Erin and Madelyn are in Colorado visiting Aunt Dee with Erin’s mom. So I’m trying to make the most of my solo time. Today, however, is a bit of a day off.
I ran a 5K this morning: 22:10 (7:09/mi) which is a personal best. Flat course, no wind, and decent weather. After I returned home, I mowed the front lawn and weeded (pic at right). Things are looking better. I’ll finish up tomorrow; by noon I was soaked, tired, and ready to quit for the day. But not before I got a little sunburned. I came in, showered, closed the windows and many of the blinds, and turned on the air. Sitting in a dark house, in the air conditioning, feeling the sunburn under my shirt reminds me of being in Florida, at Bits & Eric’s lake house or in the Keys when I lived there.
Our little homebrew club met today, and I shared some of my pale ale. Dennis poured a very nice California Common, and Jeremy and Bob shared a Samiclaus clone. Afterward, I went next door and listened to some country/folk music for about an hour. On my way out of there, I saw David Banash walking across the square. Took off to catch him before getting all my stuff buttoned up. Bad move. I dropped my cooler, which promptly opened and ejected beer bottles all over the place. Oops. At least I didn’t cut myself picking up all the broken glass.
Embarrassment aside, It was nice to catch up with David, since we’ve been in our own little worlds for the most part this summer. Of which, there’s a month left…
