7 days, 6 dates, one man. And the holiday weekend…with a lil’ Abby update!

I don’t even have a nickname for him. He’s just Matt. I think that’s a good thing, though! lol

We had our first date last Monday night and have seen each other almost everyday since. I think I kinda like him! lol

He lives slightly out of town…and on Wednesday night I drove out to his ‘hood to join him for takeout pizza…which actually turned out to be quite a romantic dinner!

And you know we’re a match when he ordered the pizza and didn’t even have to ask me what toppings to put on…bacon and green olives. Obviously.

Yesterday we went on a 10km walk/hike just outside of Ottawa…it was beautiful and peaceful.

Anyway, all to say things are lovely right now…but if you’ll remember, this time last year I was happily with NG until suddenly, one day, he decided that we weren’t. It sucks, but I’m always now half waiting for that to happen again. I hope I can stop worrying about that and just relax.

Last Friday was Canada Day and I started off the day with a track workout

3 sets of 5x300m – jog across the infield between 300’s and 3 minutes rest between sets

It was a beautiful morning to be running in circles!

Then I got home and packed up the car and Abby and I headed to the cottage for some sun!

Which lasted for about 2 hours

Dark clouds quickly rolled in followed by torrential rain, thunder, lightning and periodic power outages. Sigh. Saturday morning was not pretty so we packed up the car and headed home earlier than planned.

Sunday morning I did my long run…my god, I am so lucky to be able to run where I run.

This is one of the many bridges that takes you over into the province of Quebec…from where you can see the beauty that is Ottawa.

And then I crossed back over into Ontario 🙂

11 miles…not too shabby!

Last night I decided to get takeout from a relatively new Indian restaurant near my house. I got an order of butter chicken and chicken madras – with plans of having leftovers for lunch today!

OMG. They weren’t kidding with the description of the chicken madras as being “very spicy”!!

And how’s Abby, you ask? To be honest, I’m not sure. She is just not herself. While I know that she is normally a pretty lazy dog…she is taking it to new levels right now and if it doesn’t get better soon, I’ll have to call the vet. This was her this morning…at 5:30am…WHAT DOG DOES THIS?!

But then, just as I think she’s on the brink of death, she does this…

Yeah, I caught her FRANTICALLY and POWERFULLY digging her way out of the backyard to get a discarded donut (??!!) on the other side of the fence.

That’s when I know she’s not DYING.

Happy Monday…and 4th of July to my American friends!!!

    Abby not wanting to walk at 5:30 am, and later digging like crazy to get to a donut is exactly what I would do…I’m sure we’re soulmates. ❤

    I'm so happy about your new guy, and re: the weather here (in Alberta)…clouds roll in and rain, wind and hail ensues shredding leaves and ripping branches off trees. Every. Single. Day. 😦

      Ba-hahahaha!! I know, I’m starting to think that maybe Abby is not a morning “person”!! lol

      Oh no – are you not having a good summer so far! Knock on wood, ours is great so far (minus the wee storm last Friday lol)
