I can't bring myself to say happy Monday, I'm at work and I'm getting a cold... so can I just say Morning, and call that a greeting?

Another week of warm weather and summer!
Nothing exciting happened the first few days, until Friday. We were out running in a local park, it was hot and very humid, but the running was getting done. Then heavy rain started to pour! Roger ran over to a small roof by the trail we were running, and waited out the rain, I kept running because the cool rain felt so amazing! I only did about a half mile, before my shoes got squishy, but it was amazing!!
Saturday we went to Carlisle for their annual Summer Fair races. Each year, they have a lot of Summer Fair events, part of the events are the free 10K/5K and the Harrisburg Symphony concert.
It was another very hot and humid day, resulting on a slow 10K for me; but an enjoyable race. A bunch of River Runners were there, and this time I made the group picture!
I also got my picture with Jodi... whom I chased for 4 mile before losing her at a water stop.
After the race, we wanted to do some hiking, but there were very dark clouds around us and it was raining a lot. Instead, we went to see Wonder Woman, it was amazing!! Even if you are not into superhero movies, this movie is all about empowering women!
Sunday, after running I picked up my son and we went back to Carlisle for the Harrisburg Symphony concert. He likes hearing the symphony playing, especially when they do the Star Wars songs! We arrived 2 hours early to snatch good seats and good parking. We picked up food at Panera and played card games until the concert started.
We saw Megan there, and I sent my son to bring her back to say hi... yes, that's the mother I am... sending my son to grab my blog friends!
I have two random stories for you. On Sunday before our long run, we stopped at Panera and I picked up a large iced green tea to have after the long run. As soon as we got back to the car, I had a few long sips, it had been a hot and sweaty run, so the cold ice tea tasted delicious. I gave the cup to Roger, because I'm nice and wanted to share... I went to the coffee shop to get something to eat, and when I returned Roger told me he spilled the rest of the ice by accident. Sad Face.
On our way to the concert, we picked up Sandwiches from Panera, and again, I got a large iced green tea. When we were walking to find a spot to sit on the lawn, my son was carrying the bags of chips and my ice tea. I was carrying the chairs, our dinner and my book pack. I set up the chairs and went to grab my ice tea from my son, when it slipped out of his hands, hit the chair arm rest, popped open and spilled all over the grass. I was not meant to have Panera Ice Green Tea this weekend.
Last story... Roger has been keeping the apartment very cold... so cold, that my son and I are sleeping on fleece PJs and double blankets. So this week, I put my foot down! I told Roger that the thermostat has to stay at 70 F ( 21.11 C) at night, or he can rent a freezer somewhere else and sleep there. He can put a fan next to him if this temperatures bother him, but we are not sleeping on winter PJs anymore!
My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor. It has been a pretty amazing read so far.
What is the magic thermostat number at home ?
Any big plans for the holiday?
What was the last precious thing you spilled? or somebody else spilled for you?
