Day of painting

Painted most if the day at work. I really enjoy it. I like seeing how the room and surface change. We painted paneling, and the rooms look much better. One more small powder room to paint next week. My shoulders ache, but a hot bath and a hard cider and a dog head on the lap have helped.

2013 reading list: Little Women

I think this one is going to take me a bit longer than the others, unless I really have a reading filled weekend. And can get the cat off my face so I can read...

More Lazy days

Another day of feeling a little less than myself.  At least spending the day with Eli cheers me up.  I hope I can shake this quickly.

Running in snow

I love it. Today I went running down at Oil Creek. There were a couple inches of snow, but someone had been running before us, and broke the trail. It was cold, but not uncomfortable, and once we got warmed up, it was perfect. Ten miles today, and there was some walking on hills, and there was lots of good talk. I needed a day like today to remind me why I run, and why I love getting out there in the quiet world covered in trees and snow and nature.

Presque Isle

Eli and I were in Erie today, and we stopped at Presque Isle. The snowy landscape was breathtaking.

I made this today, after seeing a video recipe of someone making it online (thank you chef John of Foodwishes). It came out quite tasty, and I was craving something sweet. Nothing like winter that makes me want to curl up with sweets and tea and books.
