holding down the fort

we let the boys sleep in their 'fort' last night.
this may look like an ordinary couch to you, but believe me, it's not. it's a fort.

i love pictures that tell a story

like this:

couch to 5k

i jumped on the 'running' bandwagon (ha! jumped. more like was pushed kicking and screaming in front of the wagon and it plowed me down). i am running a 10k in minneapolis in october with my sis-in-law. unfortunately, 'bandwagon' conjures up a wagon. on wheels. pulled by horses. in other words, me not doing any labor. or sweating. hmmm... yeah, that's not really accurate. lol. running is hard work. no lazing about on a wagon, waiting to arrive at my destination. instead, i am the horse.

yesterday was my first day. i'm training with my friend, mimi. she is running a 5k with her friend at the end of august. wish us luck. (if you want to know more about the program we are using to get ready for the race, search 'couch to 5k'.)

green fish is the best fish

one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish - oh wait! and green fish too.
check out my lunch (and some yummy planned-overs):

i seasoned the walleye (that bfp caught in mobridge earlier this summer) with this:

garlic, salt, onions, chives, shallots, green peppercorn...
this seasoning might turn the fish green, but it is fantastic!!
