It's true--I'm still jet-lagged. I wake up at 3:00 a.m. and can't get back to sleep. So I sit in my little powder room and sew/read/meditate/catch up on blog reading for a couple of hours till it's light enough to go out and run. This morning, I ran in a light drizzle, which was lovely. As I head back to the house, I'm met by my walking partner, Shira, age 7, and we head out together for some brisk power walking. When we come back in, we eat breakfast and play some card games. Our current favorite: Rat-a-Tat-Cat. Lucky thing I'm a good loser. Here's a picture of Shira from last year.
