Rainy and dreary today, which meant no biking to bagels this morning. I frowned at this last remnant of snow on the north side of our garage.
I did some treadmill walking before starting out. The gym was totally empty when I first got there because the early young guys are on spring break and away. That works for me!

The guy that hogs the cable machine was not there, so I did a couple exercises on that and lingered. Sweet! Then I went and got John and we headed to North Country Cafe for brekkie. I had a wheat bagel.
John had a cinnamon scone which was really good!
Note: I had to take 3 pictures of John because he was goofing around. 🙄
It was thundering out by the time we left to go home. Good thing we didn’t try biking (I had thought about it).
I am really tired of this cold spring. I looked at my blog last year and had some tulip blooms already. Not this year. Our house is cooler as well (cause we’re cheap) so my seedlings are still small. Good thing, I guess, as they couldn’t go outside anyway!
This weekend also looks to be cool and rainy, so I made an executive decision to take off Friday afternoon and go for a long bike ride as that is the only nice day coming up. Then I will just work Saturday morning. I will do whatever it takes to get my fanny on the bike!
More roasted sweet potatoes. With tuna. 24 grams of protein, baby! Then I read Kelly’s post about the worm she found in her fish. I just don’t know if I can eat any more fish (except fish poppers).
John made up lattes today, per usual. Going to need a new machine soon. I takes as long to make the lattes as it does dinner now.
I also had a date with almond butter, not pictured, but very good.
Work was slower in the afternoon, so I got some guitar practice done. I have been so consistent with that this whole year. Think it was the promise to video myself that is doing that. Plus now I can play and it sounds like something as I get better.
Dinner was quick and tasty. I heated up chicken breast and topped with Laughing Cow and hot sauce.
The dish of blueberries is my easy blueberry sauce (done in the microwave tonight, guess that works!). It made a tasty side dish.
After dinner, I checked out how the tulips are going:
Some sun would certainly help these move along. (I’m looking in your direction Mother Nature…)
Painting tonight and a snack to be had. Think it will involve pumpkin!
