Hello my friends. How was your weekend? Superb? Mine was pretty darn good. I wish the weekends would just slow down…
Let’s recap on the weekend shall we?
On Friday, I was able to get out of the office early to enjoy the weather. When the boss says, “Tara get outta here!!” I’ll definitely take him up on that. I was out like a rocket. I immediately headed to my parents to grab Kasa and my mom then we headed to Soaring Eagle to go on a quick trail walk.
Post trail walk lead to a run to the store and a quick stop at the local Desert Sun. Yes, I do tan. Nuff’ said. Immediately after finishing my bronzing session, I received a text stating that step brother decided to come into town…hello impromptu visit. It was great seeing him and catching up on life. We ended up watching Divergent too. I was pretty stoked and I actually enjoyed the movie. I highly recommend it.
Saturday began with some prepping for the Music on the Lawn Party. My step dad and I decided to create a pizza station for the event. This means alot of prep. And since I am a wonderful step child, I offered to assist in the process from the beginning to the end.
Since I was knee deep in dough and making pizzas all evening, I didn’t even snap a picture of any of the pizzas. However, we were a hit. Everyone loved the pizzas. I may blame the fact that I didn’t take any pictures of the pizzas on this:
So good and I am not sorry if I had too many.
There was a lot of dancing going on. Even the one year old’d got down with it.
Throughout the evening, I was asking many times if I was doing the Lake Sammamish Triathlon. At first, I said no because I didn’t know much about it at all. Apparently I am behind on the triathlon race circuit. I was immediately convinced that I should do the Lake Sammamish Triathlon with everyone this year. BTW, the race is in two weeks. Perhaps I should get my shit together.
I thought it would be great to get my shit together on Sunday by heading home to get my road bike and tune it up.
Done and Done! I took the bike on a quick 10 mile ride around Sammamish just in time to witness this…
The picnic table is coming along. After a few “test” runs on wood that we wouldn’t use with an overall success, it was time to split the wood that would be used on the picnic table. I was in charge of viewing and video and picture taking. Yippeee.
Take a guess at how long it took to split this long piece of wood….Here’s a hint, less than 30 minutes.
Only one more to go for the sitting areas, I think. But I don’t really know.
I won’t be going into the logging industry anytime soon. Totally not my thing.
What did you do this weekend?
Do you like to build things?
Do you have any upcoming races?
