Weekend Recap



Friday: Jorge drove to IL to be in a wedding, yes IN a wedding, even at the ripe old age of 47. The kicker: Groom is 27. All groomsmen well over 6 feet tall; Jorge is 5'7". Should be an interesting photo.

Friday night: I ate at Subway by myself. Enjoyed the new orchard chicken salad sandwich. Bought something to wear on my anniversary vacation that is quickly approaching.

Saturday: Cleaned my house and cooked all day. Saturday morning early, did my weekly "longer" run, only to be thwarted by a barking, growling dog run amuck and a motorcyclist who mildly harassed me. You are reading one mean lady at that point.

I posted about my frustration on Facebook and received about 40 comments of people trying to help me arm myself for protection while running.

Saturday night: Jorge returns. I am a grouch.

Sunday morning: Church, Subway with family, where I enjoyed the orchard chicken salad sandwich because overkill is how I roll.

Sunday afternoon: Anniversary pics taken outside until the sky broke open and we were forced inside. As soon as I can share, I will. It was fun. Except that part where we tried to do a dip-kiss like dancers do and I'm lucky to have a skull that is not cracked.

Sunday evening: Life group (or small group, or cell group, whatever your preferred terminology is). Cindy from Girls Group brought me a special surprise to protect me when I run:





A 357 Magnum is impressive but probably too "fumbly" to carry. So I think I'll stick with pepper spray, also given to me by Cindy!

I had never touched a gun before this, and did not know how to hold it. Then the group made me go outside and pose with it. Someone snuck a video. We live exciting lives here in Muncie.

How was your weekend?

Oh that gun is just you! We had a wedding attending/daughter-son-in-law/RAIN!/seeing old friends kind of weekend.

Susanne said...

What are friends for if not to buy you 357 magnums?! I wonder if your video will make youtube and get famous? :v)

A modern Annie Oakley you are with that gun!!! You need a holster to run with that thing. Or maybe take up horseback riding....and a big cowboy/girl hat!!! LOL

Well, gee. How can I compete with your weekend?!

My big excitement was my zooming gas inefficiency incurred while idling the car for an hour while they cleared a wreck. It was 97 so I wasn't about to turn off the a/c!

The big gun is impressive in scary kind of way. I've never held one either. We had a "longest Friday of the year" party on our deck...my favorite night of the year. The sky lost all light about 9:45. It's all downhill from here.

Sounds great....Your new color scheme is awesome....Love, love, it...

Hope you will stop by and visit me...I have a giveaway I am drawing for tomorrow...

LOL.... love the pictures!
I read the other day that wasp spray works great and it shoots a VERY long distance (how long, I don't know, but much farther and more accurate than pepper spray) and will stop but not badly hurt ... so I've been told... Although, running with a huge can of wasp spray may be awkward so unless you can find a nice small can, I guess pepper spray would be better.
So, just forget I said any of that - except about the pictures. And they are really good!

All you have to do is point it and say: Go ahead, make my day. :) I am very afraid, so afraid I had to leave a comment so you wouldn't hunt me down.

Lea said...

You look right at home with that gun! Maybe you need to get a big dog to take your run with you. :o) Blessings to you and looking forward to Random Wednesday next week. We've missed you!

Linda, you are so stinkin' hot!!! I mean this in the sweetest best girlfriend kind of way. But I want you to know that all your hard work has really payed off, and you are simply smokin'.

I also love the orchard chicken Subway and would eat it every day if I could afford it. YUM!
