Sweat Blisters

Hayley wanted to help me mow the lawn.
Today was a rather peaceful day. I just puttered around the yard fixing and cleaning things that have been neglected for the last several months. It is kind of the calm before the storm because everyone is converging for Sarah's graduation and the big party of the following Saturday. Sarah graduates June 9, the party is June 11 and anyone who knows and loves Sarah, Sharely, Ben, Alycia, Brandon or us is invited to stop by and say hello.

Today I also went for a six mile run. I love getting out on the trails. I kind of wish I'd done it more when I was young and healthy but hey, better late than never right?

The funniest thing happened after my run. Since we all got fried at Brandons commencement and then further embedded the burn at Ben and Sharleys commencement my sun burn on my arms is just getting ready to peel. In case you wanted to know I sweat a lot. After the run I took a look at my arms and blisters of sweat were forming underneath my outer layer of skin. It looked rather gross but it was fascinating. I remember that once the same thing happened to Alex but his sweat blisters were much bigger than mine. I took a shower and they all washed off. My arm in now in full peel mode.

It's been a great day.

The average persons foot sweats a cup of sweat in one average day.

You inspire me. I wish I could bump it up another .5 miles to get to that 6 you are running....but I am SO beat at 5.5. ; ( And it's not even as hot here, as where you are. Don't know how you do it.

P.S. Happy Graduation to Sarah!
