Today was a good day!

Met with Michelle (Westcoastrunner) this morning and watched her daughter play keeper for her team in a match. Good game and it was great to be back on the pitch in an outdoor game, even if I was on the sidelines. It takes a certain kind of girl to play keeper (basically fearless and determined) and Michelle’s daughter has that.

After the game, we went and grabbed lunch at Panera and then went grocery shopping before coming home to make gluten-free brownies for a family gathering tonight. We used a recipe on the brownie mix bag from Bob’s Red Mill and made a cream cheese version that got oos and ahhs from the family. I had to leave the party to go play my soccer game and I think watching the Timbers game yesterday and watching Michelle’s daughter play today put fire in my shoes. We won the game 8-4 and I passed 3 balls to the striker who just tipped the ball into goal! My team said I was on fire, most likely because I didn’t get stuck in defense like I normally do.

Good game and then back to the family gathering to fill my belly with good food and conversation. Wish the weekend didn’t have to end!
