Saturday came with way more sunshine than anticipated. My little potted plants finally go to dry out a bit from the continuous rain of the past week.
I met Kari at the gym and she motivated me to run for the first time in almost a month. I was able to run 4 miles out of nowhere. We then when in search of cheap paperback books at the local library sale. There were so many people and I was a bit disappointed in the book selection. However if you were in the need of VHS there must have been over a 1,000 to pick from. Clearly, most people have advanced in their technology.
The evening was capped off with our Connecticut blogger meet up in North Haven. We dined at the lovely Olive Garden. When are they ever NOT packed? Unknowingly it was Yale's graduation weekend, making it hard to find anywhere to go without a crowd.
Meet Kim, Kari, Kat, Molly, and Katie. All of our blogs take a different spin on life, running, food, family, and happiness. I had a great time getting to know everyone a bit better and in REAL life.
Katie was even sweet enough to bring us each a little something special, her favorite new scent from Yankee candle. Come on, you have to get along with a Yankee candle fan.
We let our waitress in a on the secret that most of us had never met. Thank goodness our group was not the awkward silent bunch.
Cheers to a great evening!
Today Mr. J left me for basically the whole day to go golfing. Let to my own devices I did what any good wife would do. I cleaned, shopped, and baked.
Cleaning included bathrooms, floors, kitchen, and some laundry. Yep, I think I might deserve a reward.
Then came some shopping. First off was some fruits and veggies I forgot at the grocery store yesterday. Then once home I just might have explored, Amazon, DSW, Etsy, and Keurig.com. You have to love the Internet!
Next, I made a batch of new cookies. I have had this recipe for a few weeks now. It has been calling my name. Thank goodness I answered. Carrot oatmeal cookies coming up tomorrow. They are delicious!
Enjoy the rest of Sunday, I am off to prepare supper.
