Dan put pavers down to make a small patio for the grill this week, and while he was doing that he unearthed a heart-shaped rock.

I snatched it up and washed it off, thinking it was the perfect rock to paint.

It was my first attempt at rock painting, though I’d been given a box of acrylic paints as a get well gift last year.

I tried (emphasis on the “tried”) painting a gray ribbon on a pink heart for brain tumor awareness month. #GoGrayInMay

Please also notice that for the first time ever I completed three twenty-minute sessions on the exercise bike on Saturday! That’s a whole hour in one day! I also pedaled the equivalent of 100 miles for the month of May already. I’m proud, even though I’m very, very sore.
