Random Monday

I left work early Friday for a Doctor's appt. It didn't take long so I was home earlier than normal ready to get in the pool. I put on my suit walked outside & this started.
We've had a lot of rain lately. Luckily, it didn't last long. Our niece & nephew from Texas were visiting for the afternoon & Dean's little cousin.
They had a good time.
I enjoyed some wine.

Saturday we bought Dean a new truck.
It's really nice. Dean's truck was 9 yrs. old & it was just a basic truck with no extras. He normally gets me "the good car".  This one has all sorts of extras & a ton of room! I'm glad for once he got something good too.
That is the calories I burned on my 8 MILE RUN yesterday. The last half mile was tough but I did it. 1:32 was my time. Not great but I did it. I keep telling myself that. I rewarded myself with a nap. HA! Then my parents came over & we had lunch & floated around the pool. The floating was interrupted by rain. sigh.

As usual the weekend went by crazy fast. Today is a rest day so I had some extra time this morning. I went to the drive thru at Starbucks for a green tea. When I got to the window I was told my tea was free today because I'd been line longer than 5 mins. I've never heard of this but it was a great way to start a Monday!
Now if only the rest of the day goes as good as my morning I'll be a happy camper!!!



  1. Congrats to you and your husband on the new vehicle! :)

  2. Oh...your pool looks just awesome! Wish you lived closer! And good for you on your 8 mile run! Have you ever run a marathon?

    I just read an interesting article on green tea. It has high concentrates of plant antioxidants that blocks your body ability to digest fat. A study showed that if you drink a minimum of 2 cups of green tea for 12 weeks, you will lose 3 lbs. without changing your diet. So...I mixed up a pitcher of green iced tea and I am going for it!!


  3. Love the color on the new truck. Congrats, to you and hubby!!

  4. Great for Dean, hope ya'll enjoy it for years to come. We ordered a new fifth wheel today so I am a happy girl.

    That's a lot of calories to burn, you should be proud of yourself. We walk 5 miles Mon-Fri, and I only burn 320 calories. That's just not enough!!

  5. What a great way to spend the afternoon. I haven't been swimming in ages!!! Congrats to your hubby on his new truck and to you for running 8 miles!!!!!!! I would probably drop over dead if I had to RUN eight walking... I can do that! LOL
    Have a great week!

  6. I would give anything to have that pool. My dream is to retire to Florida and finally have my own pool. My parents had one (after I left home of course) and it was so nice to be able to just float around whenever they wanted.

    8 miles, you are a rock star! I can't run. It jars my head. I have never done the running thing but my daughter started recently and she did almost 5 miles yesterday. She was so proud.

    The truck looks nice. I am trying to put off getting a new car around here for a while, love having no payment...but my car has more miles than we have ever had before, so fingers are crossed!

  7. What a fantastic way to devote a special afternoon. I've not been going swimming within ages!!! Winner to your husband on his / her new pickup also to anyone pertaining to jogging 8 kilometers!!!!!!!
