It's Friday-eve, so I'm linking up with Carole and friends for Three on Thursday, this week with three things that I'm excited about right now!
1. Fall weather has arrived! We had a front move through yesterday that brought rain (and even, at one point, a tornado watch), and it left some decidedly cooler weather in its wake. Right now it's 57 F (that's about 14 C), and that looks to be the highest we'll get today. It will warm up a little in the next couple of days, but not a whole lot, and I am excited to get out my lighter sweaters and hand-knit socks!
2. Tonight is Curriculum Night at Rainbow's school. You might know this as parent/teacher night or back to school night; basically it's the evening at the beginning of the school year when the parents go to meet their child's teachers and hear about what they'll be covering in class that year. I'm really excited to go because I only know one of her teachers this year (and it's because she used to babysit me when I was about Rainbow's age and the teacher was in grad school). We also haven't been able to go in for this kind of thing since fall 2019, when she was still in the elementary school building, so things are bound to be different!
3. This weekend is the Great Race. It's a local event that the Mister and I have been doing together for years (we do the 5K), although in past years I've run it and I'm planning to walk this year. Last year it wasn't held at all, though you could still sign up and do it virtually (i.e., run on your own and submit your time online), which we did, though it certainly didn't have the same feel to it. One of the things I love best about this race is that you get views of the city you'd never otherwise get on foot. It would have been nice to run it, but I'm not going to push myself because I haven't been training and am not sure how my hip would take it, but since I've been regularly walking 5+ miles a day, I figure I can put on the gas a bit for a measly 3.1 miles.
I hope you have some things to be excited about this weekend, and I'll catch you back here on Sunday!
