wordless friday: peace

I don't have words right now, so this may very well be the most boring update I have ever posted.  I have nothing that I feel the need or desire to discuss, to snark about, to worry about.  Maybe I will once training ramps up a bit more, but right now my life is calm.  It's easier, here.  I said it the first day I arrived: there is peace here.  I wake up - early, because I'm still on east coast time - in the morning and go train before heading to work.
Most days I bring Graham with me.  He sleeps peacefully under my desk.  If I'm going to train at lunch, sometimes I bring Molly instead, and that girl loves to run, to get muddy and worn out. 
My job is good, I'm happy here.  When my day is done, it's done.  I head home to our little house, still covered in unpacked boxes and unhung pictures, and spend time with my family.
I cook things, we eat things, we do laundry and build bookshelves and go to bed early.  My life is boring right now. 
And I couldn't be happier.

  1. Boring is good! I'm happy that you're happy!

    I am in the calm before marathon training, trying to decide if I am ready for that to start up. And I think yes, yes I am! Nearly injury-free for the first time in three months, and that's a good place to be.

  4. It IS good.
    Sometimes I look at my life now and imagine seeing it through my eyes 10 years ago. I'd have been horrified to see that my suspicions were correct: getting married makes people boring.
    But I'm so content with life now, I couldn't care less.

  8. First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that
    I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I've had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Appreciate it!
