Weird soup

Barley, water, veggie broth, garlic, red onions, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, celery salt... boiled, drop 2 eggs. On top, add sugar snap peas, green onions, avocado.
So weird. So good.
So happy with my new Le Crueset bowl!

Old photo

Was searching through my photos and found this one of little-me all dressed up and ready to play some soccer!

It's funny, I remember this so clearly. I remember the team and the players and the immense pressure I felt as the goalie.

But I look at the photo decades later and I look like a baby. It is a good reminder for me that young doesn't matter, children have pressure, stress, things that loom large and make them anxious, and they don't know that in 20ish years they will look back on them and grin. I'm glad my parents took me so seriously, because I sure did.

My old room

Here's a photo of my nearly-2-year-old asleep this morning in my childhood bedroom. That's a crazy rabbit hole of thoughts... could never have dreamed up how wonderful he is and it would be to be his mom.

Sprint Triathlon!

Competed in my first Sprint Tri today with Rosie!!! I was really sick, but I did it! The 5k run was hot, and I could have gone faster. The biking was long (13.1 miles) & definitely the hardest part, and the swim was disproportionately short (200 meters).

Husband surprised me by showing up to cheer me on -- I thought he had to work! So grateful for him, my sister for doing it with me, for a dad who cheered us on and insisted on selfies, for my aunt who came early to say hi, for sister who ran the 5k in the morning and came back to cheer us on...

I am sunburned, sore and sick, and also satisfied.
