Thanks for you comments on my musings earlier LOL! Back to regularly scheduled programming…..
Woke up too early again today. It was a little after 6:00 and I went to bed after 11:30. I really do better with 7 hours of sleep, so why does my body persist in waking up early? Anyway, I just got up and had an early start to my day. Cooked up some protein pancakes. Since I can’t be tall, I thought I would stack my breakfast high!
Again, dark for breakfast! Weird….
Worked for an hour and it warmed up to about 45, so it was time to get in a run. I decided on a ‘me’ run today. I went out without a watch, and just put on the Sweeney Todd soundtrack and let my body tell me how fast it wanted to go. I sped up when I felt like it and slowed down when I wanted to. I did 3.2 miles and felt very refreshed afterwards (and super sweaty). I spent so much time basically since March having fairly regimented fitness routines to train for all my events, so it feels good now to relax a little and just enjoy flexing my fitness, so to speak.
In my effort to get the cereal out of the house, I incorporated it into lunch 😀 Yum. There is cereal under there, I promise!
Kat asked for a macro of my ring – and here it is:
This is actually now my wedding band. John and I had channel set diamond bands that matched. Both of us have had problems with rings being too loose, especially in colder weather. John had taken to wearing his ring on his pinky, and low and behold, one day it wasn’t there and we couldn’t find it anywhere. We retraced as many steps as we could think of in the previous day, but to no avail. John was actually more upset about it than I was. I would rather lose a ring than lose him, know what I mean? Anyway, we had been contemplating new bands, and really wanted one with a celtic knot design. Couldn’t afford the ones we really liked, though. On a trip to Colorado to visit John’s folks in early 2008, we shopped at ArtMart in Boulder (which is a cool place) and we saw these rings there. $20 each! We both loved them and figured they would be good bands in the interim until we can get some gold ones (maybe for our 15th anniversary). It’s so funny because we both get so many compliments on these rings than we ever got on our other bands. Go figure.
It’s my weekend starting tonight, so John and I had a little celebration:
We split this beer – cheers!
I look so tired in this picture. Guess that is because I am LOL! The beer is good. Hints of pumpkin and spice. Dinner was a stirfry made with a batata, which is a Mexican sweet potato. I’ll do a GVE on it tomorrow in detail. It tastes kind of like a chestnut, but has the texture of a potato. Kicked it up with some chopped seranno peppers, too. Bring on the heat! Fun!
In true weekend decadence fashion, we ate in the living room on the couch with the TV on. Sometimes it just feels good to be really casual.
I am so happy it’s the weekend! It feels so great to be free for a couple days. I am just about done with that soap order. I’ll finish up the last 2 batches tomorrow. Then I need to get a couple pumpkins to carve if I can still find some around.
Pink item of the day! Only a couple more days in October for this.
I am going to have a relaxing night with my 10 candy corn kernels, some tea, and Project Runway (if I can stay awake for it….).
I am shaking things up with the football dinner and am having John take me out for breakfast instead! Hopefully we can bike there in the a.m.
Question: Do you ever eat in front of the TV?
