Nice day in Boulder

It was a lovely summer day in Boulder - 85, sunny, a nice breeze, and then a bit of a rain shower in the afternoon to cool things off for the evening.

The lunchtime power walk was the best one yet - not too hot, enough of a breeze to cool us off. We completed out 3 miles 5 minutes more quickly than normal, even including the extra loop. Of course it helped that the slow people (my boss and a co-worker) weren't along. T**** pushed the pace and I kept up quite handily.

It was a good day at work too - I accomplished a great deal and we had a few giggles during the day. Only one meeting fraught with undertones, but those involved managed to keep a rein on their tempers. Not that we accomplished anything in said meeting, but it could have been much worse.

Had a egg/potato/cheese burrito for breakfast and a Luna bar for lunch. A liter of water during the day as well. A pint of blueberries for dinner will top it off nicely.

Big discussion about boyfriends and husbands this afternoon, as M****'s long-time mate sent her flowers yet again. So of course she had to tease the rest of us. I tried to hide in my little cube, but was forcibly drawn into the conversation at one point. Admitting that I had no one truly special was a bit disheartening. But M***** offered 'to beat those stupid men up' for me, and we all had fun with that. Then I got the lecture on how I have to go out more, which was amusing. Dating tips from co-workers can be kinda scary.

Need to decide what to do for the birthday. I'm thinking hiding out will be a good option. Maybe I will take myself to the movies or something. It sucks when you cannot even buy yourself a present...

Got to talk to Peggy a bit this afternoon, which was very nice. More on that to follow.

Am having fun with the Thought of the Moment toy here on LJ.

Time to go play with the wood.
