I forgot just how good this is for a post run snack.
Blueberries and ice cold water.
I should stop eating them, but I can’t….so good.
Sometimes you know a run is going to suck. Cramps, rock gut, lethargy, sore boobs, humidity, lack of training, hot sun, dehydration.
But, you know that you need to “break the seal” so to speak. Get your leg up over the side of the wagon. Get that run in that will spur the motivation for all your next runs.
And then you have a run….that isn’t so bad. Slow, but decent.
You even smile a little when two 9 year olds pass you on a four wheeler and the one on the back turns to you and has a big ole smile on his face. And one of them does a legit “woo-hoo” because four wheeling with a friend is so much fun.
And you enjoy the heat from the sun on your skin. You enjoy the sweat dripping down your face, in to your eyes…and oh, the burning!! Water…I need water.
Oh, that took a turn ;)
If you haven’t run yet today and are on the fence about it, just go out and do it :)
Between trying to recoup from traveling and my period starting, I feel either like I am going to pass out standing up or that I am going to eat ALL the things.
And the internet is really slow today, so I pretty much just want to stab myself in the eye.
So ya know…that is what is going on in my world :P
Leftovers from the weekend trip.
That is more bacon than I usually eat in one sitting, but I just heated up everything and I’ll be fine ;) It would be hard to find someone that didn’t think more bacon was better :P
I haven’t eaten the coffee cake quite yet. I don’t think I will be able to hold off long even though I am full from the bacon and eggs. I had two pieces last night and still wanted more! Darn good coffee cake.
The picture doesn’t really do it justice. You will just have to come over and I can make you some.
The coffee is LavAzza. My friend Joe gave me a couple bags while I was in Chicago. I don’t think I had had it before. This is the medium roast and it is really good. I think I will like the dark roast even more.
I am listening to this song on repeat. I hadn’t listened to James Blunt in a while and actually heard this song while standing in line for a ride at Michigan’s Adventure ;) I still remember when I was listening to this song of his on repeat. Or let’s not forget about this one! I just love his voice and the way he sings. I had kind of forgot about him. Sorry, James.
Nate leaves for Florida on Friday afternoon. He will be there for a couple weeks. I am going to miss the guy, but I am excited for him to spend some time with his mom, little brother and the rest of his family there.
I am working from the old nursery today. I really should use this room more often. No one else is using it right now and it has it’s own private bathroom. And there is a decent size table to lay all my crap out on.
My running date with the kids didn’t really work out last night. The track was being used by the football team til 8 o’clock. I guess I could have tried to find somewhere else. Oh well. I got caught up on some more cleaning and ya know…made coffee cake after Charly, Grammie and Papa went and picked the berries for it ;)
I was egg-sauce-ted last night. I think I am still trying to find some normalcy after all the traveling last week. Hopefully soon.
I did bring running gear with me today. Look at all my optimism. This may be more than a bacon and coffee cake blog today!
Quit slacking and get to work!
I’m doing ok.
A few pictures from when Charly was at camp. These are pics that the camp put up on their website. Charly took a disposable camera with her, but there are still pictures left to take on it. We will get it developed eventually. Who knows what kind of pictures she took :P
She had a BLAST. Grammie picked her up from camp and Charly asked if she would pre register her for the full week next year that day. Grammie had already done it ;) So, she is already excited for that.
I loved hearing all the stories. We went through all 400+ photos on the website together and she told me what was going on, which kids she hung out with, etc. And even a boy she had a crush on ;)
Crafts, games, pool time, singing, dancing, and much more. I don’t think she missed us at all ;) I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Pictures from the clean up we did at the church a little while ago.
We got a lot done, but there is still more to do. We got three trees and two bushes cut down and hauled away. And we did a lot of trimming and weeding. It was a nice work out!
Clearly, Peyten had a blast. For being able to hang out with the “youth” and between wheelbarrows and golf carts…she was set for the evening :)
I am eating oatmeal and sipping on coffee. It is about the best thing ever right now.
Since I have been home yesterday afternoon, I have:
And now I sit here at my computer and it is work/plow time. Which is starting to get busy…so let me get to it ;)
I hope you all had a great weekend!
I have pictures to share and stories to tell. But, I don’t have the gumption to put anything together tonight.
It was a great weekend and we made a lot of memories. Four out of five of these kids will be gone next year and that makes me sad! But, we can enjoy them for one last school year for sure.
I forgot to post this yesterday.
They taste pretty darn good. Just like I remember, with just a hint of the garlic and jalapeño.
For sure will try this again once these are gone. Might be able to do even better ;)
Good food. Great company :)
It’s a beautiful day for a lunch date in South Haven! :)
My layover in Atlanta…departed at gate B and had to get to gate E. Completely on the other side of the airport, of course. The first plane was a little late and the second plane ended up boarding late. So, it all worked out fine. But, I was definitely rushing considering they were supposed to be starting the boarding before I even got off the first plane!
Let’s have a coffee date!
Oops! Forgot to publish. Now I am on the train.
Oh, I got on the wrong train….but, eh…I will get there eventually! lol
I just have to go to Gary and wait for the next train. Crap. Now I am going to have that song in my head all day….Gary, Indiana…Gary, Indiana!
