Last night Matt and I hung up this beautiful flag that my grandmother gave me when she moved out of her house a few years ago. She has always had a thing for flags and had many in her house. This MAY have been a flag my grandfather brought back from WWII (because he did bring some home), but I’m going to guess it was a vintage find. We hung the ginormous flag on the porch in preparation for a party this weekend.
Also hung on the walls – some new Victory Garden posters!!
I now have these hung in three places in my house – that’s how much I love them. Just when I ran into Joe at the Seattle Fremont Market, we’ve been talking up doing a smaller set of four posters – 8×10 so they are easily frameable for a sale on OpenSky.
I picked up these white frames at Target for $6 a piece and put the posters (which come with a matted look) inside. The OpenSky sale will be coming in the next few weeks I hope!
Love how the make the porch feel more like a room (although I might take them down if a hurricane comes : ) )
I’m going to stick with my Monday Pump class for a bit because it’s mostly free weights anyways, but I decided to give up on traditional Body Pump for now – the bar was just too awkward to lift properly and it was hard for me to find the balance between challenging weight and a bar I could safely lift.
Thus, today I went to the gym and did a weight circuit using both machines and free weights. I felt great about it because I was able to use so much more weight with the support of the machines and felt I got a great burn! I did a circuit of 15 reps x 2 – took me about 30 minutes. Then some mega foam rolling. Plus 30 minutes of walking there and back.
Man, the weathermen were not joking about the heat!!
I walked outside with my lunch and my whole camera fogged. Back inside I went!
Lunch in the living room : )
I had a random mix today – leftover gratin
And cottage cheese with jam and some of Matt B’s crackers
Need to go to the grocery store for supplies and we have a meeting with a pediatrician this afternoon!
