Hope you enjoyed your long weekend! I think that ALL weekends should be three days. It’s the perfect amount of time to fit in all the fun and chores needed after a work week
I want to start this post with an announcement:
Lots of cards and games happening this past weekend. We headed to my parents’ lake house with my whole fam, including Anthony’s parents. Saturday was a little overcast but Sunday was beautiful!We sat on the dock for most of the weekend but did get up once or twice to move our legs. Don’t you love when little changes make a big difference in your run? For example, they finally replaced the wood on this bridge. For years I’d been waiting to fall straight through and now I can run without fearing for my life. The bridge, last year:My other favorite mini route changes are when they put in sidewalks on sidewalk-less streets. And when they add a pedestrian stoplight to an intersection. Oh, and obviously street furniture always jazzes up my routes. In case anyone was wondering.
Back to the run, though. Anthony and I covered about four miles along the forest-y trails. I’ll never know the exact mileage because my poor little Garmin can’t read the satellites through all these trees.Post-run feast on the dock:And a voyage on the water! Using your arms to propel you is a lot tougher than using your legs BTW. We came back from the lake late Sunday night so that we had time for a full day of housework, chores, and errands on Monday. We had an empty fridge and a mountain of ironing to tackle! I was mostly in charge of the food:After a few days of tacos, barbecue, and burgers, something light and soupy sounded good. I settled on an old favorite: chicken posole!All the credit for the original recipe goes to Food Network, the credit for me being able to cook it while taking a two-hour nap (not on the chore list, sorry Anthony) goes to my slow cooker, and the credit for that perfectly diced cilantro goes to my mother-in-law Time to get back in the swing of things. See you tomorrow!
