Let's have a bit of Paul Simon to start us off...
Tavo and I danced to this song from, "Rhythm of the Saints" this Saturday afternoon. It was my favorite part of the whole weekend.
Hello--I just signed up for the half marathon here in Atlanta with a college friend, and to get myself in the mood, I'm borrowing the idea of this post from Jesse of the fantastically funny blog, We All Go Poopie. Jesse is a phenomenal runner--and recently posted pics of her route in her hometown Los Angeles, as well as her current digs in Oxford, England. While I reside in Atlanta, we did go to Hilton Head, South Carolina, over Christmas. The route there, on the beach, was too breathtaking to not take a camera. I also took pics of one of my normal routes here in Atlanta--but on an oddly rainy day (we've been in drought for going on 2 years)
Here's Hilton Head:
and some of my jog here in Atlanta:
(the cobblestone sidewalk can get quite precarious)
you can not go more than a half mile without seeing a marker concerning, "The war of Northern Aggression."
Much of Grant Park has been restored, but this fountain is still in a state of repair
some fences are fancy
some just are
the trees are very alive. Honestly, the first thing that struck me about Atlanta is how green it is. And this is the dead of winter, mind you.
There are many beautifully restored homes
some have graveyards right on the property
and of course, we do keep eating--here's some oven fries
I made a tomato - zucchini soup (because I miss summer!)
and someone was happy to find a pot of Beef Stew!
with random homemade baguette (i.e. leftover dough)
Packing lunches for the week--quite important to make sure each day has an equal amount of stew!
I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!
