Three Things Thursday

1. This weekend coming promises to be exciting.  I am doing a fun Vermont touristy thing on Friday I have never done. We may go brewery touring on Saturday. I may offer to be the DD since I am racing on Sunday.  Sunday is a local tri.  And I will extend my weekend into Monday. Monday is my birthday and that is surely a holiday and a weekend day and all that. I am going to do a bike ride I love, spend time with my son - agenda TBD and then the evening will be very special. I am going to sky dive. I have always wanted to do it.  I turn 60 on Monday so it seems like the perfect time to do it.  Believe me there will be more to come on this.
I hope I'm smiling as much as this person.


2. I've been catching up with friends I haven't seen much.  Today I go to lunch with a friend I haven't seen in forever and last week I went to a movie with a different friend I hadn't done anything with in forever.

3. I had a relaxing bike ride close to home, no need to use the bike rack.  The route was hilly but I relaxed and took my time.  It is a loop from my house which is hard to come by without hills and dirt roads.  Well, there were hills and dirt roads but I just dealt with it.  Loved it!

Sounds like a great weekend coming up. We have a public holiday tomorrow so my long weekend starts in a few hours. I did sky diving many years ago when I was a student. It became just too expensive to continue but I loved it.

Have fun skydiving! My daughter and I tried to go several times and it was always too windy. Hopefully we will this fall. Can't wait to hear about your experience. Happy Pre-Birthday!

Have a great birthday! And no thank you on the skydiving.

Yay! What a line up! I hope I get to skydive before I'm 60 too, I've always wanted to but never done it. Hope you have a fantastic time and a wonderful birthday! I can't believe you're 60, by the way - so fit and strong!

Sounds like an awesome weekend! Good luck in the tri. Have fun sky diving! I did it for my 25th birthday and definitely smiled that much the entire time. The pictures are kind of funny. :)

You are amazing! You don't place any limits on your life - just go for it! Happy sixtieth birthday (for Monday). I wish you were close enough so I could bake you a cake.

You are so brave! What a great way to celebrate a milestone. YES, your birthday should most certainly be a holiday!!

3 optional days of inservice this week (for which we were paid pretty nicely), then two days of inservice next week, then kids the following Monday. Where oh where did my summer go??

OMG, sky diving, that is so awesome. Hope you have a blast, and happy, happy birthday. Good luck on the tri.
P.S. Can I take off work on your birthday, since it's a holiday?
