I’m so freakin’ mellow. We’ve done a lot in the past 3 days and I’m ready for bed now.
D came home Friday afternoon, so to keep him up, we went looking for a geocache. We didn’t find it (but no one has and the owner couldn’t even find it when he went looking for it). We ended up with soaking feet, but laughing our asses off at our attempts to stay kinda dry. We eventually gave in and walked through a stream a few times. Then we came home and D managed to stay awake until 7:50. That’s not bad considering he had been up for over 36 hours at that point.
Saturday we meant to go biking but it was blustery and rainy. So we went to the Eddie Bauer Outlet and got our summer wardrobes updated. A lot of the clothes there are really too big for D and I, but when we do find something it’s a deal. With the additional 25% off coupon from the entertainment book, we ended up paying about 1/3 of the retail price for what we got. The deal of the day? A pair of wool pants for D for work, originally $148, 70% off then 25% off for a total of $33.30. Sweet! I got some new shorts and some very different styled shirts for me.
Today was gorgeous so we worked in the garden this morning, then had lunch on the patio and realised we really need a patio set. So we set off to Canadian Tire and got a decent but cheap set with a umbrella and set it up. That was followed by lounging and reading while drinking juice and we were very happy. Then our friend N came by and we went biking. 21.5 kms later I’m up to 96.8 for the year. Still in London. I will get to France! I swear!
I have started an excel spreadsheet to keep track of the miles. We’ll have to wait on other tracking implements.
In knitting news I ripped out the monkey sock on 2.25 needles. I was about to start the heel when I put it on a string and realised it wouldn’t fit over my ankle. Bye Bye sock! I’m now done 4 of 6 leg repeats on sock #2, so I should be able to get it done this week (well, if it’s nice I’ll be biking and gardening instead, so maybe by next week).
OK, it’s bedtime. I guess this is one of those sad posts without pictures.
