Yarrrr, there he blows. The vessel in the distance is carrying My Captain away at 26 knots while I gaze longingly from my widow’s watch
One of my very favorite books is Ahab’s Wife, Or The Star Gazer by Sena Jeter Naslund. The book tells the story of Ahab’s wife’s life and is perhaps one of the most beautifully written books I’ve ever read.
We traveled to the gym this morning via golf cart and I spent 40 minutes on an old fashioned elliptical. Then the Matt’s and I ran home in light rain – just over a mile. It was a very fast run (being with the boys and all) and also a very wet run! It started pouring just as we pulled in the last half mile.
We had an earlier lunch because of the husband’s family’s departure. I turned a ham sandwich into a salad. Spinach topped with:
- Maple Ham
- Half an egg
- Candied nuts
- Honey Mustard
Plus a yogurt that I bought at the market with some Kashi H2H from home –
And I had 1/4 of a grapefruit and a few tortilla chips from the bag.
And we were encouraged to eat the bourbon balls before we leave tomorrow!
