Birth Weekend

This is my "birth weekend". It's like a birthday, but it lasts all weekend. Tomorrow is my actual birthday.

Actually I usually like to celebrate birth month. However since my birthday (June 2) falls on a monday, it's natural to start celebrating on the friday beforehand. To be honest I didn't celebrate a whole lot on friday, but I certainly started celebrating saturday morning.

Saturday morning I went on my very first Color Run! It was Ferndale's Rainbow Run, it was 5k, and I walked it with M, Sandra, Sharon, and another Mike. I've been wanting to do a color run for awhile, but have had trouble talking M into doing one. Naturally this being my birth weekend, it was easier to convince him.

We had fun, got very colorful, and took lots of pictures! I enjoyed it. The only downside was that it took a long time between when we arrived and when we finally got started walking. Would have been better if we had arrived a bit later, or if they had been moving things along a little quicker.

Saturday afternoon there was some relaxing and napping, then saturday night we went to dinner with S and R at a place called A Matter of Taste. Good food, on a deck on the lake, which was very relaxing and pretty.

Sunday morning I had a doctor's appointment. Then I worked on affixing one of my birthday presents to my bike: a new phone-holder! Then M and I went for a bike ride. I used my phone's map to navigate us to Maybury State Park, and we had a great ride around inside of it. Beautiful day, good fun, and the phone holder works well. Yay!

Sunday evening M cooked us a homemade dinner. Shrimp, scallops, and broccoli casserole. Yummy, and somewhat low-carb. We shared some wine with it, and ate on the deck. Was lovely, even if our neighbor decided that sunday dinner-time was the perfect time to use his chainsaw to cut up some wood, and then run a wood-chipper. Argh.

We've been trying to cut back on carbs recently. I'm not going to be perfectly low-carb on birth weekend, but at least we can be somewhat cautious of them. I also had a Giridelli chocolate today, and an ice cream bar. Yumm.... even a few tortilla chips with guacamole, but no bread or pasta. So slightly lower carb than I might generally eat. We're trying to cut back because I, at least, am quite addicted to carbohydrates. Sweet, sweet carbs. M is just generally looking to lose a few pounds, I think. We both would like to be healthier. So more walking and biking, and less bread and chocolate.

Tomorrow is monday, and I don't have to go to work. Woohoo! I gave myself a birthday present of a day off, and I will spend it sleeping in, getting a massage, and perhaps running some errands.
