We skipped-out on the last day of the track meet and came home.
We just have not spent enough time at home and there is so much work to do
around here... not to mention our entire house is in the process of having the
old siding removed and new siding installed. The workers keep 1) setting off the
burglar alarm and 2) tripping circuit breakers.
Thank goodness we arrived home a day early as the breaker for our fridge had
been tripped. If we had arrived home much later, it could have been a very sad
story. Happily, we arrived within hours of the blackout, as even the ice in the
bin was still frozen. Whew.
And, yes, the porta-potty is still in the front yard.
We are so classy.
Since Dustin was staying with us, we spent the day with
him and then invited Olympician
Matthew Centrowitz, Jr. and ex-Duck 800m phenom
Laura Roesler to dinner so the kids could catch-up. (Pay attention
here... Matt's dad ran with DT in college, so we have known the
Centrowitz family for years... Matt's Dad is the track coach at American
University... Dustin ran for Matt Senior at American... Matt Jr and
Laura are dating.)
Everyone following along?
We served goat cheese on grilled bread, topped with figs
and walnuts... and other assorted tidbits.
Delicious and easy.
Steak Frites (in a red wine/balsamic reduction) was on
the menu... along with greens (and cherries!) tossed in olive oil.
Laura & Matthew
I don't suppose I have to tell you about the dinner
conversation. We talked about running. Then we talked about running. We
talked about running for a while and then we had almond cake with fresh
berries... and then we finished up talking about running.
Best. Night. Ever.
FYI: Laura Roesler is in a heated competition (her
accomplishments are listed here) for the
Bowerman Award. I voted for Laura today - don't forget to
