Phew – I have too much to say and not enough posts, so I am sorting out stuff (plus I don’t want to bore you all).
Before John’s race today, I had a lovely fall-inspired breakfast with whole grain cream of wheat, pumpkin and dried cranberries, topped with slivered almonds:
Delicious! Cream of wheat has 50 less calories per serving than oatmeal and yet, I was so full after eating this! Yay for whole grains!
It was really weird just watching in this race today. I have always been a participant, so it was weird waiting around. I just decided not to do this one with the duathlon coming up, plus a 5K on Halloween. I don’t need to do it all! I got in some pretty pictures at this race spot:
After John ran his fabulous race, he wanted a bagel – and you know I am not going to turn down an opportunity for that!!
More flavors of fall with this cinnamon apple bagel. Sooooo goooood!!!
Good thing this place is 15 miles away or I would be there every morning 😀
I was lucky enough to win 3 boxes of Holey Donuts in a drawing on Nutricious is Delicious, and the donuts arrived packed in dry ice. 3 kinds:
Sorry about the photo quality here. I was pretty excited to try these after seeing them everywhere on the net. I tried a couple donut holes: Vanilla Raspberry and Boston Cream:
Heated up in the microwave. I have to say that I was a little underwhelmed. The flavor was good, but they didn’t taste like a really good, hot and fresh donut. I thought they were a bit dry. I feel a little bad saying this, because I am thrilled to have a chance to try them and the company was very generous. John had one of the regular size donuts and said the same thing. Definitely a nice snack, and it will take a while to get through the boxes (Mom and Dad – guess what??), but I wouldn’t be ordering them for delivery. If they had a store where they are made fresh (which I hear is in the works), that would be another story.
Went out for a gorgeous bike ride today. John did his own brick by coming with. We did 14.5 miles. I love biking so much. I run a lot, but I am a biker at heart. I am getting really excited for next week. I just hope it isn’t raining. If it is anything like today, I will have a great race.
Found silly Pixie laying in one of my plants today. I don’t know why she wanted to lay like this! It doesn’t look very comfortable and she was there for a couple hours.
I will have a new veggie experiment for tomorrow that I actually had for dinner tonight. Yum! I need to sign off before this post becomes to epic.
Question: What weird thing does your pet do?
