We had a few days of extra warm weather between the monotony of a SW MO winter. Which is mostly cloudy, cold and wet. Not really cold enough to freeze the mud but not warm or sunny enough to be pleasant. We were supposed to have ice this week but luckily it all stayed just far enough north for Jerry to keep his appointment to her his hernia fixed on Friday.
Since then we have been hanging out at home while he recovers and planning vacations somewhere warmer and sunnier.
I've also been playing with photo apps on my phone.
It's not as if she needed any more fame, but Legend is now on an Easter card! A few years back she did a super cute spring/Easter photo shoot for a local photographer and some of the photos got picked up for a pack of Easter cards!
After a lovely chistmas at our house with family, we loaded up the car and the dogs and headed to the beach. We chose Jekyll island, Georgia but it's only a little over a days drive, very dog friendly, and not overly crowded. We really enjoyed our stay. Our hotel was right on the beach with an ocean view and we had decent weather most of the time. The island has lots of paved walking and biking trails, cute historic areas, and plenty of dog friendly beaches. The beaches were huge and uncrowded so Legend was ecstatic about all the off leash running and playing.

Lyric did not have as much fun as Legend did, but she sure looked cute.
Finally. At last. It took me several attempts but I did actually run 1000 miles in a year. This was admittedly harder than I expected. It doesn't sound so bad when you do the math but having a job, traveling, and having additional hobbies made this a constant battle to keep up. But, I did get to do my last two runs on the beach, with Jerry and Legend joining me for the last day. Can't beat that!
Just like that you're six years old and you take a nap and you wake up and you're twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife...
Ain't no rhyme or reason No complicated meaning Ain't no need to over think it Let go laughing Life don't go quite like you planned it We try so hard to understand it The irrefutable, indisputable fact is... It happens
