Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

You are Right!Delete
WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! DID YOU GROW THE RASPBERRIES!? I remember that was an issue wasn't it!? Those look amazing!ReplyDelete
Oh, I wish. No, those are my parents' plants. I planted 2 raspberry plants this spring. One has leaves, one is dead. Whether or not the one produces fruit remains to be seen. Stay tuned.Delete
Those raspberries do look beautiful -- and so does your redhead!ReplyDelete
I love raspberries--and my redheaded boy!Delete
trying the 'running' thing again (2 miles in the very early morning… naturally the whole reason I am interested is to see if I can reduce my time and, in the process, recover some cardiovascular capacity that seems to have slipped away in the past, I don't know, 15 or 20 years?)ReplyDelete
You will be able to do both, but my (unsolicited) advice is to start slow. Build up the cardiovascular capacity first, then work on slowly increasing the time. When I first started, I ran too fast (granted, it was still slow, but it was too fast for me), and found it too difficult.Delete
I love raspberries and I also love running, probably the latter most of all.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing and good luck with the rest of the challenge :)
I'm a bit of a roller-coaster runner--some weeks I'm very consistent, other weeks I struggle to run. Hopefully I'll be able to become more disciplined in my efforts.Delete
I love raspberry! The fruit, the color, the scent.ReplyDelete
And I love redheads! Have one of my very own, although he tries to deny it (which is not possible).
One of the raspberry plants I planted this year is not dead yet. :-)Delete
My redhead has embraced his hair color, but when he was younger he did get annoyed with all the little old ladies who would tell him what "pretty" hair he had.
