A few random observations from my run this afternoon:
– Toddlers can bike. Seriously, this kid couldn’t have been more than 2 or 3 years old and was pedaling the smallest two-wheeler I have ever seen, sans training wheels, like a pro! Way to kick ass, little man. Your peers are still effing around with Big Wheels and you’re ready to take on Lance Armstrong.
– Cats can be walked. I knew I was on to something when I bought Emmy that pink harness with rhinestones when she was a baby! (Yes, really.) If only I’d had more discipline in her training, she could have been like the big gray tabby I saw today, trotting along Central Park West beside his owner.
– Two people hugging while wearing roller-blades: there is no way for this not to look awkward. Especially if you’re on a hill.
And some additional Sunday randomness:
The hubs and I try not to leave our dresser drawers open. Because this is what happens when we do. White cat hair is the new black….?
Today’s EAT: I informed the hubs that I was NOT cooking tonight. Because I’m just not in the mood.
He informed me that a fancy dinner out really wasn’t in the budget. Killjoy.
Today’s DRINK: Wine in bed? Sure, why not! I’m spending my Sunday afternoon unwinding with a glass of Oxford Landing Merlot – while curled up on the bed with a book!
This wine is pretty tasty. The flavor is a tad light, but that’s okay with me – if I didn’t know otherwise, I might guess that this was a Pinot Noir. But I love Pinot Noir, so we’re cool, Oxford. For a TJ’s under-$10 cheapie, it’s definitely a good value and one that I’ll be buying again!
And just for kicks, because I seem to be in a view-posting mood this weekend, and this post chock full ‘o random anyway, the view from my perch on the bed:
The reward for dealing with five flights of stairs: we can actually see sky from our apartment! Unless you have a bajilion dollars to spend – or are willing to sacrifice your quads to the climb – this is pretty hard to come by in NYC. Well, at least in the old little pre-war buildings like ours. This view is one of the things that I love about our apartment. 🙂
Today’s RUN: Since I am theoretically training for the Brooklyn Half in May, I’ve been trying to get a long run in every week. Last week I did 13, so today I decided that 10 was enough. I did a big loop (6 miles) and a little loop (4 miles ‘n change) in the park and finished just under 1:24. It was a lovely day for running – 55 and sunny, pretty much my ideal!
And my butt? I am happy to report that it’s not too sore from yesterday’s weight room experiment! I know you were all wondering. 🙂
Today’s QUESTION: Spread some Sunday randomness – what did you do today?
