Yesterday, I slept late and then Matt and I walked over to the Durham farmer’s market. It seemed like the selection was good – there were a lot of local meat vendors and tons of produce, but we got there late and many of the vendors were out of the best foods. We still bought some peaches and corn and have a few ideas for things we want to get next week.
I finally have my Duke card and my gym membership set up, so I biked over to the gym yesterday for some mid-day stair climbing. Oh my gosh, I missed this machine!!!! I only did 20 minutes, but I was absolutely soaked because I haven’t climbed in over a month. It felt glorious. I have to say though, that the Northeastern gym spoiled me because this one is a lot smaller and doesn’t have the really nice lockers, magazines, ect. I’m glad to have more options though and I can go to spinning soon!!!!
We spent the afternoon running errands and choosing a coffee table, and then we drove to Hillsborough for dinner with these ole country bumpkins:)
My parents’ alma mater, Matt’s new school, and now, my place of employment:
I went back to Boston with one of these…tasted so refreshing after a 100 degree day.
My dad made a caprese salad
And my mom slow roasted pork with corn, rice, and Great Harvest cheddar rolls on the side.
Mmmmm. We also celebrated my recent accomplishment with champagne!
Boy, this stuff goes down nicely.
Dessert was multiple mini pieces of a sugar cookies cake that my nephews baked earlier in the day. They are staying with my Mom this summer and were doing some kind of exposure therapy because one of them is afraid of the moon? Thus, the round, yellow cake.
We had planned on going out again on Saturday night, but after a huge thunderstorm and lots of conversation around the table, we didn’t get home until 11 and were too tempted to go to bed.
Today is going to be another busy one because I’m attending an orientation brunch for Fuqua partners and then need to go the grocery shopping and set up the new coffee and accent tables we acquired yesterday. Oh, and prepare for a packed work week because I have orientation events Mon., Tues., and Wed.!!
Enjoy your Sunday.
