Hello friends! We had the most gorgeous weekend ever here in DC weather-wise â€“ sunny with blue skies and crisp air in the low 70s. If only every weekend were so beautiful. ðŸ™‚
I took advantage by hitting up an old friend, the C&O Canal, for a run! I hadnâ€™t been out there in AGES â€“ I missed it.
Everything was looking very lush, green, and spring-like!
My favorite part of the trail is where it opens up to the Potomac. Stunning!
Basking in the sunshine:
The miles went by quickly â€“ before I knew it, weâ€™d finished out 5 miles. Done and done! Total time: 42:36. Average pace: 8:31 minute/miles. Great run!
Matt and I spent most of the weekend out and about â€“ on Friday night we went out to dinner for our 6 month wedding anniversary (canâ€™t believe how time has flown!), on Saturday night we were out and about with friends, and last night we went over to a friendâ€™s place for a BBQ. But I did make us a delicious brunch on Saturday:
Scrambled eggs with black beans, onions, green pepper, a little cheese, and topped with salsa! Grapefruit on the side. Yum, yum. I love black beans with eggs.
The other excitement of the weekend was starting the beginnings of an herb garden! Hometown Seeds sent me a kitchen herb value pack to test out over a year ago, but last year at this time I was busy studying for my grad school comprehensive exams, then we moved back from NC to DC, and then I started my hospital internship, so the seeds ended up getting totally lost and forgotten in the shuffle. I found them the other day and Matt and I decided to finally put them to good use!
We hit up Home Depot and bought some railing boxes to put our herbs in once theyâ€™ve germinated. Mattâ€™s task was putting them up!
And my job was to get our seeds started in this kit we bought.
A few of the seeds had to be soaked before we could plant them but the rest were ready to go.
The kit comes with a lid that acts as a sort of greenhouse!
Fingers crossed the seeds start growing so we can transfer them out into our herb boxes on the porch soon! Matt and I are both totally clueless about gardening, so if you have any tips, Iâ€™m all ears. ðŸ™‚
Hope you all had a great weekend, too! And stay tuned â€“ I have a fun workout gear giveaway coming at yaâ€™ll tomorrow!
