A planned day for me is always a great day. I wake and I brew my coffee. I sit in Cuzzie and read until it is light and I have read a few more chapters to my book. It is funny and a great read. I am wanting a team of dogs to attempt this race! LOL, next adventure maybe! Coffee brewed, rain and heavy hail storms and then it was into Greymouth, as mentioned yesterday I was needing to train and get physically challenged.
Fat Max Gym in Greymouth was located and I was given access to train. Thanks to them I was back in my grove and enjoying a return to lifting weights, albeit lighter than before, but a fulfilling one hour session. The next stop was the swimming pools to knock out some lengths. This is water therapy at its best for me, I like doing lengths. I swim, I clear my mind and I get out after 30 lengths feeling great about today.
Next I was to head over to Reefton, Dawsons Autolodge for there monthly quiz night. They were raising funds for me and MHFNZ. What a good night! My team did really well, but we did not win. We did however have $300 raised tonight. The biggest thanks to the Reefton people, a great night. I also must say, the lamb shanks for dinner, now they were incredible, yum! Insanely great food tonight, so damn good. In fact I could and wished I had ordered a second helping for me to takeaway, shanks cooked so well the meat just melted in my mouth.
It was such a great day today, meeting and locating cool local places and people. Despite a really cold, wet, thunderous day I did not really notice. I got everything done I wanted to and I am feeling great,focused and content. I nailed this day so well. More tomorrow and I am looking forward to it all. I have a spring in my step and I am cruising in 4th gear.
My smiles today:
The hail, the lighting and the thunder.
The gym and the locals, it was great
My swimming. I like swimming lots.
My focus and my success today.
Dawson's and the Autolodge Reefton, $300 raised, thanks guys and girls.
My thoughts today:
I like storms, they let me know that even the sky screams sometimes!
Good night from me, resident overstayer at 12 mile, north of Greymouth.
