My pen collection is getting smaller as I look to see what I haven’t used and will probably never use. I have gotten some as gifts or just picked them up in random places, which is not good for someone who wants to declutter. I need to get better at this. 😁
I woke up early this morning to beat the heat and go for my weekly long run. The cool air and the lack of people on the trail made for a peaceful and relaxing run. I’ve noticed that it’s been a bit more difficult to run long distances since I had COVID a few weeks ago, but my stamina is slowly coming back, which is a good feeling!
I took it easy today and walked for a good portion of my August 22.1 km half-marathon, completing it at a leisurely 8:49/km pace. That’s pretty slow, but I’m happy to have finished it nonetheless. 😀
We’re in serious decluttering mode here, and I’ve been trying to sell and give away things on Facebook marketplace. Recently I sold a bicycle, some shelves, and donated a bunch to Goodwill. The motorcycle helmet above is also for sale! At one time I had three helmets. When I upgraded to a new helmet, I just kept the old one… but I really only need one. So, let’s clear out the old stuff!
This happened on Tuesday, and although I think the symptoms are mild, I am not 100% so my daily photos/posts will be delayed a bit. Not to fear, I am still taking photos everyday! It’s just hard to catch up on the posts. Hopefully I’ll feel better soon.
Mariko framed three paintings that our friend Yellow created, then our son’s girlfriend, who is studying interior design, recommended a good spot for them, and then I hung them.
I think they look pretty good there, although they are not completely level in the photo. 🙂
