Wow!  It’s been almost a year since I’ve posted anything.  I knew it had been a long time, but that just doesn’t seem possible.  Everything is okay, I just got bogged down with work and everyday things. I’m not working right now, so you would think I would have all the time in the world, but I don’t.  I still feel like I have so many things to do that I’ll never get caught up.

I find I put off blogging because my internet service is very slow and sometimes sporadic, so it can take a lot of time to upload photos. There is talk that the electric company will start providing broadband soon, or at least they are looking into it.  If they do, I hope it’s faster than what I am getting now with the  phone company.  I don’t have cable, so that isn’t an option.  I even tried to get satellite internet, but they came out and said there are too many trees around so I can’t get a clear line of site to their satellite.

In January, I signed up the the Air Force Half Marathon.  It is supposed to take place on September 19th.  I hope things have opened back up by then.  I’m doing okay with my training. One day last week I decided to try running the path that Tippy and I walk on in the neighbor’s field.  It was a nice, slow run and a lot more fun that doing laps on my driveway. Here are a couple of pictures of the area.

Tippy ran with me the first lap, but I didn’t see her again until I was finished.  This is what I saw when I came through the fence.

One happy dog.

Our neighbor had a cow die.  He didn’t bury it quite deep enough, so something dug it up and left this bone behind.  She has had several others over the last couple of weeks.  She enjoys them and they are keeping her teeth clean.

That’s it for now.  I have a couple of funny things that have happened over the past year that I will post about soon.

Tippy and I hope you are all staying safe and healthy and have a great rest of the day!

  1. Vicky! It is so good to see you again. I knew it had been awhile since you and Tippy posted……glad you are both doing well. A half marathon–I commend you. The longest race I ever did was a 15K. One time. 🙂 The camaraderie is great, though, so I hope it’s a fun face. You are maintaining through all of this? Who could ever have imagined….. Anyhow, happy to see you back again. You and Tippy take care.

    1. Thank you! I am doing okay through all of this. I asked to not substitute at the daycare unless they were desperate until things settle down. I don’t want to bring anything home to my mom and dad. Tippy has been enjoying me being home. I don’t think she will be happy when I start working again.

  2. Welcome back! Internet speed is an issue even in cities where it’s supposed to be great (mine slows down whenever there are a gajillion users online-sigh). Congrats on your marathon training-good luck. I’m sure I’d be a couple of a blocks in and need to call a cab. Good luck!

    1. Thanks. As for the half marathon training, I have plenty of time to get ready. I started training in January. Plans are usually for 12 to 16 weeks. So I have plenty of time to repeat weeks that seem to be too hard. I don’t think 12 weeks would be enough time for me to get ready either physically or mentally. LOL

  3. My standing joke is that I went running once and met new people, 1 nurse, 2 paramedics and an ambulance driver. Although I have to say that I really like the area you run in, fields of grass and trees. Even now, I cannot watch a complete program without it freezing several times. I sometimes think I was better off when we had Dial-up. Not really impressed with this broadband. Stay well and safe.
