Hey there! Hope you’re having a relaxing holiday.
Our stay-cation has been going splendidly. It was nice to sleep in and go out for a lazy run this morning…Not too lazy or too late, though. It could reach 90 degrees by noon, so I made sure to get out there on the early side!Pretty uneventful jog. Sometimes I miss the action of the DC streets now that I live in the more pleasant outskirts of the city, but luckily I have a collection of street furniture photos to comfort me in times of need.
Living in Court House has its perks, though. Like having a farmer’s market 0.2 miles from our apartment!I stopped by on Saturday after my long run and loved chatting to all the vendors and looking at their beautiful bounty.I ended up buying some jalepeno cheddar bread from Upper Crust bakery…As well as some local bacon from Smith Meadows farm. I don’t know what got into me!
This was our first time trying “fancy” bacon from the farmers market, and we thought it was pretty dang good.I don’t know how to explain it, but it tastes more meaty than the bacon I’ve bought at the grocery store. It tasted like pork, not like bacon. If that makes sense.Yum!
Now that we’ve covered bacon, we might as well move onto beer.Anthony is on a pretty awesome touch rugby team. They play on Saturday mornings, but also got together for some non-rugby fun this past Saturday night. Fun fact: Of everyone sitting at the table, only three of us were American. This sport and this city really bring people together!
Enjoy your day off!
