I live a pretty busy life, always on the go, never really sitting down for meals, eating in my car (gasp), realizing at the most inopportune moments that I need gas. Realizing that one ingredient I need for dinner is missing or I find out just as I’m about to make homemade salsa that the cilantro is gross because I forget to put it in a ‘green’ bag so then that’s that… I can tell you all the things that I do, however I won’t bore you, and I won’t tell you all the things I mess up all the time (yucky cilantro is the least of my worries some days). I keep going and going trying my best to keep things going the best I can, trying to remember all time that God really does have control over everything.
We are in Traverse City for a couple days. We came up yesterday so we could really have two full days of vacation (we leave Tuesday).
This morning I got up at 7, though I wanted to go at 6:30 but couldn’t get moving until 7. SHeesh, it is vacation afterall. I wanted to get a run in before the day started. So I did, I mapped out my route of 2.81 miles and ran it in 33ish minutes, tomorrow, I’m going for 4 miles. I got in the shower… ate breakfast… read my devotionals, we went to the store to get a few things and somehow it was 12:30…
Knowing that I was going on vacation I saved a book to read Pioneer Woman because she is after all Pat’s bff, & my new favorite place to find recipes. Stacy also said it was a good read. I think today while reading it under a tree laid out on towel listening to the water hit the shore behind me, I think I had embarked on paradise. I looked up from reading to a blue sky and a perfectly green tree and thought it might not get much better than this. I know that for some being on the water would mean wake boarding and surfing, but this woman needed a little decompression. I’ve read 133 pages out of 308 today, I am sure it will be done by mid-afternoon tomorrow.
Hello from Traverse City! Enjoy your next couple days, I know I will!
