Incidental Water Features
I'm feeling a little guilty because I should be downstairs sewing up a storm but instead I'm sitting here posting. I can justify it because it's my birthday on Saturday and you shouldn't have to work so hard for at least a week before your birthday so you can arrive on the day feeling fresh (pathetic excuse but it's all I've got)
We found out the real source of the new water feature in the front yard. It wasn't the torrential rain. It was a leak in the pipe going to our house but it was cleverly disguised by the torrential rain so we didn't realise for a week (This quarter's water bill is going to be ugly) Actually, the only reason that we realised was because of the pretty fountain that had appeared in front of the house. Seven pm last night you could find me outside in my pj's holding a torch for Iven who was having a great time digging in the mud. He's a useful man to have in a plumbing emergency. All's well now and the water pressure to the house has improved miraculously.
Running was fantastic today. It was the best speed session I've had in at least five months. I felt strong and ran strong and looking at my HR data, I can see that my recovery between reps is very much improved. Follow a good session with breakfast in good company and I'm a very happy camper.
