Hello July! Ultimate Coffee date!

Hello July!  Hello summer!  Come here you beautiful mug of coffee!  It may be hot outside but that cup still tastes good first thing in the morning!  You know I had to join the cool club and get this Utah mug while I was traveling!


Thanks for stopping by, let’s chat!  June was a whirlwind of fun with my big adventure in Utah!  I spent time with friends and made new friends!  Click here if you missed my race recap. My family was also here for a visit!  It was fun to have everyone in one spot!   I do not have any travel plans for July, do you?


I finished June with a total of 53.20 miles.  Summer miles should really count as double, I mean I am doing double laundry right?  Wow…… it has been sweaty!  How was your month?  I have only one race on the schedule for July and that is the Red, White & Brew 5K in Lakeland on Tuesday morning.  That is it!  Nope, I am not feeling bad about that, it is summertime!

Briar- 4 months old!

Luna – 3 weeks old!

Did someone mention grand babies ?  Luna joined the family on June 6th!  Yes, these 2 girls are growing fast!  Grumpa got to spend some pool time with Briar and Skippy has been lunching with Luna on Tuesdays.  I love it!  These little ones put a big smile on my face!



You know the hours between coffee time and wine down have kept me busy.  This month the motto is, Be Strong, Be Brave, Be You!  I am really being brave and working on a big project that I hope to be able to share with you on the next coffee date.  I did decide to retire from health care completely and stop thinking NO and start thinking YES!   Yes, it is time to be BRAVE!

So, hello July, I plan on being busy!  How about you?  What do you have going on?  

Be sure to stop by and visit with Deborah and Coco too for the Ultimate Coffee date!

  1. I am really really curious about this new job! I hope it will be less stressful than the old one and fun too! Plus you need more time with the grandbabies. They are going to be BFFs, right?

    I’ve got my birthday challenge and BlogFest in July. No travels plans, though. Hopefully some hiking and/or trail running, though. Your grandbabies are adorable. 🙂 Good luck on your big project; it sounds exciting. And congrats on a great June!!

    It’s been super hot and humid lately over here too! Props to you for running in this weather! I definitely think they should count double! 😛

    I love your motto for the month–definitely a good one!

  11. I’m really looking forward to a little r&r in Juldy (but also have a race on the 4th).

    If I lived where you do, I’d be on the treadmill all summer.

    Good luck with whatever the new adventure is!

  12. What the heck is that giant bird on your June mileage photo?! It’s really cool!

  13. Teresa says:

    Oh the suspense is killing us all!! It sounds soooo mysterious yet exciting! 🙂

    It’s so dang hot and humid that I’m not the least bit guilty of my pitiful running miles this month either! (way to go, you did 20 more than me) I’m enjoying the air conditioning of the gym these days! haha

    Sweetest babies ever! Enjoy!

  14. What kind of bird is that running through your neighborhood anyway? It looks huge! I can’t wait to see what big project you’re working on.
    We have been entertaining thoughts of buying a boat. I hope if it ever morphs into actual “shopping” it takes me near you! You wouldn’t believe the number of boats for sale in Florida!

      A boat? That sounds exciting! Can you pull it with the RV? The bird is a sand hill crane and their are tons of them roaming around the neighborhood 🙂 I swear some mornings they are moving faster than I am!
