Did y'all know that I am rather enamored with the Instagram app on my iPhone?

It's true, I am.

In case you haven't heard (and by the way, where have you been?), Instagram is a free photo app for your iPhone that not only offers tons of cool filters, it's also a social media thing-a-ma-jig because you can post your photos and then your InstaBuddies (oh, look I made up a word) can comment on them and so forth.

Jeannett at Life Rearranged hosts a fun linky party each week to let us show off all our random Instagram (and/or regular camera phone photos--did you know I like Hipstamatic too?) and I decided to jump on in on the fun.

Because I'm wild that way.

And wouldn't you know after all my Instagramraving ('nother made up word) I only have a handful to share with y'all this week.
This was Hoppy (and hopefully he is NOT in the past tense since dear daughter did release him back into the wild yesterday) the grasshopper dear daughter captured and left on my nightstand.
We celebrated the first day of summer Tuesday by stopping by heaven, er...I mean the library.

I had to have the humiliating conversation at the check-out desk about how we've searched high and low and can not for the life of us find Snowball, a Puppy Place book that was due three weeks ago. That was a first. They were really nice though and stopped the accruing fine and gave us six months to *keep searching* before we (and by we I mean dear daughter) coughs up $$ to replace it.

I'm totally caught up in Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks right now (well, obviously not right this very minute). I love her writing.
I ran four miles this morning.

And when I say ran I mean I followed 2:1 run:walk intervals, but still there was running. And buckets of sweat.

That makes a total of 14 miles so far this week.

And I'm a little proud of that.
I loved the way the sun was peeking through the clouds this morning, so much so I had to pull the car over and document it.

And there you have it my friends.

Happy weekend y'all!

P.S. If you use Instagram and want to be InstaBuddies (c'mon, it'll be fun!), I'm marathonbird.

  8. You've got nothing on me and my library fine humiliation. I can't even tell you how much I paid the other day. And this is with email reminders about due dates and the library literally across the street from the neighborhood. Shameful.

    Good job on the running! I have done a fat lot of nothing beyond Zumba and I am ready to change that. I think.
