My garmin hasn't come around either. He still starts acting up after about 2 miles of running, so I've given in, shunned this century's running fashion, and surrounded him in sweatbands. It looks like I'm running with a broken arm, but he made it with only a small complaint for 40 sweaty minutes like this.
Have I mentioned I'm a heavy sweater? I'd forgotten this little detail in the last 3 years. I had hoped for just a fine tuned acclimation to heat from running in extreme temps (it's really the scorching sun at 4500ft that's the killer), but no. It was just evaporating like its supposed to do. So I dug up my cycling sweat band with the cute TdF logo in honor of the race start next week, and wow, does it help do what my eyebrows cannot.
It's super nice to have this reprieve from the humidity that is commonly called air conditioner, a luxury we didn't have in NM (swamp coolers just suck when you exercise). We are also enjoying the pool just down the street. Hunter frequents it in his adorable little baby speedo swim diaper. I just can't put him in bid kid swim trunks this year. When else in his life will tiny swim shorts be so cute?
Besides Jeremy doing big manual labor type jobs in the house and yard, we are slowly working on decorating. Here's the buffet of my great aunt Bea's that I just had to refinish. It was a nice but boring maple color with scrolly pulls and I thought a little paint, some stain marker detailing, and new pulls might update it a bit. Nice bulbless lamp too, huh?
Hunter, not missing a beat, added some color detailing to his table and chairs as soon as Jeremy put them together. Eventually we will start selling his work to galleries I suppose. Although they seem to still be works in progress, added to daily.
Happy official summer!
