Quick And Easy

Memorial Day is coming up and that means it's almost time for our annual build-your-own-boat race. Liz and I made a trip down to the Lake House this weekend to get a jump on building my boat (and to relax by the water).

I spent the afternoon working on my boat and the basic frame is pretty similar to some of the other boats I've built in the past. Everything came together relatively quickly and this kind of frame is becoming easier and easier to build.

(The fruits of my labor.)

When it was getting close to dinner time, I put the boat building aside for the day and went for a quick lap around the lake. I've run around this lake so many times, it's also becoming an easy routine and it was relaxing to run the familiar loop after a day of construction.

After 3 easy miles and a quick shower, I slipped on my new compression sleeves, had a delicious roast and veggies for dinner, and put my feet up for the rest of the evening. It was a good day!
