Welcome to another weekend wrap-up. After a very lazy weekend last week, this one was quite busy. Thankfully Sunday was calmer, but Friday and Saturday were quite fun.
At the spur of the moment, I joined a couple friends and went to the Plano Children's Theater production of Les Miserables. These kids are from middle schools and high schools in the area, and are all very good singers. A couple people from our hockey group had a son playing Gavroche, and on a side note, he's met Ramin Karimloo, who's done various roles in Les Mis productions, including the 25th anniversary concert shown on PBS, AND he's also been the Phantom, including that 25th anniversary. I enjoyed the production, and ended up doing my run Saturday morning to the music of Les Mis. I've got the 10th anniversary concert soundtrack on my iPod and there are a lot of songs. It's one of those where all the lines are sung... I can't even think of one line that's only spoken.
Saturday was another treadmill run. It's the same story every September - I want summer to end, and it just doesn't want to. It was another muggy morning, so treadmill it is. I don't hate the treadmill because here, I gotta use it if I want to keep running in the hot months. I felt so good when I reached 2.5 miles I continued on to see how I felt with each successive quarter-mile, and I finished out a 5k. Not bad. Only 0.9 to go to get to 4 miles for the virtual run I signed up for. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I might be able to do that outside by the time I work back up to 4 miles.
Saturday afternoon was a wine tasting hosted by someone in my soccer circle. It was put together by I think a distributor in town, and we tasted 1 sparkling, 3 whites, 9 reds, and 1 moscato. I'm not a fan of moscato but I tried it anyway. Nope. I ended up ordering 3 bottles, 1 white, 2 red, and research the vineyards. The bottles are cheaper from the vineyards, but I'll enjoy the 3 I ordered regardless. The best one of the tasting was a Syrah blend that might have gone down too easily. The pitch person said Syrahs are actually best with steak, not Cabernets, which are good, but Syrahs are better.
My Tinkerbell Ornament came too. I love all the little details Disney puts in their ornaments, and this one has a few. The scene is from Tinkerbell in the sewing drawer, tangled up in the buttons and knick-knacks.
Sunday was a lazy afternoon, and now that it's Monday, new shows! Big Bang Theory premiers tonight and tomorrow is NCIS New Orleans.
Linking up with Hoho Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for Weekend Wrap-up.
