this big expanse of quiet, and i get to talk to God, and the whole thing is all-out incredible.

3. in case you need to know how far you're running, mapmyrun.com is pretty nifty. and validating. and better than chocolate.

4. speaking of which, homemade chocolate cake + butter cream icing = bliss on a plate.

5. i love these crazy guys. (and the lens flare was totally unintentional, but i kinda like how the overall effect seems somehow sunnier.)















happy monday. :)

Wow...I almost want to run suddenly. I think I'll focus in on the chocolate cake list item instead...

Girl... how did you know that I needed "mapmyrun" (or bike if it's that kind of morning).
The still of morning is the best - I knew I liked you!
Out there in the cool and the mist, it's just me and God and the trail.
(and now you!)
I love that in some wacky universe, we're running together, quietly solving the whole world's problems ;)

I love your photos and your list. I had a bird relieve himself on my hand yesterday while I was running and accidentally kicked a chipmunk the day before! If you find a website that can help me run around these obstacles let me know! Be ware yourself!

Darling pictures! I need to wake up earlier to do my runs. Trying to fit them in at 7 or 8pm when it's getting dark just isn't working for me.
