Permanent Visitor

August 3, 2010

I am very excited because tonight one of our good friends (from Iowa) is flying in tonight. . . . to live here! We hardly get any friends or family who come to visit, so we are excited that a good friend of our’s, who is very much like a sister to us, that is actually going to be living up here!!


Since I ran twice yesterday, I took it easy with a 5-miler this morning. My hamstrings were sore, but other than that I felt fine. Plus the sun was shining!! It has been an incredibly cloudy summer–and lots of rain–so I love every ounce of sunshine we get!


I quickly snatched up two Healthy Carrot Cake Power Scuffins when I got back from my run. What a great treat after working out–good carbs and just a tad sweet!

I am saving the last one for Craig to try.

Steamy, hot oats with dried cherries and coconut on top.

After breakfast and a shower, I spent my time this morning getting our guest bedroom ready (for our friend), cleaning the bathroom, and doing laundry. I really don’t mind doing those things. I like the result of everything being clean and organized. (Yes, I admit it, I am a ‘type A’ personality.)


Craig and I had a picnic outside and enjoyed a lunch I packed for us.

Tuna sandwich on a thin bun with tomato, lettuce, and cheddar cheese.

Leftover brussel sprouts from last night’s meal. (I like them better warm.)Crisp veggies to munch on. (I didn’t have all of these–primarily just the carrots and cucumber slices. I do not care for celery.)

Time to go and fold some laundry and run to the grocery store. See ya later!
