I love Saturdays! I finally got caught up my on my sleep last night- a full 8 hours worth. It felt good! :D
We didn’t end up going out to a movie because we couldn’t decide if there were any that we wanted to see badly enough. Many of the movies out now didn’t get rave reviews so we just decided to wait. Then, we decided around 10pm we were going to go for a walk around the city, so we got bundled up and headed out! To rain! Ugh…it was pouring rain so we had to head back inside. I was feeling a bit stir crazy so I decided to get much of my weekend cleaning out of the way early. :D It is nice to wake up to a clean place!
Here is a picture of the Oatmeal Raisin Toffee cookies that I made for Eric’s other co-worker. They are DELICIOUS and savory and scrumptious! Despite having a hard time getting them off the pan (thanks Skor bits!), they were so delicious. I am baking his coworker Jason cookies because he is putting our winter tires on our car for free– score!! (skor?)
Going into the oven:
Result: Chewy, savory, soft cookies!
This morning we have a guest breakfast to feature from the lovely Erin from http://singerin.blogspot.com !
She writes, “The first one is my oatmeal with cranberry jam inside and my first drink of the day,coffee!
Cranberry jam…sounds interesting!
She also says, “The second is my last drink of the day….haha….I know it’s not food but it’s an after-thought after a delicious dinner”
“I like how the pic from my blog is looking at it”
Great pics- thanks Erin!!!
Stay tuned for a guest dinner post tonight! mmm….it is a good one!

Exciting announcement everyone!
I finally decided on the half marathon that I am going to run this Spring! After realizng to my huge disappointment that the Toronto Women’s Marathon is full (it capped at 1,000…wtf!?), I decided to register for the Mississauga Marathon on May 10th 2009! My goal is to be ready to run the half marathon!
I also found this training program for a half marathon, that starts 6 months before the race:
Does anyone have any tips they can give me for training for a half? I am a bit confused about this program- when it says do a tempo run 2 miles- does that 2 miles include the warm up and cool down?
Well, I am off to have some cereal and then go workout! Hope you are having a wonderful start to your weekend!
“I always loved running…it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.”
