Don't know why, there's no sun up in the sky...

Hey hi!  I suck at this blogging thing don't I?  Like with most things, I hit it fast and hard at the beginning and I'm a total rockstar.  And then slowly but surely I tapper off into the sunset, never to be seen again.  I will not fail you, blog.  Not this time.  I know my family reads this too, so if nothing else that will keep me going.

A couple of things:

1. I started running again this week.  I said I would and I did.  It was great weather for it.  Overcast and cool.  I'd just loaded my phone with new songs and I was ready to go!  I ran 3 miles in about 40-45 minutes.  Nothing impressive by any means.  But I did it.  And I quickly learned it was too much too soon.  I should've eased.  I am currently walking around the house like a cowboy walking into a saloon.  John Wayne makes that walk look cool.  I, however, do not.  But I'm going to keep going.  Maybe slow down a bit, but I'm going to get in shape.  I'm going to be fit and healthy. 

The truth is, I really love this stuff.  It helps that I love fruits and veggies and I want to start eating better.

2.  I jumped on the hipster bandwagon and got an iPhone.  That's probably not fair.  EVERYONE who owns an iPhone is not a hipster.  But iPhone's come with a certain reputation.  However, when we found out we could switch cellphone providers and finally get cell service in the remote area where we live, we also found out we could get these snazzy phones for $50.  DEAL!  And, like all the rest of you iPhone rockin' dorks out there, I downloaded photo apps to play with.  I'm no photographer, but it is a pretty fun use of time.  Hey, who ever said there was anything wrong with stopping and taking a picture of something because you think it's beautiful, photographer or not?  My grandfather was a wonderful photographer and my mother recently got into photography as well.  So if nothing else, it's inherently enjoyable.

We took a walk today, down our pretty gravel road.  If I ever need a reminder of why I live out here in the middle of nowhere, I just step outside, walk down my road, and realize I live on a little piece of quiet heaven.

Spring is coming, like it or not.  You like it though, don't you...

Here's a little something because I like YOU and YOU and YOU...
