I woke up as Jenny was getting ready to go for her run, but I was wide awake. I used to be able to go back to sleep and laze around a little bit before the kids started telling me to get up.
I kind of wanted to go for a run but thought better of it since I ran 21 miles yesterday. I felt great and don't feel sore at all today but still didn't want to push my luck.
So, I took Sammy out for a walk as the sun was coming up. He didn't want to walk very far because he was concerned about his "sister" Barbie who did not finish all of her food. They both act kind of funny when there is a partially filled bowl of food sitting around!
It was also nice to go for a walk as the sun was coming up to see the sky changing from dark to light and see some interesting swirly clouds. This past week I was talking with two of my running friends as we were finishing up and it had just gotten light. We all agreed that one of the best parts about running in the morning and having to get up early is the sunrises, they go a long way to making getting out of bed easier.
Ok, now I'm going to make pumpkin waffles to celebrate fall. I stopped by the store on the way home from work on Friday to make sure we'd have the ingredients. There's not too many things that I know how to prepare, but I do love waffles!
D'OH!! out of sugar, so no waffles this morning. If I knew how to substitute better I would figure out how to replace the sugar with syrup or something that we have. Hmmm, syrup inside the waffles and then poured on it, sounds pretty good actually.
Later, we'll be going to the newly opened Legoland Florida with the whole family! Should be a fun time.
