Some random stuff...

Thought I'd share some random stuff today...

1. I ran 5 miles on Sunday morning, running (well, jogging) the whole way, without walking!! That's the furthest I've ever run at once. :)

2. During the last mile of my run, my lower calf muscle started hurting and has been hurting ever since. :(
I've been icing it and it's definitely feeling a lot better today, but I'm nervous to run again. I'll probably try tomorrow with a short run.

3. Our annual Corn & Apple Festival is taking place this weekend. That means a weekend filled with walking around, seeing people, looking at stuff, attending the parade, going on rides, eating free corn and drinking free apple cider (& buying other yummy food), working in our church booth, going to the Show & Shine, riding the shuttle bus (my husband is the organizer of that), etc. Should be a fun weekend!

4. The kids have been attending a five-day club one street over this week. Which means that I've had an hour and a half break from them every afternoon. It's been kind of nice! I don't get much accomplished, but hey, it's still some good "me time." That's where they are as I type this and they'll go once more tomorrow. With our C&A Festival starting Friday, they won't have it that day.

5. The August challenge at My Scrap Shoppe is up. It's to use song lyrics on a page. I got two layouts done for the challenge, but I have some ideas for a few more...


This one has the lyrics from the song Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman.


And when I took this photo on the last day of school, I knew I had to use the title of Alice Cooper's song for this layout.

Well, as always, thanks for looking!

Now, I'm off to see what else I can accomplish in the next 45 minutes. ;)

Great layouts, Leigh! I just love that Cinderella song. It makes me teary every time I hear it. I love the photos that you used on the layout - so gorgeous! :)
YAY for some quiet 'me' time! Enjoy!

P.S. I nominated all my friends from CMK on my blog :)

I love your layouts!!! Especially that Cinderella one... to cute!

My kiddos went to 5 day club for the first time this summer. It was a nice little break in each day. Short and sweet. ;) They loved it!

Thanks for your nice comments on my blog!

J'adore la page Cendrillon, mais je ne connais pas les paroles de la chanson... J'aime beaucoup le fond de ta page.
