It’s My Friday

In Uncategorized on August 22, 2009 at 4:12 pm

Saturdays are my Fridays. I have to work a half day, so when people say “Have a good weekend” on Friday, it really don’t mean anything to me.

They’re also the day that I ride my bike to work. This morning I wasn’t going to, we had been up late quadding in the dark with a bunch of friends, but the sun was shining and I thought I needed a challenge today, so I rode the bike. I work 5 minutes out of town so it’s a little bit of a ride, but going back home is the kicker. There’s a big hill near my house that is my nemesis. I have yet to ride up the entire hill, but today just might be the day.

Saturdays are always boring at work (it’s a good thing that it’s only a half day!) and so I logged onto Etsy and was confronted with this tornado of color: Click me. I wish I could do a screen shot of it, this Treasury is amazing. You’ll want to eat it up!

Have a good weekend!! I’m sure you’ll hear from me a little bit, I have pictures to post!

Oh, also, check these photos out! I love the one of the sunset.

…Why me?

Last night, I went for a bike ride with one of my friends, Laura. We’ve been going for rides at least a couple times a week and both really really enjoy the work out and fresh air (how I’m going to live without my bike rides in the winter, I don’t know).

We’re riding along last night, going down one of the main streets in town, but it wasn’t too busy, so we were side by side, chatting about the latest story in our lives.

A siren went off behind us.

A police siren.

“Is that for us??” Yes, it was for us. Lights, siren, action. If only there was a camera involved.  The cop was really nice, apparently stopping us because we should be single file instead of side by side…but realllllly….how bored must he have been to stop two girls on peddle bikes?!

Yeah, we laughed so hard!!

And as my friends say “Only you Kate, only you”.

Summer Lovin

In Uncategorized on June 12, 2009 at 8:37 pm

This summer is GLORIOUS! We have the best weather, especially for June! It’s just incredible. I’ve burnt like a crisp, I’m peeling like a snake, my garden is in, my flowers are flourishing, my new puppy is friggen adorable, my sleep is ruined.

Life. Is. Wonderful!

My blog, however…is suffering because of it. Sorry for my absence!

Since summer has arrived, I’ve been looking for  a new workout system. Pilates or Yoga? Bike riding or karate? It’s a toss up. Oh and throw Water Aerobic in there and it’s all messed up even more. I think I’m leaning towards Pilates with a side of bike riding in the evenings.

How is your summer going so far? I’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment on an adventure you’ve had lately!

Ps: Lesson learned this summer: Use sun screen! Arbonnesun screen because it’s naturally based, no animal bi-products, no mineral oil and it targets the RIGHT UV rays…weirdly enough, some of them out there don’t even do that!
