I guess this is the Thursday edition of Hump Day Miscellany.
Things I love
1). A great day in the wine country going on a bike ride with Juls, Runner Susan and her lovely husband The Chef. We had such a great time! Runner Susan is everything you ever dreamed she was and more – sweet, adorable, entertaining and the hostess with the mostess. The Chef is charming as only a man in a white cycling kit can be.
We had a beautiful ride and then we went back to Susan’s room to shower and go for lunch. The Chef provided glasses of ‘recovery juice’ that looked and tasted remarkably like red wine and was just what I needed. Then The Runners Susan took us to a delicious lunch where we consumed some more wine. Fabulous. After lunch I would rather have gone back to the hotel with the whole gang for a group snuggle nap but I’m pretty sure Julie and I would have fought over Runner Susan and The Chef would have gotten jealous and felt left out so it was better to just hit the road. Not sure I was totally legal for that but we made it to my house where Julie and I proceeded to pass out on different couches.
I wish I could go on vacation with the Susans all the time and that we could take Julie with us.
2). My jet lagged daughter apparently left her wallet on the roof of the car when she got gas and a man picked it up and walked to our house with it. He removed not one cent of the roughly $85 that were inside. I got the call about that while drinking wine and eating delicious food in Napa which made it a doubly lovely day.
3). I found a new cycling route today and it has a big hill – just enough to make me work but not terrible.
Things that make me mad:
I had some of these. I remember thinking “grrrr… I need to put this in HDM” but now I foget what they are. And that’s probably one of the things I like the most.
