Opinions are fabulous and everyone has them. However, it’s important to remember that opinions are not facts. Nor do they override facts. Unfortunately, it seems that we have forgotten the difference during this pandemic. A least according to my Facebook feed. Or we share or opinion, but state that it’s our right to have said opinion. Moreover, nobody should share an opinion that counter the one posted. Rant over.
I started my Tuesday by checking in with Goalielocks, who was awake and in a good mood. #winning. Can you believe it? I couldn’t. In fact, he even made his 8:15 Zoom class. Incredible! Fortunately, traffic continues to be light, so the drive to Dunkin’ was quick. Truly, I always enjoy the drive when the Mayor’s with me. He’s got the most eclectic and fabulous taste is music. In one drive, I could hear TLC, John Paridi, Backstreet Boys, Offspring, Blake Shelton or Bob Dylan.
This morning’s treadmill run was set to the season 9 finale of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Certainly, season 9 didn’t disappoint. Consequently, I forgot to start my running playlist. The antics of Larry and cast were enough to keep me engaged through the entirety of my workout, which is amazing. Typically, I need a tv show and my music playlist to get through an indoor run. As for the actual run, it went pretty well. Chiefly, I added additional run time. Likewise, I added more minutes to my cold down as well.
My morning run and subsequent stretch routine let me right into my Tuesday yoga class. Fortunately, today’s class emphasized stretching, which is exactly what my legs, hips and glutes needed after today’s run. So far I’m enjoying the balance of 3-4 days of gentle/restorative yoga and 1/2 days of vinyasa class. I love the challenge of the vinyasa classes, but also enjoy how the gentle yoga has helped opened up my muscles.
The post yoga glow took me to Target to pick up a prescription and allergy medicine. Regardless of the weather or season here in Florida, it is always allergy season. Also, I was in serious need of some coffee creamer. No sooner had I backed out of the driveway, when the Mayor texted me to pick up spicy chips for him and a Dr. Pepper for his brother. I decided to tease him by not responding right away.
Of course I was on the phone with my parents when I got to Target, is I left my car without my mask. Naturally, I went back to the truck to fetch my mask. Our Target won’t allow you in without a mask, no would I enter without wearing one. The store was not too busy for a Tuesday afternoon. I literally had no wait at the pharmacy or at self checkout. Fortunately, I remembered the treats for both of the boys and everything else on my list. I’m always happy when I completed a shopping trip to the letter of my shopping list.
This evening was spent cooking another great Blue Apron dinner. Tonight’s dinner was chicken with fried rice farro and ponzu mayonnaise. It was awesome! Again the recipe was easy to follow and full of yummy vegetables. Surprisingly, even my pickiest eater enjoyed the meal! I was shocked. Unsurprisingly, he didn’t eat all the peppers or cabbage in the fried rice farro, but he tried everything. I was shocked and impressed. As for the rest of the evening, I’ll be chilling with the dogs while trying to avoid all the opinions on Facebook.
