This is getting to be a habit. The short posts on Saturdays, I mean. We had a nice leisurely morning. I ran six miles (takes me forever to do that) while John mowed the lawn. I got back in time to help him pull up dandelions in the front yard. Ate a quick breakfast, took a quick shower, and then we went to DC to pick up his race packet and have lunch. DC was mobbed, of course, since it’s the weekend of the Cherry Blossom Festival, but we got a good parking space on the south side of the Mall, right at 12th St. And then realized we had to walk to 4th and F to pick up the race packet. Not the best planning. Had lunch at Elephant and Castle (mobbed for lunch even though it was 2:30), and then headed home. It was much later than we planned, but I guess that’s how it goes. I went to Costco to pick up Roxy’s medicine and then bought new shoes from the Naturalizer outlet nearby. I might still check out Nordstrom’s tomorrow since they carry Dansko and Sofft. The Clarks outlet was disappointing.
A recap of my day is not the most exciting reading, but it’s all I can think of at the moment. I’m tired and we’re getting up at 5:20 tomorrow morning. I’m going to bed.
Oh, the cherry blossoms are all gone. Not out here (there are lots of cherry trees still blooming around here), but in DC, they’re all green now. I’m sure that’s a huge disappointment to the thousands of tourists in town this weekend. It was a beautiful day, though, and DC looks great in spring. The sky was almost a September blue.
