Another weekend has flown by and here we are at Monday again! It’s beautiful out and I don’t have a ton on the agenda, so I’m feeling good!
Today I need to finish canning peaches (a couple more batches), and harvest herbs. I have lavender (is that an herb?!), basil, and sage. I already picked the lavender since my plant partially died over the winter and it didn’t come back great this year. I hope next year will be back to full production.
For those of you interested, I found these videos on YouTube great info for harvesting and growing herbs.
Other that that still working on thank you notes for Tyrion’s party which I am severely behind on, and that’s about it!
This weekend was great and seemed to go super fast!
Saturday morning started off with three friends doing the 5k slime run down at Spokane Raceway.
I felt the Slime Run site mislead a bit about how much you were going to get slimed. I honestly didn’t want to get covered or anything, but figured it would be a bit more intense than it was. We call came prepped with our phones in Ziploc bags fuguring we would be covered in goo by the end.
It was really more like a goo smattering. Not much at all. Kinda disappointed, as were several others who walked by. They all were under the assumption that there was going to be way more sliming going on. Oh well, a couple hours with good friends and you really can’t complain all that much!
Oh, except that when we all went to pile back in my car it decided not to start. That has never happened before. I always considered my little Nissan our most reliable vehicle. Travis came down to jump it, and it started right up. Thank goodness we only live about 12 minutes away. When we got home and tried to start it again, it was already flat dead. The battery was toast. Travis had to run to the store real quick and grab a new one. And since when did a car battery start costing $150!? Sheesh!
After getting that sorted out we left in the truck to pick up more hay for my horse Nevada, who lives at my parents place. We got two ton last week, but still needed one more. The guy was super nice and the hay was great! I feel such relief that she is all set for winter now and can eat happily when all the snow comes.
Once we dropped that off and let Tyrion entertain his grandparents for a bit, we took off to my sister and brother-in-laws place for dinner and Game Of Thrones. We had watched the whole season but somehow missed episode 9, so it was a good excuse to hang out and BBQ while watching the missed episode. Can’t wait until next year and the new season. We need to find a winter show to watch now. Dexter was our go-to but now that it’s over we will be looking for a new series to get attached too.
Sunday I skipped out on church because little man was up teething until 1:30 the night before and I was a wreck. The minute he went down for his first nap I crawled back under my nice warm covers and napped as well. Then that evening my friend Christine came over and we headed out on a 10 mile run! So glad to have someone to go with. I need to get my mileage back up there again!
Two little running shadows instead of just one.
Overall I loved the time we went out. We left at 6:30pm and although we will probably head out a bit sooner next time since it was pretty dark when we finished, the weather was blissfully nice and much cooler than past runs. I have a feeling fall running is going to be my favorite. So nice to get a 10 miler under my belt with our half in 33 days and counting.
I’m off to start on my projects! Now go gulp down a large cup of coffee and make it a great day!
