Chillaxin' on Saturday

Today after a hot 4 miler at Silver Comet, Hubby and I headed out to the Decatur Book Festival.  It is the largest independent book festival in the U.S.  Not only that, but it also turns out that Decatur is a charming little artsy, liberal hub that hubby and I really enjoyed.  The book festival was great and we got some books and had some great food at a little Mexican place and some good beer.   All in all it was a great day, a little warm maybe, but this is Atlanta. 

The Coolest part was hubby was a big hit at the Book Festival.  He had on his UC Santa Cruz shirt sporting the Banana Slug Mascot (no seriously that is their mascot).  Of course for you movie buffs you may remember it of Pulp Fiction Fame.  At the Book Festival there was a children's author that had written a book called the Sophisticated Slug the story of Sammy the Slug (you guessed it the mascot.)  Well she had to take a picture of him and it already made it to Facebook.  Also tons of folks at the festival really appreciated hubby's liberal schooling.  He was feeling among his peeps.  Of course we had to buy the book and the author even signed it.

It was a fun day.  Finally had a holiday weekend with some decent weather.  Don't know if it will hold out, but we enjoyed today and that is what it is all about.  Long run on tap for the weekend but haven't decided which day since we have an extra.  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!!
