1. It was hot and muggy yesterday and I just needed something cool and refreshing, so I decided to grab a radler from the fridge. Needless to say, it went down pretty good. There’s something about having the grapefruit juice in there that’s perfect for summer days. I have a couple more left in the fridge along with a few Magner’s apple ciders.
2. The Stampede officially started today. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a ten day long fair/rodeo. This morning there was a parade through downtown Calgary. There’s all kinds of rides, games, exhibits, fireworks, concerts, and food at the Stampede grounds, in addition to the rodeo events. It’s a pretty crazy week and a half with lots of partying that happens. I wasn’t planning on going this year (I don’t think it really changes much year to year), but I was given a free admission ticket, so I might head down next week. Moist is playing Thursday night, so I might head down then. The concert will bring me back to my fourteen year old self in junior high when I was a huge Moist fan.
3. I just finished reading The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty (affiliate link). I have to admit that it was better than I thought it was going to be. Sunday morning I spent an hour and a half finishing it. I literally couldn’t put it down because I had to know what was going to happen to the characters. If you haven’t read it yet I’d really recommend it. It’s a perfect vacation read.
4. I’ve been studying up a storm the last few days. I have a big test coming up in my anatomy class. I have to know the heart, circulatory and lymph systems, muscular tissues and muscles. I’ve reviewed the first three so far, and after taking some practice quizzes I’m feeling pretty good. I think I have a solid grasp on them. Tomorrow I’m working on muscle tissues and muscles, then I take the test on Sunday. With every chapter I read I’m continually amazed at how efficient our bodies are. It’s also makes me very grateful that I don’t have any major health concerns and my body works as well as it does.
Leave me a comment with something fun that happened over the last week in your life.
