Indio, California: I guess we are not very superstitious, as we did nothing to prevent calamity this Friday the 13th, yet nothing bad happened around here.
Can't say the same for Lisa, who didn't get Leo to school on time as he refused to get dressed this morning. Leo wanted to run around naked. Oh, don't you just love those Terrible Two's? It's like Friday the 13th everyday with a toddler.
I was too excited for my Day of Rest tomorrow, so I covered seven miles - alternated running and walking between songs on my iPad - this morning. The weather was perfect and I exercised in a tee shirt. (Sorry to all you snowed-in people.) Seven miles is a really long distance for this old gal, but four of the miles were covered on dirt/sand trails - easier on my ancient knees.
I had a shopping errand on El Paseo (the Rodeo Drive of the Palm Springs area), so convinced My Driver to take me downtown to shop and to visit a new-to-us restaurant,Wolfgang Puck's Pizza Bar.
The reason for our trip to the fancy shopping street was so I could visit the Coach store. I had a generous gift card and a coupon for 25% off... which means I now have a beautiful new evening bag for next-to-nothing! The Madison Twist Wristlet is so cute and is eight-inches long, so it can hold my phone, pocket camera, reading glasses, a lipstick, keys and has slots for credit cards and ID. Perfect for a night out. This cute bag also comes in red.
DT and I spent a quiet Shabbat at home by the fire. My pedometer clicked over 20,000 steps!
SLOGGER REPORT: 7 tough miles. It took absolutely FOREVER, but I have now covered 49 miles this month and need ONLY 51 more to reach my goal. So very very very excited to have a day off tomorrow!
Until my next update, I remain, your Shabbat Shalom correspondent.
