But, I don't know how to rest.
|This was a few weeks ago, but still: does this look like a girl who likes to rest?! Also, I thought it'd been too long without a sweaty picture. You're welcome.|
I did a pretty good job today, though.
I woke up around 8:00 or so. I'm sure it would've been earlier since I went to bed about 10:00 (yep, that cool for the second weekend night in a row), but then I received some random text messages around the time of, oh, bar-close, and could not fall back asleep. But that's okay: I had all day to DO. NOTHING.
Around 9:30 or so I whipped up a Breakfast of Champions:
I may or may not have eaten the whole box.
Okay: I did. But then I wasn't hungry again until dinner, I swear!
My initial plan for the day was to go kayaking with a buddy, as he mentioned it last night at the Half-Birthday Party. Unfortunately, kayak-rental places prefer you to call in advance, so that plan was thwarted.

And instead of just reading part of the book, I finished the entire thing. I really enjoyed it. It's a story told from Alice Liddell's point-of-view. Supposedly she was the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland, and the novel chronicles her life as a child, a young lady, and an elderly woman, centering on her relationship with Charles Dodgson/Lewis Carroll, and something that happened between them that changed the course of her life forever. It was absolutely intriguing, so much so that I did further research and discovered that the book seems to be largely based on fact.
Anyway: read it.
I wanted to go on a bike ride today, but after seeing this
|Please note: this was at 8:30 p.m. Yes: it's still 89 degrees at 8:30 p.m.|
See that temperature for "tomorrow"? Yeah. That's a high of 95 degrees, actual temperature. Who knows what the heat index will be?! Because we're a couple of smart cookies, we decided to head out at the crack of dawn to crank out 4.5 miles. Wish us luck!
