The past week has been rainy and stormy. We've gone outside only hesitantly, and even then with a grimace displaying our discomfort of this ugly, hostile weather.
Today the world seems transformed. The sun is shining and the air is mild. What a delicious change!
My sons chose to use the good weather for tossing around a ball in the garden. Kristian is not to fond of playing ball, only when his older brother asks - then he is all for it!
I grabbed my camera (I SO enjoy having the use of it again - good thing I went and bought that new charger for the battery) - thinking it may be a long time before my boys play soccer again - and it may be the last time on this lawn.
I will try to take many pictures of Andreas in the next few days. Because friday he gets on a train to Copenhagen, and I won't see him again until june 15th. It is strange, but I think he will have a marvellous time and I wish him the best. No clingy mother am I - and even though it is a strange thought that my son will probably never live permanently with me again, it is really what a parent strive for: that your child is able to go out and make a life of his own. To me, that is success.
After taking pictures of my lovely boys, I laced my NB's and went out for a run. It went marvellously! I have cut off more than 5 minutes of my usual 5 km run, since I started running again 1½ month ago.
Running today was a treat. With the air mild, and even the sound of birds in nearby gardens, and suddenly I noticed the first touches of green in gardens I ran by. Also, the feeling in my body was different. This is the first really pleasant run I have had in more than a year. I am finally to the point where I run effortlessly - I get winded and sweaty, but running just feels so good. I wanted to run further, and even after unlacing my shoes, I wanted to put them back on and run some more.
I might go again tomorrow! It just felt so sweet.
When I got home, the kids were ready to take off. They have now gone to visit their grandparents, and they won't come home until later tonight.
So far, it's been a lovely sunday.
