A package arrived for me today via Fed Ex and it contained this 10 lb. Reebok kettlebell and a DVD that has 2 workouts on it. I had a quick look at them both... beginner and intermediate, and I think I can do them! Gonna give it a try tomorrow.
It is Swiftsure weekend here... that means the Inner Harbor marina is full of beautiful sailboats and the city is crawling with professional sailors and American tourists. The energy is amazing and I love it. Swiftsure is the biggest race in the Pacific Northwest. The action relies completely on the weather conditions.

We are getting things set up at the new apartment, slowly but surely... and I am loving being able to pick herbs and veggies out of my container garden pots and use them to cook dinner. So far I have harvested cilantro and bok choy.
I love living across the street from an amazing park with several small lakes, colonies of herons in the trees, Canada geese, mallard ducks, squirrels, peacocks, and fresh water turtles... It is fun to be able to watch the action from our own windows or wander over to get a closer look.
I am really loving the Titika Activewear Harlem Hoodie which is one of the items I selected with my $200 gift card win on their February Twitter promotion. Titika is a Canadian company and I love their clothes. In this picture I have the sleeves rolled back, but there are thumb holes in the very long sleeves and I just think they are soooo cool. And notice what color it is?
Last night my brother, who lives in CA, called to wish me a Happy Birthday, and I talked with my nephew, who is going to be 16 in a few days, for quite a while. It was so enjoyable as I haven't seen them for a couple of years and I loved catching up on his news. He is so grown up, almost through grade 10, and planning an Air Force career. I am so excited for him and so proud of my baby brother for raising such a great kid.
And, I saw my doctor this week about the leg swelling and had some blood tests done which rule out blood clots and the possibiltiy of DVT... which is a huge relief. I am going to be doing some follow up to find out what is causing the edema but that is another story.
On another note, The Captain and I haven't been for a run since
I survived we ran our half marathon on May 13th! Tonight I will be mapping out a new route in the neighborhood for us to run on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing how the legs work. Wish me luck!
What are you excited about lately?
