~Bruce Springsteen, Thunder Road
That was the song playing on my i-pod early this morning as I strode down my neighborhood streets, dodging raindrops and loving every minute of it! You see, despite the fact that I'm a Leo and therefore a Sun sign, I am really a moon girl. I love walking in the late night or early morning when la luna is glowing, it's cool and quiet. I can think, meditate, or just turn up the music and turn my brain off for a while. Once the sun has risen, I have no interest in being outdoors unless it's in my pool or on a beach. It's just too freakin' hot! Maybe I'm a vampire? *wink*
Also, I enjoy waking up and having coffee with Beren before he heads off to work and that doesn't leave much time for a walk. However, he's on a new work schedule now and is leaving the house by 6:30 so guess what? If I get up and put on my workout clothes while he gets dressed, I can still share our morning java time & then hit the pavement while he's pulling out of the driveway. It's still a bit dark outside and today I had the added bonus of a light rain to keep me cool. Perfect!
Off to the office for me, have a ton of work to catch up on. As far as dinner plans, it's Pizza Night for the Man and the Kids and I'd planned on leftovers for myself but, alas, the post-vacation fridge is pretty bare! Apparently when Mama isn't here the little darlings do more dining out than in. Instead, I'm going to make myself a nice salad so that I don't feel deprived while they're devouring that cheesey goodness. This recipe for Chicken and Strawberries Over Mixed Greens looks delicious and refreshing. After a light dinner, maybe I'll feel like taking another Vampira moonlit walk...heh..heh..heh...
Have a Beauty-Full Day,
