I missed last week! It was a whirlwind with DH giving his prelim (he passed and I’m sure it was my baked goodies that sealed the deal - ahem) and a day trip thanks to Amanda to pop my Trader Joe’s cherry. Why oh why did I not buy 6-8 jars of fig butter rather than 2? Now I have all these baked goods I want to use a full jar in, but I can’t get myself to break the seal of one, let alone use an entire jar in one recipe. *sigh*
MAX, Fort Collins’ new rapid transit bus line that spans the city north to south in about 20 minutes premiered on the 10th. Despite our aversion to crowds, DH and I went to check it out because we have been waiting so long for this (DH even did some ground work trying to get it to pass over 20 years ago, although in a different sort of configuration). We caught the 2nd northbound bus and were going to take it to Old Town, but they let too many people on. When we got to the next stop and the bus knelt down it couldn’t get back up so we got out and walked the rest of the way. We did ride it this last weekend to go from the University to the first Larimer County Farmer’s Market because I’m a bit gimpy right now. It worked great!
The Larimer County Farmer’s Market opened on Saturday! Squee! This is by far my favorite and there were a surprising number of vendors for so early in the season. There were lots of starter plants, cheese, coffee beans, hot sauce, emu oil, meats, baked goods, hardy greens and more.
Ice packs and kinesiology tape! I have no idea what happened, but I must have stepped funny on my foot sometime in the first 15 minutes of getting up on Tuesday. Tuesday’s workout seemed to work it out until late afternoon, but then it bothered me from then on. Then, on Saturday morning I put on some kinesiology tape to see if that might help. I was kind of skeptical, but I didn’t want to loose my momentum on the gym going. The first step I took was nearly pain free! I haven’t mapped out Saturday’s walking yet, but I’m pretty sure it exceeded 4 miles and yesterday I mowed all but the west side of the yard. I’m still icing a few times a day and taking ginger, but things are looking much better than Wednesday-Friday! Hopefully I’ll get to shop for new running shoes with my birthday money as my current ones have never been a good fit and are likely at the root of the current issue.
Then of course there are these goofballs! Who, of course thought I was a goofball sending them out into snow on Mother’s Day of all things. They frequently crack me up with their antics.
What gratitude are you greeting your week with?
