Hello readers, how was your weekend ? We had a 3 day weekend here in France due to French Labor Day being May 1st. A rainy three day weekend… yuck. We were supposed to go away but decided to stay home. I can not complain though, we had 3 weeks of fantastic weather in April.
Friday, after a run to the bakery for the family (because I was too busy to get groceries the day before and the supermarket is closed on Labor Day)…
….I spent quite a bit of time working on my blog trying new plug ins and playing with Jetpack options. I am always a bit reluctant to make changes, worried it will screw everything up, but so far so good. I added Comment Reply notification, Click to Tweet (Coco wrote a great post here about plug ins to add) and as people have been asking if they can receive a notification each time I post I figured out how to include that option too ! Thanks to fellow bloggers for the advice.
I then spent some time planning our summer vacation. Looking forward to this :
My mother in law came over and she offered these flowers to us, which is a tradition in France on May 1st. They smell wonderful.
On Saturday I went for a long run, between the rain showers. Wasn’t necessarily planning to, but it just felt good, so I kept on going.
With my mother in law we had a great lunch and she also bought dessert :
On Saturday afternoon I went to a new running shop. I wanted to look at things like compression socks / sleeves, fueling… and just
drool over look at running clothes and equipment. I didn’t buy anything. Yet.
Saturday evening I went to the movies with my daughter and a friend to see Connasse Princesse des Coeurs, a French film. It was hilarious. Its about a French woman who decides she doesn’t want to work, and wants to marry Prince Harry. The entire film was filmed with a hidden camera in Paris and London. I hadn’t laughed that hard in a very long time. I had one of those deep belly laughs that I couldn’t stop (you know, the ones that hurt because you are laughing so hard) for the scene with the corgi.

On Sunday, I went to the pool, then spent the rest of the day cooking, reading, watching a movie, blogging, cleaning. It turned really nice at the end of the day and we got to eat dinner out side on our balcony. Yummy salad and fruit :
Linking up with Tara at Running n Reading for this weekend’s update.
How was your weekend ? Any racing ? Have spring fruits come your way ?
