This past weekend was my daughter’s confirmation and Mother’s Day here in France.
The confirmation was Saturday evening. After the ceremony we had family over. I had prepared some appetizers : proscuitto ham and melon, tomatoes and mozzarella, and of course champagne ! We had a wonderful dinner but I was having too much fun with my family and forgot to take some pictures.
Today was Mother’s Day. The day was quite low key. It was the first time in 3 weeks that we had really nice weather, so I decided to go for a walk / run. I just wanted to be outside. There were soooo many people out and I saw several people I know. I love that sense of community.
First day for running shorts ! One hour 15 minute walk / run because I did not want to aggregate my knee, so I alternated and pretty much did what I felt like. I also exercised without music. Both of my Ipods were completely flat and I was going to take my husband’s but we have very different music tastes. So, no music… which turned out to be a positive thing, as it allowed me to be more in tune with what was going on around me. I also stopped on park benches to get in 100 push ups and 50 tricep dips.
My husband had taken my youngest daughter fishing for the day, so I spent the rest of the day with my eldest daughter.
We painted our toes nails, watched a movie and did some cooking. Muffins and pancakes to freeze for the week.
I also spent time moving around everything in my kitchen, as they finally finished it. Yeah !
Happy Memorial Weekend to all those in the US. In France we have (another) long weekend next weekend, so I only have to work three days this week. Keeping my fingers crossed that we have nice weather!
How was your weekend ? Do you like to run with our without music ?
