It’s true. I’ve been reinventing myself with my evening run. Despite the rather delightful summer we have been having in Minnesota, the mornings can be despicably hot. Well, actually, I can’t really say that, because I’ve been snoozing in quite a bit this summer. Sleep has recently become my friend again, the best of which occurs just before my alarm rings at 6 am, then again at 7 am. And sometimes even 8 am.

Run The Race That You're In: A 4th Of July Run

When I was a kid, the 4th of July was one of my favorite holidays. It probably lined right up with Christmas. You wouldn’t think that a kid would be so patriotic as to find this summertime celebration rank right up there with Santa Claus. But it did.

Yeah, I have always been a true American. I love what the holiday represents. Independence Day! Red, White, and Blue! Uncle Sam! The Statue of Liberty!

#MustHaveBox by #PopSugar Begs The Question…Where Is My Hammock?

PopSugar #MustHaveBox begs the question, where is my hammock?

POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try! #sponsored

We used to have one. And I don’t think I ever used it. My girls did, though. In fact, that is why we bought it. They used to sit in it with their goats.

But when I opened this #MustHaveBox from PopSugar, my first thought was, “I need a hammock.”

After all, how often does one get such a great package of goodness in the mail, that pretty much fulfills the female need to just “be”?

Sleep.

Overrated?

The verdict is still out.

For, as many articles as you will find on why sleep is so important and necessary for good health, you’ll find just as many articles that claim the opposite.

Although, that might not be completely accurate. It’s not to say that sleep isn’t important, it is to say that quality of sleep, not quantity of sleep, is the true factor when it comes to it being beneficial.

If you aren’t from a northern tier state, then I guess you probably didn’t realize that in the dead of the summer, the sun hangs around much longer than it does in a state closer to the equator. Anytime we get a visitor to our home in June or July, it is the sunrise and sunset times that pretty much throw them for a loop. From approximately 4:30 am to 9:45 pm, it is light enough outside to see the hand in front of your face. That is a lot of daylight hours! So, not only is Minnesota the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”, but it is also the “Land of the Never-ending Day”, at least for a few weeks.
