Good Morning friends! How was your weekend? I always love seeing what other people spend their weekends doing, whether mundane or completely out of the ordinary, it is always interesting to see what people like to spend their down time doing. I might just be nosy, I like to think of it as being the only person at the office who actually cares, “How was your weekend?” ;)
Friday Night kicked off just the way a Friday night should…..with my parents.
Just kidding, sort of. Friday evening, I convinced my parents who are in town to try out, Tazza Kitchen a semi-new restaurant in Raleigh I have being meaning to try for weeks now! I ordered the Wood Oven Chicken and it was wonderful, the real treat though was the zingy carrot slaw. Tazza, I shall be back!
After an easy 6 miles shake out run Saturday Morning, my Dad and I did the one and only thing you should ever do on a crisp Fall Saturday morning…
Went to the second best (in my humble opinion) Farmer’s Market in the US, the North Carolina State Farmers Market, located here in Raleigh. We walked away with huge haul that included everything from winter squash to pepper, bok choy, and can you believe it, three medium pumpkins and four gourds for $9!
Next on the list was the Cary Dwali Festival. The Triangle (composed of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill) has a thriving Indian population, and rumor had it that this festival was supposed to be wonderful. We decided to jump at the chance to relish some truly incredible Indian cuisine!
I capped off the afternoon by cheering on the runners at the Oktoberfest Run Greek 5k.
Sunday Morning’s 12 mile run was 80%, “Running is the greatest thing on the planet, I love each and every thing about it.” 20%, “ouch, ouch, ouch, this sucks, I don’t think I can make it.”
Luckily thought the vast majority was wonderful! Random side note of the day, I saw a bunch of ROTC kids running along the greenway, and had a revelation, I think the rest of the world would hate running 50% less id they all discovered the glory of (Expensive, I know,) running socks. Seriously, those babies make all the difference in the world!
After church, I joined my family for lunch at a spot I confess I have been dying to try out since before moving to Raleigh.
Lunch at the Carolina Country Club. Here is what I now know, it is a good thing I do not have their leather club chairs in my house, because I would never, ever, ever stand up again!
After chores, chores, chores, it was time for dinner.
The picture may not induce mouthwatering but our Bok Choy and Asian marinated, pork chops were oh so yumm!
I have a feeling that things may be a little quiet at CCR this week due to a hectic and TBD schedule, but I hope to get at least one post up.
Now, let’s all go out there and have absolutely fabulous, weeks!
