Boot Camp Day 4

Yesterday was my one day a week off. I had kind of hoped to make it an on day but the gym was closed. I've planned my off days for Sunday, and I'll probably begin taking in the 3:00 p.m. total body class because it's fun and a kickass workout.

Got up early to walk the puppy and ran into the most incredible fat yellow moon hanging about a foot above the neighbor's house. It was pitch black out and frost had crisped the grass. I wasn't expecting to see a mid-summer country moon just around my corner. Little blessings everywhere.

Coming back to the house, I turned around from making coffee to find my very sedate old cat kissing the little deaf dog. Sweet little nose-touch kisses all over Betty's face while she held absolutely still. She was frozen in mid-step, her head cocked and her eyes closed while she allowed Mo's gentle touch. Amazing, and a sweet reminder to take life's pleasures where we find them.

I don't get up early. Maybe I need to. So far, 2007 is full of unexpected delights.

Off to the gym at 10. Drinking water is the order of the day.

That was beautifully written, and very much true. I saw that same moon this morning when I woke up, but I didn't give it the same regard you did. I'm going to be more careful about that from now on.
