This is Dragon speaking. I promised yesterday that I would do this, so I’m using my new speech recognition software to do this post and I only have to insert the pictures. It feels kind of weird to speak my thoughts instead of typing them out. It also feels kind of funny talking out loud to nobody.
I have to remember to speak the punctuation.
It was a cool and rainy day today. I was supposed to do my run this morning, but then it looked like this outside:
Instead, I made a quick breakfast. Well, maybe not so quick. I used my coconut flour/protein waffle batter and instead of waffles, I put it in a dish and popped it into the toaster oven.
I topped it with some peanut flour and some blueberry jam. This came out good, but maybe a little on the dry side.
Work was pretty busy today and I got a lot of work done early. Pretty soon it was time for lunch. We had gotten these chicken sausages at the store the other day.
I like that they are all natural and the chickens appear to be treated well. Normally, we get the Apple chicken sausage, but John wanted to try the Italian ones.
And what goes well with sausage? Potato chips. We actually usually have these in the house and I tend to nibble on them here and there. One of those things that doesn’t end up on the blog. (Dragon understands the word blog. )
The rest of the afternoon went by pretty fast. I made our lattes today.
This is my Monet cup. I got this at the Chicago Art Institute when we used to live there. One of my favorite paintings is the haystacks, which is on this cup.
After I finished up work for the day, it was time to go out for my run since the rain had stopped. This was week eight of couch to 5K. This was a warm-up then 28 min. of running. I have to say it was a horrible run. As soon as I started, it just felt awful. The whole time I was running, I couldn’t wait for it to be done. It seemed to take forever. When I ran on Saturday, my leg felt bad that day too. I thought that was because I had already biked that day, but I rested yesterday so my legs should have felt fine. I was getting a little upset while I ran partly because I just wanted to finish and partly because I didn’t want to do any more. While I was cooling down, I felt myself get teary. I thought I was okay until I came inside and John said it looked like I had been crying. I just wasn’t enjoying it at all. I don’t know if it is worth it to keep trying or not. That may have been my last run. I’ll have to see how I feel on Thursday.
Anyway, I was glad to be finished with that and to have gotten some exercise with no rain. Yay! I got out an oldie but goodie for dinner. Clam strips!
I love the clam strips!
So, I have to say Dragon does a pretty good job. I like how it capitalizes the word Dragon. It does that automatically. I think this software has an ego. He keeps up pretty well with natural speaking, but I do tend to want to stop and slowdown. I’m not sure how productive I will be for work, but if I can at least save my wrists with e-mail and blog posting, that will be good. Isn’t it weird to know that I didn’t type this post?
John was home tonight, so that means coffee out! The little café up the street didn’t make it, so it’s off to Starbucks we go. (Dragon knows Starbucks LOL). If only I could put in emoticons with Dragon.
I had an Americano. Decaf. Hiding behind my cup is an Apple fritter. John and I shared that. He is holding up one of his poker books. Normally we both read at Starbucks, but I didn’t bring a book. So we actually had to talk.
Dragon signing off. I feel like this is some secret superspy codename.
