I’ve really hit the ground running in the book department this year. My longer commute has become opportune time for audio books (thanks, Jillian!) and quiet winter nights are simply made for reading by the fire. I’ve added the four above to my completed list and am working on Brooklyn and Modern Romance currently. Because I have the attention span of a fly, I present you with very brief recaps and thoughts on the above works. Send any other book recommendations my way, please!
Holy moly, guys, taking and teaching five spin classes in the last three days may have been a bit much. I’m sore. I’m tired. And I’m really craving a burger. Thankfully the burger is the on menu for this afternoon and I’ve got some yoga on the agenda too! I’ll be ship-shape by Monday morning, hopefully, because it’s another busy week ahead. Work is ramping up, I’m teaching cycle again and I’m taking on a few extra projects here and there. Keep you posted between the chaos, of course, but for now enjoy these links from around the web this week!
Did anyone else feel like this week was a total blur? I blinked and now it’s Friday! I’ve got some butterflies in my stomach as I prep for my first classes at Cycle Society tonight but I’ve got an army of supportive friends and co-workers joining the party so that should put me at ease in no time! After two hours on the bike tonight, tomorrow morning will definitely not include an alarm clock or an agenda. It will, however, include a large cup of tea (my new addiction) once I roll out of bed. I’ll see you Sunday with a full recap of the events, of course. Until then!
I woke to a high of -7 degrees today and contemplated not leaving bed at all but my better judgment got the best of me and I’m vertical. That’s not to say there isn’t a nap in my future! That’s about all this weather is good for. And links! It’s good for some links from around the web this week. Enjoy!
For the first time in a long while, I have an empty house all to myself this weekend! Well, empty of humans. Of course, puppy will be by my side. While I would hope for a scene similar to the above, the next two days will actually be spent on a bike rather than the empty abode! I’ve been working with a new, local spin studio, Cycle Society, since July and the grand opening is just around the corner! If you’re in the Twin Cities, stop next week for a free ride (or five) on us! And be sure to enjoy your weekend, near and far.
At our old house the Red Head and I had an ongoing debate about whether or not to paint our dining room built-in. He won and it remained original but had I seen this image before today I might have had a stronger argument!
