Random Tuesday Ramblings

Let's try a list, it'll be easier to read and since I'm all over today, give some structure to my unstructured thoughts.

1. I forgot how incredibly high-maintenance my extended family is! I love 'em to bits, but they are exhausting to be around.

2. My Auntie Mom is an amazing woman. She did the eulogy at my dad's funeral and at her dad's on Saturday. On Sunday she did the sermon at church, then led a workshop on how to make prayer shawls. Her strength and faith are a constant wonder and inspiration to me.

3. I still cry whenever I hear "The Farmer's Song" by Murray Mclaughlin. Not just a tear in the eye, but full on sobbing cry. It's not pretty. But it describes both my dad and Grandpa Jack to a T.

4. I don't like driving in fog. Especially for 5 hours, the last three in the dark.

5. I had lunch with S. on Sunday. Mostly 'cause I just needed a hug. And a good Indian buffet. =P

6. I hibernated for the rest of the weekend and spoke to no one but my mom. I'm ok with that.

7. Yoga Teacher Training started last night! I've got tonnes of homework already, but I can't wait to get to it. We have a group of 11, and one of the girls I met this summer at Folk Fest (she's friends with my friend, Amanda). Small world!

8. It was tough to drag my ass outta bed to be at work for 6 this morning. Thank goodness I'm off on Thursday.

9. I ran into (literally!) my friend I. as I was heading back from my run this afternoon.

10. Just got off the phone with J., who I haven't talked to since the end of December and haven't seen since...well, it's been awhile. Saturday dinner date planned.

11. Running on a treadmill sucks, but I did it on Saturday. Today's run wasn't the greatest, but I'm glad I got out there. 5.48K, 42 and change minutes, 457 calories.

12. I can't cook small. Seriously. I made a fruit crisp in my turkey roaster because I wanted to use up some saskatoons, apples and strawberries I found in the freezer. It's yummy, but VERY big! In my defense, I cooked for 10 for a very, very, very long time. I don't know how to do single servings!

13. The End.
