Happy Marathon Day!

It’s Patriots Day, also known as Boston Marathon Day.  If you aren’t lucky enough to be in Boston where the race is show on the local CBS station here is how you can watch it.

Boston MArathon

There are three American women who have a real shot of winning this year, Shalane Flanagan, Molly Huddle and Desi Linden, unfortunately Jordan Hasay had to withdraw due to a foot injury.

I’ll be live streaming from somewhere near Cleveland, yes, Cleveland, (as in Ohio), but before I tell you about that let me finish telling you about last week.  We were in Venice visiting with MacGyver’s sister and husband.

We went to a few of our favorite restaurants and spent some time on the beach.

And then they came back to Clearwater with us.  I had to work a bit on Friday but that morning we all went to breakfast at Lenny’s before they left.  It was wonderful.  MacGyver and I were also excited to show them some of the antiques and things we’ve acquired since the last time they were here.  We were sad when they had to leave but we didn’t have long to dwell.  I had a serious amount of packing to do and then at 5:30AM on Saturday morning MacGyver drove me to airport and after an hour and a half delay, I was headed to Columbus.

We spent the first part of the day antique shopping in Delaware.

And then we had lunch at Bun’s Restaurant, a 150 plus year old eatery in the downtown area which was charming.

I went to Bun’s and I got a T shirt.

And then we headed over to Easton Town Center where I was able to see my favorite blue pond in front of my favorite store, Tiffany and Co.

We also hit up a lot of other stores, (but really are there any other stores?) including the Lego store where I took a hiatus among the other girls.

We finished shopping sometime around 10PM.  The kid literally wore me out.  He walks a million miles a minute and he wanted to show me everything.  We did a lot of the same things on Sunday as well as some sight-seeing.

I was so excited to see my most favorite flower in the world has bloomed all over the city.

I picked a few while we were out and about.  I couldn’t help myself.  I wish we would have had nicer weather on Sunday because the kid and I wanted to visit a park or two but it literally rained for most of the day.  It may actually snow a bit today but that’s okay, we’re headed off to Cleveland and regardless of what we do, I’m hanging out with the kid and that is everything.

How was your weekend?

Are you watching the Boston Marathon today?
