Getting back to normal…whatever that is

I still have unpacking to do and a lot of chores left undone, but I’d rather hang out with you. 

Blogging > chores

I love traveling, but I also like coming home and getting back to normal.  And eating on my own schedule.  😉

Y’all know how much I love running, but sometimes I’m just not in the mood.  That was how I felt this morning, but I knew once I got out there, I’d feel a lot better.  It worked!

So I went for a 3 mile run on the trail.  It was 52 & foggy, perfect running weather.

You can’t tell by this picture, but the trail was packed with people running, cycling, bird watching and walking their dogs.  Being around active people makes me happy.

After Mike & I went to lunch, Target & grocery shopping.  We have no food and would have had to eat shriveled up grapes and bagel thins with a side of pickles for dinner.

I requested Mike’s made from scratch marinara with meat sauce for dinner.  I am pretty sure this was much better than the above idea.

Mike also has a fresh loaf of bread in the bread machine right now.  The smell of fresh bread baking is heavenly.   

Funny story.  Sometimes we go yard sale hopping and one time I found a William Sonoma bread machine.  I asked how much and they said $20.  It was only used twice.  Score for us!!

My grandma (she’s quite the gardener) gave us pomegranates, persimmons & lemons.  So today I seeded a few pomegranates to put on salads this week. 

Since they stain fabric, I’ve found the easiest way to seed them is to cut them in quarters, put water in a medium bowl and gently peel them under the water.  That way they don’t  squirt on you.  The last one I was working on actually got me when I pulled it out of the water too soon.  Punk.

Welp, I need to email my doc.  I’ll update you guys soon.

Have a wonderful evening!

Something random…


What’s a new to you food you tried recently?

Anyone doing a Christmas run?  Locals, which one(s) would you recommend?

  1. I can’t think of anything new I have tried lately… I seem to get in food ruts, having the same thing over and over, day after day.

    I would love to do a Christmas run! But I haven’t been released to run since being in a car wreck in August. It’s been a long three months. Hopefully soon that will change!

  2. There is a Christmas run here and instead of a race bib, you get a FULL Santa costume with a beard and everything. I think it’s called the Chasing Santa Run and it’s just a sea of red. I’m thinking about signing up because I think it would be hilarious
