Got a nice 10 mile run in yesterday. It's definitely taking me some time to adjust to the heat when I sleep in...I guess I could just get up earlier. We will see how that goes! I've been enjoying sleeping in past 4:30 am!
Ash and I had plans to meet for lunch at 12:30, but she had something come up and needed to meet at 11:30. She texted me and asked if that would work. I was still about 4 miles out from finishing my run, but I told her as long as she didn't that I'd be gross, I could meet earlier! That's how you know you're good friends. ; ) I rinsed off super quick, then threw a hat on my super sweaty (gross, sorry) hair, and headed to Galloway! Lunch was awesome (I had a Caesar salad with tuna), and I loved catching up with her! She recently hurt her back, so send positive thoughts her way, please! The only downside to lunch - getting Tabasco in my eye. Ugh. That hurt.
After lunch, it was home to edit! I decided to do my editing outside so I could get a little sun. We are going to the lake this weekend and I don't want to fry! Also, I just love summer.
Had a little snack! Can't stop eating cherries...
This one wanted to be inside...
Before I knew it, I had been outside for 2 hours...time to move to some shade! I didn't get too burnt, just one little spot on my leg. It was just such a gorgeous day!
I don't know why this picture is so blurry and I don't want to focus on negative things, but I am super disappointed in some produce I got from Price Cutter this week. I literally had to throw out over half of our brussel sprouts. They were covered in bugs, like, inside the veggies. Sick. I kept peeling layer after layer off and it wasn't getting better. I was not happy.
This is what I managed to salvage out of a huge bag full. Definitely not enough for Jake and I to share.
Luckily, we had some mushrooms in the fridge, so I added those to the tiny amount of brussels we had. Topped it all with garlic, ghee, black pepper, and a little balsamic vinegar. They turned out pretty good! Still bummed about throwing away all that bad stuff, though.
Veggie burger patties, cauliflower fried rice, veggie mix, and a roll for Jake.
This seemed appropriate. Unfortunately, we didn't have wine last night. Bummer.
We took the girls on a walk last night. These are a few of our attempts at family pictures. I think Jake has some better ones on his phone. Aspen just wanted to give kisses and Lu was probably distracted by a squirrel.
Lu is now distracted by a leaf and Aspen is mad about not being able to give kisses.
Our walk wore the little one out. We got to sit down and finish a movie we started the other night. It takes us two to three nights to finish a movie...we just can't stay up that late! But I'm okay with it. We watched Furious 7. So good!
We also had a little whiskey to celebrate Jake's new kit! He will be wearing an AWESOME Kuat kit for his mountain bike races in Leadville over the summer. He's SO excited about it!
This morning it was a quick breakfast before yoga! Today is my no run day, so I'm going to work around the house and try to organize some of the stuff I brought home from my classroom/go through a pile of stuff in the garage. I have one more manuscripts that I would like to edit today, so that's on my to-do list, too. Plus some baking for an engagement party on Saturday for Scottie and Brandi!
I think we might go out for dinner tonight, then it'll be an early night. Jake is running trail tomorrow and I might join. He has a 4 hour workout to do, which I am not doing (woof), but I might join for half of it. We are going to the lake this weekend and I can't wait!!! I hope the rain holds off and we get some sunshine, but even if it rains, we will have a good time.
Enjoy the long weekend!!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
