Race Day!

I entered the Austin 10/20 today—10 miles, 20 bands. I didn't think I could run the whole thing, so my friends and I walked. 
My bib...

The starting line.

The bluebonnets were out!

The finish line!

My Treat Tonight

Casa Shoehead is back in effect!

I recently moved to a new place in North Austin, after almost two years in Georgetown. It was quite a stressful move, and I'm happy I can settle down and relax. I put up my "banner" yesterday. ����

Banana Muffins and Joe Walsh

Today is cold and rainy in Austin TX. I had a stressful dream that woke me up at 0630 and I couldn't get back to sleep. I decided that banana muffins would be the remedy. As I pulled them out of the oven, Joe Walsh came on the radio reminding me "Life's been good to me so far..."  I realized God was speaking to me. Even though I don't have a Maserati that does 185, I do have a lot more than a lot of other people. 
So, today I'm thankful for everything I have, including these $1.29 package banana muffins, and the fact that I can enjoy them with a nice cup of coffee; warm and dry in my own place with my two beautiful dogs. (They were pretty darn good muffins, too!)

Happy March, everybody!

This is how I started my day, and therefore, my March. I must say, we're off to a good start.  ��

Bean soup!

I made another soup for the cold weather. It came out decent. I panicked and added some extra water, because I thought I had too many beans. Now the soup is a bit thin and watery. I should've stuck with my instincts—two quarts, no more.

Having a great day!

Good morning, Bocce!

Bocce peeking out from his blanket. Get up, Bocce!

Blue Hole is quite full after the storm

Normally, the water level us 2-3 inches below the dam, and it can be crossed without getting your shoes wet. The waterfall on the side is about three times larger than normal. It looked quite impressive!

Haircut selfie!

My hair looks darker in the after, but that might just be the product she put in it. Though, my before does have a Clooney-esque quality to it, I think...

Happy Friday!
