What a weekend!

Hot, Hot, Hot. It is SO hot in Kentucky right now, so what have we been doing? Lazing around our house being thankful for air conditioning and eating Dove Bars. Mmmm. Well, I ate a Dove Bar tonight, tomorrow night I'm supposed to run one of my last two runs before A Midsummer Night's Run on Saturday. We'll see how that goes. We had a pretty busy weekend, I worked all day Saturday--as usual --but met a girl from Texas, who currently lives in Chicaco, who shared some old friends of mine, it's crazy. Read all about our chance encounter at her blog. It's pretty amazing what a small world we live in. After work I finally finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I had pretty much abandoned Pete the past few nights, I would come home from work, change clothes, and start reading. Pete --wonderful as always--made dinner Thursday and Saturday night, and didn't mind at all when I scarfed it down to return to my reading chair. It was a good book, I found it to be emotionally exhausting, and now I'm a little sad that the series is over and we won't have any more adventures at Hogwarts.
Sunday morning we woke up early. Why you might ask? Because Sunday is long run day and I had a six mile morning ahead of me. I did it!! I ran six miles --I even got TWO blisters --truly the sign of a real runner, the need for Body Glide. After our run we came home and made a nice breakfast --Pete made himself some apple cinnamon waffles, and I had two Egg Beaters scrambled over an english muffin with strawberries and blackberries on the side. That's right --we have awesome breakfasts at our house --that's why Amy Dickinson calls it Spa Crawford. Well, that and the high thread count on our sheets. The rest of our day was pretty relaxed, lots of cleaning and laundry, a trip to Petsmart, etc. We closed out our evening with a game of Scrabble while watching Brothers and Sisters on TV.

Sounds like a fun way to beat the heat.

Stay cool!
