The only way I can describe this morning's run is breathlessly beautiful.
It was a full moon morning with golden dots of clouds that cleared as the moon went down to reveal a silvery blanket of fog.
The fog settled into the deep places, leaving the hills and mountains to look like islands in a magical lake. As I neared my turnaround spot, the road seemed to drop off into a sea, with tall trees ahead .
It was a perfect ending to a pretty-darned-good running week. I scheduled my long run in early so I can have Saturday to play. :)
Tonight I get to go to a women's retreat at Loon Lake, spend the night at the lodge, and come home late Saturday. My only plans are to have some sweet fellowship while I drink my coffee, reclining on a comfy sofa before it gets cold or spilled on me. The other plan is to sleep in. No alarm clock and I will request to sleep past breakfast (if my body will agree).
This week's activities included a recent trail hike, just the boys and I. The trail is actually on private property that my husband does some tractor mowing on. The owners have graciously allowed us to come hike whenever we like. They live out of state, so that leaves a lot of opportunities to go and explore in the woods.

|Little guy loves the dirt. He had it in his hair and all over by the time he got off the log :)|
