Thanks you so much. We have both had such a busy summer. Today is the first real Fall feeling day an I am reveling in the wind blustering through the pines. I really am ready to nest soon and maybe we can get caught up. hugs
Thanks for the congrats! Busy x 4 here too. After two back to back long road trips we are glad to be back home. Have a 4 day one coming up end of Aug. Then a dear friend from WA visitng for 5 days. So many fires around here and so dry they have banned all open brning of any kind, even in approved camp site fire rings. They;re trying to get through the rest of this very bad fire season.
Thanks so much for all the congrats! The number of adoptions is wonderful. Kittens present so well for adoptions - so hard to resist them. Didn't know you were doing a half marathon! Is this for a cause of some kind and when is it? What kind of training are you doing? You go girl! Leaving again Wed but that is the last long trip of the summer.
Ten adoptions is very cool. I love the fact that there were two adults in that mix. Those of us who are somewhat past our maximum cuteness need love too. You've got lots of time to ramp up. When I ran my half marathon I made the decision in August and ran it at the end of October. I'd had a good consistent base of just over five miles a day for a number of months prior to making the decision though. As I recall I made the dailies just a tad longer but started designating my Saturday run as my "long run" for the week. I never went beyond eleven miles in my training but had no trouble on race day. In fact, I still had plenty in the tank at the end of the race and could have easily done a couple more. Those days are behind me though now. I'm still kinda surprised that I did it because I never considered myself a "runner". In truth you had to time me with a calendar for the race so I never really achieved runner status anyway. LOL
Wow, that's great. 8 more into a forever home! Yeah, it is kitten season right now eerywhere and I hope they all find hoes So hard to resist their kyootness. We are doing great. Heading out on a road trip tomorrow am with the RV down to the Trinity Shasta area to camp with some of Bryans HS buds. then home for 3 days and off on another RV trip with son ad gkid to a 4 day reggae festival in Cali and then up and over the Oregon Coast. The kids are so looking forwar to surfing, boogie boarding and beach time. I may have to ust off my wet suit and try some boogie boarding again. Bryan promised he would pick me up off the sand when I crah and burn LOL No I have not, they may be in Engla or Italy or somewhere. I;ll ait until fall to see if I can hoook up with her by email or phone. Want to hae a goo dlong natter with you too after these trips. After those e just have some short trips andhopeflly a very dear friend rom WA visiting us in Sep. Is your house all squared away now.
Eight adoptions is awesome. Eight happy homes and happy kittehs. I can understand the desire to bring a bunch home with you. They're all so cute, I'm sure. If Becky had her way we'd do beach trips every day that ends in Y. They are fun but they do take a bit of effort. I've let the back lawn go California brown as a result of the drought. Now I wish I hadn't. Becky walks so gingerly on those blades of grass now. I can tell it's not comfortable for her paws. She's still very content to flop down in the middle of it and chew her ball though.
Thanks! How are adoptions going? We helped a coupleof times at Petsmart and it was so wonderful when cat and adopter made a math. Our next volunteer eperience may be at a Low cost spay and neuter cllinc and they are heavily into TNR which I am a great believer in. They hae asked us to volunteer (they know of our experiene one of their vets also tried to help and were also rejected
That's three kitteh lives changed forever...not a bad thing at all. Rock n Roll Marathons are always festive events. you should go for it. You've got plenty of time to ramp up your mileage a bit. You wouldn't have to get up to 13 before the event. The adrenaline and excitement would carry you through if you were doing ten or so with any regularity. Heck, you could probably do it now but there's no guarantee how happy you might be the next day....satisfied but sore.
