What a weekend!

Westminster Running Club's Women's Distance Festival 5K
Lillian was the LAST finisher and also FIRST in her age group, both here AND at the Howard County Strider's WDF 5k on July 10 (in Hilly Columbia). She's one of my Role Models :-)

BRRC Meet of the Miles! My FIRST EVER one-mile race. Within my heat (Women Over 40), I was DFL at about 8:03. There were only FIVE women in my heat. LOL - ooooh, nice points for the Grand Prix Series!!! :-) Posted by Picasa

The neighbors set up a yard sale at the Start/Finish Line of the Annapolis Strider's Women's Distance Festival - this little girl is 1/2 of a pair of identical twins watching the racers come in. Notice the "goods" on sale behind her!  Posted by Picasa

That's why they invented painters...


I spent the day today prime-coating the parlor for a new paint job. I EXPECTED to do both the prep and the painting today. But...man...I'm LOUSY at painting. I ended up with paint everywhere...and the most uneven looking basecoat you'd ever hope to see...

Perhaps I'll just wait for Jamie to get home, instead of surprising him?

The room is due to go from SMILEY-FACE yellow to Sunbeam, a pale yellow. (Even if we have to HIRE the professionals!)
