There was one minor snafu: I almost passed out in church. Somewhere between the "peace be with you's" and communion I started getting tunnel vision, really dizzy, broke out in a cold sweat, and my ears felt like they were going to explode. The song book was used to fan myself as I sat while eveyone else stood. So embarassing! But very Gone With the Wind. I kept thinking of the term "vapors", as in "I got the vapors!”
The moment passed and I recovered. I think my vapors may have been brought on by head congestion and lack of coffee, so I took sudafed and drank coffee when I returned to my parents' house. (which explains why I didn't sleep well last night!)
When I saw ribeyes sitting out, intended to be our lunch, I was thrilled! On my way to my parents' I thought, "I hope we are having red meat." I've been craving it and rarely cook it myself. I considered making a ribeye salad, but instead had steak, a baked potato with full fat sour cream and cheese, 2 rolls, and a side salad. Oh and a rice crispy treat with another cup of coffee for dessert. (Oops! My 3rd cheat on sugar free January.) I don't regret indulging one bit....sorry I'm not sorry.
After lunch, while my sister and mom played Family Feud on the Wii, I spent the afternoon reading the latest issues of my two favorite magazines, Southern Living and Garden & Gun.
Favorite article: one about new twists on spinach salads. I couldn't find the article online, but I did find a few of the recipes. Check them out here, here, here, and here.
This recipe also caught my eye. The plum salsa sounds divine!
Favorite article: a New Orleans native wrote about to go cups and flasks. It made my heart smile! It's this type of article that makes me LOVE this magazine.
Runner up: Tie between this piece on Lyle Lovett (probably because this A&M alum agrees the Aggies should NOT move to the SEC) and the "50 Best Southern Bars". I've decided to add every one of these bars to my bucket list!
|My garmin actually read over 8 miles.|
But the best part of my Sunday was the reinstatement of the long run. My next half marathon is only a month and a week away, so I need to get serious about training. 8 miles on this humid, windy Sunday afternoon.
Since I'm pretty much bored with every bit of music on my ipod, I listened to a book on tape while running. It made the almost hour and a half fly by! This is what I listened to…
Hilarious! Some of it reminds me of my own dad, which made me laugh out loud while running. (I’m sure people I passed thought I was insane!) I think the funny short story format is perfect for running. My next book on tape may be this one…
Max Tucker’s other book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, was ridiculous, oh so funny, and very vulgar/offensive. But I enjoyed it.
Any David Sedaris would also be a good choice.
Do you ever listen to books on tape? What is your perfect Sunday?
