As you know, I bake poticas with my mom every year, we bake for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. This year my little sister took over grinding the nuts and making the filling which was my job for the past 25+ years.
I took over Moms job and am now rolling the dough. It’s a lot of work and I’m not sure how she makes it look so easy. After rolling out 6 different doughs, I finally got one that was nearly perfect. We roll the dough out to about the length of a table so it’s not easy.
My in-laws wanted to take me out for a belated birthday dinner. I had to cancel on the first one due to a freak allergic reaction. However, we rescheduled and I made it out last night. Have I mentioned I won in the in-laws lottery?
And I’m not saying that because they took us to Strip Steakhouse in Avon yesterday.
Ryan and I were both sporting the collared shirt and sweater combo. I’ve been channeling fashion tips from the new show Ravenswood. My new guilty pleasure show.
And the best news ever, I’m running again!!!! Just a little bit though. I took off a complete week and then Monday and Tuesday I ran 2 miles. Slowly. On the treadmill. Wednesday I ran 3 miles outside and this morning I ran 4 miles outside. In that week off we went from fall like temps to winter temps.
We woke up Tuesday to a couple inches of snow on the ground. I was pretty sure Bodhi would be a wimp about it but he jumped right in and loved it! He was shaking from the cold but still wanted to play.
The goal for running now is to get a longish run in on Saturday and see how my rib cage holds up and if all is well I may be able to get a half marathon in at the end of the month and then start training for the Green Jewel 50K.
Oh and before I forget! I’ll be blogging for the Cleveland Marathon 2014, so happy to be included in this event!
