Brick and pink pictures.

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today is my hump day.

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, I am going to take a picture of something pink every day for the rest of October.  Here is today’s item.


I flipped my schedule around today and got to work at 7:30 this morning!  It was cold this morning and I just wasn’t wanting to spend the morning out knowing it was going to warm up later.   Not to mention that my upper body is so sore from yesterday!  All up and down my sides – it’s crazy! So, I had some of this:


Yum, cafe au lait.  Plus some warm banana oats:


A couple hours after lunch, I was ready to do my brick!  John joined me, so we did a bit of a stop during the bike ride.  We rode for 8 miles to Cool Beans and had a bit of fuel of a biscotti and coffee.


I love training days that are relaxed like this!  If only I could stop for coffee on race day 😀  We then biked home and I went out for a 2 mile run.  It felt pretty good.  I am really getting used to the transitions again now.

It was weird exercising in the middle of the afternoon, though.  One thing I do like about my job is the flex time option.  I just need to work for 1 hour at my scheduled start time, then I can flex the hours if needed as long as I finish my work in a 12-hour window.  Can’t do that with an office job!  I just wish it paid better.

Dinner was one of my staples!


Familiar and satisfying.

Twin Peaks on DVD tonight – how about that for a flashback!  I love Netflix.  I am a film noir lover and it’s great to find those old gems.

Recently enjoyed movies:

  • Rope
  • MST3K (tons of these)
  • The Woman in The Window
  • Run Fat Boy Run

Question:  Are you a NetFlix subscriber?

    I was a subscriber long ago and have been thinking about it again. There are sooo many movies I want to see and it seems like the best option.

    Love those oats! I’ve considered being a netflix subscriber before, but I don’t even have a tv now. Haha! I do have a mini dvd player, but I’ve got very little time for tv right now. School takes up a HUGE chunk of my life 🙂

    I, too, am an old movie buff. I love TCM – that is usually all I watch when I watch TV. I also recently subscribed to Netflix and I love their classics section. They also have a selection of pre-code movies from the very early 30’s that are really amazing; it’s interesting to see how racy and violent films were back then, before the Hays Morality Code was enacted.
    Where do you get such lovely strawberries at this time of the year?

      How lucky I am that we have strawberries all year round up here in upstate NY. I don’t know why, but they are less than $3 a pound pretty much all year – so I eat a ton. Mostly from California or Florida, not very local I know – but I love them!

    I’ve never seen Twin Peaks but do remember it. Sounds like you had an exercise packed Tuesday for sure. It would be great to just run out and do what you want in the middle of the day, I envy you.

    Love the pink idea! Ha, don’t we all wish our jobs paid better? 😛 I do like the idea of flex hours though. That’s one thing I like about my current job – it’s always changing so I’m not stuck working at the same boring times every day.

    Umm. I have no idea what Netflix is. Is that an American thing? 😛

    I love the pink picture idea!

    We don’t have Netflix here in Holland but Twin Peaks brings back memories.
    I don’t watch too much tv, I have some tv series I follow but usually record them so I can fast forward the commercial breaks and I love a good movie every now and then.
