**I finally sat down and worked on both my book ideas today. If I had a laptop I'd have more of a chance to work on them. It's hard to find the time to sit at the desktop some days.
**Running is really tough in the summer. I forgot how hot it can get! Monday I went for a run because now I'm just trying to go whenever it's not raining. Since it's so hot I decided to only do 2 miles and at like 1 1/2 miles it started to rain! I had both the girls with me. So I pulled the sun shade over Annabel (who was sleeping, as usual) and ran faster than I normally do. I was dying when I got home! Annika didn't want the sun shade over here, she was enjoying the rain.
**Yesterday it didn't rain but I skipped my run since during lunch at work I walked a mile with my friend to go to the bank. There's no point sometimes in driving downtown, you can get there faster walking most of the time! So instead of a run we did another outdoor activity, we used chalk on our sidewalk!
It was hard for me to color too much because I brought Annabel outside with us and she was in my lap. Also I have no clue why I bought the skinny chalk because it sucks! All of the pieces broke, easily. Annika seemed to enjoy it but she mostly just drew lines, like she's doing in this picture.
**Since I am trying to exercise in some way at least 5 days a week I also did part of yoga DVD after the girls went to bed. I felt so much more relaxed!
