Greetings! How was your weekend?The weather in Nashville has been gorgeous for the past few days. Perfect for running!On Saturday I headed out for my usual weekend long run which I’ve kept around 10-ish miles for the past few months. Since I’m not training for anything, this feels like the perfect “long” distance to me. I have no idea how I ever ran 15-22 milers when marathon training… isn’t it funny how your definition of “long” can change so quickly?
I ran down Broadway street to see what was happening at the honky tonks. Answer: Nothing, because it was 8 a.m.
Downtown Nash is the land of cranes! Lots of new stuff coming to our city. The Nashville’s Business Report’s crane watch is one of my favorite things to track lately. Ten miles, done! Love when I can perfectly measure out a route in my head.Post-run breakfast. This “Jammin’ Lemon Ginger” tea has been my jam lately. And dinner! We made a number of fun dishes over the weekend but one of my favorites was last night’s chicken pot pie from Cook Smarts.I slow-cooked the chicken so that it was nice and tender. Other fillings: Carrots, peas, celery, and onion. Plus a splash of sherry! This Kitchn post gives a quick overview on the joys of cooking with sherry. Side dish was a simple kale salad. But let’s talk about what’s on the bottom of the dish!A new table runner! Highlight of my weekend was an hour-long adventure inside Jo-Ann’s fabric store. I stocked up on this sturdy, off-white fabric and spent Sunday afternoon stitching up an XL (105-inch) table runner for our long, skinny table. With a little blue stripe for pizzazz I have matching fabric for napkins, but those will have to wait until this weekend!
Last note of the day: Anyone out there subscribe to consumer reports? They recently featured an in-depth review on home treadmills and ellipticals if you’re interested.Here’s a sneak peek at the winners! I just need to monetize my table linen hobby so that I can make $3,800 and buy one of these bad boys.Off for a Monday morning run. See you on the flip side.
- Do you have a treadmill at home? If so, what kind?
- Locals: Best honky tonk bar in Nashville?
- Table runners: Do you have them? Buy them often? Think they’re a waste of money?
