First weekend of vacation

This weekend was my first vacation weekend. I am now off for 3 full weeks. We spent the last few days with my brother and his family and we will leaving tomorrow for Southern France.


Saturday was really nice because there was no one in my town, all the Parisians have left, so things were pretty empty. We started off with some bakery food…


After going to the market, we stopped for coffee with my brother, who had to have his double espresso.



The afternoon was spent shopping for school supplies (no lines anywhere) before I made my way to the pool. I swam laps for an hour and pretty much sucked wind the whole time. Travel this past week seems to have caught up with me…

On Saturday evening we went out to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary, and my brother’s 10 year anniversary. The evening light was great for taking pictures. Its nice to have something other than a selfie.

There was some miscommunication at the restaurant and they understood it was our “birthday”, so they brought out a cake and the whole restaurant sang happy birthday to my brother. LOL.

It was a wonderful evening. We are going to miss them.

Today  (Sunday) I was up early, as I wanted to get my long run in. With vacation this week, I am not sure how my exercise will pan out so I absolutely wanted to run today. I knew it was going to be hard. With less than 6 hours sleep, the travel food from the past week still screwing up my system, the restaurant last night, I was not expecting a great run. It turned out alright though, besides the fact my watch went kooky on me and stopped working at around 10 km. I managed to get in somewhere between 13 and 15 km….


But I was right, it was hard.

The afternoon was spent packing and napping. We are enjoying one last nice meal with my brother before leaving early Monday morning. Loved having my girls and nieces under the same roof.



How was your weekend ? Did you get in your long run ? Any vacation plans ?
