|Enjoying coffee together|
We managed to get in almost five miles (4.8) and the wind was just beginning to come up when we finished, and only a few stray raindrops made an appearance. Some of us decided to enjoy a hot cup of coffee before heading off into the rest of our day. While we sat there, we saw the rain start, and now, more than four hours later, it's still pouring outside. Yes, we dodged it all and had our exercise for the day behind us before it started.
And now I'm sitting inside my cozy apartment finishing up my latest book, Becoming, by Michelle Obama. At first I thought I'd buy the Kindle version, but when I saw the book at our local bookstore, I decided to buy the hard copy so I'd be able to look as much as I wanted at the color pictures in the center. I'm glad I did, because it really helped me visualize how much she has done for women in general. Not to mention how young she is: lots more time, I hope to make more of a difference in the world, especially for black women.
Once I'm done with the book, which will be later today, I'll start a fluffy novel that I've also been looking forward to reading. It's still raining hard and blowing outside. A good day to curl up with a book (or two).
