Not to sound like one of those annoying “life is great, everything is perfect, I fart rainbows” bloggers… but this weekend was pretty great. We didn’t do anything special at all, but I just had this really content feeling all weekend.
When I got home Friday after my track workout, D wanted to go grab something to eat, so me and the dogs rode with him. It was a really pleasant evening, so we stopped by the park to walk the dogs for a bit. Usually when I’m walking the dogs, it’s at a brisk pace with me keeping them on task, but Friday we just made one slow, leisurely lap around the 0.75-mile loop, enjoying the beautiful weather and letting the dogs stop every few feet to sniff. It just set the pace for a relaxing weekend.
Saturday morning, started off earlier than I’d have liked thanks to three STAAAARVING animals. But if they hadn’t got me out of bed, I’d have missed this.
Besides, once all the furry bellies were full, I ended up falling back asleep on the couch anyway. D went to the shop, so it was just me and the critters the rest of the day. I was kind of in domestic mode, and we got lots done around the house. C.C. even helped me fold and put away towels.

I texted my friend Suzan (the one I trade out dog-sitting with) to see if she wanted to take our dogs to the water since this may be our last weekend warm enough to do it, but she was stuck teaching a Common Core workshop (I can’t think of a worse way to spend a Saturday! haha) and couldn’t go. So me and my two went to the state park at the lake not far from here, but that was pretty much a bust. The water where they could have waded into the lake was sooo nasty and stinky. There’s no way they were getting in that mess, so we just walked around the lake and enjoyed the day again.

And on our way home, we saw this sign! I only caught a glimpse of it when I passed it the first time, so I had to turn around and go back to make sure I read it right. We’re getting a brewery!!!!

During my conversation with Suzan earlier in the day, she mentioned that she had almost called me to see if I could keep her dog that night because after she got out of her workshop she was only going to be home long enough to let Gnash out before she had to go to another event that evening and felt bad for leaving him so much that day. I told her that we had no plans and to please bring him over. He’s such a good boy, and he and my dogs are wonderful together. They play and wrestle until they just crash.
After they’d worn each other out and settled down, me and D went out to dinner and had a nice night together–something we’ve had far too few of lately.
Sunday I slept till almost 8(!!!), which means it was already full sun and warm, so I decided to wait until the evening to do my long run. That domestic mode I was in carried right on over into Sunday, so most of the day was spent doing house things including lots of time in the kitchen. I was already tired when I started running at 5, so I didn’t expect much, but it turned out to be a great seven miles!
And to top it off, I found out it’s National Beer Day! Who am I to refuse to celebrate that?! What a perfect way to end a perfect weekend!!
