A Night Alone....



I don’t normally get many nights alone, since Leigh and I live together, which is okay, because we love each other’s company. However last night Leigh had a business trip to Columbus, OH, and then on to Cleveland and will be back this evening, so I had the night to myself.

It is an odd feeling to come home and it be quiet, but there is a certain peace to it. It has always amazed me, when I am alone, I get much more motivated, and I have no idea why that is. It seems that since I have a chance to do whatever I want to do I could veg out on the couch and no one care, but that never seems to happen. Just as the norm, I ran home last night, and fed the dogs, and sent out a few emails for TwinBay and made 2 business calls and then got busy with my evening.


I went downstairs, and got my 3 mile run in, which I have really been enjoying, I have finally gotten back on schedule with working out, and it has been a saving grace. It is a time for me, where I can let my mind stop thinking about work and everyday responsibilities and let it wonder to wonderful thoughts. I think about owing a huge farm in TX with 30 horses, and a nice indoor arena, and how awesome that would be!


After I finished my workout, I cooled off with a huge glass of water on the deck and could see the horses staring at me, and I knew they were ready to eat. Rebo never misses a beat, as soon as you step foot on the deck he knows and is at the gate in a flash! So I went on down to the barn, cleaned all the stalls, got fresh water, fed, and brought the boys in, and tucked them all in their fresh stalls for the night. It was so nice out, not to hot, and it was just a very peaceful night.

I came back in and decided on supper, which I knew I needed some protein since my workout, so had a nice dinner of eggs, fresh tomatoes, and black beans. It was awesome! Then I looked at the clock and it was only 8:30!! Wow, I had time to relax and read and watch tv, which of course I didn’t do, I got on the computer and did some more work. I did make myself put everything away at 10:00 and enjoy relaxing for an hour or so before I called it a night. it was a great evening, and I really enjoyed getting all of my stuff done.

Oh, the pic is from earlier in the week! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

I agree with ya on the 'more motivated when no one is around' thing! For whatever reason, when Mr. C isn't here, I'm usually a cleanin' fool. Today is NOTHING like that though.

And I'm impressed with your 3 mile run. I've been trying to get back into running, but travelling so much for work really puts a downer on that!

I need to get myself a treadmill. I can totally see myself running in front of the TV while John is laying on the couch! Heehee!

I think time alone every now and again is great for your peace of mind. It sounds like you had a great evening! I love the photo too!

Hugs from Yellowstone!
