I’m home after spending 5 days with Mr. SOTSS and his girls down in Williamsburg, Virginia.
The highlights of the trip included:
I’m still blaming the heat but I haven’t been feeling very “bloggy” lately. So here’s a bunch of randomness, and of course a bunch of Duncan photos.
and I’ll get a 4th one in this weekend!
Oh and Chester got a bath outside on the deck.
I’m enjoying a little more cuddle time with him today because tomorrow I’m going on a road trip with Mr. SOTSS and his girls. I can’t wait!
Glistening….shvitzing…..sweating….whatever you want to call it I’ve been doing a whole lot of it lately.
This morning I went for a run at 8:30am.
I was up at 6:30 but when I looked at the weather it was basically going to be within a degree or two of each other for both time slots and really does it make a difference if it’s 83 or 85 degrees and 85% or 87% humidity? Not worth rushing out the door. So I had my coffee and toast and took my time futzing around the house for a while before finally getting out the door.
Interestingly I didn’t feel as affected as I did during yesterday’s run. Maybe it was the bun. 😉 Yesterday I had to take many walk breaks.
The intense heat and humidity has left the weather unstable and we’ve had some crazy storms leaving rainbows as the passed. I love rainbows!
I’m taking a little coffee break and watching some Olympic volleyball and thought I’d fill you in on what’s been going on with me over the last few days.
Well, Duncan has been as lazy as lazy can be. I guess he’s just giving that expression “dog days of summer” true meaning. I can’t help but smile at him though. He’s got it so easy.
I went for a run on Saturday. It was a very “blue” run.
In the evening I put on my photographer hat and shot a 50th wedding anniversary.
Sunday I spent with my boyfriend’s family for a small get together to celebrate his youngest’s 11th birthday. The cake must have “shifted in flight” and ended up looking like an Alice In Wonderland cake being all lopsided but it sure did taste good and nobody cared about the presentation.
We all laughed and tried to rescue it from the box with multiple spatulas. I spent my obligatory time with the adults having adult conversation and then I snuck away to chew gum and practice blowing bubbles with Mr. SOTSS’ oldest daughter. She just learned this fine craft thanks to her dad’s fine instruction. We’re going to petition to have it become an olympic sport for the 2020 Olympics so we have 4 years to practice
Yesterday I had to run an errand in the afternoon and found myself near the boardwalk so I took a quick 45 min walk and enjoyed the sunshine. Of course there I was walking toward the Verrazano Bridge and found myself feeling the pangs of the NYC Marathon.
I am not running it this year or next year. But there’s a part of me that wants to do the 9+1 next year so that I can qualify to run in 2018. We’ll see. I’m barely getting through my 4 mile runs these days.
Later on in the evening i took Duncan for a walk. We went to a park we haven’t been to in months. It was a nice change of pace for both of us
This afternoon I struggled through 4 hot mid-afternoon miles.
Well, I better get back to work. I’d like to be wrapped up before primetime so I can watch the Olympics….women’s gymnastics!
Have you ever run the NYC Marathon? If not, do you want to?
Who’s ready for the fall weather? ME!!!!
