The party Saturday was great. My friend is a really good singer and a great entertainer. I had a great time. Here’s a pic of me at the party, I love it because I’m smiling which I don’t often do when my photo is taken.
Yesterday we went to the forest. It was a beautiful Autumn day with lots and sunshine and we weren’t the only one who got the idea to go to the forest. Man it was busy. While R. stayed behind to chat with his motor buddies, I took Bella for a walk. I chose a trail that should be a 75 minute walk but either that was measured for really slow people or Bella and I were fast because we were back after 45 minutes. Here are some photo’s I took yesterday.
On November 21th I have a 15K race which includes 7 hills. Where I live there are no hills, not even bridges I can run up to. So I decided to go to the gym for today’s run instead of running outside and do a hills program and boy it was tough! I prefer running outside in strong wind, that’s a piece of cake compared to this. But I made it the whole 40 minutes although I did slow down sometimes to give my legs a bit of rest. My plan is to do this 2 more times before the race.

Daily summary Sunday October 17th:
As promised something different.
Watching: I’m hooked to a lot of shows on TV, we’re always behind with the shows aired in the USA. I tape everything on our harddisk recorder so I can fast forward the commercial breaks. Yesterday I watched: Desperate Housewives (season 6, 6 episodes to go till the season’s final) and two episodes of Two and a half men. This is on everyday in a rerun, we jumped in somewhere between season 5 and 6 and seen it till the final of season 7. Now they’ve started at season 1 again which we haven’t seen so we are watching that too.
Reading: During Summer I read a lot but don’t read that much anymore now. Want to do that more and this is kind of a reminder for me to read more. Yesterday I read “Foodies” a Dutch food magazine which I have a description to.
News of the day: I don’t watch the news, I don’t read much about it on the internet. I’m ashamed to say I only found out about the miners that were trapped the day they were rescued. This one is to tell you about news I’ve seen/read that interested, bothered, upset me or made me happy. Now I have to watch/read the news everyday to come up with something.
Shoes of the day: As you all know I’m addicted to shoes. Instead of the daily outfit it’s going to be the shoes of the day.
