That’s a saying we use regularly in my house. “Sittin’ on the dock of the bay.” It completely explains our current state of activity. No further explanation needed when asked ‘whatcha doing.’
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
(Admit it… you sang those lyrics while you read them, didn’t you)
Today is the first real day of my holiday vacation and I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay. And I’m not ashamed to say it loud and proud.
Anyone having fun with their runs and participating in the #RunChatHunt? I doubt I’ll complete the challenge, but I have managed to find a couple of the items, such as inflatables:
And a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree:
James also created a SquadRunner team of 20 people to keep us motivated and running through the holidays and beyond. We compete with other teams around the world for standings, and each day there is a quiz you can take for points, not to mention new missions (must reach a certain distance or time) which will also give you extra points.
Today’s mission is 9.5 miles. I need to get out and complete at least half of it, but it is so cold out there. Okay, nothing like riding a bike in 18 deg F cold (Jim… brrrr), but it’s cold for us… for me. My cat has taken up residence in the warmest bathroom in the house and is laying on the heating vent. You see, we had a White Christmas. Yes indeedy… it snowed.
Anyway, back to SquadRunner, we have a great team and are currently ranked 41st out of a couple hundred. Our 20 team members hail from around the globe… Germany, UK, Canada, East Coast, West Coast. We motivate, encourage, and celebrate each other. It has been such a great and positive experience and it makes me want to get out and get some mileage for the team… cold or no cold. But right now, I’m still sittin’ on the dock of the bay.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my relaxing morning, getting caught up with all of you: AJ vacationing in Arizona; Brian re-running his Village of the Damned series (which is what got me hooked on Bonnywood Manor to begin with); AB traveling during the holidays and most recently Rome; and I always enjoy reading T’s happenings and thoughts, as well as Marie’s Monday school. Also hoping for wellness for GH and a speedy recovery for Randy who recently ruptured his Achilles and had to have surgery. And hey! After a long hiatus, welcome back, WBFM!
Sometimes it’s good just sittin’ on the dock of the bay!
Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas!
