A Winter's Morning

I passed by the park on my way home from grocery shopping - the sun was shining, spreading a false sense of warmth on the golden, wintered landscape. Yet I knew the reality - I had already rationalized away my morning run, citing a negative 10 degF wind chill was just too cold for me to deal with.

A half mile down the road, I decided to turn around and found myself taking a 30 minute detour from my heavily scheduled Sunday.

From Here to There

Wandering

It was the right decision and 30 minutes well spent.

Speaking about decisions, my daughter received her acceptance notification at the University of Illinois on Friday (she got in!). In order to make a more informed decision, we will be making a trip to the University of Kentucky in a few weeks. I also went ahead and entered the NYC Marathon Lottery. I place my fate in the hands of the automated system that will pick the entrants on March 3.

Hope you are staying warm this cold Tuesday morning!

Congratulations to your daughter on getting this place, I hope that she has some more offers if she wants them. Good luck too in the marathon lottery. xx

Beautiful scenery and congratulations on your daughter's acceptance. UK is very popular among the local high school grads these days. My niece (from Charleston) as well as a couple of girls from down the street are going there and like it very much.

That first photo is absolutely gorgeous. Congrats to your daughter! I'm not sure where the university is, but when my husband and I were in Kentucky a few years ago we visited the Old Friends Farm, a farm for retired thoroughbred horses (http://www.oldfriendsequine.org/) Since your daughter likes horses, you may want to visit there if it's close and you haven't been to it yet. Oh, and yay for the NYC marathon lottery!

Fabulous light on those grasses. I'm glad your daughter has a full range of colleges from which to choose. It's an exciting time for your family. I like to think of you running, Shirley - all those years I ran are special to me now.
