Just popping in to say hello and post a kinda quick update –
Summer has arrived in the Pacific Northwest and it is quite simply beautiful. While I am in love with the area in which I live and do not mind the rainy days, I am overjoyed when the sun pays us a long overdue visit and rejoice when it decides to stick around for a bit. Portland, Oregon on a sunny day is undeniably exquisite!
I still can’t believe its July already though.
Summer started with the oldest having foot surgery. He handled it well.
And even enjoyed and took advantage of the recovery period….
Cast is off now and he’s in a boot so its almost over. Yes. I’m happy about that.
I’m getting my second tat on the 18th! Woot woot! I’m excited. It was supposed to be done at the end of May but with my son’s birthday and my stepdaughters birthday at that time I could not afford to get it done.
I’m signing up for another marathon because I know I can do better than I did a few weeks ago. The Boring Marathon will be September14th and I’m pretty excited about it. Its new, its small and its in Boring!
Of course I need to pull my eating habits out of the toilet or I’ll find myself doing worse than Vancouver. I also may need to end my relationship with IPA’s. But only until after the run is done!
Going glamping with my girlfriends in a few weeks. I don’t camp even though being outdoors is my favorite thing (next to sleeping) but I can glamp in s cabin with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances that sits right on the Metolious River with the best of them.
That’s the cabin we’re staying in.
One of my girlfriends insists I will put waders on and cast a fishing pole out into the river on this trip. I think she is mistaken. I will let you know who turns out to be right.
Blue Eyes’ 30th high school reunion is the weekend I’m glamping. He’s a little disappointed I won’t be attending with him. Honestly I think I am too. But its not like we’re married….. Oh, wait. Scratch that.
Overall summer is looking great! July is good. August I turn 48. September I run another Marathon and the kids go back to school. Awesome summer stuff right there.
For now I will just enjoy the sun and try not to melt… This is me melting as I drove home on Monday. It was 100 with no wind.
Hope your summer plans are bright and happy…. 🙂
