PROUD | of Jon for doing the Davis Moo-nlight 5k walk with me. I joke that I won’t leave the house for a 5k anymore, but we’re all at different points in our journey (and we all started somewhere!) and it doesn’t diminish the fact that participating in an official 5K event is a HUGE accomplishment.
HITTING | some Peloton milestones this month: 3-year weekly streak, 950 rides, 800 strength classes, 400 runs, and 15k minutes on the platform for this year.
(equally) IMPRESSED | by my sister who walked from our hometown to the Cologne Cathedral – which is about 20 miles – last week. She’d been talking about it for a while, my mom and some friends had expressed interest in walking the distance with her, but for one reason or another it hadn’t worked out yet. She’s currently on summer break (she’s a teacher) and decided to “just do it” now, by herself, before the break is over and she won’t get the chance for a while. I am so proud of her.
EXCITED | to harvest my first zucchini and a handful of grape tomatoes from my container garden. The tomatoes were so sweet and juicy.
LISTENING TO | a podcast episode of “This American Life”. It’s one of the very few podcasts of which I will occasionally download an episode or two. They had a great piece about ChatGPT (I am still ignorant to a lot of the AI stuff).
ENJOYING | some time in our backyard. We had some terribly hot days (100+F) recently when you couldn’t sit outside for more than 5 minutes, but there were also some cooler days (still hot for some people, haha) in between when it was pleasant to sit outside in the shade. We even had the occasional light breeze (imagine that!).
ANTICIPATING | the kitchen floor replacement that is finally supposed to happen in August. (The vinyl flooring was delivered this week!). Fingers crossed this one goes off without a hitch.
HAPPY | to spend some girl time with my friend Susi. It had been too long. I went to the Bay Area for 4 nights and worked a couple of days remotely. So nice to have that flexibility.
EATING | milk rice. One of my favorite summer treats. So simple, so delicious!
What has been going on in your world in July?
