Her Acceptance is the Way We Pray

Dorking out in a cut-out.

What a beautiful weekend! The weather couldn't have been more perfect. Of course, that means I didn't get a lot of cleaning done inside. But I did get my lawn mowed and a few other outdoorsy things done...On top of lots and lots of running. Aaaaaahhhhh.

Friday night was great. The guy came over after work. He had kind of a rough day, so we talked about it a little before we went to get sushi. The food was wonderful. I let the guy order a bunch of stuff I'd never had before and loved all of it. We each had a Sapporo too.

After dinner, we talked about going to get a drink, but the weather was so perfect, that he asked if I wanted to go for a walk or hang out outside instead. We ended up going to the store and getting some beer and going back to my place to drink on my deck. I started to make a fire, but we couldn't really get it going and we decided it was warm enough that we didn't really need to mess with it anyway. It was really nice just to hang out outside in October and drink beer and talk.

Saturday was heavenly. Stinky worked most of the day. I ran my 10 mile route and got a few things done. After Stinky got off work, she wanted me to go to the mall with her. It's not my favorite thing in the world, but I did it for her.

In the evening, Stinky went to her boyfriend's house and the guy came over to our place. We hung out at home for a bit, but the guy had promised our friend Bry that we'd stop by the Dublin for a beer. Since there wasn't a home football game, the bar was pretty quiet. We had a beer, shot the shit with some guys, but then realized we'd be just as happy at my place hanging out, so we hit the road.

Today I just ran my easy 6 mile route and then went to Prairie Lights to finally get the book, Born to Run. In the late afternoon I went to G.'s place to hear about her trip to Mexico and then this weekend's kayaking trip. Both her roommates were there, so we had a great girly gab session. It really is the perfect way to end a weekend.

Aye, a perfect fall wknd it was.
I spent a goodly portion of int on our patio eading Moby Dick and enjoying the ambiance of falling leaves and the smell of fall in the air. No burning leaves yet, but soon!

This is the part I think is really really cool - how you've lately focused such great energy on your place and space - for you - but if gives you a solid, really solid and creative spot to invite people into.
(That was stupid run on and with body/sentence parts in all the wrong places and I don't care much because it really was the idea of what you've created that I wanted to applaud. It's just cool.)

I love trying different foods, and if they taste great that's a bonus.

What is Sapporo?

Sounds like a great weekend...I am loving the weather lately.
It seems as though you and The Guy are very like minded and compatible!

Careful while reading Born To Run. Take the common sense items out of it but don't drink the "You must run barefoot" Koolaid. I have a couple friends who have hurt themselves so far.

Sounds heavenly!

A sushi place just opened at the end of my block. Looking forward to trying it when I'm done with nursing school.

What's the deal with sushi? Seems like people adore it or it's 'meh'. Still gotta get to Denver to try some.

Glad you had a great weekend!
