Yesterday I went to work with MacGyver and the most awesome thing happened….I didn’t want’ to kill him. I know. It was insane. But seriously, how can you have a bad work day with views like this:
Epic, isn’t it?
We were working in Vina Del Mar which is close to Pasadena in St. Petersburg. MacGyver replaced some sliding doors and a few panes of glass. My job was to bring tools and sweep up the dust. I swept a lot. I didn’t mind. Sadly, sweeping is fun to me. Yeah, I know, I’m that girl.
There was a white heron that followed me around the entire day. Imagine that, birds following me around, crazy, right?
After we finished the job MacGyver took me to lunch at a neat little restaurant on the water. The food was great but the scenery was spectacular.
The best part about working with MacGyver is that he doesn’t mind stopping at Garage Sales on the way to, and from work, which makes me pretty happy. Yesterday we scored the best papasan chair for Boomer and he obviously loves it because he slept in it all night long.
And now let me tell you about the best thing ever.
This morning was my scheduled day to go running again after a week off. I was a bit apprehensive because my hips are not at 100% but I also know that without tons of strength training they won’t be at 100% for a while. So, I decided to just go out really slow and play it by ear.
I scheduled 3 miles and I promised myself that I would be good to myself and not push it.
And that’s exactly what I did. I felt tight and any time I tried to lengthen my stride it felt a bit uncomfortable, so I kept it slow and easy. I won’t lie, I had to quiet my inner voice and tell myself not to push it and it was hard.
Isn’t it funny how you struggle with your head a bit more than your body at times?
Anyway, I ran 3.1 miles this morning. I ran slow but I was grateful to be able to run. It was the perfect way to start the day. And then most epic thing appeared in the sky afterwards and I wanted to share it with you:
What’s the best thing that happened to you this morning?
