The Summer Apple

May 22, 2012

Our sun is OUT!! We’ve been having tons of these gloomy mornings that turn into beautiful days. I’ll take it. I did some sit-down work, then 1.5 hours of housework, then more sit-down work.

Dreaming Of Hot Weather

May 18, 2009

Workout – check. Grocery shopping – check. Lunch – check. Just after blogging we biked to the gym and back with 40 minutes of ellipticalling in-between. Short and efficient. We continued the bike ride to Harris Teeter for some fresh goodies. Collards, chard, green beans, raspberries, bananas, mango, tofu, apple, cuc, spinach, watermelon, peach, 4 […]
