If you've followed this blog for a while or my old blog
"Wanna Buy a Duck" I'm sure you've heard me mention
my life long friend Marilyn.
Marilyn is in training. Training for what, you might ask.
Training for a triathlon to be held August 6.
Not so unusual but Marilyn is 78 and triathlons are a passionate hobby for her.
You could say she is always in training because her exercise week is divided up by
swimming, running and biking.
I would never even get started at the gate, but I'm the one waiting at the finish
line, flouncing the pom poms. I am bursting with energy when I watch her
commitment to her workout schedule.
She will be coming for a visit next month, driving her van with her bike
in it's rack. There is an olympic size pool at the Y and plenty of running
space here. She can do her thing while I hoe my spuds.
I planted potatoes yesterday and my Fed Ex guy said I'm late. They should
have been in the ground by St. Paddy's Day. But then I read in the Farmer's
Almanac that we should never plant potatoes in the sign of Pisces and March
17 is still Pisces. Oh dear, what to do! I just got some old sprouted
organic red potatoes from my daughter. Nice sprouts but
Lily started chewing on them and poof went some of the long sprouts.
Have a happy week and you A to Z'ers are on the home stretch.
