Yesterday did not work out as planned!  I had an eye appt after work and due to a little mix-up it ended up taking alot longer than anticipated.  Unfortunately this left me with a time crunch and I chose to swap my planned run yesterday with my planned rest day for today. 

Truthfully I COULD have fit it in .... but I really wanted to watch the results show for So You Think You Can Dance.  Glad I did as I was pleased with the results.  Also, after having run the last 4 days in a row, I kind of needed the rest day.  I'll get that easy run in today.  I have to, I kind of have to reach my mileage goal for the month.

Let me introduce you to Jeffrey ....

Jeffrey (as named by a friend's daughter) is our resident moose on our new property.  He comes visiting from time to time.  I'm thinking he's quite young.  Usually he comes early morning or at dusk, and apparently he likes to drink from a hole we dug that gathers water.  Our dog & him seem to have an understanding where they just ignore each other.

On the July long weekend, when we went up to our property, our very good friends from Washington state came up with us.  This is his "unit".  It's a sort of custom motorhome that he uses for business.  That "little" trailer at the back held an SUV, 4 quads, 6 mountain bikes, and a ton of other bits & pieces.  The motorhome section sleeps something like 12 people comfortably, more in a pinch.  Now THAT'S camping!  That little blip in the picture is my 16 yr-old son.

It's another long weekend here for us - provincial holiday on Monday.  Not sure what's on the agenda but definitely some running today, tomorrow & Sunday.  Monday is a scheduled rest day but I wouldn't mind doing some biking or something else casual.

Have a great weekend and Keep Active!
