We did do a few things around the house, including Kevin patching a hole in our bedroom ceiling. I don't think I mentioned it here but we woke up to water dripping through the ceiling several weeks back. The third floor shower had a leak and we had to call a plumber out to fix it. There was a pretty big hole that led to some serious sound issues -- the third floor is occupied by our tenant. We both were pretty sick of waking up to him singing the "red balloon" song in the shower (sounding like he was right next to us) so Kevin worked a bit on fixing it. It got a bit better.
We also finished up painting the dining room. A preview:
Once those two chores were out of the way we decided to go for a hike. We headed about an hour south to the High Tor Wildlife Management Area. As I've mentioned before hiking is a relative term and what some people call hiking here I call "walking in a park." Not true for High Tor - it had some pretty big inclines and some pretty good views along the way.
Not unlike us, we lost the trail we were supposed to be following almost immediately. It took us awhile to figure out that we were no longer on it and decide to backtrack. A photo from our detour:
Roxy couldn't come hiking with us so we took her swimming on Sunday. She had fun.
I did two good runs. One a sub-9 minute miler. I was pretty happy with that time.
We rounded out the weekend with a dinner with Kevin's parents and going to bed early in preparation for the week. All in all it was a great weekend and I hope we can incorporate more of them into our summer.
(Sorry about the poor quality photos - I used my cell phone camera rather than dragging our big camera along with us. I am happy with my non iPhone smart phone except for the camera. Samsung has a long way to go to catch up to the quality of the iPhone cameras).
