February 15th, 2009: Scott’s Birthday!

Hi gang!  When last we left off, I was about to hit the couch.

Part of Scott’s birthday celebrations include dessert.  So while we watched some TV last night, we had some wine and these two macaroons.  The one on the left is blueberry lavender with dark chocolate filling.  The one on the right is pistachio.  I had the left and Scott had the right.  I also had two small bites of his but did not finish mine, maybe leaving 1/3 of it?  It was really yummy but all I tasted was the chocolate, no blueberry or lavender at all.  We got these from WF.  After watching some Planet Earth I headed up to bed for some sleep around 10:30.  I was pooped!

What a day today, started early and still going strong. :D  I woke up at 7:30 this morning and got right to business.  I got Rocky fed and taken care of, then it was out the door for my run.  And I ran, and ran, and ran!  First I had half a blueberry Clif bar.

Then I changed into running clothes and busted out the door.  It was cool but great running weather, I wore my hoodie today.  I knew I was going to do at least 4.5 miles today and if I felt good enough a little more.  Last week had a lot of small runs and I didn’t do anything at all yesterday but shop and well I’m not really counting that as activity. ;)  When I got to the point where I was starting the last loop to make it 4.5, I extended the run and did a few more loops.  I have no idea how far I ran, I just ran and enjoyed being outside with the sun.

When I got home I kicked the CS which was a glass and a half.  Mmmm Then it was back outside for Rocky’s walk.  It was as this point it started getting a little colder and clouding over.  When we got back home, I did a quick yoga session and sat down to have my coffee.

Yum, peppermint!  With a pumpkin muffin I had in the freezer.  I heated it up in the micro quick and ate my breakfast while looking over some blogs.  I did a wee post about Scott and then laid on the couch and read for a bit.  Scott woke up around 11:30ish?  And I got up to make us a proper breakfast.

I did keep it “light” today because I knew dinner would be early.  I had 1/2 an asiago bagel and a quarter of a frittata.  I put the leftover asparagus from last night in with the eggs and topped that with cheddar, then baked it.  We also had an orange and some dried apricots.  Mim-faux-sas to drink!

After Sunday Breakfast, I prepped dinner while Scott and Rocky went outside to play for a bit.  Then I joined them and played fetch with Rocks.  He might not be a retriever, but he’ll play fetch with you for ages. :D  When we came back inside, we played the demo for Lego Batman.  Oh goodness this game is just too cute!  I love it!

Then it was time for dinner!

Birthday Dinner!

Birthday Dinner!

Scott’s favorite thing ever is ham and every year for his birthday, I make him one. :D  Along with the ham there was carrots, baked sweet potato, and some corn on the cob from the summer that I had frozen.  Oh it was soooo good!  I’m calling it my 1/2 dinner because I ate 1/2 of everything that was on my plate.  We had wine fizzies to drink with dinner and I had 1/2 of that too!

Now it’s time to hit the couch again with my love and play some more games.  Maybe watch a movie too!  See you guys tomorrow!
