Quick post just because I have a minute and can:
- For some reason I am working four night this week. This after being gone every evening the last two weeks for the older two girls’ rehearsals (they were in a local musical.) My husband misses me, the twins ask everyday when I am leaving….I am not pleased with this. Soccer starts next week, so it will be him leaving me for about 6 weeks. What goes around comes around, right? Oh, and school starts in three weeks and 4 days. Enough said.
- I have not been cooking much with the whole rehearsal and working thing, but I do have a very tasty salad I want to share with you as soon as I perfect the dressing. I took it to a reunion this weekend where it was promptly devoured. If you do not like cilantro, don’t hold your breath for this one. Right now, though, I have a huge pot of chicken stock brewing. My house smells so good it is near torture! Stock is one of those things that is so easy you wonder why more people do not just make their own. This batch has a whole chicken in it (minus head and most of the insides), the bones of another chicken, 4 feet (scrubbed and scored), carrots, bay leaves, sage from the herb garden, peppercorns, onions, and a bit of salt. I’d take a picture and share, but the toenails poking up just aren’t pretty. I hope to have 4 quarts of broth when I am done and I will have plenty of chicken to use in salads and meals.
- Running is going well. I finished week 3 of Couch to 5K and am looking forward to week four. Due to all the being out of the house this last couple weeks, the running has done little to nothing for my weight, but I can cope. On my last run, when my music told me to stop running for the last time I felt like going more and I did. That was my best run ever. I finished without gasping for breath, feeling like I had more to give, but knowing I worked my body hard. I really want to be able to run all of a 5K and every week that passes I can see that being more of a reality. On to week four which increases the running some, but also decreases the walking…that might kick me in the hind end. The music for week three had a beat that kept me at a better pace, but I wasn’t fond of the music. I hope this week’s pod-cast is better so far as the music.
