This is just rushing the season! People already have trouble enjoying fall because of the dread of winter being around the corner, without posting something like this. Wait--is that a butterfly caught in the center? Ah, this is one of those whorley-gig things that was put up to look pretty and decorative in the summer and was never taken down. A vestige.
It's also a very pretty picture, really, of a snow that's just fallen. It won't stay so clean and pretty, so by all means, take the picture. It'll last forever.
I didn't do much with my weekend, I must admit, but I did throw out a few things, especially old calendars that were there to remind me of how much I used to run (tempo runs, quarter mile repeats, long runs...did I really, honestly do all that, follow a--routine?) and accuse me of doing exactly what I am doing now. And I moved around some knick-knacks (it's more fun to say that if you pronounce both k's) to make more room for books, and they are a very literal vestige of where I've been and what my tastes have been. Now they are in the basement. Yep, there's a flamingo shelf down there to cheer me on when I'm using the treadmill. All those flos in my fan crowd.
Obviously, they can't hand anyone a cup of water or any jellybeans, but I was never good at consuming stuff while running, anyway. But they are festive.
Flamingos: there's something retro about them, but they remain popular.
I suppose I was going somewhere with that, but--
