Spring is trying to make its way to northern Wisconsin, so I wasn't about to complain when I saw this as my hourly forecast this AM, knowing all too well that I had a plan to run 18 miles.
And in all actuality... the weather was quite nice! By mile 4, the rain stopped, and it was a very comfortable temperature outside.
Really not trying or meaning to boast here... but I am amazed with my own progress and dedication to running these past couple of months!!! In March alone, I've run just a hair short of my years 2009+2010+2012 TOGETHER. Yes, YEARLY totals together!!!!! ALMOST beat just in one month!!! With one more day left in March, I may just set out to make that a record. We'll see how my legs are feeling tomorrow after today's 17.3 miles :)
The afternoon was family-time of egg coloring. This is the first year that I used food-coloring as the egg dye, rather than those Paas kits. Couldn't even tell the difference :)
Recipe: about a cup of water, a tsp of vinegar, and enough drops of food coloring to create a pleasing hue. Easy-peasy.
Precious patience, right??!!?!??
And another precious pic - Snaggle-tooth here! Thank goodness corn-on-the-cob isn't in season yet. Lol.
We only had Friday off for our Easter/Spring vacation. :( Yeah, big sad face here. So many of us (teachers and students alike) could really use a few days away from each other. Patience is beginning to wear thin for everyone.
Most days, the girls ride the bus home after school, but when they need to visit my classroom after school, they usually enjoy grabbing the colored pencils and computer paper. They waited patiently the other day for me to finish up some tasks before we were able to 'get outta there.' :)
And just last night, I updated my iCal with my running events, so I counted the weeks until the marathon: SEVEN!
But what made my jaw drop even more......
that means EIGHT more weeks until Graduation!
and Nine-n-half weeks until school is over for the rest of us.
Suddenly, time seems to be flying by again.
Happy Saturday. And have a blessed Easter tomorrow.
