–IT WAS A CRISP AND COOL 60 SOMETHING DEGREES THIS MORNING DOWN IN TEXAS! Gotta love catching this early RUNrise after teaching spin class. Yes, we got a little fall preview. I was back in the saddle this morning after the holiday and I have to say it was great being back on the bike! Whenever I don’t teach a class I always truly miss it. And today is my super busy day since I teach another class at the gym after work tonight. Bring it on.
–My new favorite essential oil for the upcoming fall season – clove. I keep this one at my desk at work and it keeps me blissful all day long. That is one thing I always have to have with me to keep my mood up. Some smell good things…whether it is lotion or oils or some kind of travel perfume.
–Another thing I do at my desk at work – wear fuzzy slippers. I have an adjustable desk at work so I move around but I am now committed to doing it all WITH FUZZY SLIPPERS ON. No shame whatsoever. Glad I work at a job that allows such comfort.
–People that aren’t from Texas…is it a thing in other states that chickens freely roam the neighborhoods with no consequences? I just saw this on my nextdoor and I feel like it is not the first time I’ve heard neighbors complain about peoples pet chickens getting loose.
–Another thing that is pretty common here. Horses on the side of the road. Actually on the side of the freeway. And people riding them to work in the mornings. Oh yes, I have just about seen it all.
Share some random things you have seen on the side of the roads in your neck of the woods…or while running. Or just feel free to share something random about your day with me!

I’ve only seen roaming chickens abroad . . . not saying that this doesn’t happen in the States.
In NYC, I saw a woman on rollerblades take a dump on the street. While disgusted, I was fascinated on her leg strength that prevented her from rolling away.
We have lots of roamin chickens down here…but TEXAS often sets itself apart from ‘the states’ so makes sense 😉
A lot of Texans also think New Yorkers do not have manners so your last story makes some sense. haha. I do have some NY friends that are more polite than that lady, so I try NOT to discriminate. Have a great rest of your day Kwame!!
Hey! I’m polite . . . for the most part. Then again, I’m not a native New Yorker. *Shoot that lady probably was not a native NYCer either. 😉 While I was visiting my hometown (Va Beach), I was pleasantly surprised with how many drivers let other folks merge and with the low amount of honking.
OH, I will enjoy the rest of my day. . . I’m off to get a gin soda with a splash of cranberry. No wait, a splash of pineapple – I’m feeling tropical 😉
Must be nice! I’ll be propping my feet up and sleeping after I teach my 2nd spin class ‘happy hour’ of the day. Someone’s gotta make the big bucks around here.
Chickens are common in Georgia too. Horses less, but not a “never seen it” 😂😂 I also love clove. Especially in Fall! 🥰
YES!! I’m so ready for all things fall! State Fair of Texas down here is just around the corner. Have a great weekend, girlie!
“is it a thing in other states that chickens freely roam the neighborhoods with no consequences?”
Casting my mind back to when I subscribed to Agricultural History journal, I recall that pigs used to freely roam the streets in mediaeval London (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/270016394_Running_Amuck_Urban_Swine_Management_in_Late_Medieval_England)
Despite all this, I’m crummy lawyer. What happened to me????
I had to slow down reading this comment because I had no idea what you were talking about until I realized I talked about chickens in this post. Too funny!! The things you write early in the morning when your brain is still waking up LOL
We have wild pigs in Texas too!
