  • I keep hoping for thunderstorms. I want to see torrents of cool rain pouring from the sky. Hasn't happened yet! Some cool dry air from Canada is supposed to push in here tonight. Thank you, Canada! Send it right now!

      • We had one, all of about 10 minutes. But they're still calling for cooler, dryer air tomorrow. It's really remarkable, I've been inside as much as I am in January.

        • It is cooler here, and definitely drier. No rain, though. The heat and humidity have left their mark, though, everywhere smells mouldy. My front closet - church - the garage. Yuck. I have spent almost all my time since finishing work Friday morning practically barricaded in my home! But I can get outside today. Hope you got in some tennis or a nice walk or something of the sort.

          • Here too, but not by too much. But I did get out to play tennis and then brunch with friends. We went over to their house and they made pancakes, which I politely declined, but did enjoy some wonderful organic walnuts and outstanding coffee. They are really nice folks, (our kids go to school together and take tennis lessons together).

            Being more social is on my list of things to make my life better. Turns out several of the parents of friends of Boy play tennis, so it will be a way to get to play more. :-)

            • Social things are definitely a weak spot with me, despite the fact that from my journal it looks at though I have a good social life. I do in many ways, however, deep down a little voice is saying, "L'Enfer, c'est les autres." Well, isn't that a dark statement for a sunny and beautiful Sunday afternoon!

                  • In my theatrical past, I designed sets and lights for a production of "No Exit" and really loved the show. It was a remarkably talented bunch. I was dating the director who was (is) a brilliant Woman. Seems a lifetime ago.

                    • So every so often, I punch my food totals into fit day to see if I am keeping to my calorie totals and macro breakdown. Today was a light day for me. I won't detail everything I ate, but it came just under 2000 calories. I was surprised by this, because it didn't seem like a whole lot of food.

                      The big items were fats, I cook in butter, coconut oil and evo, these rack up calories quickly and I put light cream in coffee and iced coffee and that adds up too. Nearly half of all my calories were from fat (there was an avocado too, and walnuts). So I was over in the fats, under in the protein and about 70 grams of carbohydrate. All in all not bad, but I was surprised at how many calories it totaled.

                      • So SWMBO has left for Orlando for the week, so I am Mom and Dad. The morning went well and Boy was successfully shipped off to camp, hopefully with the necessities of life with him.

                        Mondays are a weird day for me with the workout schedule, like an extra day off. I would've liked to take a long walk this AM, but instead, was support staff for SWMBO's early departure.

                        Oh, well, after yesterday's tennis, I am a bit stiff and sore. It's funny, but I am constantly stiff and sore! I think that as I get in better shape I push myself harder, which I guess is good, but I hope that eventually my fitness level will allow me sufficient activity without the pain and soreness.

                        • Happy to report that Boy and I are both alive and well more than 24 hours after SWMBO left. Tonight will be a bit rushed, leave work early to pick Boy up from camp, race over to my workout (Boy looks forward to coming with me) then a quick wash-up and off to Chinese food, which is a tradition for he and I. Whenever SWMBO is gone, we get Chinese food and eat at the restaurant. He is very excited. It's fun.

                          I am also happy to report that as of this morning, nothing really hurts on my body! I'm certain that tonight's workout will fix that, but for one day, at least, I feel good and pain-free! It feels like progress.

                          • Do you have a regular play date with Boy? You should! He is at such a fun age.

                            Maybe tonight's workout will surprise you -

                            • Boy and I are having more play time together. One of the driving forces behind getting me into shape is so I can play more with him. All during little league we threw a baseball any evening when he didn't have practice. Lately we have been playing tennis, and paddle ball (racquets, not much bigger than pin-pong paddles, made of plywood with a small, not especially bouncy rubber ball). We've been having a lot of fun.

                              The one thing we haven't been doing much lately during my workout is anything involving all-out running. My transition into the barefoot shoes is to blame. I hurt my feet in transitioning too quickly (on my own) and they've been slow to heal. But they are getting better and we've been working on changing my stride gradually to avoid landing on my heels.

                              So that will likely be what hurts tonight! And tomorrow!

                              • Speaking of Boy, who will turn 8 in a few weeks... SWMBO is away this week and so I have been taxiing him around to his things and he's been accompanying me to some of mine. This morning I brought him to the bus stop where he picks up the bus to go to day camp. I let him bring his iPad (my old one) and play while we wait. The bus is often late, so we have time there. This morning I was listening to the Morning Classics program on WMNR, a local public radio station. They were playing some classical piece. Boy looked up from his game and said, "Daddy, why is it that sometimes my eyes fill with tears when I hear classical music?" I looked at him and sure enough, he was all teary-eyed! :-)

                                I told him I wasn't exactly sure, but it happens to me too. He smiled and went back to his game.
