waking up on the right side of the bed!

Today was just one of those really great days. Work went smoothly and even got a compliment out of the blue.  The weather was absolutely perfect for a springy day and I went out for the longest solo run I’ve done in a long time!! Got some relatively good news about a family member which is always niceSmile  Besides the hubby not being home I give this day an A+!

not that this picture has anything to do with the above! but its nice and cheery and reminds me of the springtime ahead!

Back on the topic of reflection, I looked at the weather forecast for this weekend. 72 and sunny? what? I’m loving that.  We were lucky to have a few trips to warmer climates this winter and enjoyed some warmer weather.  Life just beachy don’t you think?

I’ve been a little slackerish  this past month.  But looking back the last month has been extremely busy.  I’ve just chosen to slack on the blogfront.  Sickness has plagued the Dollards (nothing more serious than the flu bug). We traveled to NYC to visit with some friends (well I traveled- karl travels there weekly) and we bought and sold a house ( we haven’t closed on either yet). 

I’ve taken some fun pictures from some adventures over the past month which I plan to post over the next week. 



This is one of my favorites. Karl is outside taking a picture of Jill and I through the window at our all time favorite coffee shop- Stumptown coffee.  We traveled to Portland/Seattle for a marathon a few years back when we first met. I’d say our friendship blossomed over this coffee! It’s the only one of its kind east of the Mississippi. Okay I really don’t know if that is true, but I know there aren’t many outside the west coast. This was the first cup of coffee I could drink black! ( I still add cream and sugar though).




perfection! I may have had 2 cups this trip!
