I’ve been so busy this weekend that I haven’t had a chance to update.
I have another work training week in St. Louis this week so I drove up by myself again on Friday. I really hate leaving Kevin and the dogs. I miss them very much but I’ve also enjoyed my time here. It feels like “me time!”
The weather has been incredible and the fall colors are indescribable.
When I got into St. Louis Friday afternoon, I decided to go for my first run since the marathon last Sunday. It was a sluggish 3 miles and my legs felt like lead but the neighborhood and weather was beautiful plus I ran for fun and I enjoyed it.
I showered and dressed up a bit and ate at a restaurant that I’ve been wanting to go to for a long time “Evangeline’s Bistro”…..a touch of New Orleans in St. Louis. I had Duck and a drink called “Champagne and Lace!” It’s a beautiful restaurant that plays jazz and the food was excellent.
I got up feeling so good on Saturday morning that I decided to run. I ran 4 miles and I felt great! I enjoyed that run so much that I remembered why I liked running. I felt like a kid running.
After my shower, I went to the plaza and watched the kids and pets in their Halloween parade. James, Daniel and Sadie came over and we ate lunch at Gringos. I kept the kids for a while while James run some errands and Daniel spend the night. We had a great time. 🙂
I spent time with both the kids today and we played in all the leaves at Forest Park.
Fall is especially beautiful this year.
Also, I order new running shoes that I’ve wanted to try and I found a great discount so it was time. They should arrive at my home tomorrow but I’m not home!
I’ve had a better than perfect day. Anytime I spend time with Daniel and Sadie…it’s a good day.
Tonight after I walked around the neighborhood for a couple of hours, I showered and went to another restaurant that I have been wanting to try for a long time. “Taste”
I had the best dish that I’ve ever had in all my vast restaurant experience. And a great atmosphere.
