“Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” Theodore Roosevelt

Show of hands, who else took their daily walk in the dark tonight? And saw a meteor shower? And saw the band of the Milky Way stretch clear across the sky? And heard two owls talking to each other hidden in the cedars?  And smelled a prairie fire nearby? Anyone, anyone?  I did. 😊

I even had child #3 ask if he could tag along tonight and ride his bike! It took me an extra 25 minutes to walk my 5K tonight with him stopping often, but at least I wore out a child in the process, easy bed time tonight. I’m going to be really sad when it gets to be too cold to do my walks in the dark and I have to resort to gym, but Kansas weather is highly unpredictable, we’ll see how much longer I can make it before winter wins out.

I have a confession: I had gluten today. It was not on purpose, I wasn’t going to knowingly cheat either. Our first choice of breakfast establishments was insanely busy this morning, we had to come up with a quick second option.  I had no idea that Wahoo Fire & Ice Grill even had a Sunday brunch, but we were lucky to stumble upon them early before everyone else started arriving. I found steak tacos on the menu, which I assumed were crunchy corn taco shells, but I should have asked because they came out in soft flour tortillas.  Oh well, I was so hungry and I refused to be a pain in the ass customer and send back those delicious tacos with perfectly cooked steak.

Another first today: I drank coffee with only Splenda in it, and I liked it.  Folks, I usually add enough creamer to make my coffee match the color of my walls, which is a very, very, very light cappuccino color of beige. 😬

So, not a perfect diet day, but the end of my day was just about as perfect as it can get.  All that’s left to do is sip some hot tea, rub down my feet with my oils, and listen to some Amos Lee as I drift off to sleep. Sweet dreams, all.
