The weather transplant was a success!

Suddenly we got new weather! Yay! What a nice surprise compared to the last two days of living inside a steam bath!

So Ellie and I went out for a long run (12 miler) early this morning in my lovely old neighborhood by the Miles River while Dianne was kind enough to watch my girls. We were so spooked by the hot weather that we went out at around 5:30 AM, but it really would have been cool enough today to run any time. Since I usually train alone, it was wonderful having a running buddy along to make those miles fly by!

That left us enough time in the middle of the day to pack up the girls and take them to the pool at the Yacht Club, which was deserted today. They had enormous fun getting spoiled and played with by their two aunties, and became exhausted enough to be sleeping now like little angels. :-)

Tonight is seafood in the open-air restaurant next to the harbor. Yum yum yum! They may go for the Maryland crab cakes, but (traitor that I am) I prefer the Alaskan king crab variety. Mmm, yeah, dripping with butter. I burned off those calories earlier, didn't I? Oops, maybe I "spent" those already on those superb Bernard Callebaut chocolates that Dianne brought here with her.

Dianne, true to her word, has STRIPPED my garden of weeds. It's a world-class weeding performance. She's like an Olympian of weeding. It's like poetry in motion - truly amazing to watch. From inside. Through the windows.

oh, double that Flatman, alaskan king crab is not the king of crab for nothing... my kingdom for king crab!

Nancy, I liked the idea of you eating your friends chocolates, while watching her weed your garden through the window, from the air-conditioned confines of your home.

That's executive potential!!!!

Them Maryland crabs just don't have any meat on their bones (well, I guess technically they don't have bones, but you know what I mean). Alaskan king crab all the way! :)

Bernard C flat out has the best chocolates in the world. Wife and I, mostly wife, has eaten them since finding one of his stores in Canada.

Now there is one in Scottsdale and last christmas it cost me $60 a pound. I stiffled my gag as I was buying two 1 pound gifts. Thank the good lord she loves them so much. I would never do that to myself.
