This past weekend was Father’s Day, a day to celebrate the dads in our lives. For us here in Syracuse, New York, the spring has been rainy and cool and not at all like our normal June hot weather. Sunday, for example was around 60 degrees and steady, soaking rain. So, instead of our usual clambake on the deck, I decided to make meatballs and sauce!
I love to lift. Nearly every day, the first thing I do when I wake up – 5 a.m. on weekdays – is head to the gym. Currently that health club is Athletic Apex – New York, located in DestiNY USA in Syracuse, New York. This place is amazing but part of its draw is the specially-trained personal trainers it has on staff.
It’s been a hot last few days in Central New York, much hotter than we are used to. The thermometer rarely goes above 90 during a normal summer but so far, we’ve hit and/or surpassed it a few times and it’s only July 3! Typically when it’s this hot, I avoid drinking too much alcohol due to dehydration and just because it makes me feel like garbage when it’s so hot. But, this past weekend, I had some fun loading up the coolers for a graduation party to celebrate my husband’s graduate degree.
