The fact that I cared for this plant and it is healthy and beautiful makes this tomatoes even sweeter.

Notes: current

Yes, today on my 17K walk I have seen this scene: two guys in red shirts were caring a white sofa through the park, and a boy in white ran around them.

Below is a simple list of my more significant runs and walks (those much longer than 10K) in the last months of 2017, in kilometers (km, or K), starting with the most recent ones:

  • December: 17, 9, 9, 12, 9, 9, 8, 9, 7, 8, 10, 9, 7, 10
  • November: 10, 11, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 10, 10,11.

I do not count those under 5K.

It looks like I was not making my usual former 10K! I did not track the distance during the runs - it interrupts my audio-books, and I prefer to look at it later - and assumed that the distance I measured earlier was enough. Now I need to run about 1 km further to add 2K and make sure I make over 10 km (6.2 miles). There are a few days left in December, so maybe I could add a few 10s in my list.

Short after an unusually early run today I measured my heart rate, oxigen and stress levels, and have chosen my mood - happy. And then I have noticed I was apparently quite stressed :)

Fruit Plate Airplane

When I need to fly, I always try to request a fruit plate or a vegan dish of some kind, or at least vegetarian, even though I am unlikely to eat most of it.

This year I got lucky on my way to Europe with the fruit on a Lufthansa flight, and it made the trip more pleasant.

I found a very big papaya in a local growers store, around 13 inches long. And it was good too.

It seems to be a grapefruit season, so I've been buying them in big bags and making daily juice out of three large grapefruits. It takes a couple of minutes with this simple tool - I used to have one made of stainless steel - but the hard plastic works well too.
Grapefruit juice is so delicious, make some!

Today I went for a short run,  five kilometers, first time after many days of rain. My heart rate (61 bpm) and SpO2 measurements are good.

Albert Schweitzer

A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help. 


 A tree is a plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species. Trees tend to be long-lived, some reaching several thousand years old. Trees have been in existence for 370 million years.

A variety of plant species have independently evolved a woody trunk and branches to compete for sunlight. In more general sense, tall palms, tree ferns, bananas and bamboos are also trees. The roots branch out under the ground to anchor the tree and to extract moisture and nutrients from the soil. Above ground, the branches usually bear leaves, which capture light. 

Trees reduce erosion and moderate the climate. Trees and forests provide a habitat for many species of animals and plants. Some trees provide edible fruit Apple
