Saving the Spider Web

We weren't sure if we would be sleeping early last night as our neighbors were having a big party which included fireworks. However, we put the fan on and really didn't hear a thing, so we were able to get to bed early and a have a good night's sleep.  So luckily I was able to wake up my usual early time and get out.

After a brief chat with Kate on FB as to why we were up so early,  I headed out the door.  As I headed over the dam I noticed the spider had been working the night shift again, however this time I ducked under the web and didn't disturbed it or get web all over me.

As usual, the run was beautiful, no one was out except  for the birds and me...and oh ya and a deer fly.  The deer fly followed me the whole way and at one point I realized how useful it would be to have a tail like a horse to swat it.  I continued along my way and saw a dark mound in front of me..what was that... a giant pile of moose droppings (moose on the brain)??  As I got closer, I saw it was a piece of clothing.  I decided to stop to investigate. I tend to like investigating things.  It was a beach dress, my story for this dress was that it fell of the back of a 4wheeler, it was size XL and had that combo smell of cigs and perfume.  I decided to use this as my horse tail.  I picked it up and for the duration of my run swung it around my head and side to side like a tail to swat away the deer fly.  It worked and it was sort of fun.

My run was a somewhat modified SC training loop.  I'm pretty sure I left the house around 4:30 and I was back at around 7, so I was happy with my time spent on my feet.  Overall, very pleased to have done this solid run.

On my way back, the spider web was gone, I figured George must have had the pleasure of running through it, as he was just getting up as I was heading out, although I didn't see him anywhere along the way.

Not sure what the weather is for today. It looks a bit like rain right now.  But I know tomorrow will be nice, huge congrats to Kate and Jamie, tomorrow is their big day!!

Have a wonderful day!

Keep Dreaming!
