Training time and a SS Win for the Husband!

on October 17, 2017

Howdy folks! How’s it hanging? We are still a little under the weather over here, but digging our way out!

Because Brooke was still icky sickie over the weekend, Ken headed down to Boulder solo on Friday night to get a topper on the truck and then race on Saturday. We were super sad to miss it, but we try not to share the germs with our friends 😉

On Friday, I hit up the trainer for an hour. It was nice and sweaty.

Jasper felt that the morning was better spent in front of the warm stove.

Post workout, Brooke convinced me that we NEEDED to carve her pumpkin.

She was pretty excited (and then grossed out) by the insides.

She felt the need to decorate it with a sticker as well!

Super quality pic of our cuddle time. Missing Dad!!

On Saturday, we spent the morning making slime. One of Brooke’s favorite things!

There were some issues with the online course I teach, so there was a lot of time answering students and working with tech support during the day.

We had a nice little blizzard come in from out of nowhere.

While Ken was racing, I hopped on the trainer so I could ride at the same time as him 😉

My awesome SIL sent be play by play updates on his race! And pictures! (Please note the difference in weather)

It came down to a bike throw at the end and Ken walked away with the W. Sooo sad to miss the race, but so happy to feel like I was there 😉

Post race, Ken headed back home. We were all pretty excited to see him!

He brought Brooke a remote control car and she LOVES it. Jasper on the other hand….glued to my side if it is out!

He brought me treats too!

Sunday morning started off with some pumpkin waffles and whipped cream. Wanna guess what Brooke was playing with?? Terrified of that car! PS the computer is not typically on the dining table, but there was a Cyclocross race on that we were watching.

We spent the day working around the yard/house. Ken installed lights on the front of the shop. Photo coming soon. He let me sneak out for an almost 2 hour ride OUTSIDE which was amazing!!!

It was a nice low key day that included the hot tub…because, why not?!

Monday morning started out early for Ken as he had a 4 day hunting tag and was hoping to get an elk. I know that some people will cringe, but the elk will feed our family for much of the winter and he set out with that in mind, he didn’t head out for the thrill of it.

He managed to get one just up behind our neighbor’s house. The herd made him work for it, for sure. He spent the day working on that endeavor while Brooke and I played around the house.

I took the day as a rest day and enjoyed just relaxing (mixed with chores). Brooke got a special present. Thanks, Mom….giant horse!! They are new besties!

Another dip in the hot tub ended our evening on a great note!

Today has been a little more mellow than yesterday morning. Ken headed into work and we spent the morning doing Highlights sticker searches.

Apparently, she was distraught over not being able to find this one.

We are babysitting the neighbor’s Golden today. Lots of entertainment for sure!!

Now it is time to hit up the chores list and see how the day pans out. Lots of grading to look forward to this evening 😉

Hope you have had a lovely start to the week!!
