I wore Boston head (my Boston Goodr glasses) to toe (Brooks 2019 Boston Launches) for my run yesterday. I wasn’t going to be at Boston this year but I was definitely planning on our normal watching party at home. I sure missed watching it on tv yesterday but it will be so fun to watch in September. PS I am noticing more runners out than ever before these days. Anyone else seeing that where they live?
On Sunday my brother that lives a few hours away drove all the way to my house, my parents’ house and my sister’s house to heart attack our doors, leave treats on our porch and then drive home. It made ALL of our days and we were quite surprised. He left our families favorite dessert (date bars) too and they were the perfect post-run snack.
My niece wrote this heart for our door:)
I noticed Brooke was playing with her carriages a bit differently than normal and when I asked her she said it was because she had to keep them 6 feet apart. It’s going to be a big adjustment for all of us when we go back to normal life.
Skye wanted to try out the no-bangs look yesterday and she loved it because I think she felt even more like Brooke.
Another very normal day at our house. These chicks of ours are getting big and REALLY fast.
Brooke told me that she missed her grandma’s (in California) Frog Eyed Salad so she learned how to make it herself (picture before it set-up in the fridge). She is going to be a chef by the time this whole quarantine is over.
Let’s finish off today with a few tangents.
*Knox was organizing the mudroom for one of his chores and he just could not get over the fact that I have a few pairs of the same shoes (if only he knew about my stockpile of these in my closet too:) Even Knox thinks runners are a bit strange… when we find a shoe we love, we have to make sure we have enough of them!
*Not only can Andrew rewatch movies over and over but he can also re-listen to books over and over and he does that when he is getting yard work done. Does anybody else re-read or re-listen to books?
*I LOVED loved Steph Bruce’s latest post on her blog. “Progress isn’t always about seeing it. It’s about feeling it.”
*Andrew and I were talking about what it will be like to be able to call up a baby-sitter again and go out to dinner (one of our favorite hobbies) together. We will probably just sit there for a few hours, order many courses and take it all in as long as possible. We are still getting take-out from local small restaurants 1-2 times a week but it just doesn’t taste quite the same as eating it in the restaurant.
*French bread + butter + garlic + cheese + tomatoes + basil + balsamic glaze = heaven.
*I think Skye needs to take over the blog for a few days. PS she is in a band-aid stage right now and she believes the smallest ouchie deserves the biggest band-aid.
*If I haven’t convinced you yet to make Shalane’s Quinoa Salad… maybe this picture will. We made another huge batch and I am perfectly happy eating the same food over and over again until I get sick of it before switching things up ha.
Are you a fan of eating the same meal over and over again or do you want to switch things up often?
Would you rather have a simple pizza without toppings or one with a lot of toppings?
Do you ever re-listen or re-read books?
-Unless they are religious books or running books… nope!
Are you seeing more, the same or less people be active where you live?
