A life well lived

My work schedule is the opposite of most, which works out well since tourist season is kicking in and traffic is starting to make the idea of sitting at home a lot more appealing. Lately on my days off I’ve been spending a lot of time here…

Mike + I took Bam to run around free like a hippie. Every time we get close to the beach where he can smell it, dude goes crazy. Whining, barking, pacing around the back seat in anticipation. He can’t even stand himself.

I’ve been kinda impatiently waiting for the wildflowers to bloom in Pacific Grove. It seems like they waited a little longer than last year, but man are they worth the wait!! I’m plotting my next run right down this trail.

Easy beach slogging with Mr.Knucklehead. I finally figured out how to get an action shot without it looking like a melted hershey bar.

Set your phone/camera/etc next to a rock, bench, or whatever is close by (the pic below was set against some seaweed) and take a video. Then pause it, take a screenshot and viola action shot.


Between the beach days, I’ve spent some time in the pool. It was kinda sad to see it takes me 26 minutes to pool run 1 mile. But man, I’m happy to be able to move these days!

Oh I finished Gilmore Girls. So sad it’s over but I started watching Parenthood. Oh my gosh, only 4 episodes in and I’m loving it. This new addiction is 100% Mike & Em’s fault.

Yep, a life well lived.

  1. I still cry a couple of times a year thinking about the fact that Gilmore Girls is over!

  2. Boston is on my bucket list. But at 3:15 for a BQ…that’s a huge get. I have some hangups on doing the donation route after now being soured on it this year. Maybe I’ll blog about that. But yeah, running around Bean town would be fun.

  3. Such a great tip about how to get an action shot with your phone.. totally going to try that! Also, love love love Parenthood. You won’t be disappointed!

  4. Now that Mad Men and a few other shows are ending, I am glad for the rec’s, I will try GG and Parenthood. Does your husband watch w/ you? Or are they for chicks?
    Are you still working at the golf course? I really want an outdoorsy job, but just found out we are moving to Massachusetts, so that rules winter out.
