Sunday: The Day of Rest

Things I've done today instead of running:

Reading: Women Who Run with the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. I'm one chapter in and wondering why it took me to long to pick this book up.

Cooking: A breakfast of honey-cured bacon, hash browns, kransky sausages, grilled tomatoes, eggs and sourdour bread. A lunch of the Moosewood Cookbook's minestrone, with some pastrami tossed through and a good dose of chilli. Unfortunately for Hamish I 'Pipped' the Minestrone!

Clearing out: Several superfluous household items that have been loitering in the spare room for too long. Listed on Trademe, and if they don't sell I will take them to the Salvation Army.

Wearing: My fabulous new Addidas running shoes. I doubt I'm going to take two months to break these in. They feel so light, flexible and comfy! I can't wait to run in them.

Walking: Around my neighbourhood this afternoon. I left in warm sunny weather, but the wind was blowing strongly from the South. By the time I made it home a storm was blowing in off the white-capped strait. As I brought the washing in from the veranda the wind blew the drying rack over.

Listening: To Media Watch on National Radio, the Americana Show and Roots and Culture on Radio Active, and the Greg Johnson CD I got free with my new running shoes.

I went orienteering today - left home in cloudy damp weather, got over the hill to Lyttelton harbour and found it gloriously sunny. Then just after I finished my course, the skies turned dark, it started to rain and we headed home accompanied by lightning, thunder and hail. I'm glad I wasn't one of those biking home! Maybe soon the weather will settle on one season (probably winter, unfortunately)

Thankfully I made it home before the rain! I'm enjoying sitting here in the dark this evening now that daylight savings is over, but I'm sure the novelty is going to wear off very quickly. I suspect as soon as the cold weather really closes in!
