Rainy Days

Well hello!

Today is one of my favorite days - I woke up to a cloud of fog rolling slowly past my window and the gentle sound of rain. It made me want to stay in bed all day with a cup of tea, bowl of oatmeal and the delicious book I am reading right now. That would make it one of my favorite days. (Side note - the only reason I was okay with this day happening in freakin' JUNE is because we finally had some sunshine the last few days. Ask me last week, and I would have said I'd like to smack the weather right in it's gloomy face. Yeah. That would make some sunshine happen!)

Guess I'll just settle for a bowl of oatmeal in front of the computer at work. Le sigh.

Tuesday's Core Synergistics was a bust again. I just can't get into that one! I even tried to do Ab ripper afterwards to no avail - I just wasn't into it. The "I don't wanna's" had me tight in their grip and weren't letting go. So, I did what anynone do. I made spaghetti. :) Yum! It was fantastic. I didn't even overcook the spelt noodles like I usually do! I kept a good eye on them and they turned out great.

Yesterday was Kenpo, which, as you know, I love. It's fun, and what I think I like most about it is the fact that it's relatively easy but really makes me sweat. I finished up with half of Ab Ripper because I realized it was 7 pm and I still hadn't started the rice for dinner! So, I hopped in and out of the shower and got rolling on dinner. It turned out great - another steak stir fry, minus the noodles, + some brown rice. This one, The Boyfriend had no complaints about! I used less balsamic and added a tablespoon of toasted sesame oil. He couldn't stop saying yum! Always an ego booster. :)

Today is the perfect workout for a lazy, gloomy, rainy day. X Stretch. Yes, I'm serious, there is a day just fro stretching that's not yoga! I'm looking forward to it since I missed it the last ret week due to being ill. And I'm thinking chicken shish kabobs tonight! Or maybe tomato soup and grilled cheese. It's a favorite of ours and always seems to call to us on rainy days. I'll let you know what we decide.

Until tomorrow...

Terrible Tuesdays

Ohhh man. I have a horrible case of the "I don't wanna's." What about you?

I had a fantastic weekend with my friends. On Friday, San Fran drove up from, well San Fran! I greeted her with a bottle of champagne and champagne glasses to decorate for my friend who the bridal shower was for, The Bride.

We proceeded to make 3 beautiful glasses while finishing off the champagne, and I still made some delicious fajitas for us to munch on for dinner!

Then, early the next morning it was off to Portland for bridal Shower weekend. that night, we went to see Sex and the City 2, which was much much much better than I thought it was going to be! I am a huge SATC fan, so the first movie was just about perfect for me - I didn't need any more. I wanted more, of course, but I didn't need it. So I assumed this movie would be horribly cheesy. It wasn't! Well, some parts were, but hey, what can you do? And there were some atrocious outfits, but overall, I really enjoyed it.

the next day was a champagne brunch where I didn't get to enjoy much champagne since I was driving in a few hours, and me and San Fran were able to see some old friends we haven't seen in years. It was overall a really good time.

Then Monday morning came...

Oh, the exhaustion. The grumbling. The grumpiness (have I mentioned how patient The Boyfriend is? And how much I love him for that?).  But I made it through Monday with no outbursts at work, and made it through my bleh Yoga blurh 1 1/2 hour blech workout. I hate it! But, I have noticed a slight increase in my flexibility, so I won't throw it out the window yet. Tonight it's Core Synergistics again, and I'm okay with that one, except that's it's actually pretty hard! And spaghetti for dinner tonight...yum! One of my favorites!

Until tomorrow...
