making due with what's in the album

No camera, no problem.

My little sister is coming up tonight.  Break out the cork screw!





The movie The Doors was on television while I was sick, so now I've been playing their music all week, Peace Frog is a great song to run to. And dance to.  I was also thinking of the time we were in Paris, and we went to Jim Morrison's grave:





I need to make a new play list for solo runs. Speaking of running, the weather is so crappy, I'm seriously afraid that spring is going to skip us again, and race day is going to be extremely hot, which would be lousy since my body is only used to cold temps right now.  I ran a hard 10k a few years ago in the Adirondack Mountains, it started at 10:00 in the morning, which is late for a summer race, and between the heat and the altitude, Luke had to give me a push at the end. 




On the other hand, it would be nice to have iced coffee. I have a can of coffee from Cafe Du Monde just waiting for me in my fridge, which makes delicious iced coffee.  Which is making me think of New Orleans.   Such a fun city, except for the time I broke my ankle.  But it was still fun.





Ever been to Acme Oyster Bar in N.O?  So. Good.  I love raw oysters.  This past Thanksgiving, My Marathon Runner/Triathlete Dad brought up a bunch from Maryland.  




Growing up on Long Island, every October we looked forward to Oyster Fest.  It's a great time, with the freshest seafood.






Now I'm in the mood for fish.  Luckily it's a Lenten Friday, and I'm making fish tacos for dinner tonight.

My sister better get here soon. 

Happy Weekend!

YAY - FIRST!! :)

I am not a brave eater, I'm not sure I could stomach a raw oyster, I don't even like the smell of them, but I do make oyster stew on Chrismtas Eve (but I won't eat it - ha).

Looks like a great weekend with your sister...I never had a sister and am always envious of the bonds for those that do. Enjoy!!! :)

First - great job linking one topic to the next to the next (which by themselves seem very random) especially without 'new' photos. What a fun post!!!

I have been thinking of you the last couple of days when I heard your 6-12" snow forecast. My heart ached for you. "C" and I ran in 52 degrees yesterday. The sky was blue, the breeze was warm-er, the grass is really getting green. Hope Spring arrives in your area REALLY soon!

Happy Friday!

Sister time sounds so fun. I do not like raw oysters, I do not like them Sam I Am. I so like The Doors and will probably be stuck on them for a while now, thanks!

YAY for sister time!

BLECH for oysters!

I seriously can't even stand to watch someone slurp them down. Makes my stomach churn. lol

Susan Fobes said...

Hmm...not real crazy about oysters. I never tried them, but that's because of the slime thing-it's a no go.

We've had a dusting of snow two days in a row here, and I' drinking hot chocolate and it's April 1? I hope the weather turns around for both our sakes!

Chris and I went to New Orleans when I was pregnant with my first baby 7 years ago. The first night we were there we ate at Acme Oyster House. We liked it so much, we ate there 2 more times in the same trip :) Crazy hugh?

Caratunk Girl said...

Oysters gross me out. I am scared of the oyster.

Hope you have lots of fun with your little sister!
