Three Things Thursday

1. I crossed off another bucket list item this week. Well truly I haven't made a bucket list but if I did this item would have been on it.  I went to my first Bruce Springsteen concert!  One thing I'll say for sure is that it won't be my last!  I went with 3 work colleagues and even though we didn't get home until 2 in the morning and we had to work the next day, it was worth it!

2.  I saw my 6th snake of the year running yesterday.  (I went for a pretty decent run the night after the concert on 2.5 hours of sleep.  I think I was still quite jazzed from the concert and was loving running to songs I had just heard live.)  Some years I see none and I am out there a fair amount between biking and running.  I am worried this could be a "big snake" year!  Yikes!  I am not ready for that. I promise no pictures if it is. I'm not hanging around long enough to take one.  When I do see one, I definitely get some speed work in.

3.  School is winding down and I am more than ready. This week we went to the Shelburne Museum.  The students loved the Ticonderoga as always and the carousel.  The school teacher in the school house role played an old fashioned teacher and she scared the pants off me to say nothing of my kids.  I look pretty darn good in comparison!  

Bonus: Some of my on line Mother's Day shopping is coming in!  I got two great shirts from LL Bean. Love them!  Plus some rather expensive biking shorts. One of the ladies I bike with just got some and convinced me to give them a try. I'll let you know.  Her theory was we put in enough miles on the bikes  to deserve some really good padding!

THAT's what I'll call it: Mother's Day shopping! I'm on a crazy purchasing jag lately. Love getting all the loot in the mail.
Yes, everybody's ready for school to be done here as well.

Forgot to tell you we saw The Boss several years ago. He was fantastic. Played long into the night

Bruce is awesome in concert. Glad you had such a great time. I remember going to the Shelburne museum when I was little when I would visit my Grammy in Burlington!

Once you've been to Bruce it usually isn't the last time you went to see him. After all these years and concerts we have seen, it still doesn't bore us at all. Every concert is different. Glad you had such a blast.

Some of my colleagues went to his concert when he was here in SA a while back and loved it. Our snakes are now hiding from the winter although the days are still quite warm. I loved your comment on my last post. I can always feel how you love the biking in your posts and hope people can feel how I love running in my posts. We are blessed to be able to do what we do. Have a great weekend.

Love Bruce Springsteen! I hope that skanes in your environs aren't dangerous. Here in Central Italy there are vipers which are really dangerous.
Have a nice wekend!

I saw a huge snake yesterday on my way to the park for a bike ride. I was safe in the car, but I hoped I wouldn't run into any family members on my ride.
