It’s August! Do you know what that means? It’s my birthday month…
So, as we kick off the month, I hope you can grab a cup of coffee and join me for a chat because it’s time for the August Ultimate Coffee Date. Hosted by Coco at RunningWithPerseverence, Lynda at FitnessMomWineCountry and Deborah at ConfessionsofaMotherRunner.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you what’s been going on around here these past few weeks.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about a new route that I went on for a walk during my lunch the other day. I was surprised to come across these railroad tracks that I had to cross. I knew they were there, and I know they are active tracks. It just felt kind of weird to walk over them without a lot of pedestrian protection. I kind of jogged across quickly. Not sure why it unsettled me so much.
And then this happened…
If we were having coffee, I’d guess that you didn’t think dancers were likely to break a finger at dance camp. Well, it happened. Of course the first night of a 4 night camp… (if you didn’t already know, my daughter is on her high school varsity competition dance team, this is her 2nd year, she’s a 10th grader). Not only did she smack her finger against another dancer while prepping for a turn in the 2nd class of the camp, but she continued to dance for the weekend with it purple and swollen. We went to urgent care on Sunday after getting home. It’s possible that it’s not a break and just a really bad sprain (that didn’t get a chance to heal when you dance 14 hours a day for 4 days and get very little sleep). By the time she headed off yesterday to the 2nd camp of the summer, it was doing much better. She’s a trooper. And as she said to me by text on the 2nd night “I’m not going home for a finger”.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you all about my friend from high school who became an Ironman last weekend in Whistler, Canada. How cute is this… her mom sent a t-shirt to another friend who coordinated with a bunch of us to take a picture in it and share it with her the day before the race. Such a cute idea.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about my wine club delivery this week. We signed up for the Tasting Room and had a fun time tasting wines a few months back. Every other month we get 2 bottles of wine that are supposed to fit our flavor profile and our delivery came the other day. I’ll let you know how they are. It’s fun to get a couple of new to us wines and every other month delivery is a perfect schedule in my opinion.
And because this is my birthday month, I was reminded by social media that 4 years ago was my awesome trip to Europe with my mom. This picture appeared on my Time Hop app last week. Such an amazing sight to see.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask you when your birthday is and what you typically do to celebrate. For me, this year is pretty quiet. Most likely dinner with the family. But, I do love birthdays.
