Mornin' Not touched base for awhile. How did the 1/2 marathon go? How go the adoptions - still ahve any kittens? Kiten season should be slowing down. We are ready to start volunteering again and met with the volunteer coordinator for Bend SPay and Neuter last Thus. They do very low cost S&N and vaccinatons and the only organition in town that does TNR. I have a back issue right now so will have to ait until I get some teroid shots on the 13th Wil lbe very different as all the surgeris are dame day and the kities wil b ptry gorggy so not as much hands on kitty cuddling. But S&N and TNR are something we both fervently believe in. I;ll be lernig how to use an autoclave as allinstruments neeed to be sterilized after each surgery and untains of luandry I guess (I;m good at that) LOL We'll see how it goes as to what else we can be helpful with. Bryan's maintenane mech talents will be put to use. How have you been - any out-of-town visitors or trips anywhere? How is your IT friend doing with his kitty. Hugz
Thanks you so much. We have both had such a busy summer. Today is the first real Fall feeling day an I am reveling in the wind blustering through the pines. I really am ready to nest soon and maybe we can get caught up. hugs
Thanks for the congrats! Busy x 4 here too. After two back to back long road trips we are glad to be back home. Have a 4 day one coming up end of Aug. Then a dear friend from WA visitng for 5 days. So many fires around here and so dry they have banned all open brning of any kind, even in approved camp site fire rings. They;re trying to get through the rest of this very bad fire season.
Thanks so much for all the congrats! The number of adoptions is wonderful. Kittens present so well for adoptions - so hard to resist them. Didn't know you were doing a half marathon! Is this for a cause of some kind and when is it? What kind of training are you doing? You go girl! Leaving again Wed but that is the last long trip of the summer.
Ten adoptions is very cool. I love the fact that there were two adults in that mix. Those of us who are somewhat past our maximum cuteness need love too. You've got lots of time to ramp up. When I ran my half marathon I made the decision in August and ran it at the end of October. I'd had a good consistent base of just over five miles a day for a number of months prior to making the decision though. As I recall I made the dailies just a tad longer but started designating my Saturday run as my "long run" for the week. I never went beyond eleven miles in my training but had no trouble on race day. In fact, I still had plenty in the tank at the end of the race and could have easily done a couple more. Those days are behind me though now. I'm still kinda surprised that I did it because I never considered myself a "runner". In truth you had to time me with a calendar for the race so I never really achieved runner status anyway. LOL
