Three Things Thursday

  1. Last night near the end of my run I was running past a house where someone was obviously smoking something…other than tobacco.  Wow, that was an assault on the lungs and it was not pleasant!!
  2. I had a 70 minute spin workout on my schedule today which I originally hoped to do outside.  I was outside at lunch with just a t-shirt and hoodie, no jacket.  By the time I left class (day two of First Aid) the temperature had dropped.  Wind gusts were up to 90 km/hr.  My car was shaking as I was sitting at stop lights the wind was so bad.  When I pulled into my garage big fluffy flakes of snow were falling.  I attempted to get mentally geared up for a trainer ride but I was eventually swayed by the promise of some delicious Hungarian goulash that my mom was cooking at my brother and sister-in-law’s place.  It is hard to ignore a rumbling tummy.
  3. At dinner I was sitting next to my 2.5 year old niece.  She picked her nose, looked at me, tried to give me her booger, and told me to put it in the garbage.  I was laughing so hard, but thankfully my mom (a.k.a. grandma) was the quick thinking one and took care of that little nugget of gold…  I think…

Yeah, I have a hard time ignoring the rumblings in my tummy ... I would have skipped the trainer ride for some good food as well.

LOL about the booger. Kids are too cute!

Yea, I like to stop in the middle of my runs sometimes for a little mary-j-wana :-)

Um, EW. (clearly about the booger) I've love to have a picture of the look on my face if that happened to me.

Haha, kids! Love the little story about your niece. At least she didn't wipe it on you!

Let's see, next week, maybe try running to that house for a hit of some wacky tabbacky, THEN the 90km/hour wind won't bother you, and neither will any stray boogies!! Hee-hee!!!! :) :)

This weather BLOWS!!! (I am so darned punny, eh? LOL!!)

I hate the smell of people smoking stuff. Even outside I want to tell them to stop fouling the biosphere.

Your blog gave me a scare when it didn't load. At first I thought you'd followed LooseMoose into oblivion. Whew!
