Happy Friday everybody! How is the weather where you are? Cold? Snowy? That’s what we’re experiencing once again here in the DC area. We had yet another Snow Day yesterday, and even Preston was home since the Federal Government was also shut down. If you’re anything like me, you’re more than over Winter and ready for Spring to finally make its arrival.
There’s a couple of things that I’ve been loving lately and have been making dealing with Winter’s lingering presence just a bit more bearable.
1. Easy to make Asian dinners
Preston and I enjoyed Pork Fried Rice Sunday night for dinner and then a Sushi Bowl Monday night for dinner. I plan to share the Sushi Bowl recipe with all of you next week.
2. Season 24 of the Amazing Race
Both last Winter and this Winter the Amazing Race has been my go to show to watch on the iPad during long runs on the treadmill. I doubt anywhere close to enough snow will melt between now and tomorrow when I run my planned 5 miles or Sunday when I run my planned 14 miles, so once again I’ll be running on the treadmill. Thank goodness for old episodes of the Amazing Race to help keep me motivated on the treadmill!
3. The Bachelor
I fully admit, I’m a sucker for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I laughed quite a bit while watching the “Women Tell All” episode this past Monday, and can’t wait to watch the season finale on Monday.
4. My Garmin
You may recall that I received my Garmin Forerunner 15 for Christmas from Preston. Although the snow and cold hasn’t allowed me to use it as much as I’d like to, I love all of the data that it provides me with and how much more reliable it is than just using RunKeeper on my phone.
5. Big puppy smiles
I love it when Riley smiles, and I caught him in action while outside on the deck yesterday while it was snowing.
