I was gearing up for a run this morning when I found Matt’s cell phone on his nightstand. We are those kind of folks who freak out a bit if we leave the house without our phones, so I decided to run it down to him.
But in the process, I realized I didn’t really want to run with a phone in my hand.
So I resorted to walking!! I packed a couple of magazines and decided instead of a 40-minute 4-miler, I’d walk an 80-minute 4-miler.
Once at the bakery though, I realized my help was needed as customers piled into the door. I worked the counters for a while and did my fairy tasks that lets the employees know I was there: straighten up under the counters, put things at right angles, tidy the office, sort out baskets, rearrange the retail side of the lobby. The bakery is kind of like living with 12 roommates – everyone picks up after themselves, but there are just things that get messy by the fact that a dozen people are working there. I love to go in a pull a Mary Poppins on the place!
Lunch ended up being a sampling of a few things – a slice of community sandwich (imagine a 2’ long braided cheddar garlic loaf filled with sandwich ingredients for employees to take slices of for lunch)
Plus a salad I picked up next door for some greens –
A hunks of this cinnamon chip monkey bread. Melanie always makes the most creative designs with leftover dough! Also for employee use (although I think we should sell things like this – it was fun to pull apart!)
By the time I left around 2, this was all that was left!!
Busy, busy day. I took the long way home to get the maximum stretch out of my walk. My legs are twitching in exhaustion now! Does that ever happen to yours after a long walk or hike? Never after a run! Must be the slow-twitch fibers!?
Off to do something fun!
