I could hear the wind as I locked the door. I walked down to the bottom of the steps. It was late. My plan is to go running at around 6:30 pm. It was 8:40 pm when I put on my shoes this evening. I wanted to go. Running is my thinking time and I had thoughts to think. I stopped at the bottom of the steps and looked at the tree branches waving in the 26 mph wind. I turned halfway around to walk back up the stairs. Instead of walking up the stairs, I tightened the hood on my jacket, put on my mittens, and set off. I ran about a mile and then decided to walk the rest of the way. It’s okay. On days like today, it only matters that I do something. I will balance it out with a long run some other day.
The alfalfa sprouts I started on Monday morning have been growing well. I was feeling discouraged last Saturday evening when I took apart the canister and saw the mold on the broccoli and the radish sprouts. My enthusiasm for the project has gone up again, though. The method I am using this week is simpler and I don’t think there will be any mold. I have been taking pictures every day. I will put them in a post when the sprouts are finished. They might be finished tomorrow.
Take care and thanks for reading.
PS. 3/31/2014: Yesterday’s project was cleaning the winter dirt off of my car. It was a warm 70 degrees and windy. In the evening, Mr. Bear and I decided to drive over to the parking lot of the water park to watch the sunset. The sun set quietly disappearing behind the clouds without a burst of color.
