Boy, today was a gorgeous day! The sun was out and it was in the low 50s. I finally see my birdbath again – yay!
Work with me here, this has melted a lot. My birdbath was totally covered. Too bad it is going to get covered with more snow to the tune of 7 inches and hoping it isn’t more than that. The bobsled chute is melting, although still pretty high.
It felt so good when I went to the gym in the afternoon. I am still trying to figure out a schedule. I have the days down, but not the time. It has more to do with how much work there is when I check in the morning. Maybe I just won’t ever have a set time I go. Anyway, my gym built on a new area to take part in the Crossfit craze. They don’t call it Crossfit, though, just cross training. It’s the same stuff, though. The nice thing is that when there aren’t cross training classes, this is an open gym.
I like being in here during open gym because it isn’t crowded and I can spread out doing my mat, ball and step work. This was taken at 7 am Saturday morning when I was in there by my little lonesome:
It’s also very cold in there, which I don’t like now, although I am sure I will be loving it in the summer.

It was all I could do to go home and go back to work with the nice weather! We did some work on the backsplash cutting the last few tiles and now grouting will be done tomorrow and the wood trim and we will be done! Woo Hoo!
Then we went out for a treat:
This is a new yogurt shop and one even closer will be opening up at the end of the month. And yes, there is cinnamon toast crunch cereal on my yogurt! 😀
Now to get ready for snow…
