First off – Happy Birthday to John! Welcome to year 43 😀
I was up early knowing I had a lot to do today. I was out the door at 6:30 to do C25K day 2. This first week does 60 second runs alternating with 90 second walks. I am using Robert Ullrey’s podcasts for these so I don’t have to use a watch. I used these 2 years ago and when I first started and it brought back a flood of memories. Funny how sounds or smells can do that. I think about how far I have come athletically in the last 2 years, even with an injury setback. So far so good. My thigh is a little tired, but with only 8 minutes of running total, it is hard to say if there are any consequences yet.
Got back and did the ganache frosting for John’s cake and got to work. I had the most productive day, which I love! I also made breakfast for both John and I. We each had a banana bread breakfast pudding!
Mine topped with coconut butter and jam, his was topped with coconut butter and chocolate chips
Pixie chillaxed all day. Surprisingly awake here, too.
Then she got what she really wanted, which was some belly rubbing:
She has John trained really well.
I almost didn’t want to stop for lunch as I was being really productive. How is that for crazy? But food always calls 😀
We had an offer for John to get a free birthday cupcake at the coffeehouse, so we wandered there in the mid afternoon. Love working from home!
John got his cupcake and coffee. I had just a latte.
Well, not had just a latte. I had a very good latte 😀
I finished up work a little early, uploaded my timesheet and it feels like the weekend! Oh wait, it is only Thursday. Oh well. Still going out for dinner because of John’s special day! He chose:
I am very happy to go here because there are lots of choices. John had deep dish pizza. I love the nut crusted goat cheese and blueberry salad, so that is what I ordered:
Although they did put too much dressing on it. Low fat or not, still too much dressing.
Then it was home for some cake and coffee with the family. I whipped up the ganache to make frosting for the cake and it turned out well.
Look – I even did 4 layers on this cake. That is how much I love my hubby.
Boston Cream Pie? Success!
Pixie even enjoyed some wrapping play time.
Now time for Futurama!
