Happy Monday

Hi

How was your weekend?

Mine started off on the right foot literally with my awesome 6 miler along the DnR Canal tow path after I left work on Friday evening.

I spent Saturday being pretty lazy at first. Eventually I started to get my usual chores done. Laundry, vacuum, tidy etc. Then I caught up with a few friends on the phone for some good girl talk before heading over to Mr. SOTSS’ in the early evening. We rode our bikes 10 miles out to the beach and just took a few minutes to enjoy the sights and sounds before stopping for a quick bite and then riding our bikes back home.

So long sun. See ya tomorrow

The trip back was after the sun had set which was quite interesting. We had to keep our mouths closed so we wouldn’t eat any bugs! A firefly hit me on the forehead and then fell onto my arm. I saw the fluorescent streak flash before my eyes. It was also scary (for me because I’m afraid of the dark and a walking calamity) because I couldn’t see the path and wasn’t sure if there were bumps I needed to avoid. And I freaked out because I thought I saw people walking to the right of us but when I finally could see I realized it was a cemetery…..Um…if there were people walking I’d venture they were zombies then.

By the time we got home I needed some ice cream to collect myself. HA!

Yesterday I went for a run in the morning.

Wearing one of my favorite Brooks shirts and Under Armour bike shorts. I hardly wear shorts but when I do I swear I feel like I run faster. LOL.

Always with the sad face when I leave him. Kills me.

After work today I hit up the grocery store for some ingredients to cook. I made a huge batch of taco meat, sauteed peppers and onions and some greek chicken cutlets in the slow cooker.  I want to control what I eat a bit more carefully and possibly try and lose a few pounds. We’ll see. I’ve said this a gazillion times before.

At 8pm it was still daylight so I figured I’d take Duncan to Petco.

Oh and I discovered these awesome lollipops at CVS. This one’s root beer float flavored! IMG_3506

And in other randomness I saw this lil ladybug the other day while out on a walk with the doodle…IMG_3445

Enjoyed watching my boy sleep soundly after chasing a boatload of squirrels in Mr. SOTSS’ yard…IMG_3503

Noticed these “craberries” at the grocery store…IMG_3507

And now Duncan is chilling out with me while I complete this post and watch Ellen which I’ve been DVR’ing daily.

I’m actually struggling to stay awake. It’s 10:30pm but it feels like midnight. I think I better hit the hay.

Goodnight!

Cook any good meals lately?
