What a difference twenty-four hours can make! After yesterday’s drizzle-fest, today was all golden and sunshiney, with temps in the high 60s/low 70s. I went for a run and it was great.
I did a new twist on my Blossom Street/Memorial Park/home loop today, going up to Post Oak instead and coming back on Woodway. This took me under the 610 loop, where they have finally paved over the sea of mud that was left from all the construction. The result is nice, with paving stones, sidewalk and concrete. This will make some of my routes much easier.
Post Oak was nice too, since that’s where the police department stables are. A lot of horses were hanging out at the fence and I stopped to visit with them.
And on the way home, there was a wisp of a moon in the blue mid-day sky. I've read that a daytime moon used to be called a “children’s moon,” back in the days when most children had actual bedtimes and wouldn’t get to do much moon-gazing. It was pretty cool running under both the sun and the moon!
My one annoyance with today was that Central Market is still out of my favorite pita chips. This makes two weeks, folks, what’s up with that just-in-time delivery model, hm? I hope I’m not suffering from Geek Girl Syndrome where once I find something I like, it gets discontinued! But they had my favorite sandwich available again (mozarella, tomato and basil) after it being unavailable for three weeks, so maybe there's hope after all.
