December Daily 2009 :: 05 + 06
It has been freezing cold here. I went for a run yesterday morning in 20 degree weather! My body never warmed up — in fact, my legs were completely stiff and it was a struggle to finish 3 miles.
Because it has been so cold, all I want to do is curl up under a blank and sleep (or watch tv — anything other than work). I tried to work on December Daily last night but I could barely keep my eyes open. After I get off this couch, I hope to get days 9 & 10 done.
On Saturday, I went out with a couple friends to shop for ornaments. Each year, I pick up a few new ornaments — something that represents an event or trip from that year.
Ornaments: (1) Let’s Take a Ride Mickey Mouse 2009 – represents our first hot air balloon ride in Park City, Utah, (2) Blue Crab from Chincoteague island, VA and (3) Ice Cream Cone – represents his sweet tooth (His motto: I may be full, but there’s always room for dessert.)
Here’s a look at the original page 5:
I went to the Christmas Tree lot this weekend and found this 4 ft tall beauty. She’s small but fits perfectly in our home.
The major event around town this weekend was the California International Marathon. I did not run but was out there in the freezing cold to cheer on my friend Jewels, who ran in a 4-person relay. I will not run a marathon (been there, done that and hated it!) but I would love to participate in a 2-person relay.
Here’s what the page looked like before:
I changed the original page because I wanted a quick and easy way to document two events for one day. The baseball card sheet protector provided the foundation for this simple page. I kept the flower and number from the original page — I just trimmed it to fit inside the pocket.
