I had a lovely surprise today!
I knew I was running this evening so this morning was just a walk. I got dressed and headed out into the cloudy day, got halfway up the hill and it started to pour; then just as I got to the point where I would turn around it started to get brighter so I kept going. Of course when I stopped to read the sign I’ve been curious about the last few weeks, I hit the wrong button and ended my run so then the second half didn’t even count:(. Can you tell it was a calamity of errors. I was so frozen, I let myself stop for tea at Starbucks on the way home!
I did a quick lunge and squat workout this afternoon. It looked so simple, but I don’t even want to think about how many of each o ended up doing!!!
This evening I got out for a run with Dennis. We did a local park which is all hills. I have actually ran this park both ways and it is within meters of the same both ways with equal amount of hills! You just can’t win! I did better than I thought I would!
About a month ago I had a parent in my classroom send me a recipe for vegan fettuccini Alfredo and today with the rain, I finally had the chance to try it:). The recipe was simple easy and turned out super yummy! Unfortunately I ruined the pasta by cooking it in too small of a pot so I have no good pictures to show you:(.

Ice Cream/ Family:
I got the best phone call after lunch today- from my nephew Gus. I already don’t want to consider the day he doesn’t want to hang out with Auntie AJ! He asked to go for ice cream which is always okay with me😀 I had a quick visit with my adorable fur nephew Banks:)
At first he thought Menchies or Dairy Queen, but thankfully he finally decided on TCBY. It was close to home, but I didn’t have high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised.
There were actually four options I could have which is more than I get at Menchies. One was vegan-almond milk chocolate and then there were three sorbets- strawberry kiwi, orange and mango. I ended up with a rainbow in my cup by trying a bit of each.
I would give TCBY a 3 out of 5 because I really do like finding creamy vegan ice cream and this was definitely sorbet.
Gus went crazy of course and had a much more complex dish. He chose cookie butter and cotton candy frozen yogurt. He said the cotton candy actually tasted like cotton candy. He then loaded up on the toppings which he said there was a good assortment of. He had strawberry pearls, crushed Oreos, cookie dough, crushed Skor, nerds, mini m&ms, and caramel drizzle.
Gus gives this place a 4.2 out of 5, worse than the Sweet Tooth creamery because the frozen yogurt didn’t taste as good as the ice cream.
I spent a bit of time hanging out with him and Banks- always the best part of a day!!!!
I am already halfway through my rug square for the week!!!😀
I have separated the sleeves from the body and have commenced on 13.5″ of stockinette in the round. I predict a lot of Hallmark movies in my future!!
Oh and I just had to show you the cute cup set I got from another teacher. The kid drive her crazy all year so she wasn’t in to keeping a “kitschy” gift from him, but I never taught him and thought it was cute, so I grabbed it!
Well I guess that’s it for me!
