::weekend::

It's beginning to feel like fall in these parts, and I like it. We had a nice, quiet weekend.

We tortured poor Rootbeer:




"I disapprove of this!"


....I sewed some new pillows for our couch in the TV room...David does not share my love of kitsch, but I figured with the deer on here, he'd be ok with them. I can tell he prefers the old, fugly, brown ones, but what does he know? The only thing he has good taste in in dogs and women.

...envelope back...

...we went for a lovely bike-ride on Sunday...

...oh, and I ran 18 miles and lived to tell about it!

Hope you are enjoying the last few weekends of summer. I can not believe school starts in a week and a half.

Kate--read your profile and had to tell you I saw Neko Case in concert a couple of weeks ago and am seeing Sufjan Stevens in about a month!

18 MILES, PEOPLE. 18. Just wow... how long did that take you?

kate said...

Melissa, now I really love you! We have excellent taste in music! :)

Heather, I'm trying something new (that might work for you, actually); we run for 9 minutes and then walk (fast) for 1 minute. It actually helps our pace during the running periods. We averaged just under 10 minute miles...which, you know, isn't going to win any races, but I'm gonna finish that marathon!

That's a great idea. And I know you are!! I can't wait to see you cross that finish line!

So very cute pillows! You should sell them on Etsy.

18 miles? I can't even run to the corner without having an asthma attack. You go girl!

I love the pillows ! You are something ! That's is NOT artsy crafty ----that's classy and useful AND decorative.
Tallulah is right----you could sell your pillows and they would SCOOPED UP !

1. I wish I could sew. Really.

2. I wish I could run 18 miles. And not die.

3. I wish I had a rabbit now.

Root Beer ------ Anna has the most unusual names for her pets. And this one is adorable. And, yes, you have a green eyed dog there. But patient.

Mom, he's named Rootbeer cuz he came home from the Seed 'n' Feed store in a rootbeer box. So it was a no-brainer. ;)
