Saturday I did something really special…I flew to Toronto for the day to visit my grandparents.
My grandfather turns 97 in a couple of weeks and my grandmother isn’t far behind at 93. They live in a retirement home together and this June, god willing, they will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary!!
During my travels to and from Toronto (which is a 4-5 hour drive from my house and only a 45 minute flight…making the cost of the flight SOOOOO worth it!) I had a latte from Starbucks…
I’m not sure if you have this in the US (please let me know – I’ve never thought to look while at airports in the US!), but for bringing liquids in your carry-on, they all need to fit into a 1L clear plastic bag – which you can get for free at the airport. I like to be environmentally responsible and re-use my bag as many times as possible…apparently the security guy thought mine needed to be retired because he quietly gave me two more and said, “I think it’s time” – ba-hahaha!
Abby spent the day with my parents while I was in Toronto…she literally has her own lazy-boy at their place. #spoiled
Then I did some strength work with Supervisor Abby on duty, including pushups…
Sunday morning the temperature had warmed up a few degrees – only -6F/-22C lol. But the sun was brilliant and when you’re out with your friends, it’s always warmer!
Scouting for squirrels to terrorize….
And then fully enjoying being off-leash – something that doesn’t happen all that often due to her COMPLETE LACK OF RECALL.
If I leave any clothing lying around, guaranteed Abby will find it and curl up on it!
Last week I ran 64km (40 miles)…that’s the distance of the ultra I ran years ago (2003 to be precise…OMG, where has the time gone??)…I was clearly slacking last week! lol!! Funny, it really didn’t feel that way!!!
