The Great Outdoors...

It was like 100 degrees in Ohio as I'm sure it was unseasonably hot all over the universe. I had a flat on my bike so I didn't get to ride at all this weekend, and my pump is broke. So I walked in the woods behind my house. I took pictures.. ..

Something that I'm probably allergic to...

The dirt bikes ride back here that interrupt my naps.

A little pond out back where the duckies swim.

I think this tree was molting.

I jogged up some hills, it made my buns burn.

A lake where the neighbors go fishing.

I jogged up and around this tree a few times. It made me want to puke.

I kicked this hills ass a couple of times.

I spent my weekend cleaning my downstairs. This meant I started out intending to clean my garage, but wound up that I moved a big old floor model TV to my garage by turning it end over end cus it was too heavy. I also painted a coffee table, and sprayed the glass and turned it into a chalk board. Crafty!

I also fixed the screen in my door leading to my garage off my laundry room, so now I can leave the door open and catch another breeze through there without the cats running out and causing me stress. I did it, cus I'm handy. Mmm hmm.

I caught about a half hour in the sun reading a book and enjoying the birds before heading to the big city for a party at the manfriend's house. We had a killer time, and I lost at beer pong a few times. Beer=calories and bloating. You really feel crappy after drinking beer. I miss the taste, but vodka doesn't make me feel fat the next day.

I ended the weekend quite differently. I started it out enjoying nature, and beauty. Sunday, the manfriend took me to IHop on Detroit Ave. This is where I saw my first real-life in person crackhead walking down the street. Quite the change of pace!! Then the unthinkable happened over breakfast.

Manfriend told me he didn't like Cheap Trick. I really considered this a deal breaker, but then he has the cutest smile, you can't resist it. I mean, they sing I want you to want me! And...the flame. Come on! (P.S. I'm going to see them in June with Def Leppard and Poison...i may have mentioned this)

Now I'm off to burn some calories. I hate Monday workouts.

Vodka made me really mean when I drank it as a teenager, so I haven't drank it since.

Sounds like you had quite the productive weekend.

It looks hot there. Good for you to go out and get exercise even without your bike working. As for beer, it isn't anymore fattening if you just stick to two beers in one night. So, if you want to get a buzz going, drink one vodka drink and two beers (liquor before beer, of course) and you won't feel bloated the next day. Any more than two beers is a whole lot of yeast in the system and that will bloat you out like crazy! Personally, I like gin and gin martinis but I try to steer clear or I'll do wicked things. ;-)
