A nice walk, a glass of wine and some good reading will do that to ya :)
The weather has been borderline pleasant in Virginia the past week or so, meaning it's still hovering around 90 but the humidity has dropped and there was even a little breeze today. I actually took two walks, one this morning before work and again after dinner tonight, both just around the neighborhood. I've decided walking is the new running, I walked a little over an hour today which is the equivalent of running for about 30 minutes. The biggest differences were not being a sweaty mess (just "glistening") and not feeling like I was going to die! I'm also having a weird pain in my hip so walking is easier on that.
My choice of reading material was electronic tonight, although I do really need a good book, I've barely read anything this summer! Related: we haven't been to the beach ONCE this summer...with the wedding and a bunch of other stuff, weekends have been pretty full. Since we're getting married on an island known for it's beaches (even though the wedding isn't actually on the beach), I'm hoping to get in a little sand time then.
What are you reading right now?
I poured a glass of wine (I'm sorta in love with Red Diamond Cabernet, chilled of course because it's hot out!) and did a little reading on Stratejoy.com - great blog if you're looking for a little inspiration!
I'm actually doing their Joy Equation, I was in the mood to try something new a few weeks ago. It's been interesting so far, a lot of writing and reflection. I forget how much I like to write sometimes, and how big of a difference it is to write with a good pen! Not even an expensive pen, just one you really like. I'm kind of a nerd like that :)
I have a great recipe to share tomorrow, I used turkey breast cutlets in place of chicken in the Chicken Picatta recipe we got from our first cooking class. Stay tuned for the results!
