After a long run in the sweltering heat, nothing’s more delicious than a tall glass of ice-cold water. Mmmm!

Vietnamese Noodle House Heaven!

Ready to dive into a bowl of hot noodles at a Vietnamese noodle house

I love to go to the Vietnamese noodle house. Any Vietnamese noodle house. Dipping refreshing spring rolls into peanut sauce + slurping tasty noodles and broth = ┬ánoodle house heaven! I could just eat bowls and bowls of that warm, savory soup. (more…)

And to think, because I waited until peak sun hours to get outside, I almost opted to forgo what turned out to be a great bike ride. It was hot, but it sure was fun! Cool-off prescription: some healthy blueberries and watermelon plus a giant, unhealthy (yet delicious!) blueberry muffin. As for my bike trip entertainment, I listened to The Power Trip by Jackie Collins. The blueberries? Juicy. The watermelon? Juicy. The Jackie Collins novel? Juicy, juicy, juicy!
