This past weekend G and I spent the entire weekend together and weren't, completely, at each others throats so I think thats a good sign :) Started off the weekend with a short run (moved verrrry slowly), dinner, walked down to the main drag for some asian styled dessert and then topped off the night with a movie (10pm showing I might add - felt way cool). Saturday we actually slept it! It was a miracle, when I discovered it was 10 am I couldn't believe it. My internal clock typically has me dragging myself out of bed by 9 am the latest. What was suppose to be a cheap, relaxing weekend turned into a slightly expensive/stressful one. On our way to Walden pond, G's car started to act funny. So we made a pit stop at Sears and came to find out the battery died, right then and there in the parking lot. I was reminded of the goodness of people when as we sat there trying to figure out a solution to our problem a car pulled up asking if we needed help; not knowing what the exact problem was we politely said no. We headed into Sears to find some tools and some stranger overheard our convo and offered his services. Being a mechanic we accepted his offer and before we knew it he had taken out our old battery and installed a new one. Crazy! It really is amazing how kind and generous people are. Over and over again I find myself in awe. Lately, during this upsetting and chaotic time in my life people have truly shown me what compassion is all about. I am so grateful :0)
So we continued our voyage to Walden pond, found a place to plant ourselves and finally found some relaxation! That is until little black bugs continued to incessantly drop on our blanket, inevitably leaving me with the heebie jeebies :-/
Next up was dinner with Cully Wully and his girlfriend Lauren (Cully Wully = Cullen my lil brother). We made pizza, walked down for an ice cream cone and ended the evening with an episode from Pillars of the Earth; a novel by Ken Follet that was recently made into a mini series. The movie is good but man oh man, if you want a thrilling/adventerous/love story you must buy the book. I promise, you won't be disappointed!
Sunday was spent GeoCaching (finding treasures in the woods!), great way to spend a couple hours. Check it out, http://www.geocaching.com/about/default.aspx and was followed by a short run and a quick peak into Payless which surprised me with some of their fall shoes. Some pretty cute flats! Lastly, I started organizing picutures. Found some real keepers...
