How sweet it is ...

to be loved by you!

I close my eyes at night
Wondering where would I be without you in my life
Everything I did was just a bore
Everywhere I went it seems I’d been there before
But you brighten up for me all of my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you!!!

Jim took me to see James Taylor this weekend as an early Birthday present! (My Birthday is Tuesday, July 26th, hehehe) We had a great time and Mr. Taylor played my favorite songs .... "Carolina on My Mind" and "How Sweet it Is". I told Jim that this was a birthday gift not to be beaten and he reminded me that not much could top last year's "34th Birthday in Paris, France." While it is indeed hard to top that, in light of the year we have been having, this year's gift definately compares.

I didn't get much of a workout in this weekend. A short 2.5 mile walk on Sunday to my friend Liz's place. She took me out to lunch for my Birthday at the Potowmack Landing Restaraunt. (I did spell the name correctly - I think it is an Indian spelling) We had lovely Crabcake sandwiches and watched the ducks and sailboats meandering by. It was lovely.

All in all it should continue to be a wonderful week. My new running shoes are in and I am going to spend the weekend with my friend Nancy's beach house in St. Michaels. She has invited a small group of fellow triathletes and it will be awesome to meet the other women in person finally. I am going to work hard to be the resident cheerleader, director of "taper" miles for the ladies who are racing this weekend and keeper of the Toby Twins (at least during the dualthon).

Not too shabby a week in store!

Happy Birthday!!

I *wish* it was a beach house... but really just a 'close to the Miles River' house. :-)

Too cool. James Taylor is the coolest! Sounds like you had a blast!

Have fun with Nancy. I'm very jealous to be stuck in Florida for this weekend. It would have been so much fun!
