Monday Meanderings

on March 12, 2018

Hi there! How was your weekend? Are you making it through your Monday? Daylight Savings has got me like zzzZZZZzzzz. Ready for bed already 😉

We had a pretty fun weekend over here, but before I dive into that, here are two random things for you!

For dinner on Friday, I made this…..

It was absolutely delicious! I am not the biggest fan of cooking and this was pretty much a perfect recipe (super easy!!). Ken was a big fan and it will find its way onto our table again.

Another random…I have had this violet since before B was born. It went through a phase where it didnt bloom and then BAM. I think it likes where it is living!

Brooke was still rocking her cold on Saturday, so we spent most of the day cuddling and watching movies. Ken was out early and headed up to Little Agnes with friends to snowmobile and ski some powder!

While he was out, I got in 5 miles on the treadmill. Felt the knee, but no real pain. Fingers crossed. Once he was home, Jasper needed to get out so I put on my skinny skis and we went for about 1.8 miles. The snow wasnt great, too crusty on top and that made descending pretty sketchy!! The view was okay, though 😉

Ken got my new mountain bike ride-ready and I went out for about 5 miles just to try it out. Pics to come. I am in love.

On Sunday, Brooke was feeling a lot better and had pretty much stopped coughing. Win!! Since Ken was planning to meet friends for a ride, I went out on my new mountain bike at the *new* 8:50 am (so really it was the temperature of 7:50 am…18 degrees to start). It was pretty chilly but I was having such a good time with my bike that I was out for just over an hour. My toes were frozen when I made it home 😉

Ken set out around 10:20 am and rode into town. Met up with a friend and then some other friends and eventually met up with us to drop off his bike at work. Just under 50 miles for him! He ate lunch and I drove us over to the resort for some skiing (we like to fit as many things into a weekend as possible!)

It was Brooke’s (and mine-in this one) first time in the gondola and she thought it was just great!

We had an absolute blast skiing until the lifts shut down. Brooke did fantastic and skied a bunch of runs that she hadnt been able to a couple of weeks ago. It is amazing how fast they progress!

A quick change of clothes and pulling hair out of braids and we were ready to head to dinner at Low’s (a Southern style restaurant). We are celebrating 9 years of marriage on Wednesday (though we have known each other for about 21 years?!).

Not bad for helmet hair 😉

After a delicious dinner, we headed home for some hot tub time before I worked on Ken’s legs and then we headed straight to bed!

This morning, we opted to skip the trainer ride (no thanks to that time change business…would have felt like 4…).

Instead, Brooke and I have been working on chores and cleaning up. Jasper is literally beckoning Spring to show up.

Ken managed to sneak out for a fat bike ride and I went out for a 3 mile jog. No knee brace. Felt the knee on the edge so I went easy and was super cautious. Came home to an ice pack. Please knock it off, knee!

Time to finish up B’s bath and get some dinner prep going. We have a strange week over here and I have a ton of grading to do! Hope you are recovering from the time change…I will take that hour of daylight in the evening, though 😉
