Hi, friends! I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful Memorial Day! Mine has been pretty low-key, but really nice.
My day started with breakfast (waffles + peanut butter + banana) and then a 2-mile run to kick off Summer Run Streak. My legs (especially my calves) were tight from yesterday’s half marathon, so it was one of those slow and steady runs, but it felt great to “shake out” my legs and get them moving.
A few minutes after I finished my run, Mal and Murphy returned home from the dog park. Apparently, Murphy had a really good time there and “elephant butted” in a swamp, so he desperately needed a bath.
Look at his bugged-out pug face!
He’s such a baby when it comes to baths.
Once he’s wet, Murphy doesn’t mind baths that much””it’s just the anticipation that gets him.
After his bath, we tried to dry off Murphy with a towel, but he thought it was playtime and started biting and jumping at it, so we didn’t have much success. Mal thought using some cool air from my hair dryer might work, but Murphy was just not having it””even when I tried to bribe him with a peanut butter Kong.
Murphy wanted no part of the hair dryer action.
It was a gorgeous day, so we chose to eat outside.
Check out the view from our table. So pretty!
I ordered the “Salad Bowl” with crabmeat on top and a grainy mustard dressing on the side. It was an awesome salad””super fresh with lots of crabmeat, veggies, and chickpeas. The dressing was also pretty amazing. I even used half of a roll to soak up every last bit of it.
My lovely lunch dates:
Just a little while ago, I sliced up an orange to eat as an afternoon snack. I’m not sure if it’s the warm weather or what, but I’ve been seriously craving citrus fruits lately.
How was your Memorial Day?
