Happy National Back To Work Day! (If you live in the US) I hope everyone had a nice Labor Day weekend. I enjoyed the long weekend, and as usual it seemed to fly by.
I kicked things off with a tough, muggy long run
on the Huckleberry Trail. I cannot wait for the humidity of summer to end and the fall weather to begin! Barry and I ran a few errands while we were in town, and then headed home.
I spent Saturday afternoon cleaning the house. Then we watched Hokies play Alabama (they lost 35-10, boo), and caught the end of the Clemson/Georgia game. The Hokies may have lost, but they did have a beautiful 78 yard touchdown by Edmunds. And then there was this:
Clearly the Alabama fans were not expecting us to score at all. The look on that guy’s face made my day!
On Sunday I slept in and then had a low key morning. My in-laws stopped by to visit in the afternoon and we went out to late a lunch/early supper and then stopped by a nearby dairy farm to see their new free stall barn. They got a resin cast Holstein cow for looks/advertisement, and it was still in the cardboard wrapping.
Barry and I spent Sunday evening watching a bit of TV and then we played Gin Rummy (Barry won). I didn’t get my 3 mile recovery run in until 9 PM, and ran on my treadmill since it was dark. Then I didn’t get to sleep until midnight, which is why I don’t run that late in the evening.
On Labor Day, my bonus day, I slept in again. When I got up, I went for a 5 mile run on the roads around our house.
I spent the rest of the morning picking up around house and doing boring grown-up things like paying the bills. I also caught up on blogs and then got a massage in the afternoon! It was my second-ever massage and it was glorious. My sore back is feeling much better (no injury, just chronic back pain ever since I hurt it last August). That evening I played with the dogs, made more ham & cheese quiche
for this week, and watched 3 quarters of Monday Night Football, college-style… also known as the Florida State/Pitt game.
Today I celebrated National Back To Work Day by going back to work (duh). I overhead a very random conversation in a McDonald’s parking lot, where I had stopped to use the restroom. The conversation took place between a lady making her way to her car and a McDonald’s employee. Clearly they knew each other. Here’s how it went:
Lady making her way to her car: “No man. No child. I’m a free woman!”
McD’s employee: “Is that what you’s talkin’ about, you goin to party?”
Lady: “Yea! Imma do what I want!”
McD’s employee: “Well what’s your limitation?”
Lady: “Ain’t no limitations!”
That final proclamation was made as the lady walked backwards to her car and she thrust her hands into the air as she shouted it. At that point, I had made it across the parking lot and was headed inside, so if the conversation proceeded any further I didn’t hear it.
What did you do with your extra day off?
Do you have trouble getting to sleep when you exercise late in the evening?
As you probably noticed, I discovered an online collage maker! If you use collages on your blog, what app or online resource do you use?
Overheard any random conversations lately?
