Currently, in the North Land


Are you guys experiencing this snow beast? This was our view on the way to the gym this morning. It came down hard last night. I hate driving in it! My little Scion IQ is a ninja, though; she be but tiny but fierce. On the bright side, we had a great workout this morning!

Wearing: These slippers from Target. Very cozy for the nice 12 degree weather we are having.

Reading: The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien; we went to see movie #2 and it gave me the craving to read it. I haven't read it since high school. So far, the movies have been a lot more accurate than I expected (besides Legolas prancing around).

Eating: Not much. We ate all the things in the house. We are going grocery shopping tomorrow, because we are all out of delicious foods. Tonight for a snack, I made my own frosted flakes; we had some corn flakes leftover from a recipe, and I sprinkled sugar on top. Reminds me of when I used to go to my grama's house when I was a kid, and she never had Lucky Charms or anything; it was always plain Rice Krispies you had to sprinkle your own sugar on top of. I'm not complaining; they're still yummy.

Watching: We watched Blackfish on Netflix; it's an awesome documentary. If you haven't seen it yet, I recommend it. We went to Seaworld for the first time last year, and this gives me a totally different perspective on it. Although Greg didn't seem to agree with a lot of it, but he's just the argumentative type.

Working On: Running - I ran a couple (few? can't remember) days this week, and my calves are killing me! They only hurt when I do sprints, but I know a varied run is better for you than a same-pace run, so I try to involve some change towards the end.

Loving: This crazy, so-ugly-it's-cute running shoe. My Nike Free's lasted me for a while, but I had to give them up after I started getting pain in the balls of my feet. I switched to a shoe with more cushion, and now I don't have that problem. I also heard that alternating between two running shoes could be good for your feet.

    1. My old car used to spin around constantly in the snow...on the interstate. Terrifying! I'd so much rather stay inside and cuddle up if I didn't have to go to work.

  3. Pete had Blackfish on the other day when I came home from work and I made him turn it off. I can't watch. I feel like it will make me too sad/mad.

    1. This one time we decided to watch an episode of Planet Earth, and now I can't eat hamburgers. It involved a baby buffalo, and it was very sad :(. Now all I can see is that baby buffalo when I see a burger. Blackfish will for sure make you mad!!
