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

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”?

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.

Coffee With A Purpose – #DoctorsChoice Coffee Review

Doctors' Choice Coffee Review

It’s time for me to come clean.

My addiction to coffee is real.

I’ve attempted to deny it many times. I even went so far as to abstain altogether in an attempt to prove that I can and that I would survive without it.

It would appear that I can hold back, and I do survive. But the question becomes, “Why bother?”

After all, there are many health benefits to coffee consumption. From what I understand there might be some drawbacks as well. But, I try to ignore them.
